Thank you for the wonderful article about Fitter Critters in Lee (Dec. 3.) My dog Blackie, a lab mix, has been through a lot in his 14 years. He had cancer and had a toe amputated. But thanks to his weekly swim and massage therapy at Fitter Critters, he is still going strong. He can jump up on the couch, go up and down the deck stairs, and run after a rabbit like he did when he was a pup!

Fitter Critters and especially his caring water therapist Alden Beane have added happy and healthy years to his life span. Thanks to Fitter Critters and Alden, I have more time to nestle on the couch with Blackie and enjoy our golden years together a little longer.
