Spa Therapy

Hey Dawgs - how's it hangin' with you? Do you remember me tellin' you last Monday that the weekend had been hard on me and I ended up with a limber tail? Doggone! I was hurtin' and the only way I was goin' to get thru the week was to be in a drug induced haze. OK, so baby aspirin might not be the hottest drug on the street but still, I was in pain and I needed my fix every twelve hours to help me get by.

The followin' picture shows my broken wag:

My tail is usually my crownin' glory and some have even said it has a life of it's own, so this was embarassin' to say the least. I did manage
to struggle through the week but when Saturday came,
I decided it was time to pamper myself a bit and
take a good, long, hot soak in the bathtub.

Ahhhh, I could get used to this kinda treatment!!!
Between your prayers and a good hot soak,
my tail is back and it's flyin' high again.

I got to feelin' real good and I was so bustin' with energy that my PUs decided a day at the Canine Spa would help and we wouldn't have to worry about the water bein' too cold. So we loaded up the truck and we moved to Beverleee ~ Hills, that is; swimmin' pools, movie stars...

Ooops, got off on a whole 'nother tangent there. Anywhoooo, I had the whole place to my ownself and I jumped and splished and splashed like a wild dawg.

Then I met a new friend and I wouldn't let him outta my sight, or my grip.
Meet Louie, Louie Lobster. Louie just hangs out at the Spa
all the time waitin' for somedawgy like me to come along and
take  him swimmin'.

I obliged Louie's wishes time and time again.

Louie is a crusty old dude but I still wanted to take him home with me.
That's when Mom gave me a stern talkin' to and told me that
Louie had to stay there to welcome the other Spa guests.

I let her have her way. This time. 

Oh well, I guess Louie might like it better at the Spa anyway
and I can't say that I blame him. I'd stay there too if I could.

Monday has rolled back into the picture once again and
I'm sure we'd all rather be havin' fun in a cement pond.
Maybe some day soon I'll hit some bubblin' crude when huntin' and
when I do, you dawgs are gonna be the first ones invited
to my Beverly Hills mansion!
And yeah, Louie will greet you at the gate.

Until then, have a great week!
Chester ;0=)

Pee. Ess. - My GrandPU's knee is healin' up just fine but we are still helpin' him and GramPU out a lot. Not to sound like a broken record (whatever that is) but our blog visitations leave much to be desired. We hate not seein' what you're all up to and we plan on stoppin' by as soon as we can.

That pool looks awesome! I would much rather have been swimming in that than in mine this weekend!

Sitka had spa therapy for almost 2 years, b/c of his knee replacements. He loved it.

I have an urgent prayer request at arise to write.

You sure know how to have a good time! I hope your grandpa is feeling better really soon!

The fam and I are all glad to see that fine tail of your back in business, Chester. It was soooo nice of Mom and Dad to take to to the spa for a nice warm water swim. Try to remember that little kindness, ok?

YEAH Big Brownie! I was sure hoping your tail would be back swinging this weekend! Looks like you are 100% back in action my friend and that is the best news I could have this Monday!

Samantha said...

So glad to hear (and SEE!) that your tail is bettah! Love that spa and lobster! Have never found a spa like that out here - wish there were one just like it to splish around in! Cool! And you look very happy there - guess the water wasn't too cold this time, eh???!!!
Hugs xoxo

Glad you tail is back in full wagging action.

Woo - glad you got your wag back.

Mango said...

What a relief. Your tail looks mighty sorry in that first photo. The cement pond next door just opened up. I have no doubt PeeWee will be frequenting it.

It's great to see the flag flying at full mast again Chester! You know, we have a lot of Louies up here in New England - rumor has it there are enough of them for every dog to take one home. :p
