tricky t-day ~ he's back

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qFQa644IUE
It's official. He's back! And Oreo's thighs are 4 centimeters larger than they were 6 weeks ago. Apparently, that is a huge difference for a dog his size.

Do you think he's sneaking steroids behind my back?

The rehab vet said, "Send us an email, and let us know how he does at that June trial."

WhooHoo!

On Sunday, I filled out our entry to the DOCNA National Championships. Remember we qualified for nationals last August, with our really slow, but perfect, run in the pouring rain? The event is not until September, but they are already accepting entries. Don't want to get locked out, you never know, we may be future champions.....You can all say, "you knew us when."

Can't tell you how thrilled Oreo is to be able to play ball again. I'm keeping the ball low to the ground, but he doesn't seem to mind. It is the best feeling throwing that ball, and seeing his face light up.

This is the best news I've heard all day. As you know I've been MIA from the blog world this past week, with school and the trial, so I am SO happy to see that he's back in action! June trial? WOOHOOO!

ALL RIGHT YOU GUYS!!! You and Oreo both ROCK!!! I remember when Breezes measurements changed like that....it felt so wonderful because it was such tangible evidence that things were better and we had done good work. Can not wait to hear about the trial, whoo hoooo we here in CA are so glad to hear you both are BACK!

Go Oreo, Go Oreo, Go Oreo!!

I can't believe he gained 4 centimeters! That would be noticeable on a person! Wow, goes to show just how hard you two worked. I'm so excited he gets to trial...and a chance at the championship! Remember us when you're on top, Oreo

Woot! That's so cool that you'll be at DOCNA Championships. We're qualified for them too, but I imagine that you'll be in the East and we'll be in the West. Still will be fun!
