DGR RUN OF THE DAY # 2
DISTANCE: 8.5 km DURATION: 1 hour 37 minutes
Good morning pooches! Did you see that beautiful sunrise outside? Shadow, let’s go and see it. Driving over I couldn’t believe how amazing that sunrise was. It was probably one of the most incredible ones I have seen. I took a picture but this is the kind where you have to be there at the right moment. Shadow and Kopek got ready quickly and we went out to the trails. Shadow was a very happy puppy for the first half. He played and ran with his friend but then he quieted down a bit, dragging himself at the back... Hmmm, this is not the Shadow I know. So we slowed down and sure enough, Shadow got sick. I could see some little pieces of branches in there. Too much stick chewing. Shadow was a happy pup when he came back home, so this is a good news. The Girls went right after and as always. they had a little leisurely stroll. Today was an amazing day temperature wise as well. The Scoop: Shadow had 2 poops and many pees. The Girls all had a poo and few pees each.

Oh boy! I don’t even know how to start today’s blog, besides saying that our run was an awesome, blast! We had crazy fun!! 😃🐾 Today, we decided to hit the trails. Since I know Elvis can be a bit of mischievous kid at time, I usually do not free Elvis and Shadow at the same time. But today I did.. 🤣. And boy, did they play! Zoom zoom here, zoom zoom there.. they got me light headed with the speed they flew by me🤣. As expected, Elvis got a bit rambunctious, but Shadow “the elder” took matters in his own paws and fixed the problem very quickly 😁. Elvis came back to me with some “kaï kaï” sound, and I just said “too bad Elvis, your problem, not mine”.. 🤣😁. I secretly wish I had Shadow's super power to get through Elvis’s brain sometime. Those two ran so much that I wished they had GPS on them. I bet they went more than 10km. They came back home with such happy faces! Then it was girlies’ turn. They did just a little stroll in the neighbourhood but that made them very happy! The Scoop: Shadow had 2 poops and many pees. The girls all had a poo and few pees each 😃🐾.

Today was a special day as my favourites went for an afternoon run instead of their early morning one. They went to their groomer today so were all shaved with new little bandanas on. They looked like rock stars! Shadow was happy to see me and out we went. Elvis joined the party as well. We took the trails but made sure to keep Shadow on-leash to prevent him from jumping in the lake. Let’s try to keep the pooches clean for at least a day.🤣 While running, I had to re-assure many neighbours as I was new to them. Then it was the gals' turn. Today, we went the other way around the lake. Since Mocha was the only one not to have her poo, I let her loose for a bit. Well, Miss Mocha saw an opportunity to jump in the lake. i It was like a slow motion scene with me calling her and running before she reached to lake...but it was too late. It ended up with a big splash and a smiley Mocha 🤣🤣. Everyone had a poo but Mocha, as well as a few pees.

Oh hello my friends..😍🙏🏻🐾 So today is a special day, It is the dry and we are having beautiful summer weather but it is also the last day I will see you all for a while. Since my friends packed their bikinis and swimming suit for vacation time already, I decided to make it special. Since I feel great running, today Shadow and I pushed to the 8km run. That was super awesome, I think Shadow was very impressed with me today! 😃. As usual, we took many fun pictures. Then it was the gals' turn. I decided to make it special for them and we all went leash-free. Of course, Pinky wasn’t too sure if she wanted to go and Mocha-moo decided to jump in the lake. 😍. Great day for all of us. Kiddos. Shadow had 1 poop and few pees. Mocha and Java had a poop and one pee. Pinky had 2 pees.

Happy Thursday kiddos. Today, Shadow and daddy came to meet me in the parking lot as I arrived. Shadow was so ready to go. He is so cute with his little bandana. He actually commented about it but he also asked me if I took many pics of the gals with their new bows. I sadly admitted that I didn’t so Shadow suggested that today should be a gals' photo shoot day. How sweet of Shadow to think about that gals like this! 🥰. So we surprised the gals with a special day for them. They loved it! They made sure to show their best side.. 😍🤣 Shadow and I went trotting along some back trails and hills. The Gals were happy to walk to the bridge today. Everyone saw a few furry friends. Shadow had 2 poops and few pees. Mocha and Java had one poop and 2 pees. Pinky had only 2 pees.
DISTANCE: 8.26 km DURATION: 1:39:01
Oh oh, what happened today! I am sure the kiddos thought they were having a day off. Not so fast my friends! Mom and I had other plans in store 🤣. When they heard a knock at the door, the gang knew it was me. Shadow was happy to see me and was very eager to go. But looking at the sky and hearing the thunderstorm, we knew there could be rain so we went a bit faster today. There was more trot for me under Shadow's encouragement. Since it was a late afternoon run, we discovered all types of life in the neighbourhood. There were people playing tennis, new people and doggies I have never met before, and Shadow even thought he should go rescue all the kids swimming in the lake🤣. The Gals were eager to go even under the thundering sounds. Everyone had fun. Shadow and Java had a poop. Shadow had few pees, Mocha and Pinky had 1 pee only and Java had a pee.
DISTANCE: 8.51 km DURATION: 1:46:37
Oh what a welcome today; the entire gang came running outside to greet me today! Everyone was so excited. It was so much fun! Shadow was the first one to go as usual. I made sure he took his ball with him. He loves to carry it along. We took the same trails as yesterday. He caught me trotting along for a bit 😁. Shadow had that “hey! Are you allowed to mini trot? He made the "I may tell on you" face. 🤣 It is all good Shadow. The doctor said I can start mini-trotting but not too much 😁. Then we came back home via the hills. As always, Shadow told the gals he had a lot of fun. Now it was girlies' time. Yep, they are definitely summer gals. Pinky was peaking at 2 ladies over the bushes, while Java rolled like a kid in the tall grass. Mocha was Mocha - a quite and polite little lady 🥰 The Poop Scoop: everyone had a poop. Shadow had a few pees. Java had one pee. Mocha and Pinky had 2 pees.

Happy Monday my friends! It was another sunny day on the horizon. We will not complain about it. Hurray! Shadow and I decided to hit the trails right off the bat. Walking in that forest made us feel like we were in BC somewhere; it was almost like having mini vacation 😀. Shadow loves the trails as they are way cooler. Since we know our way around now - it is even more fun. We took the hills on the way back. Shadow ended up free ranging for almost the entire time. And since I brought a ball with me, he was in heaven. Then it was the gals' turn. Java wasn’t sure if she wanted to go today. Lol. With a little push from mom, we all went out. A little bird decided to walk part of the outing with us. I thought he was injured but no, he walked along us for few minutes and then took off. The Gals were very intrigued. The Poop Scoop: everyone had a poop. Shadow had few pees, Mocha and Pinky had 2 pees and Java had one pee.

Happy Friday kiddos! Ok, no worry Shadow, mom hasn’t ask for a walk tomorrow so you and the gals will enjoy a full weekend off! So today was a big party for Shadow. We met Yoshi’s mom and Shadow had her trained in no time to throw his toy for him.. 🤣. Shadow couldn’t have enough, running, jumping, barking, and jumping in the lake; it was a lot of fun for that boy. He tried to train me as well, but I was smart, I threw the ball downhill and Shadow had to run up. As you all may have guessed, it didn’t last that long 🤣🤣. Then it was the gals’ turn. They were ready to go. Sunshine energizes those gals. We walked up to the community centre for a little bit of freedom for Java as she loves going in the tall grass. We met a couple pooches and everyone was happy to see everyone! It was an awesome Friday for all of us. Shadow had 2 poops and many pees. Pinky and Mocha had 1 poop and 2 pees each. Java had one poop and one pee.

Well Aunt Fab, with all those running pictures of me today, I should qualify for the Zoom Zoom commercial.. don’t you think? Can you look into it for me? Yes, Shadow, I promise I will 😁. Since we decided to walk the hills today, Shadow was all happy and ran his little heart out. Picture here, pictures there; he was in great mood to show the best of himself! And today was also “rolling day.” I had to watch Shadow as he looked for a suspicious spot to roll in🤣. Then was the gals' turn. They were very happy to go as well. It was so funny to watch Java walk in high grass to do her business. Then, she too rolled like mad; she was so happy! And for some reason, Mocha-moo decided to roll too. I guess they all know they are going to the hair dresser on Wednesday so why not rolling in “stuff” until then. Shadow had 1 poop and a few pees. The gals had a poo each, Mocha had 2 pees, Java one pee, and Pinky had 2 pees.

Hello my dear furry friends! Hope you all had a good night. Not sure if you heard it or not, but the thunder gods were very busy last night. With lightning and thunder flying from all over, it was enough to make anyone feel uncomfortable. The good thing is that today was way cooler. Shadow was all happy about it and even happier to hit the neighbourhood trails. We had a lot of fun. Shadow got to meet many new furry friends. He also got few massages from the maintenance gentleman. Shadow loves him. Well, beside that one time where he gave Shadow a carrot as a treat! Shadow wasn’t impressed.. 🤣🤣He had that “hey, dude, I am not a rabbit” face on. 😂. Then it was the gals' turn. The 2 princesses (I don’t need to name them 😁) were on their chairs as usual. With a little bit of help from mom, they all went out. We took our time to get to the community centre and back. Shadow had one poo and multiple pees. Mocha and Java had a poop and 2 pees. Pinky had 2 pees only.

Good morning to my fav gang. It is another beautiful Monday! 😃👏. It looks like summer has finally arrived but let face it, not to complain but we didn’t have time to get used to any gradual temperature raising and bam, here we are at 30 degrees! Shadow felt the heat today. That boy is not a Mexico weather kind of guy! I promised him that tomorrow we will explore some shady trails around here. We will maybe do a tiny bit less mileage but Shadow will be happier! Shadow brought his fav toy with him but then.. oh Shadow! What happened? Where is your toy? So we had to head back to find Shadow's little treasure. Then it was the gals' turn. Those girls love the sunshine.. so no one complained today. Time to take some cool pics and head home. Shadow had 2 poops and few pees. Mocha and Pinky had 1 poop and a couple pees. Java had only 2 pees.
DISTANCE: 7.61 km DURATION: 1:21:00
Shadow and I had a great run around the lakes and then a bit of a detour down by the golf course. Shadow had a number of friends out for a run and got lots of hugs from the maintenance folks and a lady who owns another Portie. The other three all had a quick walk and everyone had a poo. Shadow stopped for at least 6 pees.

Oh happy rainy Saturday! The Kiddos was very happy to see me until.... oh wait! What are you doing here Aunt Fab? We didn’t get the memo. It is Saturday, it is pouring rain outside, and the house like delicious bacon and here we have to go exercise? Really?? Must be a mistake.. Mommy!! We want to talk to you!!! Oh no, Shadow, this is not a mistake. We are going for a nice long walk. With the pouring rain, Shadow tried to cut many corners and put his brakes on many times 😁. He then finally accepted and went on with the program. 😍 The Girls were excited to see me too, I doubted they watched the weather channel, but then when Shadow came back and they saw his wet little face, their mood changed. Nope, nope and nope. But 3 nopes weren't strong enough to win against mommy and my “yes” 😂. Shadow had 1 poo and a few pees. The Gals only had 1 pee each.

Happy Friday my furry friends! It was another wonderful day 🥰. Shadow was happy to go especially since he was allowed to take one of his favourite toy along. Today, he got to see many of his furry friends. We enjoyed a brisk walk and Shadow got to practice his “WalkieTrot” move 😃. We got to see so many birds too. There was a cute little robin on a street sign, little babies by the lakes, and a crane. We took many pictures but didn’t post them all. Shadow enjoyed some ball catching by the lake and I think he got his mojo back 🤣. The Gals were ready to go as soon as we arrived back home. Since my own pooch was in the car waiting for me, the gals were curious to see who that handsome looking dude (Malvyn) with that crooner voice was 🤣. The Girls enjoyed their walk as always. Shadow had 1 poop and few pees. Mocha and Pinky had 1 poop and 2 pees. Java only had one poo and 1 pee.
