Lowri - I started limping last night. TM was very worried and kept me in her lap while she massaged me. I would get a little better and then a little worse. TM wasn't sure what to do because today was the dog show at Gray, TN. MC came up to pick us up and we drove up. When I got out of the car, I was really limping.
TM spent the next two hours massaging me. I got off the table and moved very nicely. Then going over to the ring, I started limping again. When we got in the building, TM moved me around a bit and I started moving well again.
In the ring, I started limping - just a little bit. I think TM and MC were the only ones who really noticed. The judge didn't see it. She gave me Best of Breed!
When we got back to the set up, TM flipped me onto her lap on my back. She went over my foot really carefully. She finally saw the split on my pad. Both TM and MC heaved a big sigh of relief. A little cut was much better than an unknown leg injury!
MC dashed off to the drugstore to get a liquid bandaid for me. She found one that didn't sting at all. They tested it on on of TM's cut fingers. No sting.
I got to go to the group place, but I was pretty tired by then. The judge thought I was pretty, but I didn't get a piece of the group place. I did get some food from MC. That makes the group place very worthwhile!
