|I'm ready to run!|
I normally start off with a bit of walking to let him get out some of that overnight bladder pee, but then we get moving. Sometimes though, I notice that he's not quite ready to run at our normal pace. Usually, that means he's got to take care of some "other" business. But the best trick for making that happen is to do a little bit of running (1 or 2 minutes). By the time you stop, he's off in the grass and in a matter of a few seconds of cleanup on my part, we're ready to get back to running. So that's the typical run/walk.
|Ok, so maybe he didn't look like this|
All said, we ended up with about 10 minutes of running, which for me is a new high since coming back, and a fun memory of the time a squirrel almost took its own life by crossing the trail in front of a hungry dog. Not a bad way to start my day if I do say so myself :)
