Dear Readers—Alya here.
In May, Mom discovered after a series of tests, that I had very low amounts of Vitamin B12. The recommendation from my internist (yes, they do have these specialties in the medical field for dogs), suggested a series of Vitamin B12 shots. Unfortunately, this particular vitamin is not absorbed well through the gut, so mom had to learn how to give me my weekly shot.
Every Sunday morning for the past eight weeks, I have been very patient while she prepares the shot. She then grabs the skin on the back of my neck and… it is over in a flash. I feel so much better now and have my pep and energy back.
Though we had to give up our regular visits at Maryville because of all the walking, I still get the opportunity to visit with the assisted-living residents at St. Anthony’s Village. I really enjoy my work with them when we gather for dog-ministry prayer group once a week.
Take care and blessings. I think I feel a nap coming on…
Alya, still a Four-Footed Minister
