Oh hello gang! Happy Monday my furry friend. Today Shadow and Java came to meet me in the driveway. Shadow got ready quickly and out we went. Today was a fairly slow run, I apologize Shadow, I couldn’t go any faster. My tummy wasn’t feeling that great 😳. Although we were not too fast, we ended up doing our regular mileage. The weather was awesome so we were very happy. We even took plenty of photos of Shadow in the tall grass. Then it was the gals' turn. Mocha came to meet me with her toy. Then we all went for our walk. The gals are always so well behaved. I love my little walks with them . Shadow had one poop and a few pees. The gals all had one poop. Mocha had 2 pees, so did Java. Pinky only had 1 pee.

Happy Friday kiddos. What a change of temperature from yesterday! Today, we had a bit of rain and wind; it was so refreshing! Shadow came to great me but I noticed he was happy but not as excited as usual. Our run was on the quiet side as well. He wasn’t as slow as yesterday but not as outgoing as usual. I also noticed that his poop was very dark, like almost black. I took a pic, picked it up and kept it to show Mommy. On our return, I informed Mommy and forwarded my poop picture in case any investigation was needed. Then it was time to take the gals out. Well, I know by now that Java doesn’t like the rain 🤣. She always need a little push to encourage her to go for her walk. Once out, the gals enjoyed their walk. We met one of the neighbour who gave them some treats They must have been very yummy as everyone sat pretty still to get some more. Shadow had 2 poops and few pees. The gals had one poop each. Java had one pee while Mocha and Pinky had 2 pees each.

Oh Baby Shadow, what is happening to you today? 😔Shadow was reluctant from the onset of the run. I had him off-leash on his favourite part of the run but it didn’t seems to make him happy. He was way behind; stopping and looking at me like “can we go back?” I thought the heat was the issue. He was panting, and very slow. I had to put him back on-leash as he was dragging himself so far back. I really thought he had a lazy day, and I apologize for my thoughts Shadow 😳. Then on the way back, Shadow started vomiting - 3 times with a lot of bile and grass. Poor little guy! So, we basically walked 3/4 of the outing. A quick text to mom to let her know and we walked back home. Th Gals weren’t very interested either. Pinky sat there and said “nope”? Is it something in the air? We managed to finish our little walk and home we went. Shadow had one poop and few pees, Pink and Mocha had one poop and 2 pees each. Java only had 2 pees.

Oh hello everyone! It was another gorgeous day for the pooches and me. Since mommy had to go, I went in to get Shadow ready. Shadow was sooooo excited; barking at me incessantly. He must have thought I had a ball (but I didn’t.. haha). Shadow played with some of his friends. It was so cute to watch them go at it for few minutes. Today, the boy was super eager to go and we went a full 8K. Since it was warmer than usual, Shadow was panting a bit, but this time, no lake adventure. Lol. Then it was the gals' turn. I thought about taking Shadow along with us but he clearly wanted to stay inside his cool home. I can’t blame the boy. lol. The gals were very eager as well.. I guess the sunshine motivate them. It was an uneventful walk, but fun still. Shadow had only few pees. The Gals had one poop each and few pees as well.

Hi everyone, Shadow here. Today, I am writing the blog. Fab made me, since I didn’t listen to her. I have to own it in public 😁. I was very happy to see Fab today and out we went. Looks like she felt great as we ran the entire loop.👏. She gave me cookies as always, and I loved it. All were good until a few minutes before the end. We met my friend Scotty, so I went to greet him, but instead of saying hello, I zoomed by him and lined up for the lake. Oh, I heard Aunt Fab saying “Shadow.. nooooo” but I went in anyway.. I was so proud of myself.. 😁🐾. I could hear Scotty mom giggling... Once back home, Fab decided to take me out with the gals again in the hopes of drying me a bit. She even took a picture of my sad face 😉. I hope she forgives me 😁. The Gals really enjoyed having me with them today. I played with Pinky a lot. Hope you still love me Aunt Fab. Shadow had a poop and few pees. Java and Pinky had a poop and 2 pees. Mocha had 2 pees.

The kids were easy as a Monday morning!! I know, I know, supposed to be like a Sunday morning but I noticed that Monday morning is their best day. It is a bit like New Year's resolutions.. they swear they will go to the gym every day and enjoy it. but then comes Friday and we can really feel the TGIF thing 😂. Shadow was very eager to go today. Since I feel better, we ran a bit more. We did some hill work and it was awesome. We also got our run in the tall grass picture finally. Then it was the gals' turn. They too were very eager to go. It was a fast walk, some sniffing around, eating grass, and time for a pictures The golden gals were happy. Shadow had a poo and many pees. The 3 gals had a poop each, Java one pee, Mocha 2 pees, and Pinky 2 pees as well.

Hmmm.. 🤔 what can we say on this wonderful Friday? Well, it wasn’t Speedo or bikini time for the gang today. Rain, wind, cold.. brrrrr! But hey, we can’t always ask for sun. Mother Nature needs rain as well. It was raining quite a bit when Shadow and I headed out, so we decided to stay on the main path. I tried to run a bit. Shadow was very patient with the old lady (me) but then we got to the hill. It is about 1.5K long. We started running again. It looks like if I run uphill, I feel fab-ulous! With a smile on my face, I ended up running more than half of the outing🙏🏻. This made my Friday for sure and Shadow’s as well as he got more treats 🤣. The Gals were up next. Needless to say, they know the weather without even looking outside.🤣Java and Mocha were the hardest to persuade. Once out, everyone was happy! Shadow had one poop and many pees. The ladies all pooped. Java had one pee. Mocha and Pinky had 2 pees each.

It was another beautiful day today! I love sunny days! How can we not? We do deserve it after the cold snap we had this winter! So, today the crew came to meet me in the driveway! Miss Java always sings along when I arrive. Shadow comes running to me, ready to go. This time, he knew I wasn’t lying when I said I had no ball so he went on running in the tall grass. He got to play a lot with Boomer, a Sheepadoodle. The two get along so well. I made a point to walk faster today so Shadow had to run more 😁. Then was the gals' turn. Java and Mocha weren't much interested at first. Yep, they are spa and magazines type of gals ( 👠👗🕶💄💋). But then when out, they were all happy to go for their little stroll. We got to see the crane as well as the most beautiful blue bird I ever got to see! It was wildlife day I would say. Shadow had a poop and many pees. All the gals had a poo. Java had 2 pees. Mocha had 2 as well and Pinky had one.

Today I needed more coffee because I forgot my phone at home so no tracking or photos. The one displayed is from the archives! We basically did the same route as yesterday. Shadow had no ball this morning, but it didn’t stop him from barking at me as he was sure I had one hidden in my pocket. He was so hilarious! Come on Aunt Fab, I know you hiding one in your jacket, come on! But then he realized that I had more so since he was free, he ran his little heart out in the tall grass. I could only see his tail. Where is my camera when I need it? Shadow was very lucky as he got to play with 5 doggies. Some he knew and some were new to him. Although I couldn’t run, Shadow had a blast running and frolicking on those trails. Then was the gals' turn. Pinky was the driver today and when she is in the mood, the 2 other ladies better to follow. We did our little walk; stopping here and there, smelling and eating grass, and just enjoying another awesome morning! Shadow had one poop and multiple pees. The gals all had a poop as well, Mocha had 3 pees. Java had 2 pees and Pinky had 2 pees as well.

Happy Tuesday kiddos. I am so glad to see you all as yesterday wasn’t the best day for me.😳Since doctors said no running for a week, here I am - having to be creative to make this day a very fun one for Shadow. I rose to this challenge as Shadow had a ball this morning. He played, played, barked, and played more. He gets so exited when he sees a ball. We actually came back home with a dead ball.. lol, Shadow broke it in two and there was no more squeaky sound! Since I couldn’t run, I thought we may go like 3 to 4 km, but we managed to do 5 and half. Shadow ran so much he probably did his usual mileage which is 7km. The Gals were happy to go as well. Pinky led the pack today. They stopped to sniff, eat grass, and take a couple of picture as well. Everyone had one poop. Shadow had multiple pees. Mocha and Java had 2 pees and Java had 3 pees.

Good morning gang! Shadow came to greet me in the parking lot today. I had to tell him we would play safe as with a 10 plus level, the air quality is awful. So we settled for 5K. It was a mix of run, walk, playing ball, and swimming session. Well, that last one wasn’t planned; that was entirely Shadow’s idea 🤣. Mommy was good sport when she saw him coming back wet. The only thing I can say is that Shadow had a blast with all those activities. He probably did 7K. 😊. Then was the gals' turn. Java was the first one in line; very eager to go. Pinky was on the go as well. She didn’t even try to stop, and sweet Mochy Moo is always the same; she loves to please. She is such sweet gal. Shadow had 2 poops and multiple pees. The gals had one poop each and a couple pees.
Shadow is happy that treats are back on the menu and The Girls would prefer to read their fav magazine

Happy Thursday friends! The sunshine is out and we are all very smiley! Thinking back at the winter we had, we sure deserve it. Today, we decided to go counterclockwise. For some reason, those trails are more difficult to run. Haha. Shadow had more stops as I guess it smells different when we run the other way! 😁. Shadow was happy with his run as treats are back on the menu. Hurray! Then was the gals' turn. Well, as you can see in the photos, none of them were up to it today. Java and Mochy Moo were lounging; reading their favourite magazine, while Pinky was hiding somewhere in the house. We finally gathered the gals and went out. Pinky was on the slow side; thinking that she should be home relaxing. I finally got the three dogs back on track and all went well! Shadow had 2 poops and few pees. The gals all had a poop and couple pees.

Oh hello gang! How are we doing today? Well, it was Java’s turn to greet me today with her brand new cone. Poor little gal, I always feel bad when I see any doggy wearing those. But hey, this is what the doctor prescribed so we have to follow orders... right Java? She sure looked awesome for a dog who had surgery the day before. Shadow got ready quickly and out the door we went. With no cougar sign around, we felt a bit more at ease 😁. We did our normal loop while enjoying a very early sunrise. We met a few doggies today, since there was no cougar sign and everyone was braver today. Then it was the gals' turn. Mommy said the vet allowed Java to go for a walk so this was nice. With Java walking beside me with that cone, I couldn’t stop thinking about that TV series Handmaiden's Tale 🤣. But let's forget about that and say that this Hollywood gal had a face-lift 😍. Shadow had one poo and a few pees. Mocha and Pinky had a poop and 2 pees each. Java only 1 pee.

Oh oh! What is happening in this neighbourhood? No one to be seen. How come when the weather is so beautiful? Well, it didn’t take any time for me to understand.. As I was driving to the Porties' home, I noticed some of those “cougar in the area” signs here and there. Shadow and I were the only one to brave the situation. Of course, we didn’t see the cougar, so we all were safe, but we made sure to run in the area near home. Then was the gals' turn. Since Java went for a little surgery, Shadow got to join the gals for the walk. Everyone enjoyed the sunshine. Mocha even took her favourite dinosaur toy along with her. Since the gals wanted to stop to graze a bit, Shadow joined the party..🤣 Shadow had one poop and few pees. Mocha had one poop and 2 pees, Pinky only has 2 pees.

Happy Friday kiddos! Yep, it was a short week for you this week. It was perfect for getting back in shape with 3 days of workouts and 2 days off before a full week. Perfect storm. So today Shadow couldn’t stop talking about yesterday's photoshoot. He loved it. He really thinks he is awesome looking (and yes he is 😍). He even stopped by those local sign and posed nearby; telling me that his photo would look great in there.. hint hint! Then, it was the golden gals' turn, Pinky wasn’t as enthusiastic as yesterday so our way out was very slow. She is so funny, when she wants to go, she is first, but if she doesn’t, she put the brakes on! We took some nice pics of the gals today, They too wanted their moment of fame! We were very lucky with the weather, as rain appeared later in the day. Shadow had one poo and multiple pees. Java and Mocha had a poop each and 2 pees. Pinky had 3 mini pees.
