Marley and I had lots of company this morning. My son Kieran joined us and we all visited with lots of other dogs, runners, and walkers along the reservoir. Marley enjoyed a few of his favourite back rolls and rubs on the grass. All in all, it was a great day to be out!

It was a beautiful run in the snow with Marley today. He was pleased to have more company as my friend Bill joined us on the outing. I ran Marley but Bill tagged a long and we got this nice photo of them together. Marley put on a good show and enjoyed a few stops to dig his nose in what is hopefully our last snowfall. No poops but many pees.

Cool but perfect Marley weather. He greeted me with a big smile as he came around the corner and was ready to roll this morning. We explored the forest then around the north side of the reservoir before heading for a treat. One poo and many pees.

You would think it was spring! Marley was a happy guy and took every chance to roll, snow dive, and pretty much celebrate the morning. We took to the dog park and then out to the reservoir to enjoy the sun. Two poos and 4 pees.

It must be spring! Marley took every chance to find some snow and do his favourite barrel roll and dug his muzzle on the wet snow. Nothing like spring to get a guy excited about the great weather to come. It was also Bernese Mountain Dog morning as Marley got to visit with three. Everyone is out for the day. One poo and many pees.

What a pleasant surprise. I saw Marley in the window but then when opening the door, who comes out but Molson! Both boys were happy to go out for a run and I couldn’t leave Molson so I took the liberty to take him with us (no charge). It was just great fun to have both of them. Great photo of the boys at the reservoir. One poo and many pees for Marley and many pees for Molson.

A very brisk day but Marley and I hung in there. My phone froze up with 10 minutes to go so no second picture or the final bits of our outing. Not one other dog out today so a big bravo to Marley who was a happy guy the whole way. One poo and many pees.

It was a great morning with Marley who bravely met a young and goofy Black Lab pup who thought Marley was just the coolest guy. For Marley, it was kind of a tolerance exercise but he was. as always, a perfect gentleman. He also met a young lady who gave him lots of pats - so much so that he just flopped and wanted more! One poo and many pees.

It was a very brisk morning but Marley was totally game to head out and enjoy the morning. His first plan was a full face-plant in the snow followed by his traditional full body roll. He is definitely a winter loving dog. A couple of stops to chew off some snow and away we went. One poo and many pees.

It wouldn't be a proper Friday run if Marley didn't drag you someplace exciting. Marley had clear expectations for our route. Me: Hey, let's turn left? Marley: Not a chance, lady. Marley dug in all paws until I understood that we were going straight. Alright sir, I am but a servant today to your every wish. Me: Should we head right, Marley? Marley: Not a chance, lady. We're going to hide under this spruce tree. I can't argue with that one either. The wind couldn't reach us under there. But it did feel a little odd to be stashed away because, well, now what? Marley, we're outside to run! I had to override my friend on that decision. We found a few paths to run down and a few other cozy groves to keep us from the cold. We eventually burst into North Glenmore Park to see the sun trying to poke through the clouds. But by that time, we needed to turn our noses towards home. The last, best place that Marley could have dragged me today. Have a good, warm weekend, bud. The scoop: 2 poops, 7 pees.

It was a beautiful snowy morning and while it was brisk, we had a great run. We saw lots of other dogs in a big variety of boots and clothing, and ways of keeping warm. Marley was nicely insulated as was an English Sheepdog who looked much warmer than his doggie buddies. One poo and many pees.

If you look carefully, you can see thoughts forming in Marley's mind. "If you give me a treat, I'll get up." Or, "I bet you can't itch your back as I can." Or, "I know, did you see how fast that Spaniel was running? That's crazy." Yes, it's a typical Friday outing with the king of pre-weekend fun. Marley takes few things seriously, always stops for others to give him a scratch, and never fails to take in the full wonder of North Glenmore Park. No sniff was left to chance; no roll left undone. He's the epitome of living life (and every run) to its fullest. Today was no different. While it looks like we tackled a simple out and back run, in reality, we laughed, stretched, and enjoyed each other's company thoroughly. Have a wonderful weekend, Marley. The scoop: 1 poop, far too many markings to count.

It was a brisk outing this a.m. but Marley was happy to lead the way. We had a couple of stops to chew the snow out from his paws but the rest of the morning went great. Not one other dog on our trail but Marley alert me to a pair of coyotes who were watching carefully from the edge of the reservoir. Both of them were curious but headed off on their own way. One poo and three pees this morning.

It was a nice morning for a run; cool enough for Marley and warm enough for me. We headed out on the dog path and had a quick visit with Molson and Lindsay before heading around the reservoir. We met up with two Black Labs who were much too interested in rolling in the snow to visit. But then Marley himself was only too happy to do the same. One poo and many pees.

It was a big breezy morning and Marley and I ebbed and flowed with the wind. There was still time for a couple of Marley rolls to cool off and flip a little snow in the air. there was no sign of the coyote that was spotted recently in the area. We stopped and chased with a couple of Black Labs. Marley was also surprised by a noisy little doggy but we continued on our way. Two poops and many pees.
