Scrapped the caRV plan when I realized half of what I needed was in ct and then at 5AM Stella was reluctant to jump in the car. I should have known then. I mean she's been kind of imperceptibly off like not lame but not wanting to do the backyard stairs but then they are no problem and then reluctant to jump on the bed and then fine and then three legged for a couple of seconds and then perfectly fine again and pacing on walks and then back to the happy prance. So I skipped class this week and had a short (5 or 6 minutes of two jumps and six weaves) practice with her at off leash and she was fierce. But I should have known. But she seemed fine. Until 5 am this morning about not wanting yo jump in the car but I thought well maybe it's because it's 5 in the morning.

Drove the two and a half hours. Got there in time for the walk through. Had a plan to run it like we had faulted. It would be easy to with this standard course. She was moving fine hoe our warmup. Her happy gait all even. But then we went to the start--and I GOTTA FIX THIS cause it's now a behavior and way too an obnoxious and unacceptable a behavior for my sweet dog to practice--on release she takes off barking and policing the ring exit until she is sure she is safe... And then she's back and all normal and ready to run.
And she was great we were doing it running like we'd already faulted and she was tight and fast and about the seventh obstacle she came out if the tunnel more subdued and was thinking about not taking the next jump lots of dogs had pealed off of but then she took it and for the next few obstacles jump-DW-jump-jump-chute-AF-table she was with me but not right. She was willing and running and getting her contacts and sweet but not right. Leaving the table she was three legs. Oh my Stell I'm so sorry.

Bklyn vet (not a sports vet) say hind end out of whack. Some illopsoas, left quad, lower sachrem tender...... Meds and rest and then rehab

She's gonna be so pissed when she finds out she's not allowed to do any of the things she loves.

I am so sorry... I hope Stella heals quickly.

Thanks. We've been through the illopsoas twice before but perhaps because we builut her up so this time--I really worked hard on it and she's been clear of if for two years I just didn't see it. But then the first two times it was no question.
