Hi Everyone,

Do you have a chubby, sluggish dog around the house? If so, you may be able to liven things up a bit after reading this article by Carol Solomon.

Hugs, Gary

I was kidding around with my 13-year old daughter, and started tapping on Molly, our 9-year-old Beagle.  As a puppy, Molly had been abused and neglected.  We adopted her when she was 6 years old after she had been in a shelter and lived with several families.  She was overweight, a total slug, and did not know how to play.  While tapping can be done surrogately with pets, I tried to tap on where the sore spot would be on her chest.

Even though I don't know how to play, I am a cool dog anyway…

Even though I just like to lie on the couch all day, we love you anyway…

My daughter, who refuses to let me tap on her, joined in. (I didn't even know she knew how to craft the statements!)

Even though you are a big fat beagle, we all love you.

Even though you sleep on the couch all day when you should go play and have fun, we all think you’re cute.

Even though no one taught you how to play, we all love and accept you anyway.

We just tapped around the face points on her with statements like these:

I sleep on the couch all day

I don’t know how to play

No one ever played with me

They just left me alone

Now I can have fun

It’s time to play and have fun

Molly immediately got a lot more playful - we couldn't believe the difference!  In fact, we couldn't keep her from playing for days afterwards - she was running all over the house.  Now, when she gets too frisky, my daughter still says “Mom, it’s your fault – you did that tapping with her! You’re going to have to “untap” her!

With love,

Carol Solomon, Ph.D. MCC
