So we didn't make it to the Atlantic Ocean this summer to see the whales, but we did swim in Lake Superior - the most wild and ocean-like of the Great Lakes.
Lake Superior has its own lore - mysterious tales of ships disappearing in the night, etc. Now, I don't know about all that, but I can tell you that Lake Superior waters work wonders on arthritis. I don't like to admit it, but I do suffer some age-related pain and stiffness in my back legs. I don't run (don't tell Bunny) and some days I don't even walk very far. But from the moment I put my paws in Lake Superior I was a new dog - running and playing like a puppy.
My 13 year old legs felt great for days after my dip in Lake Superior. In fact, I am thinking we should bottle this stuff and make a million dollars, what do you think?
In other news, Sweet Pea had his second follow up visit this past Saturday. Although he seems to be feeling MUCH BETTER and is eating VERY WELL, the vet is still concerned about some inflammation in his mouth and the possibility of cancer ...we will have biopsy results in a few days. The good news is that he has actually GAINED WEIGHT!
