Perry Trial - Seven

Seven's agility trial in Perry was not as successful as Riley's.  She did not earn any Double Qualifiers, but it was not for a lack of trying.  Many of her runs were very good.  Here are the clean runs we did have:
We did make it through all of our runs with no trick wrist issues, but I biked Seven twice and her bad wrist came up lame both times for a few minutes.  But she was always fine for her agility runs later in the day.  I do all I can to make sure her wrist is warmed up and loose.  Rotations, stretching, flexing, and compressing seem to ready the joint for the torquing and twisting that occur in agility.  Plus she is on joint supplements and Adequan.  I just want to keep Seven running for as long as possible.  She loves it.  Maybe other than chasing squirrels and rabbits, I really think agility is her next favorite thing to do.

I did make an interesting discovery about Seven this weekend.  Apparently, she likes to run with her tongue hanging out the side of her mouth. Silly hound!

It's called ETS: Escaped Tongue Syndrome. :)

If the tongue helps her run, then it's all good! lol

Hysterical, I LOVE the tongue out of her mouth photos.

I noticed her tongue was mostly on the left side of her mouth. I think the weight of it on the left side unbalances her and makes her wrist give way! (JOKE)
She's so beautiful! I think it's great that she loves agility!

Her tongue is hilarious!
She looks amazing in those two runs!

The only thing I'm looking forward to with the cooler weather coming is getting photos of Beryl with her tongue in her mouth instead of a foot long and covered in slobber! It might help Seven to keep cool with it out? Or maybe it's just a Seven thing! At least it's not covered in slobber:)
