“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.” Author unknown
The moment I first held Ella, my world changed. She has touched so many people giving love as a therapy dog but now it is time to give back. No matter how hard she tries to give, her eyes show sadness and pain.
Ella responds extremely well to acupuncture. Even though I know it does not benefit everyone, I am glad it does help her. Her neurologist actually does this for her but being there you can tell the difference. I have actually had acupuncture so I know how beneficial it can be. Of course now I do everything for her health! It starts out with them inserting the needles and then I stayed with her for maybe 10-20 minutes. I did not keep time but she began to slowly get more relaxed. It was funny seeing her try to hold her eyelids open and them begin to get heavy until finally she was out! When we were done she was wagging her tail and so happy. I just knew how much it helped her so it felt good to see some positive signs. Here are some pictures and a video from the visit.
