DGR RUN OF THE DAY
DISTANCE: 8 km DURATION: 1 hour
Mum informed me that Arcee was a flat dog all last night, but this morning she was totally recharged and ready for another adventure. We went the opposite route along the river and decided to go up in the hills of the Douglas Fir Trail. Arcee was a bit hesitant because it was far from river stops but luckily I knew there were little streams along the way. We climbed some serious elevation and got a good view of the city. Then we sprinted down and took a long soak in the river. We ran back home along the path with many cool off stops. Her leash may have a sloth on it but Arcee is far from it. Had such a good time pooping this pup out again hope to run her in the future. No Scoop to report.
DGR RUN OF THE DAY #4
DISTANCE: 11 km DURATION: 1 hour 32 minutes
Hello Arcee! What a treat it was to have a date with this pup on such a lovely Saturday evening! We went on a wonderful run along the river. Like me, Arcee starts out sprinting and then eventually we both tired out to a comfortable jog. Arcee preferred to be as close to the river as possible and would let me know of any path that led us down for a dip. We took about 6 river stops where she would take a drink and lay in the water to cool down. Then without a thought, she was back running again! It was such a nice evening that we decided to go a bit over the time (with mom's permission), and got to see a beautiful sunset. We were pooped when we got close to home and walked the last bit so she had some time to do her business. So excited to see her tomorrow for our next adventure. She had many poops and one pee and all the pets.

My first run with Arcee and she was a delight! It was quite slick on the sidewalks, but we made do.. Arcee loved the snow and spent her breaks burying her nose in the snow. I hope I get to run with her again soon! The Scoop: a few pees.

Sunday Funday Run Day! Well, what a fun day to meet and get out with Arcee. We had a smooth as butter run today taking in some of the sights and enjoying the fresh air. She even helped me earn back my “full Calgarian” card by finally going across the Peace Bridge with a selfie to prove it. Thank you Arcee. I had a lot fun and I hope to run with you again another time. The Scoop: 2 pees only.

Arcee is definitely the fastest dog run I have run in awhile. We started off at a good 4:35 km pace, then settled into a 5:05 pace. The weather was warm, but not hot, which was pretty conducive to our nice pace. We ran past a man holding a bird on the path. Unfortunately, I do not know my birds, so I'll just say that it looked like a Gray Parrot. We made it to Eau Claire and back and caught some music coming off of Prince's Island. All in all, a very enjoyable experience. 1 pee, no poos.

It was so lovely to meet Arcee today! Wow, is she fast! We had a great run along the river. It was such a nice Saturday afternoon for a run. We soaked up the sunshine on our way out and the storm clouds chased us back home. Arcee wanted to run along the paved path the whole time with none of this running on the grass nonsense! She did great cruising past many people and many dogs! We made it all the way to Edworthy Park where there were musicians playing music for all the people in the park. Great vibes and a fun run with Arcee!! The scoop: 3 pees, 1 poo.

It is always fun meeting a new DGR dog; especially one as athletic as German Shepherd X Arcee. Arcee's family are mountain bikers so it was fun to go along the pathway system and watch Arcee pick up the pace when she saw a bike. We also saw lots of road cyclists, a cool bullet car, and a recumbent bike. The geese and their growing goslings also intrigued Arcee. Well, I easily see a 10K in your upcoming hour-long runs. Welcome to the team! The Scoop: no poops and 2 pees. I love the long tongue's out Thursday photo!
