Good morning Archimedes! I've missed you! Archimedes seemed not only to remember me, but he actually seemed happy to see me. So after some reunion cuddles we were off. I couldn't believe how well the run went. I mean, I knew Archimedes was a quick study and very smart, but his recent training has definitely made a huge difference. He ran by my side for the whole run. I could tell he noticed the different pedestrians that we came across, but didn't pull towards them at all. Here's the other huge difference, three times we passed a dog barking from a yard and he barely glanced in that direction. The only stops were to take a couple photos of this handsome guy, and so that he could give himself a little face scratch. Oh and of course to do his business, which was three poops, one solid and two quite runny and about 4-5 pees.

Good morning Archimedes and Tegan! Big smiles from Archimedes and a barking hello from Tegan. Both settled in for a treat and to suit up into their harnesses and we were off. The alley was icy ❄️ but that worked a bit in my favour as the pups were also slipping and had to negotiate their footing. Tegan still likes to announce our procession to the neighbours, but then settles in after a minute into our run. A bit of sniffing for the first few km until we got to the reservoir for a couple of photos. One with Archimedes' tongue curled out👅. We passed a group of walkers without incident until we came to the head of that pack. There was a bit of lunging that had to be managed. Then we continued on our way. As per usual, we were a little quicker on the way back. These two are great with the negative split runs! The scoop: Archimedes had two poops and 3-4 pees, Tegan had two pees and one poop.

It seems like forever since I have taken Archimedes out on a run so with his regular runner Pam out with pneumonia, I seized the opportunity. I got the added bonus of running with Tegan who I have never met before. The weather was more wintry and the there were small snow flecks falling almost like the inside of a snow globe. We made our way to Glenmore Park with Archimedes leading the way , me next and Tegan tailing. Her owner said she may have broken her tail but she seemed happy and her pace picked up throughout the run as she got more relaxed with me. One of the big changes since the last time I ran Archimedes was noticing his shorter tongue. In the summer, Archimedes lets his long tongue out as he pants but in the winter his tongue just peeks out of his mouth. The Scoop: 5 pees and 2 poops for Archimedes and 2 pees and 1 runny poo for Tegan.
