I'll get a picture posted when I get home tonight. I'm not necessarily trying to bulk him up beyond what he should be, I'm just trying to get him to look healthy. Right now, he doesn't look healthy....

That does help. Last night, we tried keeping him off the couch all night. That wasn't working very well. He would get really agitated and whine and move around and just never settle down, which I...

Aah. Now that makes sense. I think I was thinking the "place" had to be a specific place that never changed. So I thought we could call it "bed" because it was always going to be his bed in the...
