Emotional Rollercoaster.

We went to Kimberley BC for an Agility Trial this weekend. The plan was for my mom to stay here with Jane and I would take G & K. With Jane being sick, we took her and my mom was there to be her nanny :)

Jane got worse as the weekend went, she enjoyed herself and the pampering she got, she even had enough energy to displace her aggression at a dog coming to her face - after being given the teeth & ears back - not once but twice. Cindy's leg was the displacement object, I still feel awful, I guess it's true when they are pain they act out more, and well, she did. By Sunday evening her heart rate had risen to 200 bpm and her resp. rate was 70 per minute by Sunday evening NOT GOOD- I had never heard the "coughing" I was warned about, until that morning - I knew it was getting worse. Her temp was low when I checked too. Sunday evening we had already been to the Vet and back before I had even finished unpacking. She was given Lasix to get rid of the fluid build up in her lungs - which happened in only 24 hours. Both of my Vets have said how fast CHF (Congestive Heart Failure) can happen, and that it has ups and downs. She is now on the diuretic twice a day and the heart med she was given last week. :) It's hard knowing the change happened so fast, and she isn't the dog she was even a few weeks ago. All I know is I will cherish every moment with her. My emotions are everywhere right now, and honestly I just break out in random crying sometimes. I hope things settle down soon as I don't know how much more I can take.

We did go there for Agility, so I guess I should talk about that ..... Gyp and Kaleb had an amazing weekend - but it just doesn't seem all that important in the scheme of things when I am dealing with something pretty serious.

But I will give them the credit they deserve since they worked so hard as always :)

Kaleb earned his Gold Standard (ExSt Gold) - 50 Masters Standards ... a pretty big deal for my boy. He also Qd in Steeplechase, Jumpers, Snooker and Gamblers ... only a few more until the BIG Gold :) So proud of my boy.

Gyp was great too - and my goals were achieved, push the limits on her independence of obstacles and see how far ahead I can get of her and still set the lines. I was so thrilled that we had a few chances to really test this. She brought home 6 Qs. 2 Standards (1st and second fastest times), 2 Jumpers (1st and second fastest times), Snooker and Gamblers with 114 points.

I made them each a video montage from the weekend ... enjoy :)

so sorry you are going through this with Jane Sarah...
my collie, before Tate, went into heart failure at the age of 10.5, he was ok one minute, then I heard a cough one night & that was that....
I went through the whole thing, lasix, heart meds, so I feel for you...
if I can help in anyway, just ask

To be a noble lenient being is to have a kind of openness to the in the seventh heaven, an ability to trust aleatory things beyond your own manage, that can front you to be shattered in hugely exceptionally circumstances as which you were not to blame. That says something uncommonly outstanding with the fettle of the righteous life: that it is based on a corporation in the fitful and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a spy than like a jewel, something kind of tenuous, but whose mere particular handsomeness is inseparable from that fragility.

Advice in old age is foolish; for what can be more absurd than to increase our provisions for the road the nearer we approach to our journey's end.
