The weather is beautiful today! All the snow is gone, and we have sunshine.
Had to get the weave poles outside and see how Chewy would do.
After watching some of Silvia's foundation videos, I've been using two food bowls, one at each end of the poles. The hard part, for me, is getting to the other bowl before Chewy is done eating the other. I'm happy with Chewy's progress.
Next, I'm going to try and do some harder entries. I did one in this video, but I don't think I brought him back far enough, and he missed the entrance. However, he did line himself up afterward. I'll do better next time.
Both dogs tested positive for anaplasmosis yesterday. It's a tick borne disease, similar to lyme. Chewy tested stronger for it than Oreo.
The vet prescribed doxycycline for a month. Then, they will have bloodwork to check their white blood cell counts. The vet was optimistic since we caught it before the dogs were symptomatic. Still kind of a bummer though. I had never heard of anaplasmosis, but I guess it may become as big a problem as lyme in my area.
