A rather blurry Gibbs in above photo, but a very happy Gibbs. We’ve been taking him to the park/obstacle course every day since July. And I am pleased to say, he can now do all the obstacles on the course! Hurdles and tunnels are easy peasey . . . what took more work, and concentration is
the see-saw. Learning to wait until weight redistributes so it swings down before jumping off is the difficult part.
Then there’s this “bridge” which needs to be taken quite slowly since the plank is only 10” wide.
And for a young energetic dog who always wants to run, Gibbs has to learn to walk more sedately across this one.
Gibbs is now 14 months old and a very healthy 38 kilos of glossy coat and muscle.
Unfortunately, he’s also got a bald patch on his pretty face again – 2 vet visits later and a swab done, he’s on anti-biotics and anti-inflammatories because the area is now infected. We hope it’s just a minor infection that will sort itself out, but vet wonders if there isn’t a “foreign body”, like a thorn, stuck inside. If things don’t right themselves with medication she is going to have to sedate, and go exploring.
