    DefaultWhy TDI and CGC are so important...

    Since I was hobbling around today because of a pulled muscle, my good friend, who breeds French Bulldogs, told me this story over lunch and I had a good laugh, so I thought I'd share....

    She got a TDI for one of her Frenchies and not long after that she was lying on the couch with pain in her back. Her TDI dog was out in the kitchen causing a ruckus. She couldn't get up easily so leaned back over the arm of the sofa as far as she could go so she could look into the kitchen and yell at her dog. When she leaned back up, she realized that the pain in her back was gone.

    Then she got a CGC for another of her Frenchies, and soon after that she was suffering from a problem with her shoulder. She was sleeping on the sofa when her CGC dog jumped unannounced onto her stomach. As she was jack-kniving and "umph-ing" due to the unexpected weight on her stomach, she hyper-extending her arm and then realized that her shoulder pain was gone.

    As she finished her story laughing aloud, she said that the training for TDI and CGC were the best money she ever spent.... ;D

    On a related note, I was having back pains two winters ago, and I had three dogwalking clients out one day. I lost my balance on a slippery patch of ice. BOOM down I went smack right on my hiney - the impact forced my spine back in line, and by the time I was vertical again, I was also pain free.

    None of the dogs had titles though.

    Well, he hasn't helped my back but Ranger was making a nice little heating pad last night.

    That is hilarious. My TDI/CGC dog has only helped to cause pain though....

    LOL! Great stories!

    NLR: My mom fell on ice and hurt her back once... then went on this rickety wooden roller coaster that actually had a sign that said "not for people with injured backs/necks"... well, she went on anyway and didn't have a back problem anymore when she got off!

    So does that mean I should go down the infamous hill with Ender again?
