In July 2003 we took Diz to the vet as she was having trouble jumping, we were referred to a specialist and it was found she has degenerative disc disease.  She had an operation at the end of july to remove the swollen disc which was at the base of her spine.  She came home 1st August 2003 and was on 6 weeks cage rest.  She will never be able to do a lot of the things she used to do again.  So she will just be my obedience dog, I have always said we should do more.  She has gone back to the specialist and he is sooo pleased with her progress, so she's gradually getting more and more exercise.  I can't believe the difference in her.

Dizzy is my first dog, she is a PAT dog, we had her as a rescue when she was 6 months old at the end of November 1999.  We think she is a german shepherd cross rough collie.  She is a very clever dog and learns things very quickly.  She used to do agility and flyball, now only does heelwork to music and obedience.  She is probably best at obedience as she is too slow for the others really. 
**Update - On 13th April, she won both Beginners & Pre-Beginners at Walsall BAGSD obedience show, so winning me out of Pre-Beginners and halfway out of Beginners!  I couldn't believe it, we only do a couple of obedience shows a year!

She is very laid back and is a bit of a tom boy, she likes to play with the boys and is very boistorous.  She is 100% with everyone and anyone, in the horsey world, they'd call her 'bombproof.'
