Happy Solstice 2016!

(I had a particularly difficult time wrangling them this year.)

Belly band

Chimera outgrew his puppy belly band a long time ago. He still occasionally marks at Sherry's and at my parents' condo (where we're spending Christmas this year) so I finally made him a new one.

Good news from the chiropractor

Dr Wallace was pleased with Chimera's recovery! She didn't have to do any major adjustments this time. She could tell that I had been doing his new rehab exercises, because his movement was better in his shoulders and he let her extend his back legs more easily. He's still licking his front left foot intermittently and we're not sure why.

I'm to continue with his current set of rehab exercises:
  • Front foot pivot on pilates disc
  • Reaching up and forward with front legs (especially pulling something down from above with his front left leg)
  • Crossing front legs across his chest, and also stretching sideways out away from his body (they go farther than I'd realized!)
  • Back foot pivot on pilates disc
  • Lifting and stretching back legs out
