Driving in England is a nightmare, it took ages to get to Cambridge with all the tractors on the road. I was late for my appointment but it was OK as he works from home so doesn't mind. I was in there for and hour and a half, no needles but a lot of neurological integration (http://www.neurolinkglobal.com/default.aspx
) and some gentle manipulation. I'm now very tired but feeling an awful lot better. It is the strangest process, lots of questions but nothing is deduced logically, it is all done by testing the body for its response.
I really ought to get on with my clearing out and suchlike this evening even though I feel too tired. Maybe just a little bit so I can tell myself I've done something. I have been playing with Leon and doing his training, he is so funny, he loves all the attention - and the treats. He has got very much better behaved and his recall is quite respectable now, it is lovely to be able to take him out without worrying he'll be naughty.
Barrie, lucky your brother was sensible enough to get treatment, hope he isn't going to have to have surgery. Seems like your other brother has sorted himself out too, was your mother quite a strong woman? Well done getting the fabric cut out, that's a tricky job in itself.
Dawn, our Cassie was terrified of fireworks, it is a nightmare for them and you, hope Bear gets over it quickly. Some behaviourists say that barking should be totally ignored and good behaviour praised highly. So perhaps if you have something positive you want her to do instead, like sitting down beside you, or walking with her head against your leg, something you can praise her for doing instead of the unwanted barking.
Andee, sleep well, I might be having an early night too.
Waves to Pam and Fiona and anyone else passing through.
