Doggy Massage

Credit: wordpress.com

OK, I gotta' admit that at one time I definitely would have thought of massaging a dog as just a bit too woo-woo for me.  (Woo-woo is technical speak for new age.) 

That was before I had a really, really, ancient dog with whom I love spending any time that he has left on this earth pampering and making feel oh so good.

And man does he love it.  I mean, he even makes little happy noises as I massage his little old arthritic body.  And when I stop he looks at me like: 'Hey, I was enjoying that.  Don't try to short change me here!'

This is no regular petting session.  Oh no, my dog Parker likes a good deep rub down.  I figured this out when my husband was petting him kind of roughly one day and Parker really reacted positively to it.  You could honestly tell that the harder you rubbed him the more he loved it.

Now he will actually sit down beside you in a chair and push the entire length of his body up against your side to prompt you to start in with a massage.  Pets are funny that way.  They will get their message to you in one way or another, won't they?

Parker gets his doggy massage on whenever possible these days.  It leaves him feeling sooooo good!

  1. My Lylah is such a big part of my life, but my family thinks I spoil her. I pay no attention to them. In fact, I get upset when they treat her like a dog.
