This little tyke, the runt of the litter, was found in a tree stump with his mother and four siblings.  Unable to compete for mother’s milk, Chuckie nearly died from a severe upper respiratory infection.  He was bottle fed in foster care, after which he was happily adopted and renamed Jockamo (see his latest antics on PAWS Humane Society Facebook).

It would be so nice to see some green peeking out from under the snow in time for the “wearing of the green” on St. Patrick’s Day. 

Maybe we’ll see some in time for April 17.
