Welcome to our new site. I’m not done unpacking yet, I still have plenty to add, but I thought it was time to welcome everyone. Coffee pot is always on, come on in and meet the hounds of Greyhound Gardens.
Roxy is our oldest greyhound, she’ll be 15 in September. She is doing remarkably well even with heart murmur that was detected when we adopted her at 9 years old. She’s started showing signs of weakness in her hind end, and we are really hoping that hydrotherapy will give her the strength boost she needs.
Laurie is the hydrotherapy trainer at Everything Pawsible in Salem. To say the very least, I think Laurie is the best. I have watched her with dogs for over 10 years and she just has a way with dogs.
Roxy relaxed totally in the water.
Of course, after her first time in the pool she zonked.
Laurie continued with other dogs while Roxy rested.
This guy has clearly been taking hydrotherapy for awhile, he was demonstrating to Laurie how to do it.
And seriously, what good is swimming if you can’t play in the pool?
I think this is called the dog paddle.
It’s been three hours since she had the hydrotherapy. She is doing fabulous. Her legs aren’t weak, she was ready for her dinner and has strolled around the yard.
We go back tomorrow and then once a week for as long as she needs it.
I’m totally impressed.
