new adventures – playing with needles

my older sister, jane, has been stuggling with a bad back and sore neck for sometime.  there are days where she just can’t get comfortable and seems so sad.  So, our vet recommended she get some acupuncture.  well…when charon called to talk to Dr. Mili Bass about getting some treatment – of course my name came up (who can fault them…i am a delightful topic of conversation) and she recommended I give it a shot as well.  we went on tuesday for our first treatment – i was apprehensive, but of course brave as usual.  Dr. Bass thinks this will help me with the delayed GI problems from the chemo, and will help boost my immunity. 

i really felt pretty good after the appointment, and my sister jane was just feeling wonderful – moving about much better and really getting some good comfy naps in (i was jealous!).  so this morning, when i heard we were going to see Dr. Bass again, i was pretty excited.  Since jane is oldest she usually goes first.  Here she is resting during her treatment today.

Then it was my turn.  i can’t tell you all the places there were needles…but really…some were unmentionable!!  Here i am with my ‘johnny rotten’ look.

We have to wait another week before we see Dr. Bass again, but it’s a pretty great experience, once you get past the idea of all the needles.  I give it three paws up!!!  now i need to work on a good power nap, so i can catch up with jane…
