The energies were more up and down, a mix of happy going and feeling a tad tired. Perhaps he had some activities since yesterday and was feeling a bit tired or at least his body needed to recuperate.
The first impression I had is that he was "hanging" around today. I also sensed that within the last few days, he has more of a routine during the day?
I had a strong smell of fish at some point during the healing....I have no idea of what it means! Could it be that he is taking some fish supplements for his joints? Or eating fish?
Patrick showed me that he is petted by people all the time and he really enjoys all the attention.
Had the impression of a new energy too on his ward, new dog coming in? New staff? New vet?
Patrick showed me another dog, kind of fawn/caramel in colour, the picture came so fast that I couldn't make the breed of the dog. The feeling coming from this was that Patrick may have had a "friend" in the past, or a dog he saw on several occasions. No idea it is is at the hospital or when he was a young pup. I didn't get the impression that he has a friend at the hospital. I am not sure if he is interested in other dogs at the moment. This could change obviously:-)
He showed me a picture of him running and wanted to play with a ball and run after it, but he expressed his disappointment that he cannot run yet. I don't know if he has attempted to run a tiny bit already? Tug of war is a game he seems to love. I told him that he will be able to run and play tug of war when his body will be stronger.
I won't attempt any active communication about his past yet as I would like his physical body to be a tad stronger before attempting anything which frankly will be upsetting for him. However I am happy to ask him questions about him now and his feelings. Could you give me a list of questions you would like to ask him?
Tonight we worked on his whole body, from head to toes, : urogenital, endocrine, lympathic, nervous, digestive, respiratory and cardiovascular systems, superficial and deep muscles, skeleton, skin and sores. We also worked on his emotional being and released some of the stress from the last few weeks.
His back feels a tiny bit better, but the pelvis is still a bit stiff and his back legs do not feel not supple as they could be.
As usual, he soaked up on the healing like a little sponge.
I finished the session by telling him about all the people who care about him, and of the love pouring his way.
