The K-man checked out OK - not great, but not broken by any means. He's not getting old. He IS old. Veronica said this was the first time she's ever seen him looking like an old dog, and I have to agree. His overall condition is good, but he was really sensitive to adjustments, especially on his front end and jaw, where I have been concerned - not pain responses, but he was more uncomfortable/fidgety with that than anywhere else on his body. She couldn't pin point anything specific, but we could see he wasn't comfortable. He's due for his senior work-up in March so hopefully all checks out there is nothing bad going on.
Gyp was her usual bendy self. Veronica commented on her muscled lean condition - all 25 pounds of it. She worked on her main issue - her lower back/lumbar area. Psoas palpation and test was ok, which is good news. Her flexion good, and her left extension as usual was less than her right. I won't go into great detail, but I was given a few more options/exercises for treatment for dealing with her lower back and to keep her flexible in her hind end. She checked out her freaky flexible abducting shoulders - esp. right and all was good too. It's all about maintenance and watching with Gyp, knowing her physical limits so I can keep her strong and fit, and recognizing when she's had too much - and knowing how to treat it. I left happy and so did Gyp :)
And what? who's that? It's TANGO!!! My favourite little cuban refugee :) She's here for a couple of weeks and on her second night - she had already went on her first date to an Oscar Party that Pleat was hosting. He was a great host and a total party animal .... he showed us all that apparently it's OK to steal Fajitas off of people's plates, get on the coffee table with all fours and lick the plates afterwards.
