We just got an email from Shoeless Joe's family! The volunteer who received the email said:
They are taking him to a very special surgery-only vet office that is around here. The place is called Vetcision and puts most human hospitals to shame. They just want to see if anything can be done for his esophagus and breathing problems so he can get excited and stay excited without having to take a break.
I'll keep everyone posted on Shoeless' vet visits. "
Oh, Shoeless Joe, how we have loved you from the first time we saw you!
The boy has a hankering for the open road, and that's all there is to it. We trust his new family can keep his feet from traveling now that Joe has entered his elder years.
He's the cream in our coffee, the beef in our stew, the nubbin on the bulldog, oh Shoeless, we love you! from the poetaster of the day,
The Frog Princess
