I'm Jennifer living near Atlanta, Georgia. This blog is about my greyhound adventures. Thank you for letting me brag about my wonderful greyhounds and share our ups and downs as we train and compete in agility and obedience. We have also done a little dock jumping, tracking, swimming, and lots of hiking. No couch potatoes on this blog! My hounds still work and play for a living and they love every minute of it!

The hounds and I competed at a three day agility trial at the beginning of August. Seven was almost perfect! She ran clean 5 out of 6 times resulting in earning Double Qualifiers #17 and #18. Just two more to go!
We did have one carpal joint issue on Saturday morning. She came up lame goofing off in the morning when I try to carefully burn off some of her extra energy. As usual, she walked out of it a few minutes later and as you can see went on to compete for the rest of the day with no additional problems. I am just so thankful we have figured out how to manage this soundness issue and that she still does so well at agility. I really am amazed. The rehab vet has never seen an injury quite like this one.
