a Taj MuttHall Dog Diary: Go or No?

Go or No?

SUMMARY: At home, not at trial.
Going to an agility trial was SO not going to happen this morning; after a much-interrupted night, I was unable to leave safe dashing distance of the facilities from about 4 a.m. until 7:30 or so. Finally got an hour and a half more sleep.

I've lost 3 lbs in a day, undoubtedly mostly fluid loss.

Then spent an hour slowly consuming 7-up and pretzels. "Clear liquids" are on the diet list, but I opted for pretzels rather than toast for my craving for salt. So far so good.

I'm a bit wiped out. But Full House is the last class of the day--I could still get there for that! Maybe I'll try calling a couple of people and finding out how far through the schedule they are, and go down just for that after another nap.

I'm thinking about this--I think that this is the first time in 14 years, 200-some-odd trials, that I've missed one because of my own illness. If I were a major-league baseball or football player, that would be making news.


  1. Well, that just sucks! Hope you're at the end of this... er... that this has run its course.... er....

    Just get well soon, already! :)

  2. Too bad you missed most of the weekend. Hope someone helps you tear down the stuff you left there so you don't have to go out until you're ready.
