I started training the dogs on NewYears again, so I am out there on the patio tonight, in the freezing cold, working first with Skippy , then Emilu. There were several very slippery areas and my foot skidded several times, but no falls. When I was done with the dogs, I stayed out to "train myself" to do very smooth about turns for obedience. I want them to be so ingrained in me that I don't have to think about them. I knew it was pressing my luck, and sure enough, I turned, felt myself s....l....ooooooo..www....lly slipping, reached back with my hand (so I could possible break my wrist too!) and pretty much caught myself so I didn't it hard at all. It was the softest fall I've ever had, but I'm feeling alittle sore in my right hip right now.
