What a gorgeous day for a run!!! Juno was a little hesitant at first but once we got to the park, she was in the game! It was so much fun to see ducks on the water, other pups playing ball, and birds singing! We really enjoyed the sunshine today! It was so pretty to see the rays of sun sparkle on the water!!! Great times and I can't wait to go again! 1 poop, 4 pees.

I woke up excited to go run with Juno today for two reasons. We would get another practice at the Edworthy Hill and my dog Jack would meet my other awesome running partner! They met and got along great! I hoped Jack could learn a few things about running from Juno. We head straight south and Juno only tried to coax me into giving her a treat once! We powered down the hill crossing the train tracks (luckily 5 minutes before a long one passed through) and timed it perfectly on the way back to hit the hill running. The Scoop: Juno has 1 poo, 3 pees. We had a great day today and we all three can’t wait till that hill is a walk in the park for us. Until next week!

It was such an amazing run with Juno today! Both of us had great stamina this morning and we were enjoying the gorgeous weather so much that we lost track of time. We saw lots of huge geese on the way as well as squirrels, and birds. Overall, the natural surroundings were gorgeous! There is much beauty around us!! We are so blessed to enjoy it all! I have to admit Juno did much better than I on that Edworthy hill! She is so fit! What a great time and I can't wait to get out with Juno again! 1 poop, 4 pees.

Juno and I met today for the first time. As warned, she tried to lie down in the grass to get a couple extra treats but thankfully I knew her trick. I saved the treats for the 2nd half of the run. She was very good on the leash; staying so close to my side (actually forced me to shorten it so it didn’t tangle when she ran!) We went down the big Edworthy hill and along the river pathway for a bit, then turned back to face the uphill jaunt. Full speed ahead, we conquered the hill and took a tour of the neighbourhood back home. 1 squirrel spotting, 1 poo, and 6 pees later we said goodbye. Thanks for the run Juno!

Juno and I had quite an adventure and we had a ton of fun together!! I think this was most adventurous run/skate so far!!! We headed to the usual trail but it got quite icy in places. We did our best to maneuver around it. Then half-way through, I thought we should just go back but then at the same time it would have been same distance going back as getting thru the rest of the ice and I thought we would just go back the other way- through Edworthy Park. Anyways, it was tricky in places but Juno was very patient! At one point when I was holding to the metal railing, Juno looks at me and if saying "What's the problem, just use your claws!!" And I'm like " I'm afraid to say Juno, I've got none!!"😭😜 We had a good laugh!! Juno had no trouble at all. I had to take my time but we stayed safe! We saw very big geese by the lake! They were noisy!! We also saw a squirrel eating a nut at Edworthy. It was so cute! It was very adventurous morning and we had a fantastic time!!! Cant wait to go again! 1 poop and 5 pees.

I had a great time with Juno!!! I didn't realize how much ice is on our favourite trail!!! We found a way around it! It was so pretty! We did some great climbs today! The sun was shining and the weather was good for us! Juno absolutely loves exploring in the wild! What a great time this morning! 1 poop, 4 pees.

Morning Juno! This is Gabi, and she is DGR's newest Dog Runner! I told Gabi that Juno F often starts her runs by finding a perfect lounging spot in the snow, eyeing up my treat pocket. But lo and behold, Juno decided to prove me wrong! We had a gorgeous run through the 'hood, down the Sarcee Corridor, and it wasn't until halfway into our run she showed us her characteristic stall tactic. Sometimes you can expect the unexpected, but other times the unexpected surprises you! It was a perfect introduction to dog running, although the 'Juno Team' did not demonstrate very many challenges of the job. Thanks for a great morning run ladies! Scoop: one poop and 5-6 pees.

What a great morning for a run! I joined Juno, Tammy, and her furry family member who is also named Juno! She showed me all the best places to run around the neighbourhood and where the views were the nicest. Running with pals is always the best. The sun was shining and Juno loved to run through the snow; showing off her beautiful coat. It was a great, relaxing run in the morning and a great start to the day! Written by Gabi

Pure Joy! There were so many reasons to be happy on this run with Juno. #1) Juno is such an easy-going gal. I did not need to coax her with treats to get her to run with me into the snowy woods. #2) We ran through Douglas Fir Trail and it was so peaceful out. We were the only souls on this trail. #3) It was downright balmy outside (compared to our recent deep freeze). #4) I have a soft spot for Huskies so spending time with Juno was such a treat! #5) I got to visit with Juno's mom post-run and see the rest of the fur family. I can't believe how big Buck has gotten! The Scoop: 1 poo and 4 pees. Juno did get some post-run treats because she was such a doll!

G-g-g-oood m-m-mor-ning J-ju-no! That was me greeting my neighbour through chattering teeth. Unlike this former sled dog, I am not a huge fan of running in frigid weather. She demonstrated that this was nothing. In fact, she nose-dived into the snow to show that it wasn't that cold at all for her. I wasn't buying it. With frozen fingers, I fished out some treats from my pocket so that we could get moving. This went on for about 15 minutes. But once Juno got some calories in her, she fell into her groove and we hit that steady pace of an Arctic sled dog. With blood pumping, I warmed up and came to realize, (like I always do when I have the pleasure of running a DGR dog; especially ones like lovely Juno) what a pleasure it is to run with a nice run buddy, no matter what the weather! Thanks Juno!! Scoop: two poops and a few pees.

Juno and I began our run by picking up the other Juno. I knew this would be a challenge. The more I said "Juno", I think the more that both dogs just assumed it was the other Juno I was referring to, so both dogs ended up ignoring me. Great! Good thing they were both so well-behaved. The dogs ran really well together today, and Husky Juno only laid down one time. The dogs even synced strides and were side by side leading the way. Right foot, left foot, right foot, left foot. It was chilly this morning, but I was still sweating. By the end of our adventure, my eyelashes were decorated with frost. I think it's my new look. Juno F.: 1 poo, many pees. Juno N.: 0 poos, 3 pees.

Well it's still cold out but you just gotta keep on moving to stay warm! Juno and I headed the opposite direction from the Douglas Fir Trail toward Edworthy Park. There was mist visible from the river as surprisingly, it's still running and not fully frozen... a magnificent view indeed! We haven't gone this direction for a while as there was a long stretch on ice but it's much better now! We adored the beautiful view of downtown as we were running along the river and also a large cargo train went by! There was so much to look at! On the way back, Juno was sniffing and staring into the woods, and then started sprinting... I didn't see anything but maybe there was some animal around... you never know.. Great times today! 1 poop and 4 pees.

Juno's mom and I decided the forecast looked a bit better for this afternoon so Juno and I headed out for a later run today. The sun was shining but it still felt crispy cold! We went to our favourite trail and found it very enjoyable. It's shielded so not windy and the stairs sure helped to keep us warm! By the time we climbed up the trail, we were sweating!! Such a good workout! Juno would stop at times and dig the treasures out of the snow! We adored some beautiful ice-covered nature along the way as shown in the pics! Great times as always! 1 poop and 4 pees.

It was such a beautiful day for a run! We did struggle a bit with energy when on sidewalks, but once we got to the trails we took off!! I'm just like Juno - I like scenic routes much more than just sidewalks! So many fun things to see and discover on trails! We saw squirrels, birds, snow, ice, other pups, and trains!! Such a great time today! Did some great climbs as usual! Thank you Juno for such a great time! 2 poops and 4 pees.

Such a great time with Juno this morning! It was a bit chilly but once we got going up and down those stairs on the Douglas Fir Trail, we got warm pretty fast! It was such a beautiful sunny morning. Juno loves sniffing around the dry bushes on the trail so we stop to enjoy the under the snow discoveries. We did some great climbs today! It was such a great workout! We had an amazing view of downtown and the train going along the river. Even though it was daylight, we saw part of the moon - so pretty! Amazing time today and I can't wait to go again! Scoop: 2 poops and 3 pees.

Juno and I had a great run/walk today. We saw tons of squirrels leaping and scurrying across a canopy of leafless tree branches. We heard a volley of chirps between the birds. We also came across another pack of dogs (the same pack twice actually) whom Juno greeted kindly. For some reason, Juno wanted to lay down a lot today. Only when we weren't running the trail since there's not many good places to lay there. I persuaded her to get up with treats and TLC which did the trick. For the most part, I decided to stick to the trail so more progress could be made. Plus - the terrain gives a killer work out. Good job Juno! 1 poo, 5 pees,
