Welcome to my blog....This is where I will be posting about all the things that go on in my doggy world, The World Of Lil Ole' Me "Casper Bear" @ Home. I will be sharing photos, information and anything else I find fun and interesting. Remember, I am a DOG!! Take a look at all my pages - links in the sidebar. If you like my doggy blog, please leave a comment or become a follower.
Hi there all you guys! Thank you all for visiting my blog while I have been out of sorts. I am back on track again now, doing ok again with my walking. I am back in hydrotherapy twice a week again now to help build up my muscles and help get me stronger. I will be staying at twice and sometimes maybe even three times a week at least until after my hip replacement which will be in about 10 months time.
Here I am again swimming like a fish in Hydrotherapy on Saturday.
Mum has also been doing ACUPRESSURE on me to help with pain on bad days, it's greeeeaaat and has been a great help to me. I will be adding a page on Acupressure in case any of you want to give it a try. It's great for Hip Dysplasia/Arthritis and many more conditions. It is extremely safe, but should not be used on any pets with cancer or for wounds and infections. Watch out for my page in a few days, it will explain more.
I'm off to hydrotherapy again in the morning wheeeee!
Mum has also bought me Wheat Bags to warm my hips and joints. Before I go for my walks though best of all I like it when she puts the hairdryer on me and massages my back and hips to get the blood circulating properly through the muscles. This helps me to walk better so I can walk further now, which is great.
Well thanks again to all of you that have visited my blog and left all your lovely comments and well wishes, they mean sooooo much to me.
I haven't done much blogging the last few days as I have been unwell. I had a very bad tummy and a bit of a relapse with my hips. I have been having pain and difficulty walking since Saturday. Mum has been giving me painkillers but I am feeling a bit miserable at the moment as things seemed to be improving. I have a hydrotherapy session tomorrow but Mum's not sure I'll be able to go yet!
Me feeling sorry for myself
Am feeling a bit better today and mum says I'm walking slightly better but still not good. Oh well, it could be worse I suppose, look on the bright side yer!
Here's little ole' me having my ninth hydrotherapy session. I'm doing ten minutes a session now, with breaks of course.
My therapist gives me great toys to play with in the pool and I have great fun. I free swim now in the pool with regular breaks where I sit and rest on the platform. I can't wait to get back in!
Look at me go! I'm thinking of training for the Olympics hee hee!
My sessions have been dropped down to one every five days now and then will be once a week.
I wish I could go every day. I love it!!
Me having my shower after hydrotherapy. I am soooooo clean!
My muscles are so much stonger now that my therapist thinks I will not need hydrotherapy for too much longer. I am glad that my muscles are getting stronger as this may push the hip into place as I grow, but I will miss my hydrotherapy sessions. They're FUN!!
Mum says, "That will never happen with you Casper! You can't stay quiet for five minutes!"
Cheeky Mum! I guess she's right though, I couldn't even do a wordless post. I guess I'm just a chatterbox. Mum is ill in bed, so thank goodness she taught me how to use this computer hee hee! I'm off now surfing the web while Mum's in bed! While the cats away as they say!

Me and Mum also like the idea of lighting a candle, which we will be doing and thinking also of our own "Jinny", "Jodie" and "Jasper" who are now gone from our lives here on Earth but will always be loved and never be forgotten.
