The 11,000 mile stick

Mom and dad went for a 13 mile run this afternoon.  While on the run, dad passed his 11,000th mile since he started running.  Right after that event, he saw this really neat stick and picked it up for me.  He carried it during the run. When he came home, I was really surprised to see he brought something for me and Murphy.  I decided to call it our 11,000  mile stick.  I think it is just right for me and Murphy to share.


This is the 11,000 mile stick

It is just right for sharing

Hey congrats on your Dads' 11,000 mile!! What a feat! I had to stop running a few years back because of a hamstring and I still miss it. I never ran 13 miles though! How nice of him to bring you guys that big stick!

Your daddy is thinking of you all the time, even when he is running. That is so sweet. Hope to see you in your Doodle Clubhouse with some mates soon. I really like that house. It befits the King of Doods.

Dad says it is what keeps him young enough to keep with me and Murphy.

Stanley said...

Me and Murphy have to wait a wile before we can run with mom and dad, but we are getting lots of practice on the hillside.

He kinda spoils us.

Sometimes we share better than other times.

We are practicing mouthing off the baton for the relay races.

It is more fun to share things.

Is the stick smooth? Is it soft?

Well, good for you! You guys are so lucky to have parents who are willing to carry a stick just to give to you guys.

Huggies and Cheese,

By the way, congratulations on getting "snipped"

Wow, congrats to your Dad for all that running! Gosh, my peeps wouldn't run that far unless they were being chased! BOL Looks like a perfect stick for some double-chew action.
Grr and Woof,
