Here's our All Hands on Pet book review. The full title is All Hands on Pet - Your How-To Guide on Home Physical Therapy Methods for Pets, and the book is written by veteran physical therapist Susan E. Davis. Inside you'll find deep information for dogs and later in the book even ideas for cats, birds, and other pets. I only read the dog parts. Here's what I think about the book.
People sometimes contact me after reading the pet loss book I wrote (called Heart Dog: Surviving the Loss of Your Canine Soul Mate). People often ask about feeling guilty about getting a new dog after your dog dies. I have a theory about love that might help.
Looks like I waited TOO LONG to write about our success completely rebuilding Clover's agility teeter-totter training last summer. It was going so well that Clover even did the agility teeter-totter at our group class in early October 2017. Alas, in recent weeks, Clover has gone back to treating the agility teeter-totter like her sworn enemy (again). If nothing else, dog training gives people the chance to practice patience and creativity. Thank goodness I shot some video of what worked last summer so that I can try the same things again. Cute 1-minute video ahead.
I pay an annual membership fee (to JibJab) so that I can make silly holiday videos (for all major holidays). It's almost embarrassing how much these videos make me laugh. If you need a giggle break amid your own holiday hubbub, don't miss Clover and Tori starring in Elf Fun Factory, Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree, Super Santa, and Twinkle All the Way. (P.S. I make a cameo in one of the videos!)
Clover saw the board-certified veterinary internal medicine specialist again last Saturday. We rechecked her CBC (complete blood count), and I'm happy to report things continue to improve. I even made a neat chart to explain how things look with her latest canine neutrophil counts. Yay!
