I'm Bored

Yeah, so I'm starting to get a cold. Not cool. I want to trial this weekend. I'm bored so I figured I'd just talk about some stuff. Sorry if it is a little incoherent, my brain is a little fuzzy right now.

So a couple weeks ago I noticed there were some spots in Tru's eyes. There is one grayish spot right around the middle in each of her eyes. I had forgotten about it until last weekend, so we took Tru into the vet Monday to have it looked at. He thinks she has corneal dystrophy, which will not go away, but does not usually cause pain, grow or cause blindness. It doesn't sound like there is a treatment that doesn't include surgery and nobody knows for sure what causes it, but it is genetic. If anybody has any good information, feel free to share. I'm not going to worry about it unless it gets bigger or looks like it bothers her, but I will keep monitoring it.

I'm also really happy that Chuck got renewed for a 4th season. The finale on Monday was pretty epic. I am sad that they killed Orion. I don't know why I have gotten this random attachment to Scott Bakula, haha. I am not convinced that he wont come back in some form, whether it be flashbacks or even that he isn't really dead.

Blue was really good when we went to the field this week. We are still figuring out our timing but she really seems to be understanding "switch" and had a really nice turn out of a tunnel with me far away. One thing I really know that I need to do is tell Blue right before her head goes in that tunnel what she needs to do next. Have I said that before? Yesterday we tried something that a lot of dogs weren't even getting up close at a recent trial, an out to the DW with a tunnel closest to where I was running. We could not get this from a large distance. She would always go in the tunnel. I had to run with her to get her to figure out it was there. I wonder if she felt like the tunnel was blocking it or she couldn't really see it (more like she wasn't looking for it).

Tru is such a wimp. She always wants to get out of the sun as soon as she is done running or sometimes even while she is running. I've decided to try "Fluffy" or the invisible dog to try and get her to come back with out me going to get her. It's actually worked pretty good most of the times I've done it. I was even doing it a little with Blue (when she started to go off and do her own thing) on Monday and she was responding well to it too.

She was hauling butt yesterday on jumps/hoops/tunnels. She was also doing some pretty good sends of the end of the DW. She is really coming along, but still has her princess attitude. She gets a pass because she is so freaking cute. I love my Dumpster.

Yeah, so I hope we don't have to cancel this weekend because I'm sick. Blue and I really need some bonus Qs. This trial is always so fun too. It kinda sucks that we wont have our trailer there.


  1. Sorry to hear you might be getting sick! Hopefully it won't be too bad and you'll be able to enjoy your trial weekend. Good luck!

  2. Hope you feel better! You need to get some vids of your training, you don't have any, as far as I know!

  3. Thanks guys.

    Nat, I've got a couple from the backyard and park (there's one from the other day in my last post). I just don't film that often. I also don't want to ask my mom to film when we go out, lol. She practices too. I think I will try to get to the park more and take vids.
