too much snow and ice to work Jasmine again today, so I went with the instructor to register Jasmine with my local vet. Jasmine’s been a bit wary of the vet following an illness that she had when she was younger, but she showed no signs of it today. the vet was lovely to her, taking time to stroke and talk to her whilst she was examining her.
Following the visit, we took jasmine and the instructor’s dog, a 9-year-old Labrador/Retriever cross, to some woods where they had an absolute blast in the snow. At one point, jasmine was rolling over and over, I swear she was trying to make dog angels in the snow!
So that’s it. no more training between now and when I go back to work on the 4th. As soon as the ice melts, i’ll be taking her outworking. I dread to think what she’ll be like. very full on I’d imagine.
I suddenly feel very green and vulnerable with this very new dog. I think what I really need is a few consecutive successful walks under my belt.
