Warm weather is here at last! :)

R.I.P Ceasar.
This wonderful teddy Bear's weak joints just could no longer support his weight and his family had to make the very difficult decision to release him from his pain. Although he was still a "baby" he made a huge impact on all who came into contact with him.

Spring has well and truly sprung. The weather is balmy and the plant life is once again waking up, it is so exciting to see the fresh green shoots!
The animals are also enjoying the opportunity to start swimming.

Cindy's dogs all came for a visit - little did they know they were going to be taught to swim!

Help Let Me Out!!! Michelle trying to sell Basil on the benefits of swimming!

Not so bad, but don't let go!

OK I have had enough now!

Storm, who is now 14 years old had to come along to supervise.

Not all animals co-operate with us

4 year old cross Maltese/jack Russell, Astro, is recovering after a surgery for a herniated disc.

Surfs up! Riding on the boogie board.
If she doesn't want to do the surfing she lays down on the board - she is such a strong character!

Hold me tight Michelle!

The big softy Tarzan...

Tarzan, the 3 year old BoerBoel had surgery for a cruciate ligament. He looks so forlorn with his Elizabethan collar.

Inspecting the Photizo

The many stitches he is constantly trying to pull out (he was successful once)

Another Puppy came to us with a joint problem.

Bingo, a 5 month old ridgeback, exercising on the peanut, the tendons in his front right leg have contracted. He has been fitted for an orthopedic brace, which will form a large part of his rehab.

Not to sure about the floatation jacket.

While their dog, Bingo, was having his therapy, Mia and her little brother had fun at the jungle gym.

Angela was one of the first to bring her dogs back for a swim, and of course Troy came along.
Troy - a long haired Shepard - after a hair cut. The new "do" seemed to give him a new lease on life. He was behaving like a spring chicken!

A family reunion took place between the pets in the extended family.

Basil and Nicholas watching Stitch swim.

Roxy and Hera making friends.

Phoebe and Maya joined Hera for a visit to Mom's work.
