Today was an interesting day! Not every day can be perfect, right guys? First up Archie, we started off smoothly. He seemed annoyed with his nose harness but I adjusted it and it seemed not to bother him too much. It was beautiful out, so that meant there were lots of dogs out. Archie, had a hard time with dogs passing him, even on the other side of the street. Honestly, he acted out of sorts. We made it through with no issues, the only causality was my hand from holding the collar. Next, Freckles! Let’s go girl!!! It is our first time with the black collar for her, and I did find it difficult to get her to go. With her regular gear, I give her a nudge and she keeps going, with this collar I have less control of her. She wasn’t happy with other pups today either! Maybe these two had too much Easter treats this weekend. See you tomorrow guys. Freckles had 2 poops, 8 pees. Archie had 1 poop, 6 pees.

Freckles and Archie remind me of strawberries! How can the two dogs with gnarliest bowel movements remind me of strawberries you may ask? Simple - their main floor washroom. I got into the habit of hand washing after our runs and the doggy parents have put a beautiful strawberry scented soap in the main floor washroom. Every time I smell it, it reminds me of these two furry creatures. Besides the strawberries, the runs were fairly uneventful. Archie outran Freckles today, Archie was so easy and kept an even pace. No big deal! Frecks, well - she would have been happy walking, so it took more effort to get her moving. We survived yet another windy Spring day. Thanks for the run fun! Archie had 1 poop, 3 pees. Freckles had 1 poop, 18 pees.

Spring means it’s time to water and aerate the grass! If you need help with this, Archie is your guy! He had me in stitches today with the amount of lawn watering and aeration he contributed to within the community🤣. Archie was just happy to be of assistance today; making sure the community looked it’s best. Thanks for all the laughs and support Archie! Freckles enjoyed her run today. We were having a great run together, laughing, rolling in the grass, and just sharing stories until four dogs set her off her pace and she just wasn’t happy running after that. It took us a few minutes to calm down, watch the birds playing in the pond, and a “girl to girl” pep talk then we were back in business; running and enjoying the warm sun again! Freckles, you’re a beautiful girl and you can be so frazzled by those other dogs, but you outshine them all girlfriend! The scoop: lots of watering from both and Freckles had one solid poop! Way to go guys👍! See you soon😘.

Freckles and Archie are such an adorable duo!!! At one time they were friends and now they live under the same roof disliking each other. Life’s too short guys, please make up so we can all run together! It was so fun back in the day. Separate is a survival technique of the present! Archie you're first, I am happy to say Archie’s running skills are getting better, slightly more focused. Freckles is Freckles! Actually she runs me, she decides where to go and when to stop, which I am totally ok with. Maybe I should pay her!😂😂 Both runs went well. The gremlin dog was out and about and both pups wanted him for their afternoon snack. Gremlin seems to want to play. That would be a cute picture if they got along. Windy weather today, but we survived. Have a great day guys. Freckles had 1 poop, 8 pees. Archie had 0 poops ,5 pees.

Great to meet you, Freckles & Archie! It was our first run together and it was a great one. The first leg was with Archie and boy is he quick! He and his family live in a beautiful community surrounded by parks and lakes, so we spent all our time wandering around and admiring the scenery. We did encounter some aggressive geese at one point, so we sprinted right past to make sure they wouldn't charge at us. I think Archie just wanted to make friends with them, but they weren't interested! Next up was Freckles! She may look small, but she is mighty and strong. I absolutely love her little ears and they way she pulls them back when she is focused on the road ahead. Both puppies were wonderful to run with and listened so well. I hope we get a chance to spend more time together in the future. Until we meet again! Freckles' Scoop: 1 poo, 2 pees. Archie's Scoop: 1 poo, 5 pees.

Happy Monday! You know how after a weekend sometimes you're refreshed and well sometimes you're not? That was the case today. Archie, Freckles, and I were all a little out to lunch today.😂 First, Archie and I hit the streets and all he cared about was what was on the ground, so he could roll in it. Then as he was doing his business, I got caught in the cross-fire🙈 Next up, Miss Freckles! She’s always a little quicker on the get go but I think that’s because she’s trying to get away from Archie as fast as she can!😜 After a while, we slowed down to a nice trot and made our way on back to the castle. Thanks for another delightful Legacy lallygag Archie and Freckles! 2 poos for Freckles, 1 for Archie, and several pees each. Cheers!

It’s the Archie and Freckles Show! The first part of the program was with Archie the Sniffer. There was a stretch of grass that he just couldn’t get enough of. Something was sure tantalizing his taste buds!😁 We we’re moving along nicely and out of the blue (no, I saw him walking) is Archie’s neighbour so of course, we had to stop for a hug and snuggle (Archie not me!😂) After that, we made our way back to the ranch for the lady of the second half - Miss Freckles! As you can see from one of the pictures, she was a touch tired today. Yawning and running, she soon had me doing it. What a pair!😊 That would never stop Freckles though, I think she has an “A” type personality just like the rest of us runners.😜 Anyways, we slowed down near the end and I knew Freckles was done because this time she took me back to the ranch. Thanks for yet another excellent adventure Archie and Freckles! 1 poo and several pees each. Cheers!

Happy days, Freckles! Two runs together in one week; this is fabulous. Although I do love your little brother Archie, I'm really looking forward to spending my whole hour with you! Freckles and I moseyed on our merry way, a little aimlessly through Legacy as Freckles' nose was guiding the way. Freckles took me along the ridge and down to this really awesome pathway along the river valley. It was beautiful! Once all the construction is done, this is going to make for a prime running spot. We eventually came to our first roadblock of construction, however; have no fear, Freckles' nose figured out a new route. We ran by the new high school, which was crazy! So many wing-nuts driving around! I had a good laugh because I too was one of those crazy 16 years olds driving like a maniac, although 12 years ago, it still feels like those days were yesterday! As a reminisced about my "glory" days, Freckles took me on a little adventure in Waldon before it was time for us to start making our way back. Freckles and I had a little debate; she insisted we keep going. However, as much as I would love to run all day with you girl, I have to get you home for some treats! That was a seller; we were full steam ahead with only one thing on the mind, cooooookies! Thanks for a great run Miss Freckles. You truly are the best. See you again soon! The scoop: 2 poops, 6 pees.

HAPPY MONDAY!😶 I got to see my friends in Legacy again today, I was so very pleased.😊 Archie and I hit the road first but before we could leave I had to say hello to my gal pal Freckles! Okay Archie, let’s hit it! It didn’t take long for this handsome fella to get out of his lead.... we only made it to the end of the driveway😂 Too Cute! Oh well, I eventually realized the problem and we happily trotted our way through the hood. Archie wasn’t in a hurry today, but that’s okay because neither was Freckles. When it was her turn, she made it clear it was her way or the highway, It must be a Monday thing. No worries, I’m here for you. We meandered about and eventually made our way back to where it all began. Thanks for such a warm welcome and the fantastic adventure Archie and Freckles! 2 poos for Frecks; 1 poo for Archie, and several pees each. Cheers!

My friend Freckles must have had a busy week because she wasn’t pressed for time today! No problem. I’m right there with ya sister.😆 Don’t get me wrong, in true Freckles fashion, we left the gates sprinting and just like that it was over. Freckles needed a moment (or 5😂). We then carried on and I was thinking to myself.. What a great way to end the week! I’m with the ever so Fabulous Freckles and I get a nice easy flat run. 😶 OF COURSE, Freckles lured me to the trails where we had to climb a rather steep hill and I agreed.🤪 But after that, we were both a little breathless and took our time heading back to the crib. Thanks for being so fabulous today Freckles! Have a great weekend! 2 poos (1 runny) and many pees today. CHEERS!

Happy Thursday, Freckles & Archie! I am so happy to see you guys. It's been a minute since I last saw you, Miss Freckles and I now finally got to meet your cute little brother. Little being the operative word, he's enormous! Archie, you're first bud, show me around your hood! I apologize in advance, Archie's collar definitely won our battle today, I could not figure it out. But it worked so we moseyed on our way through Legacy. Archie is a big sniffer and easily distracted by almost everything. Paper blowing in the wind was the most peculiar thing to him today; he just watched as the trash danced along the road beside us. He was mesmerized. He turns out to be very vocal around other pups, so we kept our distance and allowed him to yell hello from across the street. I too get very excited when I see other dogs, so I understand. After our little stroll, it was Freckles turn. I seriously love this sweet girl, and I don't think there is anything better than when you pull up at their house to see Freckles little head looking at you through the window. With lots of love from both of them, we all had a very successful outing today full of lots of doggie business. Archie peed and pooped and Freckles poop and won the pee challenge with 5 pees in a fairly short little window! I was impressed that she still had anything left inside her! All in all, great time with these lovely pups. Well worth the drive down to Montana. See you guys again soon!

An Archie/Freckles day! When I arrived the wind began to blow and snow was falling.... what a difference from yesterday. Archie, you're up first. Believe it or not, I have never run Arch only walked him so today was a first. His nose leash was on and off, around his leg. How? I have no idea, Archie is still playful like a pup, but he is getting smart like a dog.... a magician with the leash. Freckles was next. The poor girl was a tired pup today. She was energetic for about a km and then she just wanted to sniff and chill out. The weather is confusing this girl; it is tough on the energy level. No need for car wash today. See you in a week or so. The treat truck is back next week!😊😘 Archie had 4 pees, no poops. Freckles had 1 poop, 6 pees.

Today, Freckles stuck her tongue out to all of her B grade runners, because today she has the A grade.... Audra!😂😂😂How things have change with this lovely girl in the last two years, from stubborn 90 percent of the time, to now only about 10 percent. She is such a happy lovable puppy, with an edge to her which I love. Never a boring moment. Today, she for some unknown reason, had a desire to go in the car wash! Strange I know, but true. Was she hot? Was she dirty? Hot dirty dog needs car wash! Oh Frecks, it isn’t safe for dogs, but she tried her hardest to get me to let her in there. Splish Splash! Freckles is taking a bath. Great run today! Only a few short stops, and you were really into it. 1 poop, 8 pees.

Woo Woo! It’s an Archie and Freckles day, YAY!😊 First Archie (a.k.a “ Houdini” ) and I went out and wandered about the neighbourhood. Every time I looked a Archie, his lead was in weird positions on his head.😂 At times, he was sporting a headband, sometimes he had a black beard.... I’m not sure what was going on but he’s getting good at taking it off! Clearly, I didn’t put it on correctly🤷🏿♀️. He’s so funny! Anyways, we did our thing and then headed on back for Freckles. She was in the mood to move!😁 The weather had warmed up and Frecks was soaking it all in. The two of us happily trotted about with a little speed work tucked in there whenever we saw another pooch! Oh, my friend hadn’t changed at all and I love it! Freckles had no desire to head back to the ranch but I have my ways😜! Thanks for another excellent adventure Archie and Freckles! See you soon! 2 poos for Frecks; 1 poo for Archie, and many pees each. Cheers!

When you can’t have ice cream, have a snow cone 🍧! Both of these kids wanted snow cones today, so that’s what we had! After all it’s Friday Fun Day! Archie and Freckles always greet me with excitement to go out. It might be because they wanted to hang out at their usual watering holes or is it the Spring air? Either way, I enjoy our time together! By the way Audra, I asked Freckles if I was her favourite DGR runner and I received kisses -that’s gotta mean I’m definitely “maybe” her fav!🤣🐶💕. The scoop on these two: Archie had a lot of watering to do and Freckles had just as much watering and a poop.
