I hope he's feeling better :(

Thanks, Laura.
He seems to be a lot better today. We gave him one of those hunting dummy toys to play with and he immediately shredded it. I took it away from him right away, but I guess he managed to eat some of the stuffing and fabric. The next day, he was really bloated (and extremely gassy). When he laid on his side, his stomach looked huge. I was afraid he twisted his stomach, so we took him to the ER. They found the stuffing/fabric in the X-ray and induced vomiting, but the stuff didn't come up. So now I am watching him carefully and feeding him hamburger and rice to try and get him to pass the fabric and stuffing. It was a really emotional day yesterday when I thought he was going to die. :(
