Pokey would be very proud of you for what you have done for Manny! You are honoring Pokey's memory, and that is very wonderful.
I'm not trying to spend your money, but are you taking Manny to the vet for a full check-up? I'm guessing he may never have had one with those "other people".
Also, I'd like to ask that everybody go to the site in doxie's signature line and donate some free kibble to the pups and kitties in honor of Manny's new family situation!! They just ask you a simple doggie and kitty question...and you don't even have to get the answers right for them to donate some kibble! Everybody go donate!!!
