Piggy started hydrotherapy at Water 4 Dogs! This Sunday was his second visit! He loves swimming now, and he took to the water this time swimming right away! He swam proudly for his mommy, with a look on his face saying “Look at me, mommy! I’m SWIMMING!” 😀 By the end of the session, he was swimming the length of the pool on his own! Click below for the videos of him swimming! 2016-04-10 13.00.25 2016-04-10 13.18.28 2016-04-10 13.29.01

Yesterday we had a group of kids visiting our Galapagos clinic. Thanks to Michelle, who wrote a brand new education program, it was a very successful morning! The kids learned how to be a responsible owner, why to sterilize their pet and how often to deparasite. And of course they got some goodies 😉
Super fans Rebecca Raphael Melissa and Andrade de Paula in Brazil made a Piggy costume for their dog to become a superhero too! But, here’s a little secret: all of you already are heroes! 😉 They even made a leg wrap to signify the three legged-ness! 🙂 You guys are amazing!
