Frank left yesterday morning and arrived safely in Michigan. Wish him luck for his first day of work tomorrow!
I am now 100% responsible for tiring Lucy out before her 9 pm energy spike. Usually that's when Frank jumps in and plays some wrestling-and-growling game that I am just not that into. I spent about 4 hours thinking about taking her on my run today before actually doing it.
Last time we went running together, we were in Deer Lodge, Montana road-tripping our way out to Oregon. I remember it because that's the last time that we almost died together. Lucy has a hard time not chasing birds, car, leaves, snowflakes, squirrels, bicyclists, other runners, and probably lots more things we just haven't encountered yet. And have you noticed that cars will swerve TOWARD humans to avoid hitting dogs? That's how we almost died together. Also because I was trying to take pictures. In my defense, the sky was amazing and Minnesotans gets excited about mountains in the distance!
But back to yesterday, things were much improved. The dog did not miss a beat. She was trotting along at a walk while I did what I thought was running behind her. Seriously, little dogs can run (walk fast?).
That + a lot of homework and laundry is how I spent my first day without Frank. Only 28 more days to fill until our first visit to Michigan!
Anyone else run with their pup?
What's been keeping you busy this weekend?
