Somehow, Bailie and I have gotten ants in our fur lately…or it is what Mom tells us has happened. We still get our long walks and go running with Mom, but we have the need for speed. Bailie and I want to race and wrestle all the time. Since racing in the yard wasn’t killing our urge, we hit up a dog park the other day. This dog park has some woods, but not a lot and it is pretty open so we can really get our speed up.
Whew! After running like maniac dogs for twenty minutes, it feels good to chill out in a patch of snow! We ran and ran at high speed for about half an hour and then headed home. Bailie and I took a nice nap and when we woke up, it was snowing. Guess what? Yep, we headed out the back door and continued our high speed racing in the fresh snow in the yard. Mom hopes we wind down one of these days because according to her, “we are nuts”. At least it is a good workout for us!
Hey! If you are having trouble getting motivated to get outside and workout with your pup in the winter, how about joining in the Idita-Walk 2015? This is a walk to help get people out in the winter and is in the spirit of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race which is 1049 miles, from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska. Relax, you don’t need to walk 1049 miles! All you need to do is walk 1049 minutes between February 1, 2015 and March 31, 2015. You can walk daily, or real long some days, and not at all on others. Simply sign up on the Idita Walk website and get started walking.
