Agility, exams, and flus

Hi guys! Sorry I haven't posted much in a while. I tried to post something last week but it wouldn't let me put up any pictures, so I pretty much gave up on that.

I've been somewhat bogged down with prelims (midterms). I had 2 prelims this past Thursday, one of which was Organic Chemistry. Need I say more? Tomorrow I have an Animal Nutrition prelim that I should be studying for. Except instead I'm blogging. Sweet.

I also got a big sick this past week. I woke up with a sore throat and congestion/mild headache early this past week. Thankfully our school's hospital confirmed that it wasn't swine flu, which has been spreading around our campus like wildfire. Eep.

On a dog-related note, we had agility class again today! I had to miss class last week because of something else I couldn't miss. Today we learned the chute and a low-set teeter. Winnie did great with both of them, and we ended the class with short sequences of about 3-4 obstacles, including a full-on chute. She shows so much enthusiasm for agility- I'm so happy that we have the opportunity to finally learn in a class setting!

My 2x2 weave poles are sitting in the corner of the living room. I have admittedly not been spending much time with it. I simply have not had the time to train Winnie with it, which really stinks. I do have fall break coming up in 2 weeks, so hopefully I can do some weaves with her then.

Sorry I have no pictures this time. I forgot to bring my camera to agility class!

poor you Esther being sick; so glad it wasn't the swine flu; I know it is rampant at places, especially college/school campuses

glad Winnie got to do agility class this week

I'm sure it is hard to try to juggle it all with studying, being sick, class work and spending time with Winnie; I bet though she is always the best thing you see when you come home after a long day and see her "smiling" face welcoming you home

betty

Hope you are feeling better.
Chelsea "graduated" from agility class, last night. We did everything except for weave poles. I can barely keep up with her. She is a flying girl!
hugs and hang in there w/your mid-terms,
Cheryl in IN
