BUT I AM ALSO TYPE A AND IMPATIENT!!! I do not necessarily have to be in control, but there needs to be a plan in place and I need to know it. Nothing gets me more worked up than the unknown and trudging forward without a plan. Riley's fractured hock, for example, was out of my control, but it was diagnosed and the plan of action was implemented. I can deal with that. Even when the fracture was slow to heal, we extended the old plan of action and set new deadlines.
The worse part is the unknown and the lack of plan. I keep flip flopping because we simply do not know what exactly is wrong and there is no way to really know when it has healed.
And poor Seven gets no respect. She is a great agility dog. She is running very well and more consistently sooner than any of my other agility greyhounds. She deserves more credit, but I continue to dump her in Riley's shadow.
When rational perspective returns, I know I lead a happy, charmed life. In the big scheme of things, this is really no big deal compared to real problems. I really have nothing to complain about. BUT I STILL WANT TO RUN MY RILEY GREYHOUND IN AGILITY!!!
