Zeke’s Week in Review

The crazy NYC winter weather has continued! With the second big storm in a row this past week (on a Monday always!) I’ve been having to walk or run to work a lot. in the snow. in the ice. And then work in it for 9 hours every day. So I’ve been BEAT. On my Friday night (Tuesday night) I just gave up and took a 30 minute, burning hot, lavendar epsom salt bath. So running this past week was few and far between.

I’m trying to keep Zeke as occupied as possible though. We’ve been going to the dog park more. What’s been happening is roads are bad in the morning, so I walk to work, roads are better in the afternoon, Doug drives Zeke to the dog park and I meet them there after work (its only about .5mile from my job). We did this 3 times I think this week. On Sunday I did get out with Zeke for a 3 miler and yet another dog park trip. At home it’s been lots of short, 5 minute training sessions and lots of what I call “FlyKibble”. It’s like flyball where the dog has to hit the button to release the ball. Zeke has to target to my hand which i then toss kibble bits to all corners of the room and he runs to find them all. Repeat about 20x until his cup of kibble is gone. Also a lot of hiding treats & car rides just to get out a little more. Lots of slow, carefully placed footing type of walks as well.

Today we did a solid 4 mile run and quick dog park trip. I was looking forward to getting on the trails because sidewalks are a sheet of ice. Unfortunately so were the trails! We did the best we could and just took our time. Here is a video of us running on the “track” at the local park. Gotta love that top icy layer crunching with every step. & another storm is predicted for Sunday/Monday….
