So Bummed!

I'm not supposed to be at home this weekend. I'm supposed to be three hours away at an agility trial, but fate had other plans for us. After running around on the lumpy agility field for an hour and a half, I go inside our training building and while simply walking across the nice smooth mats, I rolled my ankle. Argh! I don't know why, but I instantaneously got nauseous and started to black out. I've never done that before. I felt like I was either going to throw up or pass out. It hurt, but not bad enough for me to react that way, it was so strange. I couldn't have had that happen in a better place, though. Dog people are the best, they knew exactly what to do and they are very resourceful. They elevated my foot and wrapped an ice pack on my ankle with a leash. Then they kept me company until someone could get there to drive me home. I really do have good friends.

It's better today. I can put weight on it, but unfortunately, there is no way that I can load and unload my car much less run in the trial. I'm so annoyed that we have to miss all 7 runs this weekend. It was going to be a nice small, friendly trial. And we really need the ring experience. Teddy is really confused today. He saw me pack up all of our stuff for the weekend, and now, he's wondering when we are leaving. I worked from home today, and Teddy's been keeping a close eye on me like he does when he thinks we are about to go somewhere.

On a lighter note, I have recently made Teddy some homemade pumpkin cookies. It's tough to find treats that agree with his sensitive stomach, but these do, and he goes crazy for them. My friend sent me the link to the recipe, which can be found here. I did make a small alteration to the recipe. I used a full cup of pumpkin and only 1 tablespoon of peanut butter. I rolled out the dough an used a bone shaped cookie cutter to cut them out. I didn't make them as thick as the recipe called for, so they only took 25 minutes to cook. Teddy was very grateful.
