Whisper's Back

After Whisper's tendon injury she was laid off for a month. We did no agility or real exercise for four weeks. She was leash walked for one week before the agility trial Nov 14. We practiced agility together for the first time 3 days before the trial-and at a lowered jumped height. Needless to say I was nervous jumping her and my handling showed my indecision to push her too fast. Still in her qualifying standard run she was 21 seconds under course time so we weren't that slow.

Although we only qualified one run-the standard run on Nov 14 it was fun being back in the ring again with her. Our jumpers run was a blast but unfortunately I couldn't call her off an incorrect jump. But she obviously was having fun again.

After the weekend she was tired and earned a well deserved rest.

She definitely looks like she was having a blast! I'd say she deserves a rest, too!

That was fun to watch as well. The larger hounds have a longer gait that is different than the smaller ones. It is interesting to watch them move.
In that last pic she looks almost puppy like. Great Shot!
