DGR RUN OF THE DAY
DISTANCE: 7.6 km DURATION: 1 hour 3 minutes
Hello Miss Bowie! Were we ever in for a treat today on our run. First, I have to mention you were extremely thirsty when I got to your place. I filled your bowl up and you almost drank the whole thing before we set off on our run. Today it felt like we were running on Mars. Not that I’ve been to Mars but.... you get what I mean. OK ...it was probably slightly warmer than what Mars would’ve been 🤣. Anyways, it was crazy and messy and actually pretty fun! At one point it looked like you took cover under a tree! We totalled our way along the really splashy sidewalks and eventually made it home again. You’re so silly when it’s time to get back in the elevator, You stand halfway in and halfway out and stare at me like, “ I don’t want to go home yet!!” I’ll see you Thursday Bowie, don’t worry! We’ll go get our run on again! The Scoop: 1 poo, 4 pees.
DGR RUN OF THE DAY

Hi Bowie! Happy Thursday! What a BEAUTIFUL day today has turned out to be. I was excited to get out with you today because I knew we would hit the mileage I needed for my last run before my 50km Ultra on Saturday. We made several stops to admire the fall colours and even stumbled on the Acropolis of Elgin......? Odd to come across that weird landscape on our run hahah 🤣. I snapped a GORGEOUS photo of Bowie for her Mom today❤️ Enjoy your nap this afternoon - you earned it. The Scoop: 3 pees.
DISTANCE: 8.6 km DURATION: 1 hour 2 minutes
Good day Bowie! It was another great day for a run. Today we ran east in through New Brighton. We did a big loop, saw lots of birds, a couple squirrels and one very curious (and brave) white cat. It followed us for about a block which drove you crazy! I’m happy it decided to turn around or I think we may have had a standoff! You dipped your toes into a tree well full of water today but it didn’t look drink-worthy so I made sure to top up your water dish when we got back home. Have a great nap Bowie! The Scoop: 4 pees, 3 poos.

Oh Bowie it was wonderful to run you today! What a sweet pup you are! It’s such a treat to be able to run you in my neighbourhood. We had a brief situation with some KFC on the sidewalk 🤪.... but I was able to successfully wrangle it out of your mouth. Chicken bone crisis avoided!!! We stopped to take a quick selfie so mom could get a visual of who this new person was running her dog See you tomorrow!
DISTANCE: 11. 5 km . DURATION: 1 hour 13 minutes
Bowie, thanks for being patient as I got called away to run DGR Dog, Bouvier Zenna. I wanted to make this run a good one that included exploring my old running route in Fish Creek Park. Bowie really enjoyed the trail I picked that had a mix of river stops, paved pathway and grassy hills. I think she will sleep well tonight as we got an 11k in the books. This may be my last run for a bit as DGR Runner Nancy is back and lives in Bowie's neighbourhood. Big kisses to Bowie for being an excellent running partner! The Scoop: 4 pees, 1 poo.
DISTANCE: 7.6 km DURATION: 1 hour 9 minutes
Our run today smelled like summer. It seems everyone was out cutting their grass and the aroma was wonderful! We stuck to our normal neighbourhoods but at a slightly slower pace today. Bowie was very interested in the many squirrels and birds out and about on our paths. The Scoop: 5 pees, 1 poo.
DISTANCE: 7.8 km DURATION: 1 hour 17 minutes
Hot hot hot today!! Bowie and I decided that a mix of running and shade-walking was in order with today’s heat. We passed the pond, the lake, and the kiddo's water park today and boy did they all look inviting!! The scoop: Many pees (5) today and no poop.
DISTANCE: 6.7 km DURATION: 1 hour 10 minutes
Bowie had a nice evening walk in addition to my run with her today. A double does of Bowie, what more could I ask for. She also got to eat her dinner from her Kong. She is quite talented. Thanks for the twice the nice time together Bowie!

It was a sunny and warm summer run. Bowie was great as usual! The paths were quiet today with a few animal visitors but we did stop to taste the pond water and admire the ducks. The Scoop: 8 pees, 3 poos.
DISTANCE: 7.4 km DURATION: 1 hour 4 minutes
Endless love from Bowie! It was a great run this afternoon. Bowie was ready and fast today. A few birds and squirrels to visit but otherwise the paths were very quiet. I left Bowie with a new cold after-run beverage. The Scoop: 1 poop,6 pees.

Running with Bowie is in one word “effortless.” There are moments when I forget she is running at my side as she is so smooth and light on her toes. Today’s highlights included seeing a big inukshuk. The rain held off and the sun looked like it was trying to come out. We saw a Husky and Black Lab but we just held our course and focused on fresh air and exercise. Thanks sweet gal!
DISTANCE: 8.2 km DURATION: 58 minutes
Bowie, it’s date night so your mom said it was okay to bring my husband on this run. I have one more favour. Can you help me break in my new running shoes? Bowie seemed raring to go so we weaved in and out of the neighbourhood and by the lake. Bowie even got to sniff by the gopher holes. Thanks for joining our date. The Scoop: 4 pees, 2 poos,
DISTANCE: 7.75 km DURATION: 1:08:45
It was a beautiful day for a run As always, I was greeted with an excited kiss from Bowie. We harnessed up and off we went hitting both ponds again today. Lots of doggies out running and enjoying the milder weather!! Bowie prefers the paths to be all ours though. The Scoop: 3 pees and 1 poop.
DISTANCE: 7.31 km DURATION: 1:03:47
I was greeted with doggie kisses right at the door. Bowie is such a well behaved and friendly girl and I absolutely loved running and spending time with her! We took to the pond pathways straight away and covered 2 ponds in our time together. She definitely loves to smell and visit many different animals. We happened to cross paths with a rabbit, a squirrel, a mouse, and lots of birds today. I left Bowie enjoying a Kong full of her food. The scoop: 6 pees and no poops.
