Ya know, I thought Heidi was fit and active. But when I looked at her, and had to lift her into the vehicle afterward, I realized she had packed in a few pounds. Not that much though.
We can't stop our dogs from living life. But we don't have to ask them to do things like jumping. Novice Obedience has no jumps. It's another possibility. Maybe it is just because I am getting old. When I was young the idea of falling off a horse didn't worry me. Now I look at those mammoth beings and say, yeah maybe not. I don't heal so quick anymore either. I got dogs that would jump off a cliff for me. I have to be careful how I use that power. 6 of my dogs will be 9 or over this year. I want to keep them as healthy and fit as possible for as long as possible. I retired Heidi after her tendon tear.
Babsy is 11.5 years. She hurt her muscle or tendon a couple of times. Jumping up on the bed, she would cry. She prefers her own bed now. It sucks them getting older.
