Thanks!  I was doing it from my laptop--so not sure why some worked, and others did not.  Thanks so much for the support.

So, we are just back from our first rehab appt, and it went SOOOO well!  I am so glad that I did it.  She was a great therapist, who evaluated Arthur for about 20 minutes, building trust, and getting a sense of his temperament.  Then, we actually got him into the treadmill tank.  ARTHUR hates the water!  But he did it!!  He hopped a long as the water was raised, and walked a solid 8 minutes with 18 inches of water.  I couldn't believe it! He wasn't too stressed out, and responded well to treats and encouragement while he was on it.

She also talked with me about different exercises and things to do with him at home, and we even started talking about diet options, to try and get some weight off of him.  

So, I bought a package for 6 more visits, and am tickled with the progress he made today.

Thanks everyone!

Kai
