    WinkRuby & the physio, what an escapade.

    Let me preface this by saying that Ruby is a typical, over-zealous, wonderfully friendly, funny little lady.

    She had her first physiotherapy appointment on Saturday.

    It looked to me as though her physiotherapist, Laurie was having a bad day, though we were her first appointment at 7:30. Ruby is a morning person.

    After 15 minutes of water therapy, Laurie decided it was massage time. So she started emptying the pool and thought to towel Ruby off.

    I don't know how you guys towel off your dogs, but I get mine all hyper excited and they always end up between my legs, and doing the 'willies shake' like when you scratch them in just the right place.

    Poor Laurie.

    Ruby tried her very best to lighten her mood, so much so that she broke out into a butt tuck around the pool. As Laurie so staunchly tried to remain serious, her 'Ruby come here right now' only made matters worse.

    When she finally caught up with Roo, it was just as she was jumping back into the pool.

    I was on the other side of the glass dying of laughter. I could just see what Ruby was thinking.

    Then onto massage. Ruby tends to lose her mind when strangers give her the time of day. Her little tail was going a mile a minute, she was dancing to some tune I'd never heard, doing her little piggy noises and air kisses.

    I could tell that this was infuriating Laurie. But I couldn't help but laugh at them both. Laurie trying to stay straight faced and professional, and Ruby doing all she could to lighten the mood.

    Somehow, they both made it through and we have an appointment for next Saturday again. I asked for someone with a bit more of a sense of humor. And I made a note to bring my camera along.

    Yes, Lexi gets toweled off when we've been out in the rain. Yes, she gets all hyped up, wiggling around, going between my legs, making all sorts of growly noises. Most often I am drying her rump & she is rubbing her face on the back of my leg!!!!

    My pretty girl, Lexi!

    What a great description of the event -- I can totally picture it and can't help myself from laughing! I'm a little surprised, though, that the therapist was so unamused. I would think that if you work with dogs in any capacity, you would / should know the antics that can ensue. Maybe you are right and she was just having an off-day, but even so, how can one be so uptight when working with dogs, especially labs!
