I am not exactly sure what was going on when Mona, Reilly, and I first started. Actually I don’t think they did either!😂 There was some confusion as there was sniffing and a lot of leash tangling going on. But once we (they) got things sorted, the consensus was that we were headed to the river. I guess sometimes you just have to let the poopers figure things out for themselves.😜 Happily, we trotted on down to the drink for a refreshing dip and a little fun! Next, we moved along to the pooch park; hobnobbing with our friends Kip and the gang. Then one last dip before heading on back to the abode. Thanks for the good times Mona and Reilly! 2 poos for Reilly; 1 poo for Mona, and plenty of pees each. Cheers!

Today was the day that I was going to be in charge! I had a plan and we were going to stick with it. How long do you think that lasted?!?😂 As soon as Mona and Reilly get together, they decide who’s in charge and today it was Mona’s turn. She had Reilly’s best interest at heart though. Being that we were having another fabulously warm day Mona made sure that the route she chose had many water stops as to keep her BFF well hydrated.😊 We hit some trails, went for a swim (they did not me) and frolicked about in the wide open fields of Scenic Acres. By this time, we were all a little sweaty and had to make that one last craptastic climb back up to where we started. Needless to say, it was a slow climb.😬 Thanks for letting me hang with you today ladies! 2 poos for Reilly; 1 poo for Mona, and many pees each. Cheers!

WHAT A DAY!🤪 First, my alarm clocks slept in (my dog and cat) so this meant I was late for a very important date with my two favourite gal pals Mona and Reilly. When the three of us finally got our poop together, serious running was not a high priority for these ladies today.😬 So with that in mind, we headed over to the pond for some swimming and gopher hunting. Mona and Reilly were having so much fun that I just couldn’t drag them away. Who am I to ruin a party?!?!! Next, we hit the back forty for some hill training and by the time we got back to the streets these ladies were tired. 👍🏿 Our jog slowly turned into a walk and we eventually made it back to the homestead. In conclusion, I have to say these gals have me well trained!😆 Thanks for another fantabulous outing ladies! 2 poos and many pees each. Cheers!

Because I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning, a run (I use this term loosely) with my besties Mona and Reilly is just what I needed to snap out of it! The gals lifted my spirits quickly and reminded me that life is good.😊 Once we made it through the first meadow and took a shortcut to the second, my friends found themselves a puddle and almost drank it dry! I knew right then and there where we were headed - to the stinky pond for a refreshing dip!😬 As soon as it was in sight, these two bolted right for it. That’s the fastest I’ve seen them move in a while😂 After that fun, we made our way back to where it all began. Thanks for a most pleasurable outing ladies! Thanks for getting me out of my funk. 2 poos for Reilly, 1 poo for Mona, and many pees each. CHEERS!

OH girls, girls just a wanna have...... FUN!🎶🎶 Need I say more?🥳 Well, I suppose I should. Mona and Reilly hijacked this run instantly and I surrendered almost immediately.😂 My friends had their own ideas about our outing today so I just went along for moral support and snacks! She was a warm one out so the ladies decided that a swim was definitely on the list after I watched them do a little hunting. I assume nothing was caught because this didn’t last long.😊 Mona and Reilly weren’t really into running so in my infinite wisdom (no comment), I coerced these hooligans down into the coulee. If we weren’t going for speed, we might as well hit some hills! The ladies were pleased. After that, we headed back up to the streets and homeward bound we went. Thanks for another entertaining adventure ladies! 2 poos for Reilly, 1 poo for Mona, and several pees each. CHEERS!

Good morning ladies!😊 Can we please keep things family friendly today? PG rated, not so dirty😂. Today Mona and Reilly decided they wanted to go do some water sports so down to the river we headed. With great enthusiasm, I might add! Another gorgeous day out so what else were we suppose to do? With many river stops along the way, these two were sure hamming it up. They had a few admirers and preformed quite nicely. After a while, I could tell these two partiers pooped themselves out and so we headed on back up the mountain to the cool comforts of home. Thanks for keeping it clean today ladies! Good time had by all! 2 poos for Mona; 1 poo for Reilly, and many pees each. Cheers!

I thought I was in for a trip down to the river but Mona and Reilly had their own ideas. Maybe on such a warm day the gals thought it was a little too far to go? So in a roundabout way, we made it down to the pond. One of their favourite party spots! I’m sure Mona was hoping to catch a warm snack! Even Reilly got in on that action but as far as I know the only dead animal they came across was the one they both took turns rolling in.😳(so sorry). I tried to get the gals into the water to wash some of the stink off but apparently stinky friends stick together!😂 With my nose plugged, we headed on back to where we started, and on the way to Mona’s I had to keep the windows down. Seriously, it was nasty!🤢 Thanks for another unforgettable outing ladies! 2 poos for Reilly; 1 poo for Mona, and many pees each. Cheers!

First can we have a moment of silence for those who sacrificed themselves (2 mice and a breakfast sandwich) to make Reilly and Mona’s adventure complete.😳 Okay! Why should today be any different?!???? The gals spent the first 10 minutes or so checking things out thoroughly! Then, while preserving their energy we nonchalantly made our way to the party spot of the day. Did I mention this is where Mona hoovered up her first mouse and Reilly scored herself a fresh breakfast sandwich. Clearly, Reilly prefers the North American diet!😂 Next I watched as these ladies burnt up all their energy and Mona again slurping up another sacrificial mouse!😶 By this time my friends were hot, tired, and full and in no hurry to get back to the abode. So we perused about until making it back to where it all began. Thanks for such a wonderful Thursday outing ladies! 2 poos and plenty of pees each. Cheers!

I’m guessing Mona and Reilly thought today was the holiday!😬 We had some directional issues. Oh don’t get me wrong, we all knew which way we wanted to go it; it was just all in different directions.😂 That was fun! After our meeting, I got these ladies headed one way and the rain play-day got on its way! My friends did their own thing this morning. They even had themselves some fresh road kill but this time I had to walk away. I could feel my stomach starting to turn.😳 After the gals had their snack, we made our way to the pond for a refreshing dip
(cause they were so hot🤷🏿♀️). We had some more free- range fun and then we headed on back to where it all began. Thanks for another entertaining escapade Mona and Reilly! 2 poos for Reilly; 1 poo for Mona, and many pees each. Cheers!

Where do I begin.... Reilly and Mona started off with their usual search and explore mode. Getting nowhere fast, I took it upon myself to direct these ladies to one of their favourite party places. They partied so hard that poor Reilly lost some of her breakfast😳. I’ve been there sunshine😜. Anyhow, we slowed things down a bit to make sure she was feeling ok and continued on. The gals explored away. Then I heard Mona growl and flip a big fat juicy mouse (it was alive) and proceed to bite it in half! Tracy screamed like a little girl and proceeded to lose her breakfast!🤮 Mona, you finally grossed me out! I had to share this wonderful news so I called Ruth. Thanks for listening!😬 After I got it together we made our way back to the comforts of home. Thanks for another unforgettable adventure Ladies! I may never eat meat again. 2 poos for Reilly; 1 poo for Mona (the killer) and several pees each. CHEERS!

I surrender!😂 I am clearly not the leader of this pack and that’s just fine by me. Mona and Reilly had me in stitches from the get go. These two ladies put on a comedy show for a few pedestrians before they decided where the party was going to happen today!🤪 Next stop - the river! Unsure of the detour, Mona hesitantly rounded the corners with some encouragement from her BFF😊 When she realized where we were, the pace quickened, but only until my friends accomplished what they came for. A little cool-down for Mona and some stick toss for Reilly. Well, we tried but again Mona didn’t want that to happen😂🤷🏿♀️. Oh well, maybe next time. We perused about; stopping at every available water party place we could find before heading back up to the comforts of home. Thanks for the entertainment ladies! 3 poos for Reilly; 1 poo for Mona, and a plethora of pees each. Cheers!

These ladies gave me a warm welcome back!😊 We headed out quite quickly and I was grinning with pain but soon Mona and Reilly were up to their usual antics and all was good again (in my world🤪) The gals couldn’t wait to hit the river so that got top priority today! Reilly tried to play stick toss but our friend Mona didn’t want any part of it so she quickly ended our game😂🤷🏿♀️ Reilly didn’t seem to mind. She’s just happy to hang with her BFF! Next we toured around making our way to the off-leash park and partied with some friends. A couple more refreshing dips and we casually made our way back to where it all began. Thanks for taking it easy on me today ladies! Pleasure as always! 2 poos for Reilly; 1 poo for Mona, and many pees each. Cheers! Looking forward to our next adventure.

Today I finally got to meet Reilly! Mona was really excited to see her friend. We had a great time exploring the neighbourhood and the girls must have tried at least half a dozen squirrels - big hunters! These two are such pals, they loved sniffing the parks together, and just seemed to enjoy each other's company. Reilly is just as sweet as Mona and would often look back at me with a beautiful smile. Of course, the only time she smiled like a goof was when I was trying to take a picture! Neither of them wanted the run to end, so we finished with some backyard time so they could play with each other. Even then, Mona and I had to go in first to lure Reilly in because she was sitting in the yard refusing to come in! That was the most attitude I'd seen from her the whole run! What a good-natured girl! Once inside, she got lots of pets before I took Mona home. I think the run was a success because she was so tired she could hardly keep her eyes open on the drive! I had a blast with these two sweethearts today, and I hope they did to! Thanks for the run girls! Enjoy your nap Mona! 1 poop each and MANY pees each.

Today's run with Mona was split into two halves - the first was all about making some tracks and running, and the second half was all about sniffing literally everything she saw. We found some beautiful paths through trees and around ponds that were full of song birds. The wind had died down in time for our run, and both of us were panting in no time. Mona likes sniffing around front yards and schools, so for the second sniffing half we weaved around Cougar Ridge following her nose. I brought more treats today which she seemed to like, although they didn't taste as good as grass and snow! She's a very calm little dog to run, so not much else happened. I love watching her think about which way to go, and she loved the ability to follow her nose! Thanks for the run Mona! See you next week! 1 poop and MANY pees.

Today, I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Mona! What a sweetheart! She's a lot smaller than I was expecting, and is such a gentle dog to run! First things first, we HAD to go see the ski jump at COP for a selfie, and then Mona took me around to some spots in her neighbourhood. I'm not sure if they were her favourite spots - we weaved around and went back and forth a bit, but I know she was a pretty happy pupper wherever we went! She can keep a pretty good pace when she wants to run, but today she mostly wanted to sniff around on all the snowbanks and trees - fair enough! We still had some pretty good running stretches that hopefully tuckered her out a little. She liked running through the parks and checking out all the school yards, but wasn't the biggest fan of the hard-packed snow and only went on it to pee. She also really liked coming back home for treats! I apparently did not take enough for our hour and after she ate them (I only had two on me), she kept looking up for more. When we got home, we had lots of pets and more treats in her house, and I made sure she had a bunch of water for the day. She's such a sweetie, I can't wait until next time! Thanks Mona! 1 poop and MANY pees.
