It was the first trial of the year this past weekend. I had K entered in just 5 runs. He was great - ran with his usual Kaleb flair, kept me on my toes and kept me laughing. He brought home a Q in Masters Gamblers and Jumpers.
Gyp had fun hanging out and making friends. It was awesome that Dr. Devall came out to treat her, she had some Acupuncture done, Laser and some adjustments, and is now prescribed with some muscle relaxants to help break the cycle of her muscle tightness - she also has a couple new Chinese Herbs to to try with the others she is already on. She still has a long way to go with her recovery, but all I hope is that she recovers.
together we look back. together we move ahead. together we are stronger.
It was harder on me than her, not to be in the ring together this weekend. But my need for speed was fulfilled thanks for some great friends who were more than generous to let me run their great dogs! I ran Wicca in Challenge - an amazing run, 2 bars but a smokin' fast run. I ran Tempete, Jo Gauthier's wonderful Belgian and we Qd in Jumpers, I got a quick lesson in running a dog with French commands, and off I went! What a rush! I ran Jolayne's, Tag in Steeplechase, and he was even nice enough to stick his newly trained 20/20 for me on the A-frame! I ran BB the cutest little sheltie and we Qd her Jumpers run - I wish I had a video of that run!
Here's a video of some of the scrambling around running other people's dogs :)
I was thinking this might be my last Agility trial until after me Knee surgery - meaning I would be back by June if it was just the Menisci repair, which I was hoping would be in February, so Gyp and I could rehab together :) I called the Ortho Surgeon today, and it looks like the earliest will be March, which sucks as I was finally getting my self psyched up for it. What ever will be, will be.... On the plus side, I get to Trial in February :) And I now to act on my new fitness program with a great new Personal Trainer and Nutrition Coach I had a meeting with today - so excited for that, it should be a very cool experience.
