Can't resist this face after all.
I thought to myself for a second about taking Champ with me on my run. When we first got him I tried to run with him and it was a total disaster. He is so ADD he would stop at every mailbox, fire hydrant and street light to mark his territory. How a dog his size can pee 2 times in one walk still baffles me. We've been working on his walking since we got him and he finally has stopped pulling me around the neighborhood. So I decided today was the day. I mean I know he can run...
.....but can he run with me????
We started off a little rocky. He was zig zagging quite a bit and I almost tripped over him a couple of times. Then we started to get into a groove and he was doing really well! I could tell I was going a little slow for him. At some points he would actualy drag me along behind him...thanks for rubbing it in my face man. We were outside for about 35 minutes and I think we were running for around 30 of them. We stopped a few times so he could still sniff some trees and take a dump. Thank God it was trash day in our neighborhood. I hadn't thought about what to do with the bag of poop for the rest of the run, so I just dropped it into someone's trash can. I'm sure that is bad neighbor etiquette.
When we first got Champ I really wanted him to be a running dog and when I realized he sucked at it I kind of gave up. But I'm so happy that we are making some progress! I can't wait until the spring when we can run more often outside.
For now we'll have our hikes!
My camera died so not many actual pictures from today. I had leftover tuna burgers from Tuesday in a nice big salad for dinner and I'm just pouring Matt and I some Thursday night wine. We do have reason to celebrate after all....
4 Months Until The Big Day!!
