Where do I start? Let's just say, I'm going to be seeing A LOT of Dr. Vet for the next few months...but this isn't a bad thing. I think...
Mom went to my OB or-ee-in-tation last night. Come to find out, only two dogs from our class of 12 passed. But only two other dogs (and mom and I) have returned to re-do the class. She saw some of our old trainers who said they were glad we came back, even their dogs had to re-do basic OB, so we dont' feel so bad now!
Anyway, mom saw Trainer Beth (who we also found out is president of our dog club!) who will not be teaching our class this time. Boo! But then we found out, while she won't be TRAINING us this time, she'll be IN our class with one of her new foster dogs! Trainer Beth will be a classmate! How cool is that?!? So now I know two other dogs and their peoples and trainer Beth.
Then mom broke some major news...our new trainer is Dr. Vet!! WHAT THE CRAP?!?! We've seen her up there with her dogs in Novice II, but she's actually teaching our OB class this time! I think that's pretty cool. Dr. Vet will now know me inside and out (literally!).
So today, mom actually took me to Dr. Vet to recheck my elbow to see if I needed to go to the ortho-pee-dic Dr. Vet. She dropped me off and around 2 p.m. got the phone call to come pick me up....and the news is......
MY ELBOW IS HEALED!!
Dr. Vet said there are no issues. She thinks maybe it was either where I was still growing or maybe I had a small fracture or something, but it's all gone. My elbows also so NO signs of displaysia and I'm all good to go!
I was still a little loopy, but mom and Dr. Vet were talking about seeing each other next week when I go to school. Dr. Vet said she's never trained one of her patients, so she's interested to see how I do seeing her without the white coat.
How will I respond? I'll respond by keeping my booty away from her in case she wants to stick anything up it!!
So to recap, my elbow is great but I'll still see Dr. Vet each week for eight weeks at school. I think I can deal with this. At least we know half of the class already! The rest of my classmates consist of a chi, a Bernese Mountain Dog, a Jack Russell and a chow mix. I'm pretty pumped for school now!
