It feels like I've never left home - jumped into work with both feet. I had left Lizzie the JRT behind to have her pups - and she tried to wait for me - she didn't realize that my flight was cancelled! She had 4 pups by herself - which was great since she had cesarean sections before. Good thing she waited until the end of my trip- she wasn't letting anyone get close to her pups. Hannah my kennel girl (4 year old niece) will be looking after the pups when I bring them home with me-I am contemplating hiring her for the summertime, she sure does a good job with the pups.
Work is like it was before I left - filled with crazy cases. Just a note to all of you people playing fetch with your dogs - NEVER use sticks. After camping on the weekend, this couple's dog was not eating very well. Eventually, we found a 5 inch stick that had rammed itself down its throat next to the larynx - only 1/4 inch of the stick was sticking out. It doesn't seem like there wasn't any collateral damage, that is left to be seen. At least my dogs like playing with 2x4 planks, and they are too cumbersome to throw around. For safety sake, I will throw rocks instead.
It will be soon that the next trials will be here - The Big One and Slash J in North Dakota. I hope my luggage will be back before then (it had decided to have an extended holiday in Chicago). Maybe I will have to get a new wardrobe, Walmart here I come. Monday morning I will leave work, quickly pack all of the dogs, and head out to my Mom and Dad's and then go the next day to Bowman, North Dakota. Looking forward in seeing the old trial crew - bound to be a good time!
When the trial is done in North Dakota, then I will finally see the new place in Saskatchewan - we are going to brand our calves that weekend - if anyone wants to come, they are invited - you just have to be prepared to have a good time after. I hope they sell beer by the case lot in McCord, Saskatchewan.
