Our dear Lab Lucy has been receiving Katie’s loving massage services for the last two months and has benefitted greatly. “LuLu”, as we call her, is 12 years old, diabetic and blind, but she is a very loyal, happy and active dog -- retrieving our newspaper in the morning and waiting at the door in the evening with Ma’s slippers in her mouth. In late December, Lucy ran into a hard bench, injuring her shoulder and compressing spinal vertebrae, resulting in such intense pain and misery that we thought we would have to put her down. I am happy to say that a combination of weeks of activity restriction and medication has brought Lucy back to the happy dog she was before the accident. But Lucy would say that the magic ingredient in her recovery has been Katie’s wonderful, healing massage! She would also say that massage for loyal senior dogs like her should be mandatory – AARRFF!
