I leave in just over 2 weeks for England. Wow. This week I need to get my vet work put together and call the Reception Centre at Heathrow and ask a couple questions regarding whether I need USDA approval on a certain form. I also need to book a rental car for the 5 days after the trial that we are spending seeing some castles in Wales and then taking some time in London to do more thorough sight-seeing then we had last year due to the volcano and paperwork mix-ups that lost us more than a day. I am not sure yet what to do with Drifter while we're in London though. Leave him at the hotel while we go in/out of the city? Bring him along - then I couldn't go into the museums/cathedrals/shops. Leave him in the car at the train station (doesn't seem secure!)?
I am glad I left 2 weekends clear before the trip though, as I've been so busy till now that I haven't really been able to focus on it, as just keeping my schedule straight and going where I am supposed to is a job in and of itself.
Seri in her Back on Track coat and wrist wraps, after being lasered and stretched yesterday.
Seri now allows me to gently stretch her shoulder, but there is still more resistance than her uninjured one has. She is normally VERY flexible, so the difference is quite obvious to me. Sigh. In other news, in a matter of a few minutes I taught Strafe a stop command for his dogwalk ramp. I have a single plank on a 16" table in our barn aisle (it's been rainy again) and he's been running it a bit here and there, which he's doing very nicely. I can send him to a toy, or lead out and run with him, and both get the same results. Perfect. So today I thought he is so smart and so tuned into sounds and verbal commands, that I could probably easily teach him a stop on the DW (or at least a pause) for those courses with really hard turns. So today I taught him a stop command. In about 3 minutes. Have I mentioned this is one SMART puppy??
