    After this, you need to remove the stems, cut them into smaller pieces, and serve them in half a watermelon. He's having to work too hard. Actually, why not teach him to open his mouth and you can toss them in, piece by piece? Don't forget the watermelon afterwards. [emoji23]

    ~ Well, sorta....we are testing the waters..........he is out in spurts. He needs constant water sources, his bladder prolapses and we suspect it is inactive or dysfunctional. He seems very happy with the bigger adults, however we are simply just seeing how things go, he is only about eighty pounds.
