Today, I had the absolute pleasure of seeing Kenny and Sully again! I definitely needed some dog running time - I got lost for about an hour (thanks construction) before I made it there. One minute in their smiling company and it was all worth it! I hadn't seen these boys since January, and boy has Sully ever matured! I remember an energetic Lab full of what I call 'puppy power', and today I was met with a wonderful, steady, and easy-going running partner! I guess the Lab puppy stage is 3 years? Maybe the weather was too warm? Whatever the reason, Sully was an absolute star today and I was sad to see our hour end. We zig-zagged around the neighbourhood so I wouldn't get lost (again) and he happily ran by my side, regardless of other dogs, people, and squirrels. Sticks however were another story - he is a stick fanatic! Once we did 5km, I went back for Kenny. Old dogs just tug at my heart, and while we could only go up and down the block instead of our km we did in January, the smile on his face told me it was perfect. He sniffed whatever his heart desired because when you've spent 12 years of being a good dog, you deserve to sniff what you want! We went back to the yard for some off-leash time, but he was ready to head inside for water so I topped the boys' water dishes up, gave them last minute pre-nap pets, and was off. Thanks for the lovely hour boys! I hope you each had a great time! Sully - 1 poop, 5 pees. Kenny - no poop, 3 pees.
