I thought I would update this a bit... after our first trial Zefra got quite sick. She has been back and forth to the vet since for some anal gland issues. Infections and illness have been pretty common around here as Stark is now sick as well. Two sick dogs, TONES of vet appointments don't leave any funds for trialing. Our training had some set back due to this but now that everyone seems to be on the mend (knock on wood, its been a killer winter... frown ) I am hoping to get back to classes and hit the trial ring.

Thanks for all the suggestions and I will let you know once we get back from the few trials I have planned in the next few months.

Thanks, it has been one heck of a year let me tell you. I don't know if it is a combination of genetics, environment (apartment living) or what... but I am very tired of having sick dogs and I am sure they are sick of being sick.. my poor pups. frown They both (knock on wood) seem to be doing okay now, but Zefra is still battling the anal gland thing and if at our next appointment (next month) she is still full and infected when expressed we will be opting for surgery (removal of glands) which will of course set us back again in training. She is very much bothered by this so it will need to happen if we can't maintain. It has been hard and we have had some very worrying nights here this past year.
