Default The fat lady has sung

Rocky (VAADC TT) has retired after a very short agility career
of four and a half years, which also included a one year hiatus.

This past weekend has forced me to look bluntly at a well-
trained, willing, talented, and friendly dog. The spirit is
there, but the body ain't.

These pictures are of Rocky pre-epilepsy, when he was one of the
top agility dogs in this area:

Rocky has been stumbling recently, though sporadically, so I
asked the Masters judge (a friend) to watch him. It's difficult
to watch a dog's gait while handling, at least it is for me.
All of my friends have convinced me that it's over.

So, barring a dramatic breakthrough in physiotherapy, this dog
is done.

--Matt. Rocky's a Dog.
