kbella999 Definitely keep them running as long as you can (health wise). It is good for their mind as well as physically. Congratulations on an outstanding agility career with her.

Thank you! That really means a LOT to me! You can see her belly is shaved in the video. In the last 1.5 months, Pimg has lost 8% of her body weight. She has been VERY consistently 68.5 to 69 pounds for the longest time. But she dropped down to 63 (and has now stabilized at 63). I had just about every test run you can think of done... full chest xrays, ultrasound on her abdomen, full blood panels, EPI test, urinalysis, the works. Everything came back very, very normal. Since her weight has stabilized, and since all tests showed very normal levels, we're assuming this is an old age/weather related phenomenon. Basically, my vet said that other than having Addison's, Pimg is an absolute model of health (at least based on these specific tests- I actually just sent in a DM test and am waiting the results). I had even discussed retiring Pimg from agility and my vet thought that was a terrible idea. She thinks that I don't have to "go for the win" every time, but that stopping cold turkey would be a poor choice for Pimg's health and fitness.

The funny thing is that there are a few local people who think I'm "running her into the ground" since she's a larger, older dog. But the tests, my vet's opinion, Pimg's rankings and enthusiasm, it all doesn't lie. She might be an old lady, but man does she run like a younger dog!!! It really is impressive that she's running like that at 8 years old. Thanks for commenting!

sit,stay I envy you your spatial awareness! My dogs would be so much better if I could tell my left from my right.

You both look like you're having fun, too!

MaggieRoseLee Can't wait to see you running your new pup too!!

BTW, I've got a new puppy and it's like a new baby... I don't have enough hours in the day to hang here like I used to!!!

I recall countless threads of advice from you, and it was all certainly appreciated. It has been so much fun learning to run successful agility with Pimg! I hope it's been fun for others, much like yourself, to see her progress!
