We had some springtime fun and playtime recently. This past week there were a couple of gorgeous weather days with nice temperatures for getting outside and having loads of fun! Even our crazy little brother got more wild than we thought he could get! All of us got out in the yard and did a lot of racing and chasing and everyone has been sleeping really well.
Olivia and Nelson are bonding more and more which also means sometimes getting into some trouble. For the most part, they just have a great time together. Mom took this short video of them one evening in the backyard.
Mom no longer runs in the winter since she broke her ankle on the ice a few years ago. She started up running with us again this month. Bailie is her favorite dog to trust when it comes to running. We normally alternate running days with Bailie, then Olivia and me together. We can be a bit much sometimes, so Mom eases into things with us.
Since Mom’s heart attack she hasn’t run more than two and a half miles. She has actually really wanted to get back up to four miles but is a bit afraid. In previous years she would just go run four miles but now having only run two miles in any run adding distance has been slow going. This week the goal was to hit three miles with Bailie. Guess what? They hit three and a half miles and nothing bad happened. Mom says it feels so good to run further again, and they have four mile runs planned for the near future. Olivia and I will also ramp up to three miles right away. Once a runner, always a runner is what Mom says.
We love being outdoors, having fun, getting exercise, and staying fit, so we are joining our friends at Living Laughing and Barking in Our Backyard is for their Nature Friday blog hop.
