I have been one busy woof dog lately. I've been helping my people around the house, helping my woman with work and school, going for walks, playing in my pool, swimming, and seeing vets.
I get to play in my pool most nights now that the weather has been so dry. Our air conditioner has been on 2 times this month!!!
I've been having good luck finding balls on my walks lately. I have a pretty big baseball collection now. And I even discovered a new park!
My people have found 2 ticks! One was crawling on me and one was crawling on our driveway early one morning. We aren't supposed to have ticks here. Ick!
I went to a new pool last time to swim. The pool I always go to was closed so they could have some kind of competition. I got into the pool I used to go to but I also tried out a pool that is on our side of the river. It was more like where I go now so we decided to use it instead of the old pool. I had fun but it will be nice to be at my pool this weekend!
I've been getting to go to work with my woman sometimes. I keep one of the dogs under control while she works.
She also found out this month that the animal aromatherapy school changed their classes when they went online this month so, instead of being really close to being done, she now will have a hard time finishing.
I've been helping her try to get stuff she's already done changed over to an acceptable computer type thing. We've been working on that all month.
Even though she finished Level 1 over a year ago, and got a piece of paper to show she passed it, she now has to take it again and do 4 more case studies.
And she can't go on to any other level until she finishes Level 1. She was only waiting to finish up the last 2 (out of 10) case studies for Level 2 and had started 4 case studies for Level 3 when she found out she needed to re-do Level 1.
She still doesn't have anything nice to say about the school for not telling her a year ago about the change in the number of case studies for Level 1. I have learned some new and interesting cuss words this month!!
Last Thursday morning I got off my bed and tried to stand on the top of my paw instead of on the bottom like I should. My woman did some massage and got me to where I would put it down the right way but not want to put any weight on it. By the end of the night, 5 hours of massage, and several aromatherapy sessions, I was doing much better but still limping.
Friday was my rehab vet appointment. The rehab vet was afraid it was an injury to the doggy version of the Achilles Tendon from the massage reports my woman sent in. The best guess was when I ran into a stick with my ribs hard enough to make me stagger, it tightened everything up and caused all the problems. She beat on my leg with a hammer. She tried to claim she was testing my reflexes
but I just know she was trying to kill me! I had some acupuncture, some chiropractic work, and a little more massage and I'm back to normal.
This month is vet month. I had my normal rehab vet visit Friday, Monday my vet came to my house and did my Senior Wellness Check, and next week I see my eye doctor for my 6-month recheck for my Pannus.
