DGR RUN OF THE DAY #1
DISTANCE: 8.5 km DURATION: 1 hour 5 minutes
Well hello Charlie! It seems that you remember me and are keen to get out for your run on this fine, sunny 😎 Saturday! You truly are a miracle dog as I would never know that you had been hit by a car and were covered in casts. I did keep our outing to a light jog pace which you seemed to enjoy. I could tell you were getting a good workout by the increase in snow stops. Charlie would scoop snow in his mouth to hydrate. He is a super chill boy and was pleasant with the many dogs that crossed our path. I did wipe drool off his face and got a few good photos of that sweet Charlie grin. A dose of Charlie was a nice way to start my weekend off! No poops but 2 pees.

Resilience!!! The one word that describes this amazing Blue Piccardy Spaniel named Charley. This was the first DGR run with Charley since he was hit by a car. (see photo above) One would not suspect that he had months of recovery by the amount of enthusiasm and athleticism of this pup. He has some off-leash time with Teddy and there were some speedy games of chase. I then took them along the Elbow River pathway and they had such a nice steady pace. Once we returned to Sandy Beach. Teddy and Charley eagerly went into the river. I almost thought they would take a nap but Charley seemed ready to go up to the dog area of River Park to socialize with a pack being walked by a dog walking company. We even met a chocolate German Spaniel version of Charley. It was so wonderful to see sweet Charley and his huge progress. See you next week. The scoop: 4-5 pees only.
