Rain and rainbows

These last two weeks have been a bit quiet because of all the rain we've been having. Now that the sun is shining here is hoping that it is here to stay for a while. Although rain may dampen some people's spirits it did not upset the animals too much - they were as full of energy - if not more - then ever.

Rain, rain go away. There was so much rain this month we could practically watch the grass grow.

The ridgebacks made it for their bi-weekly swim just before the rain hit.

Here we have Magic. She came for her first visit to the hydro, She tagged along with Mr Brown and the other girls.

Mr Brown hurt his leg, we gave him a treatment to relieve the pain. What a brave man he is!

Michelle, The Pied Piper.

The Dobermans also made their swim - they had their measurements taken so we can track their progress. Both Hansie and Troy have gone from lopsided measurements to perfectly balanced statures.

Piper came along and boy was she surprised - she got to take a free swim in the big pool - and she loved it. Piper did fantastically well.

Sally, the 5 year old Daschund, we started treating this delightful lady she has huge spirit!
She had an operation for a spinal lesion and needs treatment to get her back into the habit of using her legs again.

Sanjay (Duncan's Dad) spent some time getting to know Sally and her Dad.

Sally was not to sure what to expect on her first swim.

Sally's legs being massaged by the jets in the pool.

This handsome man is Tyson - He is getting old and his legs are a bit painful. He is such a gentle old man and loved his massage.

Gizmo came along with Tyson. There was a storm brewing (yet again) and she was feeling a bit apprehensive.

Apart from the rain we had to be vigilant when we swam - A pair of Plovers have a nest with babies on the property. These brave souls guard it relentlessly - sending every one ducking and diving as we are trying to swim.

Christine was getting too close for comfort.
