I have been on a brilliant adventure today. To help me with my loose hips, my Humums said I should go to something called “Hydrotherapy”. That is a posh word for paddling on a treadmill.😂

I trotted off well with the hydrotherapist and my Humums were pleasantly surprised, as I can be a bit shy with new people, but I liked Shelby 😁.

I was very wiggly when they tried to measure my muscles in my back surprise there, I love wiggling. 😂

I was a little nervous of the treadmill as it made some strange noises when it filled up with water and then started moving, but Shelby helped me. I quickly learnt that the sides of the treadmill didn’t move 🤣.

Shelby and all at the vets fell in love with me❤ and she said I did ok for my first session, considering my Humums couldn’t go in with me. I did zoomies at the end 🤣🤣🤣

I am hoping to have some more sessions as I think I will be more relaxed in there next time and they can get working on building up my muscles.

I am very tired now and dreaming of going paddling again next week.

Poorly Puppy

My Humum’s have been noticing that I don’t always put the full weight through my back left leg, so they took me to The Doggy Doctors. The Doggy Doctor said she agreed with my Mum’s and that they needed to have a closer look to see what was going on, so I went in for some x rays today.

They said my knees and hocks were fine, but my left hip joint was a bit loose, and causing the ball to slip and slide about a bit. They keep talking about a person called “a physio” who will help build up the muscle mass around my joint to keep it tighter.

I didn’t feel very well after the visit to the Doggy Doctors and didn’t want to get out of Kate’s van she we got home. Kate carried me in and a have been sleeping lots every since.

It’s been a long day. 😥
