DGR RUN OF THE DAY #1
DISTANCE: 8.4 km DURATION: 1 hour 4 minutes
Sweet Lyla and I had a beautiful fall run today. It made me forget about the oncoming winter for the hour! We started off on a great pace but had to slow down here and there around the middle mark, for Lyla to get her breathe back, and then she set a great, steady pace for the last couple of kms. Once again, she picked up a little stick to take with her. Lyla’s calm, gentle presence was a breath of fresh air, and I was pretty much smiling the whole way. And her little doggy smile told me she was having a good time too. The Scoop: 1 pee.
DGR RUN OF THE DAY #4
DISTANCE: 4.2 km DURATION: 32 minutes
I was pretty excited to meet this beautiful Australian Shepherd/Retriever X named Lyla today for her trial Dog Gone Running (DGR) run. One word sums up this gal: "Lovely." She also has a sweet sister named Magpie who got some belly rubs and my approval for taking out her sister. Lyla thought our run was all about fun and games so she took ahold of the leash to lead the way. Who is running who? Soon, she released the leash and settled into a steady pace and we headed to check out the activity at the park down the hill. She is so mild mannered and is not bothered by other dogs. She is enthusiastic about squirrels so she showed me how she can sprint when she sees one. We had a nice fall evening outing and even got to see our first Halloween decoration and it is not even October. I like how the photo almost looks like there is a ghost. We look forward to more outings with lovely Lyla! The Scoop: no poops or pees.
