Nosework (2/6)

We went to class, even though I've had a severe migraine since Gimme's episode on Thursday.  I got into my chiropractor yesterday and it helped a lot - I was even better after a 2 hour nap.  Still, the drive to class was interesting and challenging, especially with all the bright lights and reflections.

Our first search was a vehicle search outdoors.  Gimme found one of the two hides.  She was not terribly interested in searching and I wondered if the cold was diminishing her enthusiasm, even though I've never noticed it before and she was wearing her t-shirt for extra warmth.

The second search was a series of 4 threshold hides.  Gimme found them all, but again was her not her usual focused and enthusiastic self.  At this point I concluded she was worried about me... and indeed it was hard to for me to focus and the lights were very painful.

Before our third search I talked to Gimme and told her I would be alright and I needed her to do it all for me, because I couldn't.  I urged her to have fun with the search and not worry about her Mom.  This was a repeat of the threshold series, though the hides had been moved about.  Gimme went in and knocked it out of the park... boom-boom-boom-boom.  She did them so fast it was hardly any fun at all.  

I learned on 11/9 we had been moved up and got into the Level 2 Interior trial on December 7th.  I'd no more than sent in our check when I learned we moved up to a working slot for the Level 1 Container trial on December 6th.  We need a leg to complete our L1C and of course I'd like to earn the L2I.  So cross any body parts you can spare.
