Finally a cool day to run! I’m really pushing past my current fitness level now, the last few minutes of jogging were actually walking. It was uphill, in my own defense.
Oreo wanted to stand up in her DoggyRide when we got near the pond, which made it nearly impossible to steer with its front wheel locked in the jog position. That’s the first time she’s ever done that. I didn’t realize how much her sitting near the back of the carriage helps with pushing and steering it.
We pass the same people most every day, and they all smile and say things like, “She’s got it made in the shade,” or, “Now there’s a lucky dog.” Now that they see us all the time some of them are actually asking what the deal is. Today a guy asked if she has a bad hip or something. I said she’s missing a back leg, which I don’t usually say because she doesn’t actually miss it at all, she gets along just fine without it. Usually I just say she’s an amputee.
A little slower today because I was pushing myself.
