These two precious English Bulldogs received a massage gift certificate for the holidays from their pet sitter. One day, instead of their usual walk, they received their massages. They were receptive and happy for the hands-on attention.
The older girl, Bentley, had some tightness and soreness but was in good shape for her age. She loosened up during the massage. She also fell asleep and snored loudly. It is a great sound!
Coco was a nut and wiggle worm during the massage but still let me work with her muscles. She didn't want me to go past the middle of her back due to previous surgeries, which isn't uncommon. When she was standing, though, she would let me work on her upper hips and gluteals. She loved me working on her front legs and shoulders. It was so cute! She was totally fascinated when I worked on her front paws.
Daddy sent the below photo to his sitter after I left. He said "post massage relaxation. I'm jealous."
