Well firstly unfortunately Tia's back problem has reappeared so agility is on hold for the time being, which means I'm not doing any more ag shows this year, dad will be taking Rix to Caerphilly and Dashin Dogs to run him in anysize (Rix needs to keep up his fat fighters course). When I went to the specialists on Monday Tia had accupuncture and spent most of the time trying to pull the needles out (something which she's never done before) and then when she got up after about 15 mins, her back leg (the one she had problems with back in April) was totally dead, like it was paralysed, only lasted for a few seconds and then she was lame on it for a few more seconds before going back to being ok. So paranoid-ness goes into overdrive again! Rix is coming next week, he is joining the doggie gym there... I'm sure he'll hate it almost as much as the bike ride he gets in the mornings now! There's lots of progress on his weight, I think he could almost be described as 'remotely slim' now, something that you don't generally use when talking about Ricky. Still doesn't help him keep the anysize jumps up tho :o)
Dad and Bex... dad judged at Tuffley on the Saturday, then on the Sunday ran her in the rain and fell over and hurt his back... I did feel a bit sorry for him although gave him no sympathy when he was moaning about it (I said perhaps he should make some more appearances at the gym??? I'm such a kind daughter!) Then Bex had a 4th? (I think) in 1-7 jumping. At Rugby they were consistent... 3 E's. Dad's been really slack with her training recently and I think this performance has hopefully kick started him into doing something about it.
My job is going really well, I am really enjoying it, my bosses are fantastic, I have learnt so much already, can't wait for the next 11 months :o)
P.S Well done to Ant and Ruby who qualified for YKC ADOTY at Rugby... can't wait to see her at Crufts... just hope Ru comes in to season soon!
