My dog is a star!

This photo I took of my dog Cricket in the pool with canine water therapist Cindy Horsfall of La Paw Spa has become Cindy's brochure cover shot and will be on her new website. I'm thrilled! Cricket, a black lab, is now 16, significantly older than most labrador retrievers live (13-14 is considered a ripe old age). I attribute her longevity in part to our bimonthly aquatherapy sessions with Cindy, who is the founder of the Association of Canine Water Therapy and has trained practicioners all around the US. We are fortunate to have her right here in the Pacific Northwest. She's terrific. Cricket loves her and loves getting massaged and stretched and swimming in the warm water pool just for dogs (and their people).

Wow...I had no idea that something like this even existed.

Rosie,

I'm in Vancouver, BC, too, and have a dog with spinal and related neurological problems. I see that Cindy of La Paw Spa treats at several cities - but all in Washington State. Where do you take your dog, and how long does it take to get there and back?

You can email me at: mjblauvelt @ yahoo . com if you do so by 1/31/2008 - but take the spaces out of that email address. I put them in to keep it from robot email address harvesters. It's not an address I use often, but I'll check every few days until the end of January.

Thanks

Margaret
