UGH!

So I thought Kili was cold and that's why she was so sluggish at class on Sunday.

Took her to the barn to train tonight and could NOT get her moving at all no matter what kind of idiot I acted like. I was getting really frustrated. Went to take off her jammies and found this:

Left hock


Normal right hock


Side by side comparison


Now, I had to put the jammies on this evening so I know it wasn't THIS swollen, however the leg has obviously been bugging her since at least Sunday, and I think since Saturday. But other than some weird little quirks she hasn't shown any obvious indication until this swelling that there was a problem. She has not (unbelievably) been lame at all and only started being a huge screaming drama queen when I was manipulating it and trying to position her for x-rays. She was such a dumb dumb that I only took one view to make sure there was nothing obvious and the rest I will do tomorrow after sedating her heavily. But I did notice an odd purplish area that makes me think it could have been a wound that became infected and spread to the rest of the soft tissue. I started her on antibiotics as a precaution pending her x-rays tomorrow. Seriously. If it's not one thing with this dog, it's something else. FML.

X-rays were clean. Had to knock her out completely to get it because she screamed and thrashed like the darn leg was broken. Not impressed.

I'm hoping it's just a soft tissue infection. She's got her antibiotics and anti-inflammatories and I will be using the cold laser on it every day until we have to leave on Saturday to visit family. Hopefully by next week it'll be better.

Poor Kili I hope she's feeling better soon!

For better or worse, Newton has officially been entered in his first CPE trial. It'll be my mom's first trial as well, so we'll see how it goes As long as he's comfortable and has fun, I'll be happy, although he has been doing very well in class lately.

I'm in Jess Martin's puppy foundations online class and it just started. Very excited! We're not in any local classes until beginning/mid January, so this will give us something to work on.

The first week lesson plan is mostly much stuff Watson knows at a basic level (spin, back up, going around an object, etc), so it will be a good way to start out. My goal is to get out and proof these in new places, since he has them down in the house but they're not all solid in exciting places.

I like how she started out with a doggy personality quiz and the results recommend which exercises you should spend more time on. Watson scored almost 100% in the confident pushy puppy category. No surprise there.

Feist is learning cik and cap, it's adorable. I can't believe she's old enough that we can start doing baby agility foundation things. She's also generalized this to everything. My leg, the trash can, whatever she can circle. Stimulus control. Right.

Had another lesson tonight and Siri totally rocked it. We missed our last lesson due to a huge traffic jam (a 30 minute drive took 2 hours ) and the lesson before that Siri just had such an off night, just would not engage at all, so I've been kind of bumming about agility.

Tonight we played barrel racing (OMG I can't wait to compete so we can do NADAC extreme games, eeee!) to work on front and rear crosses. It was so much fun that if you could die from fun, I would be dead. To make it better the instructor was really impressed with her during this exercise as well. All our front/rear cross work has totally paid off.

We also worked on outing around barriers to a target, and worked our way up to multiple barriers and a lot of distance, and she nailed it almost every time (except when she decided to make her own shortcuts ). My instructor said that with this kind of thing we are going to have to raise criteria very quickly because she's so smart and she has such a high drive to get to the target. NO BIG DEAL!

Then we worked on an exercise to teach Siri to collect and turn. It involved footwork on my part. Siri did great. I think I need more time with the instructor She ended up taking video of us so that I can watch it when I go to practice because I could not get it down, at all.

So yeah, those were my favorite parts of tonight's lesson.


And to top off the night, Siri found a mouse for the trainer Yay terriers.

Cliff notes: My dog is awesome.
