DGR RUN OF THE DAY #3
DISTANCE: 6.8 km DURATION: 56 minutes
Stylin’ and Profilin’ with Freckles (read in your worst fake Italian accent). So here we have Freckles in her new beautiful new coat where she is meeting both function and fashion. She is rocking the cat...er...dog walk unlike her runner who is clearly only going for function. A blue face mask with a green toque = why must he clash like that? (Ok, end of accent). Well we lucked out as once the wind died off 10 minutes into our run it was really quite pleasant out today. With the sun shining too that hit of Vitamin D was also very welcome. Freckles ran really well today although I think I tired her out as the last kilometre or so was a little slower and she was quick to go lay down as soon as we got her home. The boots went on real easy today as Freckles is quite cooperative about putting them on. The Scoop 1 poop and quite a few pees so I stopped marking them after the meaningful ones.
DGR RUN OF THE DAY #2
DISTANCE: 7.5 km DURATION: 1 hour 2 minutes
Going Dora mode with Freckles So today Freckles and I got our explorer on and went looking for new trails. Because it was just the two of us, we had time to go looking for a path I have seen but never was able to figure out where it started. It turned out to be quite the nice little path. It had some little ponds, benches, and an open space to really run through. Freckles ran really well and never seemed to tire out today. She picked up extra energy towards the end which was unexpected and a good push for myself. The Scoop: 2 poops and 8 pees. She seemed to want to mark our route so we can find it again next time.

Today was Day 3 in a row with Lady Freckles and we had so much fun again. Today, we had no plan to start until we saw our first pumpkin and then it turned into a pumpkin hunt. We found some in excellent locations so those are our pictured ones. We found a couple others that were in rough shape which Freckles wanted to try to eat so we had to move along without a picture. Can’t wait to see her again tomorrow. The Scoop: 1 poop and 5 pees.
DGR RUN OF THE DAY
DISTANCE 6.9 km DURATION: 1 hour 3 minutes
I had so much fun today meeting and then running with Archie and Freckles. We formed an instant friendship as Archie was snuggling up to my leg so tight I actually had a hard time getting out the door. We explored mostly around home for our run today as I wanted learn their personalities and any visual cues with them. Archie was able to run for 40 minutes before I brought him home to take Freckles out. Freckles did really well running compared to what I was led to believe; it must be the perfect fall weather. They both run so dignified compared to my pup that I was calling them Sir Archie and Lady Freckles. I can’t wait to see them again in a couple of days. I did lower the nose piece on the collar just for pictures after giving a really good look around so I hope that’s ok. 1 poop and 2 pees for Freckles and only pees for Archie but I did lose track on the number.
DISTANCE: 7.1 km DURATION: 1 hour 12 minutes
It was a great run with both Archie and Freckles today. With the help of YouTube, Archie and I had a successful harness experience and that really helped with our run. We ran the ridge and both ponds. Then it was Freckles' turn and she had spunk today! The Scoop: Archie had 9 pees no poop. Freckles had 1 pee and 1 poop.
DISTANCE: 5.7 km DURATION: 1 hour 15 minutes
It was nice to meet Archie the big ball of energy today. He was out the door first and ready to go! We stuck to all the paths in the area and checked out all the bushes and shrubs on the way. After 40 minutes out and about, we headed back for Freckles' turn. Freckles and I went for a slow 20 minute exploration of the paths in the other direction. The Scoop: Archie had 20+ pee and no poop. Freckles had 1 pee and 1 poop.
DISTANCE: 5.8 km DURATION: 1 our 11 minutes
It was very nice to meet Ms. Freckles today. I was greeted with excited kisses at the door and Freckles was ready to get outside. We explored a few paths, green spaces and water fountains. The Scoop: 4 pees, 1 poo.
DISTANCE: 6.0 km DURATION: 1 hour 21 minutes
Freckles loved the temperature today, and so did I. We started to get rained on at the end, Miss Freckles had her nose turned up to Mother Nature... We did our regular stop at the pet store and visited the ladies. See you tomorrow Frecks! The Scoop: 27 pees, 2 poos.
DISTANCE: 5.3 km DURATION: 1 hour
Freckles and Archie were a delight today. They both did excellently, considering the crazy heat. I believe I did this doggy log incorrectly, I logged it as a check in and not a walk. Today, I forced Frecks to walk, because it was just too hot to run, Archie was walking, so we just went with it. See them tomorrow! Enjoy this summer day! The Scoop: 16 pees, 1 poo.
DISTANCE: 4.39 km DURATION: 1:00:13
Attack of the pink dinosaur! Was he flying through the house when we were outside? Landing! Right on Freckles back.... she found that very funny having a pink dinosaur on her back! Today, just like the last few times we have been out, the weather was HOT! These two girls don’t perform well in the heat!!! Let’s walk it out girl! So we did! Speed and distance weren’t a priority for us today - just simply an outdoor adventure. Like always, there was plenty of time for rolls in the grass and shade breaks. Enjoy your AC Miss Freckles. See you next week. 2 poops, 14 pees.
DISTANCE: 5.22 km DURATION: 1:09:50
Well Miss Freckles, we ended up at the Bone and Biscuit once again. You tried to visit the boys at the barber shop. Do you need a shave? Then we entertained the girls at the pet store. Freckles wanted to shoplift some fun chew toys, but we convinced her that wasn’t a great idea... we don’t need the police coming Frecks. A paw cuffed Pitbull will not look good in the neighbourhood. When we left the B and B, Frecks immediately wanted to go back for more love and attention. We continued our outing with traditional rolls and sniffs. It was a great day for both of us. Thanks girl! 1 poop, 19 pee.
DISTANCE: 5.13 km DURATION: 1:14:49
How did your Freckles adventure go today, you might ask! Well, we had a break in the grass, and another and another and then a roll and then a nap, and then another break. We even had a break at the Bone and Biscuit where we met the lovely store cashier, who loved Miss Freckles and spoiled her with treats. It is hot out there today and Freckles and I are truly Canadian... we like the cool running weather, this heat has got to go! That is why today we went with the flow and stopped when we needed to; simply to make sure this pup didn’t overheat. Enjoy your AC, Miss Freckles - until next week. 1 poop, 6 pees.

Good Morning Archie! Nice to see you again. You are full of energy! Our day started much different than yesterday. It seemed with the cooler weather everyone (and their dog) were out for a walk. Arch and I started the same way as yesterday, but this time we dodged some other dogs. We stopped and I kept him close. A quick correction on the collar got his attention and we patiently waited until we could continue. Archie stopped to sniff around and I looked into the sky to evaluate when the rain would come. I suddenly felt something wet spraying my leg. I guess I was standing a little too close to Archie and my leg ended up being hit with some secondary backsplash pee lol. We kept avoiding oncoming dogs, so our run was full of some stopping and walking to make sure everyone was safe! When we got back to the house Archie went right to the water dish to rehydrate! He then laid by the front door unsure if he wanted to run again, or take a nap. Thanks for another great outing Arch! lots of pees, no poops.
Hi Freckles! You are such a sweet girl. Once I opened the gate, Freckles was much slower going down the stairs this morning. When we left the house. there were no 400m sprints, just a fast paced walk! We made a giant loop. We passed a couple of dogs and their owners. Freckles kept trying to chew grass. If she wasn't trying to eat it, she would be rolling around in it to cool down. The cloud overhead was still coming in, I think we got back to the house in good time! Freckles too enjoyed some water and then decided she wanted to sit on the dog bed and relax for a few. I happily sat on the ground, petting her. Then upstairs she went so Archie could come out! Nice to see you again Miss Freckles! 1poop, 4 pees.

Hi Archie!! You’re so big and handsome! It was such a beautiful day to get out for a run, and Archie was stoked to get outside. After getting the collar all sorted, we headed off on our adventure. Archie kept a good pace for the majority of our run. Each time I stopped to try and take a picture Archie would rub his nose against my legs in an attempt to remove the nose harness. I had to giggle at his efforts 😂. We ran close to the trees, trying to avoid some of the nearby construction! On the return home Archie’s nose kicked into high sniff. The flowers had received his attention. Once we got back to the house, Archie gulped water. I laughed at him. Each time he lifted his head, the water poured out of his jowls 😅. Silly boy! I think we enjoyed one another’s company. I’ll see you tomorrow! Time to get Miss freckles out now! No poops, lots of pees.

Hello Sir Archie and Miss Freckles, I want to start off by saying whenever I have these two in my daily schedule, I look forward to our outing. Archie, you're up first. Today was a hard day for Archie. He was excited because of all the people and animals out enjoying the weather. Archie wants the neighbourhood to himself. Freckles, your turn girl! And roll, and roll again. She sure does like her back scratched on the fresh cut grass. We headed to many shady grassy areas for a break today. Running? No way - this dog is chilling today. Freckles has so much personality; she really makes me chuckle. I can figure out what she is thinking. Sometimes, she thinks just like me🤣🐾🐾 Archie had 5 pees, no poops. Freckles had 3 poops, 3 pees.
