    DefaultAmber's Return to Agility

    Somewhere around the end of March AMber damaged something in her left elbow. 5 months of doing nothing followed by 4 months of doing only field work and This weekend (Jan 1-4th) we returned to agility. Our only exposure to agility traini9ng was one practice session about 3 weeks ago, no other practice or jumps or contacts or anything. Yesterday we ran Open jumpers and knocked a bar and a pop on the weaves, and ran Exc A with only 1 droped bar that was my fault. Today She popped her weaves in jumpers but we had our very first Q in Excelent A, and to make it even better Amber had a 1st place! Even more important Amber is not showing any signs of limping! One thing that is rather interesting is that we seem to have cured one of her two problems, she now has contacts, she sticks them and holds them till I release her. No more jumping off the top 1/2 of the A-frame or sailing off the teeter. She still doesn't have a start line stay but I think I can live with that and just run with her.
    We have two more day still to run still but she seems sound. Life couldn't be better than to have a healthy happy lab with a job, or two jobs or three jobs..

    Kelly and Amber
