Monty’s suggestion? Follow with seated side bends with your best friend.
Come to Easy Pose. Place your dog in your lap. Place right-hand on floor at your side-left arm reaches up and over. Several deep breaths. Come to center place left hand on floor at your side-right hand reaches up and over. Several deep breaths.
Carefully flip your legs switching top leg without dislodging your best friend. Repeat on each side.
Monty finds doing yoga with his best friend is much more beneficial than practicing alone.
When I had my Addisonian Crisis in late 2013 it was after years of being a sickly dog. I was skinny, nervous, my coat was thin, my muscles were weak, I had a bad appetite and I often had no energy. My mom thought it was just because I was found as a stray about 5 weeks old and I just was never going to be healthy. The vets couldn’t ever find anything specific. Addison’s Disease is a great pretender of lots of other ailments.
Well after over 2 years of monthly injections I can tell you I am a different dog. I am chunky with good muscle tone, my coat is thick, my appetite and energy are overwhelming. Hey, she never had to brush me because I had no fur before diagnosis and medication, so now I fight her when I see the brush or fur rake come out!
Here I am helping Lexi today accessing my records. No mom does not make me wear a purple leash, at least I don’t think it’s purple but I am color blind they say.
The shot? It just hurts a little. The staff at my vets’ office really spoils me with the treats so I don’t mind.
The alternative? A final crisis and my mom would miss me too much so we don’t even mess with my shot schedule.
Here I am thanking mom for my monthly shot and for a trip to the pet store.
My prognosis? A long, happy and healthy life so long as I get my shot every 28 days!
Remember guys if you have a chronic condition be kind to yourself and take care.
Hi my name is Monty and I am a guest blogger here on sanseilife.
Thank you for your support and reading my dog Haiku!
We had a blizzard yesterday here in Arvada, Colorado. I am sure it was a blizzard because Mom came home early from work. Roscoe and I helped her make a batch of home made dog food, yum! We loved having the extra time with her.
Here are the pictures of Mom’s parking lot at work and the street in front of her building. This weather prompted her boss to let her come home early.
Here is a picture of one of our cars and our yard. A true winter wonderland.
Mom is one of the few people who loves a good snow storm so us dogs are lucky to live with her. Here is my Haiku:
I am alone in this Jeep and one of the things I do to amuse myself is write Haiku.
The winter solstice is known as the shortest and darkest day of the year. A time when I could dwell on the long nights but I prefer to think of it as a beginning. Each following day is longer than the previous. Here is today’s Haiku:
