Today Jazz (the white boxer and one of the family's furkids) came for a visit to the hydro. She introduced herself to Duncan (an older client) in an almost restrained way. Duncan was very grown up about it all and soon tired of her exuberance.
Mowgli, a Newfoundland and a new client, comes to the hydro to treat the arthritis in his hips. He receives Photizo light therapy and a gentle therapeutic swim. Supposedly a waterdog, Mowgli isn't fond of his swim and needed to be shown the ropes a bit. He'll get the hang of it after a few sessions.

Mr Brown having his first swim without a life jacket. He's come on really well. Initially he wasn't too happy to go in the water and had to be coaxed in, and now he goes in by himself, knows exactly what to do, where to go and how to do it...all on his own. We're his impressed spectators and sideline coaches.

Colleen was humanely sent to doggie heaven last week. The calcification of her spine spread into her other leg and she became paralysed and was in a lot of pain.
Colleen, we know you have an endless supply of pine cones to play with and a strong healthy body.
Slow introduction to the water using liver treats
Here I go!! Fetching the ball with a little help from my friends
Kalea the pretty dobie girl has had her first and second swim. She's still a little unsure of herself in the water and doesn't have a tail to keep her "behind" boyant so the pool noodle does the trick while she learns the finer art of swimming.
