I had volunteered to set up and work at an agility trial, all day on a Friday. Mali had a UTI and I would have had to leave her for about 8 hours, at a time when she needed to go out every hour. I checked with the head honcho and she said I could bring Mali with me, but keep her in the office (there are a few crates there but not open to trial participants). Every hour I would scout a time when there were the fewest dogs about, and get her out to pee and back in the crate. Mali can get snarky toward other dogs and I sure didn't want her barking at any competing dogs.
What was even weirder was that one of the participants had a ewe that gave birth that day and the ewe rejected one of the lambs. The owner brought the teeny lamb (wearing a cute little dog coat) into the same office the next day (Saturday) and was bottle feeding it in between agility runs.
What we won't do for our animals!
