A Post by me, Archie( for a change) at the Chiroparctor

Hi everyone,Archie here. I thought I would write for a change as my sister HOGS it all the time and I wanted to tell you about my Chiropractor visit today. Now as you all remember a while back I was having problems with both my knees and then my back.( remember that is when I got the flat screen for my crate and learned the HBO words like Tanner?) And PL1+2 thought I was going to need surgery. And ever since then I haven't really been able to do stairs yet(well I can go down but not up....) Well today my Dr said I was the best I have been since I started and haven't slid backwards. so I thought I would show you my visit because I am so happy!!!! Now since I have started going here my knees have not popped out ONCE!!!!! My back acts up a little here and there( it could be due to the fact that my sister sneak attacks me and jumps on me all the time) but all I have to do is get a "tune up" and then I am OK. My Dr says I should never need surgery and once I am totally tuned up will only have to come in once in awhile!!!!!!!! here I am in the office waiting for my Dr to come in.......

Since I didn't see her I thought I would check up to make sure she had enough water for the weekend.........

Better check the little frig as well (and the cookies on top of it...)

This is the table I stand on and PL2 holds on to my collar and holds her hand out. Then Dr Anne checks my points (by pressing on PL2's hand) to see if any are weak( PL2 and I are a little sketchy on how this part works but it does so who cares we say....)

Now we had lots of pictures of this happening but I would show one to PL2 and she would say OH Archie you can't show that why I look awful, or Oh Archie it looks like I have 4 chins. or Oh Archie I look like I weigh 400 pounds there......GEESH so I only ended up with this one.....Normally PL2 would have her left hand up and Dr Anne( in the pink) would be pressing on it) BUT NO she wouldn't let me show that one( that was the one where her chin did look a bit exaggerated shall we say)

After I have my treatment I get EXHAUSTED and can barely keep my eyes open( PL2 says do not look at how dirty Aggie and I are as we are going to get groomed...WHAT??!! ...this week)

Agatha came over to tell me that maybe I should go to my bedroom and be more comfortable....

So I did............... Uhhhhh Aggie here...... Actually I told him to go to his bedroom because I didn't want him to see that there was a little, ahem, how shall I say, accident ...on his new bed...........

Oh geesh I hope he doesn't see PL1 and me trying to get the cover back on after we washed it.......

NOOOOOOOO it wasn't me who caused the accident..... PL2 spilled some soup on it . We were THRILLED to hear Arch got a good report today because he seems to have been in a holding pattern there for while....... And PL1+2 LOVE their chiropractor and are so happy Arch the lad is getting (slowly) better!!!! PL1 and I played a good game of Cuz while they were gone........ PS Opening day happened the next day..... and it didn't rain....and the flowers are coming out,the Sox are playing ball, Archie is getting better, Earthdog trials are soon to come and life is good.....

The snappy V-E-T made you all better!
Ha, ha, my momma wears her most worstest clothes to the V-E-T. Makes her look like a bag lady.


Lucia said...

Ciao dolci A+A!

Woo hoo Arch! It's so magnifico that you're getting all better! And I get that whole thing about being tuckeried out after being at the doctor. Every time I come home from my vettie, I take a long nap. Maintaining good health can be so exhausting...!

Tanti baci!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Archie...ANYTHING is a good excuse for a nap... but it was great to read that the chiropractor is helping (AND setting you up for a good snooze when you get home.)

Yappy weekend!
Jake and Fergi

tula monstah said...

Wooohoo Archie! You've gone through alot since I've known... diets, back problems, snowplow issues... then the rain out on opening day! and you still look good:)

With this cr#@$py weather, just stay in bed!


Sophie Brador said...

Even though I only got to see bits and pieces of your PLs, I would recognize them anywhere and sure hope they get to throw tennis balls in hotel lobbies for me again really soon.


Eric said...

Archie pal!! WooHOOOOOOooo!!! Fabadabadoozie!!!! Dog. I'm barking LOUD for your good news and doing my dancing trick. Can you see? Life IS WICKEDLY WAGGINGLY GOOD!!!!! What could be better- apart from a T Bone Steak for celebration supper with 2lbs of cheese for dessert? But I know the PL's will have done that for you. And maybe some soup to start with... if there was any left.

Sweet dreams of earthdog rosettes and winning teams Step and Twinnie.

Wags n kisses, Eric xxxxxx

Unknown said...

You have a chiro! PLs sure take care of you. I bet this cold weather isn't good for the ole joints. Can't wait for this cold rain to pass. You deserve a nice comfy nap.

Oh thanks- I got the call from Doc- I'll start next week- back up for rondo in case the ankle is still tender. Thanks arch for the hook up.

Stay warm... geez- When's the earth dog event?

Luna "The Scruffy Yacht Dog" said...

I go to one of those people that do that arm thing! She right on the money every time!
Glad that your on your way to getting better, summer will soon be here, and the walks you go on!!!
Your bed looks SOOOOO comfy, I would want to sleep in.

with wagging tail,

Archie mate
Great news about your knees & back. So glad the treatment is working. We're just wondering why PL2 chose a picture where her head is half missing hehe. We'd like a whole head photo next time lol.
Aggie, that was quick action to get Archies bed cleaned up.

Hope you all had a great Easter!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Aggie...did ya say PL2 peed on Archie's bed? I the heck could she have spilled soup on it...does she eat in it?? So were assumin' it was the other and she was too embarassed to tell us...(Lacie is busily scribbling for Tattler Mag....)

Frankly, I think you and Arch look FABBERS; no groomin' appears to be needed...


Oh, far as I know Klacie has had NO ACTUAL APPROVED DATES they were ALL ME, BABY!!

Get that Wheelie Sullivan of his soused behind and sober him up...he's the Best Man in Gilbert's weddin'...he might need a bath and shave or somethin'...and maybe some Librium???

Hi A & A! We're so glad to know the Archie is doing alright! Chiropractors seem like they help a lot! HAPPY EASTER!!! -Hec and Lola

Rudy said...

I've never been chiropract-ed but Mom has for a bad hip and it worked wonders for her. (she fell off a horse) I just go to a massage person and if the chiro-thingy feels as good as the massage, then chiropract-y must be great!!
Glad you're doing better!


Huskee and Hershey said...

FANTASTIC news about Archie!! Did the vet suggest glucosamine? Our mom and the vet were discussing 'special vitamins' for older dogs (ahem.. that's me) and she did mention that glucosamine may work for doggies with some joint problems.
