Emerson’s Testimonial…and My Gratitude

One afternoon Emerson ran up the stairs two steps at a time, and jumped up on the bed for his nightly treatment with at least a 3 inch clearance. Hmmmmmmm!

Yesterday, we had twelve inches of snowfall. Emerson loves to play in the snow. Even more than that, Emerson loves to romp in the snow with his doggy buddies in the woods. We had not been to his dog-friendly park for six months. It was to be the ultimate test. To be off the leash, playing in the snow with the other dogs…would he be limping later?

I think you know where this is going… He played with gusto, “gazelle-ing” over logs and rollicking with newly found canine friends. I watched him carefully…

He was walking fine…no limping.

We returned to the same woods today for more of the same fun.

He is walking fine…no limping. Thank you Jin Shin Jyutsu for helping my best friend move through life with ease!

This is Emerson’s testimonial.

What did Mary say? (paraphrased) The only mistake you can make is to not use it (JSJ)!

Thank you to all my teachers (Jed, Anita, Sara, Iole, Ian, Jill, Susan, Lynne, Wayne, Don and Bobi) who taught, supported and empowered me to help my friend.

A very special thanks to Adele Leas, for her teaching, her frequent email suggestions and her guidance in my caring for Emerson, and my other animal friends…

Thank you, Mary, for all this possibility beyond my dreams.

And thank you to all my animal friends who teach em and remind me to Be and Listen…every time, over and over.
