Medical Update #5 – Graphic Caution

September 29, 2013

Slept well last night.  Amazing since I slept almost all day yesterday.  Today – Sunday, day 4 after surgery feeling pretty good.  I got up in the morning.  Today I am off all the medications except the aspirin.  They say I have to take one special aspirin a day (no idea what it is but […]

Medical Update – #4

September 28, 2013

Everything went fine for the surgery.  They took great care of me at the hospital.  I have to say that just about everything they said included a phrase like “sure, but you probably wont remember”…  well, I do , I remember every detail at every step.  So whoever the two students were that were having […]

Enjoying The Training

September 23, 2013

During my down time of about 5 months I decided that I would do some quality training and re-training of my dogs.  It was a really good decision on my part.  I was adamant that I would not take time from Ice’s competing to retrain his contacts because I knew it would be about six […]

Medical Update #3

September 19, 2013

Okay.  We have the final verdict.  I went back to the doctor that did my treatment on my muscles last week.  He said my hips stayed level (that was good) he also said that I was about 75% better than last week on some things.  However, I still had a lot of pain. He said […]

NW3 – First Attempt!

September 15, 2013

I want to start out saying that I am thrilled!  And I am very proud of both Ice Man and myself on this first attempt at our NW3 title.  I guess by my use of the word “attempt” you already got that we did not get it  🙂   BUT, we sure were darn close. […]

Student Perspective

September 10, 2013

Last night I had my agility 1 class with little Rue (Sin).  This is a class that I really enjoy. It is small and laid back and it is not taught by me!  This class is taught by my daughter and she really does a great job. Not only do I get to participate in […]

Pendulum Swing

September 9, 2013

Currently I have four dogs in some state of “agility training”.  All are at different places in the process and it got me really thinking about my students and their training.   With agility there is a TON to learn.  As an instructor I have to decide what things are important and prioritize them.  How […]

Medical Update #2

September 7, 2013

It has been a little over a week since I had the injection into my hip.  I have been feeling really good and able to run full out and do agility.    I think this is really a good way to utilize my time while I wait for surgery.   Up until last night I […]

Hard Work & Satisfaction

September 3, 2013

I have always been a little bit of a workaholic.  Okay, a lot a bit.  I have always gotten a lot of satisfaction when a job was done.  I love the “before and after”.  Jobs were never too big, I was patient and just got into a “zone” about things.  The satisfaction that I got […]
