I've been doing a wee bit of volunteer work for the local Border Collie Rescue group who are based in Wyoming since Colorado's group fell apart. I've been doing the occasional reference check and home visit when a local application comes up. This cute little BC mix is going to a family I just did the checks for and as it happens they live right across the street from my work so I'll be keeping my eye out for the little guy. The family has never had a dog before but they seemed very dedicated to raising a pup and excited about getting a dog so I feel confident things will work out. There are still loads of pups left (and more to come) if anyone local is looking for a dog - http://www.wybcrescue.org/available.php. They also have a lot of nice full grown BC's.
In other news Cody's rear legs seem fine today. No shaking at all when he sits and he's moving nicely when he walks and trots (he was pacing yesterday on his cool down walk after his final run, something he rarely does). I'll give him a few more days rest then gradually start working on those rear legs. If only the trails would melt we could do some hiking but they're still too icy just now.
My foot was fine for the rest of the weekend, go figure. I'm still keeping my appointment with the podiatrist because I can tell things aren't quite right.
I finally have enough dry ground in my yard to work the weave poles but of course it's supposed to snow today. Only a few inches but still, I've had enough. I have to drive up to Winter Park tomorrow and the mountains have been getting slammed with a winter storm. Berthoud Pass, which is one of the worst roads in the state if not the country for avalanches, should be interesting. I'm tempted to go up early and take my skis for a quick workout but I'm sure I'll be too tired and cold after my inspections to even think about it. Spring is almost here, right?
