After taking two years off to earn her Champion title in the show ring and bring two terrific litters of puppies into the world, Elettra resumed training for her life’s passion: hunting.
The first course of action is conditioning and since Saturday’s temperatures were in the upper 80s to low 90s, it was too hot for any outdoor aerobics. Which meant that everyone got a light session on the treadmill, and Elettra climbed aboard as though it had been her regular routine for the past two years.
In fact, I lost her later that afternoon and after searching, found her sitting on the treadmill patiently waiting for another session. Much to her dismay, once a day is enough.
Sunday’s temperatures were at least 20 degrees cooler so we took everyone for an afternoon fun run. They enjoyed the free time although Sophie was stiff afterwards, so we gave her some alfalfa pills which was a big help.
