SUMMARY: So little time--
... And then Boost was sick for a few days, and then I was sick for more than a week, and then my back went out and then I had a big deadline at work and was putting in quite a few more hours than usual...
And here we are, looking at a weekend of USDAA agility in Palo Alto, and neither Boost nor I have done anything worth mentioning in a month. And my back is still a mess.
A friend who has run her in class might try running her this weekend if I think that I can't.
Chip is basically a good boy but loves to bark back at the neighbor's dog who throws himself at the fence and barks off an on most of the day. I tolerated that, mostly, although it got tedious, before Chip came along. Now I have to close him in the house when I'm here so that I can say that I'm at least making an attempt to keep him away.
His nose touch to a target is slowly getting better, about as fast as I'm working on it. Have done just a little tiny bit of trying to get him to back up or to stretch on command or to Shake.
Working on "come" a bit. Not enough. Sit and down stays are longer but I don't work on those enough, either.
Have bailed on my regular Thursday night class with Boost because I've been making it only about once a month for one reason or another. Might try to get into some basic foundation/groundwork/whatever class with Chip to motivate me a little more.
Tika's back legs are getting pretty weak, and *that's* really where I regret not doing more all the time. We should be walking and doing her exercises every day, but often I just can't. Or I'm not here.
Not much to say, really, which is why I haven't said it.
