Meet Our Furbaby

(I wrote this Monday night but for whatever reason it didn't post and then the computer decided to eat it...but luckily I was able to go back on my iPad and find it)

I had a nice run on Sunday morning.  I was on Week 3, Day 1, of C25K, and I knew for sure that I wasn't going to be able to run for three minutes straight...I'm so out of shape!  But, I was able to push through and complete it without stopping.  I didn't run as far as I did in the earlier weeks, but that's okay - I know I'll get there.

Monday was an off day from running, so I decided to take our pup, Guinness, out for a walk around the neighborhood.

Guinness is our year and a half old Doberman/Shepherd mix pup.  We adopted him from Peace, Love, and Dog Paws Rescue out of Birmingham, Alabama.  I have wanted a dog for years but J and I lived in an apartment and we knew it wouldn't be fair to have a dog live in such a confined space.  J's job also requires him to travel quite a bit and I knew having a pup would help keep me busy and occupy my time.

One year ago on Monday, we moved into our first house.

(I soooo wish I had thought to blog about all the renovations we did to the house!!  Oh well, maybe for the next one).  The following week, PL&DP brought us our little furry bundle of joy, and he has been nothing short of that.  Guinness adds a whole new element and completion to our lives.  I'm hoping that as he gets older and calmer on the leash that he can become my running buddy.

Until next time,

  1. Congrats on the fur baby. I have two lab mixes and they run with me - although they are now six and can't go as far they used to. I started walking with them when they were 8 weeks old and slowly we graduated to running. They do calm down as they get older and the exercise is as good for them as it is for you ;)!
