DGR RUN OF THE DAY
DISTANCE: 5.9 km DURATION: 1 hour 2 minutes
Dashing through the snow with Kona & Winter! I think Winter was waiting for Santa Paws when I came to the door, because she could barely contain her excitement! She even left a few ‘cookies’ out for me on the welcome mat! We sprinted down the street, around the pond, and even saw some kiddos sledding down a hill! She was a very good and attentive girl and looked at me every time I said her name. Kona, the gentle giant, loved to cuddle while we walked. A light run seemed to be the best way to go and we kept pace together quite nicely. Her nose was very busy in the fresh snow as there were so many amazing new things to smell! She saw a Golden Doodle while we were out and was very careful not to pull me over. Such a polite lady! Both girls gave me plenty of kisses and went out to pee in the yard one more time before I left. The Scoop: Winter - 2 pees, 2 poops. Kona - 1 pee.

I can never pass up an opportunity to hang out with my favourite Bernedoodle Kona. We are close family friends, and not to brag, but he kinda loves me. And if there’s anything I’ve learned in life it’s to never pass up the opportunity to hang out with people (and dogs) that love you. Today was quadrupley special because I got to hang out with my sister, Juno and the dogs of White Oak Crescent as we romped through Edworthy and did a quick jaunt along the river. The scoop: Tammy and I argued about who’s poop was bigger - and I’m pretty sure I won. Bernedoodle poops are not to be trifled with. Thank goodness there was only one.

Hey Kona! Great to see you again! Kona and Juno go waaayy back in that they were both born at the same breeder's within a few days of each other! He's also neighbours with two other DGR runners, Carolyn and Sheri, so he and Juno occasionally get to hang out. Their first reunion away from the breeder's reminded me of the scene from Lion King when Simba and Nala reunite as teens. Well today, Juno was going to show Kona the ropes on being a DGR dog. But I was surprised to see that 1) Juno is a little out of shape; I guess I haven't been running her very much and 2) Kona is in great shape! He out-ran Juno with his long, lanky legs. Especially on the homestretch, when Juno had to lie down in the shade and refused to budge. Kona looked a little perplexed why his running partner was no longer wanting to run. Because he seems like he was born and built to run. Juno should know though, as she was there right around the time when he was born! Scoop: one poop and several pees.
