I apologize for being so quiet, but my hand continues to give me problems. Typing seems to make it swell up more than anything and I'm not one for hunt-n-peck. I'll be seeing Doc Weaver tomorrow, moved up from my scheduled Monday appointment, because of the swelling. He says we may have to do the surgery much sooner than I was campaigning for.
Agility class was super. Gimme was focused and fast and back to her usual style. Probably because overall I was feeling better. We had a few challenging spots and were able to work through them nicely. She really is the smartest dog I've ever worked with. Early last year I taught her send to a tunnel opening that was turned away from her and it took her a few tries then, but she figured it out quickly. We haven't seen that exercise since then, but it was in tonight's course and she aced it as if we'd just trained it recently. She rarely forgets anything.
Between her runs, everyone was complimenting her and talking about how smart she is. They really like watching her learn things because she puzzles through it and then when she gets it, she's so obvious; like, "ohhhh, why didn't you just say so..." Then she's cocky about it. Everyone loves her attitude, and of course, how cute and pretty she is.
I have some video's from William, but just can't bear the thought of how much swelling would result from me sitting here editing them. So you'll all just have to wait.
Meanwhile Gimme and I have been walking every day, trying to get caught up. I'd hoped to make up all I got behind and be ahead before surgery, but if they move it up, I may not be able to do so.
