I don’t get to see Freckles and Archie very often so whenever the chance comes up, I take it!😊 These little poopers always give me a warm welcome which in itself is worth the drive. Archie and I headed out first and he went straight for my truck! I’m not sure but I think he would have rather just gone for a ride.😬 Next up Freckles! She too headed for my truck but it wasn’t to get in she was feeling a little peckish so I gladly helped her out. My friend was happy to get out and run. We hit some of the same routes as Archie and I did earlier, Freckles knew she could smell where he had been and left those areas quickly!😂 Feeling the love!😜 Thanks for hanging with me today Freckles and Archie! Looking forward to our next visit! 2 poos for Freckles; 1 poo for Archie, and several pees each. Cheers!

Hey Archie, did know the Royal Baby was named after you? Megan and Harry chose Archie! The first time I head the announcement I thought of Archie the dog. Isn’t that crazy? Am I turning into a dog loving crazy old lady? Maybe? But how could you not love that face. Looks so innocent... but he got some spice in him too... probably similar to the royal one. We headed out for a long time today, our jog turned into a stroll, with a bunch of grass breaks... Archie had a grand old time so I just went with it. Next, I picked up Miss Freckles. We started off with a run, for one block... then she stopped dropped and rolled. She never has liked the heat or the cold. The neighbour calls her Princess Freckles, so today we have double royalty on our hands. The Prince and Princess! Freckles had 1 poop, 5 pees. Archie had 2 poops, 11 pees.

Hey guys, it sure is smoky out there! Archie was up first! As soon as we got outside, I realized that it was almost creepy out. There were no construction noises, no people walking their dogs, or children... it was just us. Almost like the Walking Dead! Where is everyone? We kept it nice and short; simply because it isn’t good for me or Archie to be out there today. Next up - Miss Freckles. By the time I got to her, the smoke started to bother my asthma, so I grabbed my puffer, and breathed through that... it seemed to work. Freckles really wanted to run, but I had to explain to her that today is not about the running, it is simply about the bio break! She soon understood. I wonder if smoke bothers dogs eyes and lungs too. It must right? We all survived and the pups are home safe and sound! Archie had 6 pees, no poops. Freckles had 1 poop, 4 pees.

Freckles is an awesome dog! She came at maximum speed running towards me like a little Tasmanian Devil when I arrived at her place... You're here! You're here! She thought to herself.... Well girl, your house has beautiful central air, and today it is a sizzler outside. Of course, she didn’t care at the time! We were off and Freckles was in full sprint right off the start. That only last .5 of a km then, the stop, drop, and rolls began. And actually, they never stopped! We ran through the sprinkler of the pond; enjoying the cool water against our sizzling heads. We spent most of our outing on the grass so this girl's feet wouldn't burn from the pavement. We had fun. We didn’t run much but we enjoyed each other’s company. Thanks girl! 2 poop, 18 pees, and 7 rolls in the grass.

Freckles was thrilled to know that we were going outside today in this beautiful weather. She called out to me as soon as I walked into her house. Archie was also looking forward to the run as he sat at the front door waiting for me to put his gear on. Once outside, Archie was a hyper boy; lunging and barking at every dog, which was unlike yesterday’s run. Freckles was happy to go out and started off at full speed, but in the heat today she quickly ran out of gas. Freckles and I had a wonderful bonding time at the pond and watched the birds and kids playing. The scoop: 1 poop for each dog and plenty of pee breaks.

What are your favourite things about today? Well for Archie his favourite things were rolling in the grass and chasing flies! Freckles' favourites are sprinting and watering every single tree we can find! 🐶 What a gorgeous day with both my friends. I’m happy to report Archie’s running behaviour was on point. He ran beside me and was courteous to others on the pathway while Freckles was happy watering trees and taking it easy today. We all worked hard in the sun today! The scoop: Archie had several pees but no poop. Freckles watered almost every tree in the neighbourhood and had one poop!

Freckles’ favourite game today was...Stop, Drop and Roll!😂🐶. We enjoyed the gorgeous day running throughout Freckles' favourite spots in the neighbourhood and when she had enough of running it was time to play her favourite game! She had no problems dropping mid-run for a quick roll in the grass! Freckles was such a happy, exhausted girl by the time we finished our day together! I look forward to our next outing! The scoop: 2 good poops, 1 runny poop, and lots of pee breaks!

I’ve been looking forward to this run all week! Archie and Freckles always greet me with such enthusiasm. I LOVE IT!!!😃 First up Archie! We headed out and in minutes Mr. Houdini had his lead wrapped around his head like an 80’s workout accessory.😂 That was the game today. Archie’s tummy wasn’t doing especially well so we took it easy and toured the hood’ for about 4km and went back to the house. Freckles, you're next! 😊 This little pumpkin was off like lightning but soon the heat caught up with her so we slowed things down. There was a fella working and Frecks went up to him and gave him a sniff (you know where) DIRTY!😂 We all had a good chuckle and then my friend and I made our way back to the crib. Thanks for such a great welcome today you little poopers! 3 poos for Archie (liquid); 2 poos for Freckles (1 runny) and several pees each. Cheers!

Well Archie, our amazing dog jog was on pause on RK! We managed around four km today. We took it easy with lots of sniff breaks, and kept our eyes on the neighbourhood rabbit. I dropped Archie off, and grabbed Freckles who was so excited to get out on this sun shining day! That rabbit drove both these dogs crazy, it was like he was hopping around trying to make them crazy. I tried to get a good picture of him but no luck. Then I realized my RK paused!!! Oh no! I started it up and decided to take Freckles around the block so we would get some sort of map. There he was the rabbit. It was like he knew our next move! Thanks for the great mid- day outing! Freckles had 2 poops, 5 pees .Archie had 1 loose poop, 4 pees.

Hello Freckles. It was yet another warm welcome to my day. Thanks girl! No sign of Archie, so we just headed out. This girl was in a great mood today; much different from the last time I saw her. Back to yourself, I love it. We toured the neighbourhood; taking it easy because my body is tired from these races the last two weeks. It hit me about 2km in. We can still have fun even if we don’t go fast!!! Right Frecks! And that we did. A light walk/jog seemed to work well for us today. The weather was chilly when we were out there, but the wind died down nicely. We really had an enjoyable afternoon together which finished off with a treat. See you tomorrow! 2 poop, 8 pees.

Archie was feeling like “King of the Castle” 👑 as he sat on the rocks overlooking his neighbourhood, while Freckles was feeling like a Queen 👑 as she had me wait til she finished eating before going out for our run! 😂. It was a gorgeous day for a run. I was the one slowing these two pups down today. Hopefully, next time I’ll be in better form for these athletes! The scoop: both dogs each had one good poop and several pees!

Both Archie and Freckles were startled by the enormous snowball (with a marker flag on top)! Archie jumped back and barked at the snowball when he first noticed it and Freckles perked up her ears, stopped dead in her tracks, and stared the snowball down. Once Freckles realized it was just a snowball, she was interested in hanging out and off we went. Both dogs were curious and intrigued with the spotlight in the park! Lol. Again both dogs were curious and fixated on it. We had to investigate further. Upon arriving, both dogs did sniff the light and proceeded to mark their territory . These two dogs keep me laughing! Both Archie and Freckles wanted to chase whatever was hiding in the tall grass and shrubs, I felt that keeping them motivated and focused on their runs was my challenge today. Maybe that was their ploy!. Freckles wanted to play in the pond. In fact, she wanted to swim today more than run. All in all, it was another great day. The Scoop: Archie had 1 runny poop and several pees. Freckles had 2 runny poops and several pees.

Spring tobogganing without the sled....that’s what was on Archie’s mind today! Every hill with snow found Archie, like a kid, sliding down on his back! 🤣. I’m so proud of him today, he wasn’t set off by the neighbourhood Huskies yelling at him. He was cool as a cucumber 🥒. Oh Freckles, aka Princess, was excited for her outing today too and I could hear her from outside; she was so happy! Once it was her turn to go though, she decided she MUST eat right now!😂 It was my turn to wait for her now! She was such a good girl today, so well mannered. The scoop: both dogs had one poop each and lots of pee breaks!

Well, Monday with the kids (Archie and Freckles) started off on a crazy foot, both dogs definitely had Spring fever 😂. Archie wanted to play hide and seek instead of putting on his collar! Once he realized he wasn’t going outside naked, he reluctantly put on the collar 😜 We had a great run once we made it outside and even watched the geese nearby without a care in the world! Freckles was also hyper and happy to get outside as she flew out of her penned area towards the front door! The race was on once outside! She was such a good girl with her manners and her positive energy! I am glad the kids had fun today. They are always funny characters who make me laugh! The Scoop: Archie had a million pees and Freckles had nearly as many pees and 1 poop!

I met Archie and Freckles for the first time today and it was such a pleasure! Archie was extremely excited to have someone at the door but had to overcome an internal conflict between playing a game of chase and getting his collar on to go for a run. Eventually, I was able to trap Archie in the front entry way and get his collar on - from there he was very compliant but still very playful. I’ve never been to Legacy so I immediately ran us into a dead end where Archie decided to have some fun rolling in the long grass. We greeted a few construction workers and geese on our way. Freckles was ready to go! I was careful not to run into the same dead end as I had with Archie. I must say, Freckles is VERY skilled at knocking the collar slip off his nose (or maybe I’m just not very skilled at putting it on). Thanks for the great run and tour of your community, Archie and Freckles! The scoop: Archie - 6 pees, 1 poop. Freckles - 1 pee, 1 poop.
