Rio had her first swim therapy this morning. It went great. The therapists were really amazed at how well Rio took to the hydrotherapy pool. They kept saying how impressed they were that she did this well on her first session. I wasn’t surprised, because she is a very smart and adaptive dog. I think she was just relieved that nobody was trying to stick her with needles, so she just went with it. They had an orange and blue Chuck-it ball — her favorite — and she swam to get it and played with it for about 20 minutes of the half hour session. The ladies massaged her and stretched her and guided her around as she swam, and aside from being a bit nervous and resistant when they were backing her into the pool, she seemed to enjoy it. So we signed her up for another session next week.
And now she’s completely shot and snoozing on the couch with her sisters.
