This afternoon, I took Emma to see Dr. Tran, her holistic veterinarian, for an acupuncture treatment. When the dogs ride in the Jeep, I fold the seats flat and pad the floor with cushy blankets. It makes for a very comfortable trip, and Emma seemed to enjoy herself.
(That's a freeze-dried liver treat on the blanket in front of Emma.)
Emma got a lot of extra needles today. It's really weird that she doesn't flinch at all as the needles go in. After Dr. Tran is finished, Emma looks a little bit like a pin cushion.
Once the needles are placed, I sit with Emma and she rests on a cushy dog bed and relaxes for 10 to 15 minutes.
Both of us deserved treats on the way home, so we ran through the drive-through at McDonalds. Emma got a plain hamburger ... I broke it into little pieces and she ate every crumb! I had a Mocha Frappe (yum!)
