Hi Katharine

<<I love Ulrike's terminology of "off their legs".
I call it "down in the rear".>>

A mix of being German and using British English I guess. ;-) But I didn't
mean down in the rear but being unstable on all legs like being drunk and
not being able to control body movements... That's how my Tom is. Right
now he's almost crawling, today he moved forewards (can't call it "walk"
anymore...) not using just his feet but he was on his front feet and
forelegs because I guess he wasn't stable on his feet alone so had to use
his front legs to at least sort of balance his body... If only I knew what
was wrong, it's driving me insane here... :-( I guess it'll be some sort
of cancer in the spine or head...

and Jilly, Jack, Bella, Tom, Mason, Baby, Dana, Fox, Reno, Rose, Jasmine,
Spike, Hobo, Gremlin and Bobby
