Pawgress anyway. Does the font size change per heading or paragraph the number listed such as 11 does the number change with 
heading 1? I do not have the numbers just the paragraph , or heading with numbers etc. 

heading 1 etc

Hoping someone else has the exact same thing as you do so we can figure it out! 

It might have to do with those tiny mice Admin talks about and I don't know those tiny mice;)

Would a bed help him in the truck ? Just a thought, but would he lay down and just enjoy the ride? I would think that would help not bounce around so much. Don’t know either thinking outloud.

Oh here we go again, I’m in the grey mass…. 

yes, we did put a bed back there for him and sometimes he uses it. But he is so used to standing… his previous owner couldn’t even get him to settle down for them and they were surprised that he doesn’t whimper al the time! I guess we’ve made some progress with him!

Sally i don’t mind you guys playing around with this forum, I’m actually learning a lot! My iPad does have a paragraph setting which allows me to change sizes! Whoa 😮 this Is BIG!

You just gave me an Ah Ha! Moment! Very cool!🤓 what a difference knowledge makes! 😁😜

So on the top left hand side of my tool bar, I have the option of paragraph/heading etc & font (pt) size.

I can switch back and forth. Sally has an android tablet, so I think hers is a little different?

Thanks for the lessons here this morning ladies! Have a pawtastic day! 💁🏻😘❤️

Hi guys… I will try this again… I had it all typed out just lovely like and then lost it when I went to copy Jerry’s quote! Sigh… 😔!

i had an excellent day with excellent results for my fur boys Spitfire Spike and Super Stewie! 

After our VERY reassuring and positive vet visit with Spikey, we took Stewie for his  Very first acupuncture session! We took him to Leslie at Nu Beginnings. She is a practitioner in Chinese medicine and acupuncture. (For humans) She also practices Ortho-Bionomy. “Ortho-Bionomy is a gentle, non-invasive, system of healing that reminds the body of its natural ability to restore balance. Its principles are based on a simple and profound philosophy: allow the body to correct itself. The hallmark of Ortho-Bionomy is pain relief.”

Leslie fell in love with Stewie right away and got right down in the floor with us and asked all the right questions. She then checked his body alingnment and worked on his neck area and his hips. I knew he was enjoying it, ‘cause every now and then he would turn around and give her a big sloppy kiss! 👅!!! Then she used laser acupuncture on his amp area, where he licks the most still and also on his kidneys. Stewie has quite a bit of flaking coming from the top of his amp site, the hair is slower growing back there too, and she said that due to the chemo, his kidneys are having a hard time keeping up, so with the help of acupuncture she can help his kidneys and his immune system as a whole! The session was about 25 minutes long and Stewie enjoyed every minute of it! He even got a treat from Leslie afterwards! 

Leslie would like to see Stewie in two weeks after his blood work and again the following week after his (FINALclap!) Chemo session. We will follow up with a couple of weekly sessions and then go to monthly/by-monthly. 

The unfortunate thing, is that Leslie is not ‘qualified’ to practice her medicine on animals, but she has worked on people’s fur babies for years! (I have seen her in the past and she was amazing for me back then!) The incredible thing about her, is that because she isn’t ‘qualified’, she can’t charge people for her services, so she asks that people make a donation to the local animal protection society, P.A.L.S.!!!

On the way home, he was so relaxed, he LAY ON HIS BED THE WHOLE WAY HOME!!!! Spitfire Spike was cuddled up and all was CALM AND CONTENT!!!

Jerry  said
Petra, I wouldn’t think there’s a need to limit those road trips, it is good exercise for him and he’s having fun too. I’m sure it also feeds his soul and that’s SO important for fighting cancer. I’d say that after his trips, try to let him have extra R&R at home so he’s ready for the next one.

This makes me feel so much better about taking him in his Road Trips! He does So very much love being with us and meeting new people! Thank you for this reassurance!

So all in all we have a Family I That is as fit as can be and we are truly grateful for that! I am also truly grateful for a community that I can call my friends! You are all truly very special people. Our fur babies chose the right Hoomans to call their Saviours!!!

Stewie is STILL sleeping 💤!!! He hasn’t been this relaxed since after his surgical recovery! Both he and Spike enjoyed a pile of fresh cooked chicken for supper and they both seem to be very content with life! Truly Grateful!aw-shucks

Spitfire Spike and Super Stu say thanks for helping our pawrents get through a tough day. Tomorrow brings enough challenges, but I am going to put myself in puppy shoes and not worry about it until then! winker

Luv to Everyone!heart

I’m sooooo glad to hear how well Stewie’s session went.   I’m very open to all this “stuff”!  Stu is proof that he’s ooen tonit too…and clearly likes it!! 🙂 🙂 🙂    And it’s lovely that the Practitioner donates her “fee”(her non fee fee!) to PALS

Ditto Sally

That is really neat she saw Stewie & she donates to Pals!
I am glad to hear Stewie loved his session and Leslie loved Stewie I’m not surprised on either. 😍

I do think you will see a big difference in Stewie. I see a huge difference in our guys! We did weekly then every 2 weeks every 3 etc we are now at every 2 to 3 months.

Would she be willing to do home visits for Spitfire Spike? Spike would enjoy the laser acupuncture that would help with his achey bones. I know everything had a dreaded cost, just throwing it out there if the money tree decides to grow.

The other thing for Spitfire Spike again it’s not cheap but you would need no medication and no vet visits, all that into consideration  might not be as bad when you figure it all out, it shows great results in cats with arthritis is the Assisi loop. You can do that at home Dr Laurie would have to write a script. You could use it on Sptifire Spike & Stewie.  Add that to your research winker

Glad to hear Stewie & Spitfire Spike celebrated with a some chicken I hope you guys celebrated too!
I know you all had to sleep better last night 😉

Awww what a fantastic, happy and hopeful update Petra, this is such great news. I haven’t heard of Ortho-Bionomy before but it’s super intriguing, thanks for bringing it to our attention. It sounds like that, along with the acupuncture, really, really helped. YAY!!! 

Sounds like Ortho-Bionomy is a form of Reike / hands on bodywork? Here’s a video for anyone interested:
