Well I was going to do some more training with Jet this weekend but then I got sick. My stomach really hurts. It’s not like I’m nauseous, but my stomach just aches. But then I do tend to seem to get sick after a few hard weeks of dog sports. After I retire it’ll be nice when I can rest during the week instead of having to pack work into the week.
Oh well. it’s supposed to snow today anyway, and it’s a good thing to take it easy. I might actually lay low on the obedience with Jet for a while and just be at home and rest and take care of myself. I think I took a break from mourning Levi, too, and last night it crashed back on me again. I really miss him so much. The house is not the same. The house will never be the same again.
So we’ve decided to leave the ramp in the back yard. Mainly because Jet and Chase have this new not-so-fun game where they stare at each other and get all excited and then go flying out the dog door at top speed. And if the ramp wasn’t there, they’d probably crash hard onto the cement. Maybe it’d only take them one or two times to figure it out, but we don’t want them to get hurt. So the ramp is going to stay for a while. Maybe we need something like an elo touch to get them to stop but I’m not sure how that would quite work.
So life goes on, slowly, taking it easy, loving the four dogs that we still have.
