A Little Agility

Riley and I have been doing a little agility for the last week or so. I dare say we are actually doing a little training.  We worked on weave pole entrances using six poles and have done a little jumping.  I am trying to do things that will make her use both sides of her body and both canter leads.  I have not seen any issues with the leg that had the fractured hock.  Riley has just done so well that it is hard to not just get back to work.  But I force myself to go slow (even though we are progressing faster than I expected).
Since Riley has been doing so well, I finally decided to let her race around outside.  The last time she did this was July 26th when she fractured her hock.  Remember that the fracture occurred when she landed from catching a frisbee.... Riley is not allowed to catch frisbees anymore.

She looks so happy but it is scary to watch her run and turn.

She does look so happy, and what is more beautiful than a greyhound when they move, right? It must be so exciting for both of you. Congrats on the progress!

Hello, I've been reading your blog for a while, and finally decided to post. I am in love with Greyhounds and yours in particular. It's just wonderful to see Riley happy and healthy again!

Thanks everyone. Thanks for the nice comment Claire. Just wanted you to know I visited your blog and tried to leave a comment, but "embedded below the post" does not recognize google accts so it does not let a number of folks leave comments. Choose any other option.

You both look really happy! I'd never have guessed that she'd been laid up for so long after watching those videos.

She looks great, her weaves are awesome! It's great to see her zooming. I bet it was a little nerve wrecking though. :-)

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too... I can't believe that she has not done any agility for months. She doesn't seem rusty at all! I'm crossing my fingers that she will stay happy and injury-free for a long, long time now.
