Thankful Thursday ~ My run is over

By

Josie

This is Josie ~ our son's puppy.  As he constantly says, "She wants to be a good dog".  Our son is a runner, swimmer and cyclist.  He has two Ironman races under his belt to give you an indication his work-outs are not for sissies.

Josie is a puppy Lab so she needs exercise everyday...she has lots of energy and usually is like the energizer bunny...never stops!  This particular day Josie went for a long run and when they got back she had this soulful look. She might have finally run out of steam!  I think she was glad the run was over!

She might be pooped today, but I'll bet this morning she was looking to run some more! Puppies just seem to have that inexhaustible energy once they catch up on a bit of rest.

Hi Dorie in this heat I would be pooped, I have not been on my running schedule due to the temperatures and I know what you mean about new puppy energy, my little Lola is like a wind up toy!

Hi Dorrie, How cute. perhaps she met her match and now was exhausted, :-) But one thing certain, tomorrow is another chance and she would do it all over again.

A Lab is a perfect dog for an avid runner-cyclist-swimmer.  As you have stated the breed has a lot of energy.  I have a very docile American Eskimo, that is a couch potato.  We are a match made in heaven:-)

Josie can't wait for our short breaks at Auditorium Shores so she can swim around in Town Lake and grab a drink.  These hot temps probably have her runs limited for the next few months.c

Oh poor Josie.  I have heard that is it not good to run dogs continually, like when on a bike.  Can't remember the reason but I think it had something to do with the way they sweat. Again, poor Josie.

She certainly looks like she pushed it farther than she expected.  Kind of says "ooooo I am sore" on those eyes!
