Thursday's Stretch




Day 16  - The Big Stretch


 
Let me show you how to do it, Thunder.  Gearing up with the back haunch.  The tail helps too.





Get those front paws moving first.





And then those back legs too - yes, I do have two back legs.  My tongue is anticipating a yummy treat that surely you are going to give me, Mom.




 My turn - as you can see, I don't need my tail to get those paws going.




That felt so good - I think my form is much better than Lightning's.  How about two treats for me?



Woos, Thunder and Lightning

I've been doing Upward Dog in yoga for so many years but I have to admit that you guys did the most perfect Upward Dog. I think I should ask my yoga teacher to take some lessons from two of you (Ummm, may be just Thunder).
