Running Doods

Guess what we did this morning!!!
We practiced our running - the most ever!
Mom and Dad said we did the best yet!
We went 4 miles, doing a run/walk combination.
The most important thing is to have a loose leash and to stay along side our pawrents when we run.
As you can see, we are getting much better keeping the loose leash!

We ran on the sidewalk just so we could take these photos (we normally run on trail or in the road).  We can't take a picture when we are running "officially".  We started out and went about 1/4 of a mile and then walked a bit, we did that over and over but one time we went a half mile without stopping!  Mom and Dad can easily go a long way without stopping but they want to work up to longer distances with me and Stanley.  They don't want to overwork our muscles/pads too soon.  Sometimes when we do a walking portion it is because they know there are barking dogs up ahead and that me and Stanley will be distracted.  Mom says it is easier to walk through those sections right now.  But, the bestest thing is that they said we are really improving!

Only a few more days until we leave in the little wheelie house!

HI Murphy, Great job for both of you! I'm so impressed; Hunter has gotten out of practice with his obedience because of being sick but we just went out for a short walk. I definitely have to start working with him again!
Your girlfriend is so cute-bet you'd look stunning together. I'm excited about your trip because I haven't been to Zion before-can't wait to read about your time there.
It is so springy here today-love it! Have a great afternoon.
Hugs, Noreen & Hunter

You are two of active dogs I know. It is so good you have such great and active parents too.

WE get so much fun seeing all you get to do.


scotsmad said...

Bronte is beautiful...she looks almost like a scottie in that picture.

Now, we think you should both be attached to ONE pawrent....then you can control the run and make them keep going.

XXXOOO Daisy, bella & Roxy
