DGR RUN OF THE DAY #3
DISTANCE: 7.5 km DURATION: 1 hour 17 minutes
Welcome Back to the NW Bo Bo😍. I am very thankful you brought the warm weather with you too‼️ The mailman that we always meet had shorts on today. Wow, that is brave. Today’s run is a true ’Snelting’ Day. Snows-A-Melting means The Nose-is-A-Sniffing. At the 40 minute mark, I gave in and walked for a bit so Bowie could sniff everything. I lost track but I think we stopped close to 40 times to enjoy our ’Snelting’ Day🤣 All those tantalizing new smells coming to the surface. Pure intrigue, right Bowie.?! Always such a great time with this gal. See you Wednesday🐾 . The Scoop: tons of pees, 2 poos.

Happy Wednesday Bowie! I was pretty shocked at the temperature this morning when I woke up. It’s really quite amazing. We are currently living in one of the coldest cities on the planet!??? You were SO happy to see me when I came in today. We bundled up and headed out on a little adventure with no plan. I was totally on my game today.... and forgot my running shoes. Good thing I have loads of practice running up and down sledding hills with my kids in my Sorels 🤣 Off we went, clumping along. Haha! When we got back, we both had frosty eyelashes. We took the stairs for a few rounds then fooled around with some treats in her Kong. I think I need to get my dog Betty one of these fabulous toys! See you tomorrow Bowie. The Scoop: 3 pees.

Happy Tuesday Bowie! Well it was a lot colder outside than I thought it was.... so to break my chill and warm up, we took off like a shot! It was snowing lightly when we left and started to snow heavier as we got home. That made for slippery pathways!! I was pretty pumped to get out today and try out my new Altras. Oh they are like clouds on my feet ️(Torin 4 - Running Room online, $100!!) <— in case you need shoes Jessie! Despite the cold, it was very beautiful today. The weather is shifting however so we will need to bundle up over the next few days I think. As we headed towards home, you got playful again with your leash. I love seeing these little sparkly sides of your personality. See you tomorrow Bowie. The Scoop: 2 pees, 2 poos.

Feliz Navidad Bowie. With that salutation, Bowie gave me a kiss. After some time chatting & getting towels & treats ready for our post run, it was time to venture outside. I needed my Icebug running shoes today and I always leave them outside because of the cleats. When I opened the door Bowie peeked out and was hesitant to go outside. At first, I thought it may be because of my bright yellow running shoes. No, that was not it. Bowie, I promise we will have fun. Within 3 steps, Bowie was loving the snow. I think she did not want to leave the toasty comforts of home at first. We did loops of Dalhousie. On our first one, the spunky monkey came out in Bowie. She grab the leash and started to jump around. Oh, I see, it is play-time. At the half-way point, we stopped in at ’Casa Michelle’ to warm our paws up. Actual outside time 1 hour & 10 minutes. Henry (my husband) was home and very happy to meet Bowie. Time to head out for out second loop and finish with a bit more play-time in the park. Bowie was pretty focused on finding a bunny. She would go for full city blocks with her nose down in the snow; tracking the scent of a rabbit. Time to hit ’tu casa’. See you next week Bowie🐾. The Scoop: 7 pees, 1 poo.

DISTANCE: 9.48 km DURATION: 1 hour 7 minutes
It was another great outing with the Bowster! There was a lot to stop and take photos of today. The snow looked like somebody sprayed glitter on it and we stuck to all places in the sun. I love this weather for running. It’s cold but comfortable and I could honestly run for hours when it’s like this outside. Bowie kept dipping her nose in the snow and eating it which was super cute. When we got home, I noticed she was out of water so I topped her up before I left. Enjoy your runs next week Bowie, up and grandma and grandpa's house! The Scoop: 3 pees, 1 poo.

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.

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.
DISTANCE: 9.3 km DURATION: 1 hour 3 minutes
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.
