It is hehe he gets water in his ears so the float helps keep it out , he has got a sweet face he is the sweetest dog ever he wouldnt hurt a fly he loves my cats to bits and they love him its so cruel that he has ended up with this disease its horrible and i know i will have to make the decision when it gets too bad to end his life , he is in no pain his back legs just get crossed up which makes him wobbly and he gets confused as to why they are tangled but with hydrotherapy he hasn't been getting them crossed so much , he is at the end of the first stage of this disease going into the second so hopefully hydrotherapy will halt it a bit as im not letting him live into the final stage its just too horrible

That is so cute! Bless you for taking such good care of him and knowing what you'll have to do. I hope the hydro therapy continues to help.

Theres not many who would or could do this for their animals, so i think it's great

I'm pleased he's not in any pain and hope he stays pain free for a long time to come

What touching pictures! I'm so glad that hydrotherapy for dogs is catching on - it can help so much when regular exercise isn't possible.
