Well, it turned out not to be a very good weekend!
During my runs at the agility trial on Saturday, I didn't do well at all. Wasn't up to my usual speed and I didn't want to take the jumps. Mum wasn't sure what was up with me. But she found out later!
Came home on Saturday, took a nap with Mum, then went outside to potty. When I came back in I coward over into the corner and wouldn't come out. Mum went to see what was going on and I started panting really hard, wouldn't get up and my heart was racing. So off we went to the emergency room - 'cause Mum had no clue what was wrong with me and hadn't seem me act in that much pain in a really long time.
When I got there I perked up a bit (Mum thought from the adrenelin) and after a little talk with the vet tech, and a quick checkup they thought I had a pulled muscle. So Mum took me home and thought she would go to our chiro vet the next day at the trial. But still Mum wasn't completely certain what was wrong with me. And I shook and panted most of the night. Neither Mum or I really got any good sleep.
Then Sunday AM we headed to the trail, because our vet was going to be there. When I got there I was trembling a lot, my ears were so far back it didn't look like I had any! She looked me over right away and thought that I had a really bad pulled muscle in my hip area. So she thought I should see our massage/reiki person first. So we waited for her to run her dog and then she looked at me right away.
She worked on me for a while, gave me some Traumeel and I started to feel a little better. When my muscles were a little more relaxed, then my vet gave me a chiro adjustment and I felt even a little better.
So then we headed home to rest up. I still didn't feel very well and I really didn't want to go out in the cold to potty, but I did. Mum put my coat on me, so that I would stay as warm as possible and keep my muscle warm.
I slept a lot, all afternoon, in between gnawing on my bone. Then I slept all night. Woke up this morning and I'm still wanting to sleep and dose off over and over, and I still hurt.
My vet says I should be wanting to be back to normal in a couple of more days. But it's no jumping for at least a week. But they say I'll most probably be OK for my next trial and the Silvia Trkman seminar in mid to late February!
Then on top of that Mum got really run down and now she has the flu. So Gracie is bored silly, and Mum and I are taking lots of naps. But we gotta get well!!!!!
Back to bed for us!
