I fell on Wednesday when out with Icy on my own. I was stupid and over extended how far I could go and had a hard time getting home. Dave and Jason helped but it was Icy that got me through. We were on a incline and I turned around to see what Icy was whining about. It was a dog coming up behind us on a lead. Anyway, a lot of people wanted to help but I told them I had to learn to do it on my own. So eventually I got on my knees and told Icy "up". He stood like a rock and I used my crutch and his harness to get up. Now this is something I had been meaning to practice with him but hadn't yet. He's so amazing with everything but other dogs. So I guess from now till he stops loosing his top when he sees another dog near us, he'll wear his hated muzzle. I figure I can take it off in buildings. He'll learn. It's all instinct. Dave couldn't believe it. He wondered how we could walk at all. Its like a haze clouds his brain. I'll give it to Dave though, he trusts me to keep at it. Anne for once is all behind me.
