Jasmine Getting Acupunctured

"Who's got the bright idea that turning a dog into a pin cushion is a good pastime?" Jasmine asks. "Wait a minute, there are treats with that?" Sigh. "OK, bring it on, then."

Jasmine actually doesn't mind it much at all.

Well, unless the needle hits a sensitive spot.

She thinks that having her own visitor is kinda fun, in spite of the silly needles. Having to stay still is another story—BORING! But as long as there is a supply of treats, one can survive that also.

The upside is that the present combination of her diet, supplements, chiropractic care, underwater treadmill and the acupuncture seems to be working.

Not forgetting her stem cell treatments, of course, which did great things for Jasmine.

All her vets seem to agree on that. Jasmine is more full of herself than ever, and her body seems to be able to keep up with it just fine.

"Couldn't we just do the visitor and treats WITHOUT the needles?" Jasmine asks.

Well, no, honey, that's not how that works. Gotta put up with them needles, just like you have to put up with your tooth-brushing, baths and all those other fun things people do to you. It's because of all those things that you're feeling as good as you are.
