Molson was a happy guy this morning. It took us a bit to get started as he was really focused on a tummy scratch and a back rub before we got out the door. We had a great outing up above the north reservoir then back across the causeway before we headed around the golf course. One poo and 5 pees.

What a brilliantly lovely day for a walk! Who knew it would involve some medical testing. To Molson’s people I can assure you there is no need to get his eyes checked in the near term as he passed a vision test with flying colours 😄!!. Barely released from the leash and way way in the distance a bright green ball was spotted, and not by me. Molson took off and took possession of the, what turned out to be, tennis ball. But for a few requests to drop it (so I could throw it). he kept the ball with him all the way until it reached the wood floor at home 😄. He was one proud puppy today with his find. Then, on the way back at the same ball sighting location the girls from the school were playing lacrosse with, you guessed it - tennis balls. Maybe your next outing will be just as profitable. Molson has 2 poops and many pees today.

Today, we headed to the dog park at Sandy Beach. Molson got lots of visits with a family of Goldens plus a big variety for other dogs out for a run. We also met up with a friendly Pitty on the way home. It was a perfect day for both of us. It was cool enough for Molson and warm enough for me. No poos but many pees.

I was so excited for this day!! I hadn’t seen Molson in a really long time and was looking forward to taking him out😄. He was waiting like always with his head right on the floor and then slightly raised to see the activity outside. When I got in the house, we frolicked like I had seen him last week. He rolled over and played shy while I snapped a pic. Then like old times, we made our way to Glenmore Park and wandered around checking to see if anything had changed. The park . has not much changed much but the same can’t be said for the neighborhood. There was lots of activity. I think a nice time was had by all and we enjoyed getting reacquainted. Molson had a poop and about 5 pees.

It was a beautiful morning and Molson was happy to be out on the pathways. We met up with two sets of Black Labs who were equally excited by the morning. There is no snow left so Molson did a couple of grass rolls to get comfortable, No poops and many pees.

Today, Molson was peaking out the front window awaiting my arrival! I got inside and he instantly grabbed a toy frisbee from his toy box and came to say hello. We decided to take it with us on our adventure and played a bit of fetch along the way. The temperature is getting warmer out and Molson being the clever boy that he is found all the shade he could! We had a great day out enjoying the sun. The scoop: 1 poo, 7 pees. Thanks for the great afternoon!

Molson and I changed it up this morning with a run to the dog park north of the power station. We met up with a St. Bernard and his half Poodle buddies. Lots of chases there and then we were on our way. We met up with a couple of young ladies from the Girls School who thought he was great. One poo and many pees.

Today I met Molson. As I got inside to say hi, he brought me a toy and I knew we were going to get along great. We headed out towards the reservoir pathway and we’re having such a good time, we decided to go all the way down to the off-leash park and back along the ridge. He played with my Lab Collie named Jack, walked by my girlfriend, and only stole one of my gloves once. Because of the beautiful weather, we extended our walk and ended up being out for an hour and a half enjoying the sun. The scoop: 1 poo, 7 pees. Thanks Molson.

Molson and I did the upper path this morning and spent a little time visiting a friendly German Shepherd who was also out running the pathway. Pretty much all the snow was gone so the best Molson could do was a roll in the grass and a good scratch to finish up. One poo and many pees.

Molson wasn’t sure what he wanted to do first - make some snow angels or have a few snow ball tosses?....let’s do both he decided!! What another golden day for adventures outside! Molson greeted me at the door with his favourite ball and was eager for a good stroll. The scoop: Molson peed a lot and had 1 poop. Thank you Molson for brightening my day💕.

It is great to be back with Molson. It was a fine sunny morning so we needed to be safe on the ice patches and tried to keep both Molson and me going in a nice straight line instead of on our backsides. We stopped on the way to visit a friendly Border Collie who ran circles around Molson before settling down for a visit. One poo and many pees.

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.
