As far as the Tullster's competition career, we are going to return to competing as long as he feels like it. He's happy and healthy and bored right now, so it's back to work! Gotta keep livin'. He's a cattle dog, he's tough, and no one has told him he has cancer. He would be bored to death sitting around at home and he still has unfinished business....RAE, UD, AJP, and PT. Next weekend we're heading to Cincinnati to compete in a 3 day Rally trial. He has a shaved belly, a big scar, and he's gained a few pounds, but he's ready to return to rock star form. We planning to return to agility in January.
As always, a huge thank you to VCA Veterinary Specialty Center in Indianapolis and Dr. Aaron Wehrenberg for Tully's surgery and care. Those of you who know me know that I'm slightly picky about who works on my dogs <vbg>. I've referred patients there through the years, always with great outcomes. This time it was time for my own dog and I didn't hesitate as to where I was taking Tully. Two thumbs up....they're the best.
