My dog's foot hurts. Sorry kiddo!
She started limping on our walk after tracking and it's pretty tender. No more injured, but she is on strict rest. No romping in the field, no tracking... rest the darn foot stupid handler!
My poor dog. She tried, and looking back, demonstrated some very conflicted behavior. She knew her job but just couldn't do it.
She holds no grudges, and I'm sure she'll be ready to track like never before when given the OK. Our certification is being pushed out, but life happens. We'll get it!
