Life, Don't Talk to Me About Life

Quote Marvin, the Paranoid Android

Life has been off the deep end lately.  Having a dog recovering from TPLO was hard enough.  But then it turned out J's leg actually has a hairline fracture (7 x-rays didn't find it, took an MRI) so now he is on crutches.  It was end of fiscal year at work so that has been crazy, and to top it off, I am making a quick trip back east this weekend to visit a very sick friend and an ailing parent.

Trying to exercise one healthy dog, while keeping the healing dog quiet was hard with two people.  With J down it is just awful and I have no idea how he is going to survive the weekend while I am away.
You can't tire this thing out.
All of which is to say, Fawkes is getting the short end of the stick.  I only rode once this week.  Had a good jumping lesson, although he did have a weird issue with one of the jumps.  There were two jumps with boxes underneath, one was fine, one was terrifying.  We worked through it, but sigh.  That gets old.  He is getting a trainer ride while I am out of town this weekend and we might spring for a few extras of those.
