So Jetta, Tenie and I are off on another whirlwind adventure. Tomorrow our flight leaves for Belgium, where I will engage in kicking some international ass-well, at least that is what we hope happens. We're going to Belgium because of a swim meet. We have to fly through Germany instead of England-where the rest of the team is flying-because England's laws against bringing dogs into the country are so stringent. We'll be there until Monday May 15, which doesn't really meana very long trip. I'm a little worried about jet lag, but oh well, I'll just have to go over there and do the best I can. Hopefully the results are much better than the last swim meet I went to. (The one in London Ontario. The one where I was very sick and was still taking anti-biotics...very bad). The results weren't so impressive there, but I'm confident things will turn out better this time.
I just got an email this morning about the World Championships that I am working towards. The trials are in August and that will be the next big meet after this one in Belgium. We also have a crazy insane training camp in Calgary at the end of August-that is if I make the team of course. (Keep your fingers and paws crossed).
Tenie and I have to go pick up our passports this morning, yes I know cutting it very close. We also have to go find snacks that won't be taken away when we go through security. For example, bananas, since they are a fruit, are not allowed to leave the country-or enter another one for that matter. :) I also have to do some laundry, pack and go to see the massage therapist. My shoulder is acting up again and I want to make sure everything is in working order before I leave. I know Jetta won't be happy when I get the suitcase out. She always mopes and refuses to go to the bathroom. But, I bought her a new bone, which I will give to her when we get to Belgium and hopefully she'll forgive me by then. Also, she gets to see the team's massage therapist and Jetta loves her, so that might console her little doggy anger too.
Anyway, I need a shower and some more breakfast.
PS: Medley was able to come home last night. The gravel started moving and they did not have to operate. He will be going to his regular vet this morning just to make sure everything is still healing properly.
