I was looking forward to meeting Polaris & Kobe today. All those fun pictures that Tracy posts, I knew I was in for a treat. After entering their domain and letting them feel comfortable with me, we headed out on this cool day. These two were so well behaved, it was like having Doggy School University Graduates with me. I got lots of Kobe smiles and little dances. Polaris informed me today was ’Carry your Ball All the Way Day.’ I must say I was rather impressed with Polaris’s concentration and
willpower. As we walked over to Crowfoot Shopping Centre, I looked to my left and there was a coyote strolling along the new pathway. Girls, time to change direction! We turned out doing a nice big loop and finished up back at home as the wind picked up and the temperature seemed to have dropped. It was a true pleasure having your Gals' company today. The Doggy Business Report: Kobe had 3 pees and 1 poop. Polaris has 3 pees, 1 good poop and 1 very runny. I let Polaris' human know.

Today, Polaris and Kobe’s run was all about me! Thats right I finally said it😬 This is my last run with these two precious pooches for a while so I put my plan into motion on the drive over😜 I knew if we tossed old blue around (Polaris’ ball) that would tire them out quickly and we would slow down. Then I would get to spend a little longer with these crazy kids and that makes Tracy very happy!😁 It worked perfectly and they didn’t suspect a thing! Anyways, on our way back we stopped for a couple more tosses and called it quits, even though I didn’t want too.... Thanks for such a great day Polaris and Kobe! This is not good-bye, just see you later. 1 poo for Polaris; none for Kobe, and many pees each. Cheers! You will be missed.😢

These two crazy kids must have had one heck of a weekend because the need for speed faded fast. Especially after about the fifth toss of the ball! Polaris worked hard trying to run after her favourite blue bouncy ball while Kobe sat on the sidelines in the shade.😁 After our short-lived game, Kobe rejoined us and the three of us happily trotted around the neighbourhood until we finally made it back home. I could tell Polaris and Kobe were pooped because when we came up to the house there was a huge rabbit and they looked at it and carried on. My job was a success! Well done Tracy!😂🥳 Thanks for another delightful adventure Polaris and Kobe! 1 poo and many pees each. Cheers!

So, today I thought I’d try something different with these two crazy kids. We headed out and found a field to play some fetch before the serious running began! Polaris was pleased and Kobe tried his best to play along with her!😊 But when the game was over, they were done. Are you ready to call it quits and go back home for a nap😂? Clearly, not my best decision, I guess we need to save the party until later 🤷🏿♀️ We carried on and yes, my friend Kobe was a little less than impressed but went along anyways. We casually made our way around the pond and back to the castle. Thanks for keeping it real Polaris and Kobe! I had a blast! 3 poos for Polaris; 1 for Kobe, and several pees each. Cheers!

Polaris and Kobe couldn’t wait to get out this afternoon! The weather was way better than our last meeting.😊 As usual, things always start off a bit crazy with these little poopers. Slowly but surely we get settled into a relatively easy pace going in one direction😂. Sometimes, these two make me a little dizzy. Anyways it was another enjoyable run with very few people out. So when we were on the home stretch Polaris got to play some fetch. Her eyes just lit up and her smile got even bigger! (if that’s possible😃). Kobe decided to watch from the sidelines and got up when he was sure we were headed in the direction of his bed. Thanks for a really nice run today you two crazy kids! 3 poos for Polaris; none for Kobe, and several pees each. Cheers!

Well, that was refreshing.... NOT! Polaris, Kobe, and I started out with the best intentions today but then it started to snow😳. My friends wanted to call it quits right then and there but being the drill sergeant that I am (yeah right) I pulled out all the stops. So what if I couldn’t see?😂 I had a pouch full of meaty treats and a ball in my pocket! There wasn’t another soul around so Polaris got to play a little fetch, Kobe tried but those tiny legs couldn’t carry him fast enough. It was cute though. To my surprise (not really) the game didn’t last long and we headed back in a round about way thanks to me.😜 Thanks for persevering Polaris and Kobe! I had a delightful time as always. 2 poos for Polaris, none for Kobe, and several pees each. Cheers!

CRAZY! Polaris and Kobe were full of it today😂 Their enthusiasm was overwhelming which is always nice but it wasn’t for running😶. I figured with the weather being so pleasant that our usual route would be jam-packed full of pooches so we opted for the streets instead. Boy was I wrong. Everyone and their pooches was perhaps thinking the same thing? There was a lot of street crossing and holding Polaris back! It’s spring and you know what that means.... HORMONES!🤪 Kobe, on the other hand, started to slow down after a while and he almost got to the point of sitting and refusing to move. He does that sometimes.😬 Anyways, as crazy as it was I always enjoy hanging out with Polaris and Kobe! Never a dull moment, thanks! 2 poos for Polaris, none for Kobe, and many pees each. Cheers!

Spring is definitely here and the pooches are going CRAZY! Polaris and Kobe unfortunately missed their run on Tuesday so needless to say, they had some pent-up energy!🤪 We started out with a sniff and sprint, which eventually just turned into a sniff-a-thon. Luckily, I had a ball in my pocket! 😁 Polaris was pleased, even if it was only a tennis ball. The excitement didn’t last long but it did the trick and got us moving forward again😃. We were moving along quite nicely and then Kobe decided he needed a lift! Okay, I’ll carry you. It’s not easy to run with a dog in your arms so I didn’t.😂 And the three of us happily meandered on back to the abode. Thanks for another pleasant excursion you two wonderfully crazy kids! 3 poos for Polaris; none for Kobe, and many pees each. Cheers!

Happy Thursday! Polaris gave me quite the smooch when I walked in the door... it made my eyes water😆 Today was a bit of an experiment with Polaris. Her human informed me that if she carries a ball in her mouth it calms her around other pooches. OKAY! I’ll try anything so I put one in my pocket just in case😬. We hit the streets running and I decided to add on a kilometre in the beginning of our run so Kobe wouldn’t give me the old stink eye. It worked! 😜 We also did a little exploring today, I still got the stink eye😂 But, we came across many pooches this afternoon so I gave Polaris her ball and what a difference it made! Completely different pooch!😁 She was calm and instead of focusing on everything else, (except for the delicious smell of course) her focus was all about the ball and her tail didn’t stop wagging once. YAY! Thanks for a fantastic run you two crazy kids! 2 poos for Polaris; none for Kobe, and many pees each. Cheers!

Kobe! You’ve lost some weight!😬 (he got a shave, in case you didn’t notice) Polaris, you're bouncy as bouncy could be! I figured out quite quickly my friend Polaris was having some tummy troubles so I wasn’t really concerned about how fast we went today. Funny thing, this was one of our fastest runs!😂 Maybe it was because Kobe lost 1/4 of his body size, maybe because it was a touch cooler out today? Who knows but these two kids were in a fantastic mood that their bright shiny faces brought smiles to everyone. It was nice to see😁. I’ll admit I got the stink eye from Kobe when I tried to add on an extra kilometre at the end, Polaris was good either way but I’m glad I didn’t because as soon as we got back it started to rain😳. None of us wanted to deal with that today😜 Thanks for the fabulous frolic Polaris and Kobe! 6 poos (5 runny) for Polaris, 1 poo for Kobe, and several pees each. Cheers!

I can’t even pretend that Polaris, Kobe, and I ran today.... because we didn’t!🤪 I’m not sure what was happening. It was like we’d take two steps forward and one step back! All I could do was laugh. My friends were having such a good time. I surrendered (as I often do😜) and just let things happen. You know that saying IF YOU CANT BEAT ‘EM, JOIN ‘EM. Well, today I’m not so sure I even had a choice in the matter😂. Don’t get me wrong I had a fantastic time. Those kids get a little wild sometimes (as we all do) and as long as they are having fun, that’s really all that matters.😁 Thanks for the Thursday afternoon PAR-TAY Polaris and Kobe! 2 poops for Polaris; 1 poo for Kobe, and several pees each. Cheers!

You do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around, that’s what it’s all about! That song was stuck in my head the whole entire time I was out with Polaris and Kobe.🤪 Needless to say, we weren’t moving very fast today..... no worries! Kobe was more interested in puddle jumping and Polaris, sometimes I wish I could put a go-pro on her. It would be like you were on a roller-coaster ride.😆 At one point she was on her back more than her feet (she’s not white anymore). Polaris did run, AFTER A RABBIT! I went down on the wet grass and then it felt like I had done some business in my pants the rest of the way home.😳😂 We all were dirty but happy by the time we reached the palace.... it’s a jungle out there! Thanks for another amazing adventure Polaris and Kobe! I’m still smiling.😊 2 poos for Polaris; 1 for Kobe, and several pees each. Cheers!

Polaris and Kobe were wild today!😂 Must be the the weather. This way, that way, up, down, roll, roll, roll.... I was getting a little dizzy.🤪 Running really wasn’t in the cards today but that’s okay as we tried our best. There were way too many distractions and the pungent smell of spring was in the air. I’m glad these two enjoyed it.😳 Anyways, we meandered around taking a slightly different route today just to mix things up. Thanks for the always entertaining adventure Polaris and Kobe! You two always make me smile. 2 poos for Polaris, 1 poo for Kobe, and many pees each. Cheers!

After we finished partying in the house, Polaris and Kobe had nothing left!😆 I got the feeling after a kilometre or so that these two kids would have rather put their “ Jim-Jams” (pyjamas) on, curled up with a big bowl of snacks, and watched a good movie! 😜 Sorry kids! We don’t have to go fast but we just have to go. This time it was Polaris and Kobe’s turn to surrender... it took a while but eventually they did. 😬 Especially, when they realized I wasn’t turning around and I had brought extra incentive (treats) just in case! Where there’s a will, there’s a way! And we made it back a little bit happier and even more tired than when we began.😊 Thanks for putting up with me today Polaris and Kobe! Get some rest my peeps.... I’ll be back! 2 poos for Polaris (1 loose); 1 poo for Kobe, and several pees each. Cheers!
DISTANCE: 6.59 km DURATION: 1:13:52
These two crazy kids had a little more pep in their step today! I’m not sure what got into them but every time Kobe would get in front of the pack, the race was on!😂 Polaris clearly has a problem with a male being in charge😜 The three of us had a blast today. We toured into Royal Oak and made our way around the pond with ease. On our way back, I decided we needed to get a little trail running in. While skipping the most direct route home, the contract re-negotiations began.😆 Polaris and Kobe weren’t fans of the extra km I tacked on to the end and decided that every 100 feet or so they needed a snack! They both would stop right in front of me and give me the look.... you know the one. What a couple of characters who get me every time.😬 Thanks for all the laughs, and the speed work! Always enjoy hanging out with you two! 2 poos for Polaris; none for Kobe, and many pees each. Cheers!
