Canine Rehab Client Nell
  Nell is in our Canine Rehabilitation Program to help her recover from surgery.

Dear Matt,

I thought you'd like to know how I am doing since my last physical therapy session with you. So far, so good. Dr Schwabe thinks I am doing well which is good news. I still have limpy moments from time to time but getting stronger.

Mom and Dad walk me and my sister, Lexi, at Nockamixon lake which gives me a good workout on the hilly areas. Although Lexi charges ahead I prefer to sniff every blade of grass along the way,which slows my pace down a bit. Then, I charge ahead and try to catch up but... then there's more grass to sniff! Mom and Dad make sure I don't dilly-dally too much so I get a decent workout. They know when I start huffing and puffing that I've just about had enough. Depending on my mood, I sometimes pant a bit when I still have a little spark left in me; I kind of bluff them out. No worries, I'm going up and down the stairs and get on and off the sofa without assistance. Food still motivates me, so when Mom wants me to work a little harder, she bribes me. I go along with it just to make her feel better.

I want to say thank you for taking such good care of me after my surgery. Your gentle manner made me feel safe. I never knew I could swim until you plopped me in the tank! What a surprise that was!

My family and I are grateful for your guidance and service through my recovery.

Be seeing you!
Nell and Knoedler family
