Molson has been running with Dog Gone Running for over 3 years so it hard to believe this is his final run (for now) as his lucky mom will be taking him out. I have a feeling many of his runners will stop by for a visit or short run from time to time. Today, I brought along new DGR Runner Brooke and my dog Teddy. It was nice to have the diversion or I might have gotten teary and too sentimental during my run. Instead, it was business as usual. The temperature was ideal and we ran through back trails and made it to Glenmore Park. Molson had some brief off-leash playtime and was rewarded with a treat or two for his photo posing and good listening skills. He is such a dream to run and a great dog to show new runners the DGR ropes. He is definitely a seasoned veteran of Dog Gone Running and we will miss our Wednesday runs with his amazing Golden Retriever. The scoop: 1 poo and 2-3 pees. P.S. I had to take a photo of Molson's kitty today!

This morning was cold with the west wind. The result, my phone froze so I only have half the route captured. Regardless, Molson was a happy man. It was just perfect Golden weather and he only had to stop once to chew the snow off his pads. We visited with a tiny little dog who was fascinated by Molson and we stopped twice for quick visits. No poos but many pees.

It was a great day for rabbits in the dog park. We made sure we were well away from the road as a few other dogs had their chase instinct kick into gear and bolted across the road. Molson was happy to visit a crew of Labs and Poodles before finishing up along the reservoir with a pair of Corgis who had to look up high to get his attention. One poo and half a dozen pees.

Dogs, dogs, and more dogs this morning. Molson had great visits in the dog park with just about every breed you can image. Molson also had a field day with park balls but then nothing is better than chasing down another dog's ball and a football. With a little encouragement, we gave them back and everyone was happy. One poo and many pees.

Lots of attention for Molson this morning. It all started with a visit with a cute young lady and her mom walking their Lab. Not to be outdone, Molson strode right up and gave her a kiss. Her Lab just had to admire his style. That was followed up by a friendly lady who stopped and asked if she could hug Molson. And of course, he was only to happy to oblige. It was sunny and warm; finally a great early September day in October. One poo and many pees.

Everyone was out to visit Molson today. The dog park was a dog hive of activity. We met Molson’s favourite treat lady and her two dogs. They weren’t really interested in treats until Molson arrived then everyone was up for a snack. Molson got lots of attention from a young Black Lab who was literally and figuratively head over heels seeing Molson. No poos but many pees.

A Winter Wonderland except it is not winter. But Molson loved it as it is perfect Golden Retriever conditions and he had the advantage of four wheel drive along slippery paths and roads. We had a short visit with Marley and Michelle who were using the sidewalk to keep out of the deep snow. No poos but lots of pees.
