I cannot believe that Káva is already 7½ but she has some arthritis in her back and I see her stiffening up after lying down or sitting too long. I would like to try to learn how to properly massage her. Does anyone have any links to information on that? YouTube videos, etc.? As I am disabled and know how a good massage can help ease pain and loosen things up, I can only assume that it is the same for dogs. :)

It IS the same for dogs. The rehab specialist at the clinic where we do water treadmill for fitness does a lot of massage therapy in her senior and arthritic dogs. Do you have a rehab clinic near you? They could probably show you what would work best for Kava, and then you could very likely do it yourself.
