Blizzard fun!

Things have been busy here due to the blizzard so I haven’t had a chance to post. I’m happy to say I accomplished my goal of 5 different outing types on Friday night. The blizzard was just starting and there was a few inches of snow on the ground. Doug and I put Zeke on his 50foot lead and took him to the local playground where there is a mostly fenced in concrete baseball field. After 10 mins of chasing us and playing ball, Zeke was recalling very well since there were minimal distractions, so I let go of his leash! We stayed for another 20 minutes running around in the wet, sloppy snow- it was a fabulous time!

Yesterday Zeke just went on a few quick walks since it was super slippery out and I had done 3+ hours of shoveling at work and fell asleep early. I needed to make it up to him. So instead of driving to the local park we have been canicross-ing at, we walked/ran there! This time I wore the backpack with water and food treats. I set out to do what would have been our longest canicross/hike-6 miles. Well, we surpassed that! We clocked in at 7.86 miles! This is by far Zeke’s and mine longest run outing. We took a 30 minute break after about 5 miles. Zeke went to the dog park, socialized & drank water, while I did the same! I am very very proud of us! Zeke got an early dinner and is passed out on the floor right now. I’m going to shower, nap, and meet my Dad for burritos later! Pictures to come tonight!
