Dog daycare and dog massage, I’ve heard of, but dog yoga? I guess it’s all the rage on the east coast, after being developed by Suzi Teitelman, who calls it doga. Teitelman, who is a human yoga instructor, noticed that her dog seemed interested in being close to her when she did her own yoga poses. From these humble beginnings, doga has grown to where classes are now offered in at least 100 locations domestically, as well as in Europe.
The most important things in my life, not necessarily in order, are my family, my health, my work, my dog, my friends and my yoga. Yes, yoga. It keeps me in touch with my body and mind, slows down the aging process, and is just plain good for you. I heartily recommend it to everyone.
You may have noticed that I didn’t include the cat in my list. I guess he’s OK, but I’m afraid I’m just not a cat person. Or maybe it’s this cat. I dunno, but we just don’t see eye to eye. Nevertheless, I feed him twice a day, let him in when he wants in, let him out when he wants out, make sure his water dish is full, worry about him when there are coyotes around, and enjoy the absence of mice in the basement. So it goes.
