    Congrats.... :thumb:

    Yes ...give him a Bo_Se shot ....and nutradrench.... of A&D won't hurt either....

    Make a brace for his weak leg...and support the leg so it doesn't bend awkward.......and he will be OK soon.... it is the tendons that are weak...it was the way he was in the womb..... :hug:
