Agility (6/2)

Gimme was a good girl as usual.  I could really tell she was bothered by my hesitancy as I had part of my mind on awareness of what things might "hurt".  There were a couple things which just shouldn't have been hard for her.  I took my time to work through it and rewarded copiously when she got it right. Interesting to me was to see just how affected she is by how I am.  While my little speed demon was never slow tonight, she was certainly also never her little speed demon self.

I am experiencing some new pain in my finger.  Its a sharp pain which runs from my hand right up the middle of the finger, on the inside.  It comes and goes.  I think its caused by the way I'm always trying to hold my finger out of the way while working and doing things.  Being unnatural and repetitive, I suspect a slight strain.  The acetaminophen wasn't controlling this pain, so I decided in the evening to use the hard stuff.  I took it 40 minutes ago and its already much better.

I'm also going unwrapped for most of the evening, so my hand/finger can move more naturally and will ice it.  Tomorrow I'm going to experiment with wrapping it in different way, so it doesn't restrict the movement of the first knuckle; thus allowing the hand/finger to move more naturally.

On a side note, we are working on a new trick.  I'm teaching her to play "roll-ly ball", a game that Frances invented.  Its hard for Gimme because its requires her to only use her nose - which is of course, always a challenge.  I've also come up with a cool idea for a small wooden chest I've had for ages.  It's going to take some fabricating to make it work for what I have in mind, but will lead to yet another cute trick.

Well, the woozy headed affect is starting to be really apparent, so I better get off this 'puter.  In mere minutes Gimme and I expect to be cuddled together on the couch, sharing a bowl of ice cream.  She's so polite, I just can't resist her charms.
