The other day Alayne heard Wilbur start snorting and saw his blanket start moving, and then he popped his head out from under one end of his fleece blanket. His eye looks a bit peculiar because of the absence of the lens, so you're seeing the light from the camera flash illuminating the fluid inside the eye, with the retina in the back. And yes, that little tongue is usually hanging out to the side like that -- actually, it's often sticking out a bit more. After he had his dental when he first arrived here and lost all but six teeth, his tongue sticks out on the right side of his mouth. He still has an upper canine tooth on the left side, which must be what keeps it from hanging out on that side.
Here he is with Pip, showing his more usual "tongue-look":
A couple of weeks ago when we were taking dogs to see specialists in Burlington, we had our internal medicine specialist look at Wilbur's mouth and tongue just to make sure everything was okay with it. And it is - the tongue is just one of his many endearing features!
