    Oscar had a seizure on 1/26. It happened when Daddy arrived home after a week's vacation, and I thought it coud have happened because of the extreme excitement. Oscar has been lethargic, particularly in agility, since then. I have also noticed his fur seems dry. I started wondering if he has...

    Mali's First Trial

    This is a post I thought I would never be making. I have been running my boy, Oscar in trials for over 3 years, while Mali, my rescued girl who has fear issues, has stayed home. We have worked very hard to help her with her issues, and I have also trained her in agility, but mostly alone because...

    Stressed out over allergy (very long)

    Last weekend was my club's agility trial. Oscar did two runs on Sunday morning, and about 2 PM I called DBF Steve to come get him, because I was working teardown. I got home about 6:30 PM, and Oscar's eyes were so swollen that one of them was completely shut. I tried holding a cold pack...
