A week ago Piper pulled a muscle in his right front leg (my fault...I shouldn't have taken him for a play date with another dog...too much craziness). Now just under a week from a Rally and Obedience trial and it's so hard to get him to slow down! It's very minor pull (I am not even seeing him limp anymore) and he's on Metacam (went to the vet yesterday) and no jumps or walks. On a scale of 1-10 for level of energy he's always a 9.5 so trying to get him to scale back is almost impossible! Plus he's got a break from his obedience training for Saturday and Sunday so he's pretty much bouncing off the walls lol. I may have to tie him down tomorrow as we're not going to be doing any excercizes until Monday and probably no jumps until Tuesday or Wednesday in preparation for Thunder Bay on Saturday and Sunday. Lesson learnt...no play dates 2 weeks before a trial!
