Well, Dave and Jackie haven’t been doing much running together this last month or so. Dave got sent to Kuwait for 8 days for work, and now he’s in Las Vegas – he just raced the Triathlon Worlds long-course today! – but I’ll leave it to him to post about that.
What that means is that, with all his travelling, there’ve been two dogs who are needing their long runs! And one runner, missing her training buddy. So the dogs and I have been hanging out pretty much every day. I’ve taken advantage of my time with them to get some obedience training in – since the only thing Dave has trained them to do is to eat smoked salmon off his fork at the dinner table. (To be fair to Dave… OK, I am exaggerating a bit. But only a bit!)
So here are some photo-highlights of the dogs’ and my last two weeks together on the trails in and around Port Alberni. Note the progression from doggy randomness to sitting and staying for the camera! (And they are having fun too – as you can see from the pix).
