"That's right, Internet. I'm back in boot camp to plump up my booty."
"After all, bikini season is just around the corner."
For the time being, Juno is back in Physical Therapy every week to help build up muscle and release a lot of tight knots in her back end. Having Juno has made us realize that Physical Therapy is not a one time event for dogs with structural challenges. Instead it's a healing service to use for a lifetime, on an as-need basis. For now, it's weekly. When the time is right, we'll ween down to monthly maintenance again.
"Energy bars are an important part of training."
"Some spas like this one, even have Jacuzzi jets in their water therapy tanks, which are an added benefit for fluffing the jodhpurs."
"After the water workout, it's time for some ultrasonic laser therapy to lightly massage my knots."
"It doesn't hurt but must she cross so many boundaries? Geesh. She should at least buy me a drink first."
"It's difficult being gorgeous. Everyone wants a piece of my Jodhpurs."
"WTF are you doing back there Madam Jenny? Remember, my Jodhpurs are sacred!"
"I can ignore the myofascial release torturer behind me for the price of that chicken treat."
"Suddenly, I feel vewey, vewey, sweepy. I have no idea why."
NB: This is the effect of the myofascial release. Just before it releases or at the moment it releases, the patient stops fidgeting and protesting and before you know it . . .
Plop! Relaxation is inevitable. Juno always lets out a huge sigh as she plops. It's like magic!
"My Jodhpurs are cooked for the day!"
I wish I treated myself as well as well as I treat Juno.
"It's important to show gratitude to your physical
torturer therapist, no matter how many times she ignored your orders to stop man-handling your Jodhpurs!"
A good physical therapist, dog or human, is invaluable. We're all loving how Juno is feeling these days!
No cash for the treat jar but you'd like to show the love? No problem! Connect with me on LinkedIn and endorse my creative writing skills. Thanks for the love!
"Your project is guaranteed to meet superior Siberian standards or I will fatally masticate it. You have my "woo" on that!"
"I keep your project safe from crows, coyotes, and flies. I prefer to be paid in salmon treats and tennis balls."
"I manage the treat jar & the staff's daily payroll of cookies and bones. The staff is excellent at math and let me know when I come up short."
