I just had a thought.

A quick one, I promise.

Because sometimes I get stuck on how hard and annoying things are (really? the last few posts are NOTHING like that. Arhm)… and I forget to look at the good stuff.

I just thought about something someone said about doing RC and that was that by the time you compete your dog has done SO MANY dogwalks that it will be super confident which, for a fear-of-heights dog like Lu, is perfect.


And then I remembered back to when I first got a DW-width plank and put it on the ground and Lu wouldn’t even run over that. She didn’t want to TURN AROUND on it because she thought she was going to die. Seriously. I had to do tricks on it to get her confidence up just being on this plank on the ground…

And now, nearly at 1m high, she can run full-speed across and not bat an eyelid.


And if that’s not something to be positive about, I don’t know what is.

Sometimes I need to remind myself to cheer up: things are ok, and will get better.  (PMS doesn’t help, too.)

      Yeah 3 stride DW hey!? Silvia said not to start with speed cos she wanted to do a 3-strider but was leaping at the end but I ignored her advice 😉

      PMS is horrible. I like your idea about the uterus.
