Something New

I'm finally feeling my age

Well, mommy says I've been "bunny hopping" down stairs for a while now. I haven't seen any bunnies, though. I'd sure like to chase one if I see one.

I've been going to the chiropractor, and I love Dr. Jan! She pets me all over, moves a hips there, pushes a shoulder a little over there, and then I go down the stairs like normal for about a week or so. I had to miss a week, and now I'm hopping a lot. I did get acupuncture on Friday that helped, but tonight mommy pressed on my hips just a little bit, and I yelped. Luckily, I have chiro on Tuesday and acupuncture on Friday. Mom will also ask about increasing my glucosamine and if it's time to consider Rimadyl or some other anti-inflammatory.

I still feel young, but I just can't run or jump or fetch like I used to. Still, I'm doing great for a pup who will be 12 in July (just before mommy's wedding!).

Oh Aiki, I hope you are doing better. It really is awful getting old, I feel for you. We'll say some prayers for you too, just to help you feel better.
