“A good companion shortens the longest road.” – Turkish Proverb
Every Wednesday and Saturday, Molly, Lily and I run with our running group. Lily and Molly run side by side with not much air between them. If we get ahead of the group, Molly will look back to make sure that they are still close by, not losing sight of her pack.
If Molly’s boyfriend Solomon (a cute yellow lab who doesn’t realize that he’s her boyfriend) is behind, she will sit down on the path and wait for him. When they are neck and neck, she will make her move and give him a kiss on the cheek. Every once in a while, I see him glancing her way so I think he’s playing hard to get.
We run a lot of our “daily race” alone. So as you run your race, focusing on the finish, remember to glance back now and then and wait up for others. Better yet, loop back around and run by their side, celebrating the finish together.
That is so cool!
I love that her boyfriend doesn’t know he’s her boyfriend. Too cute! And great quotes!
Wonderful words for starting the week.
Ah, the joy of a run made even better with one’s furry friend at your side. ~ Kat
Nice sentiment, and a reminder to play nice. I like that. Thank you!
Great insight and very touching!
I agree…we weren’t created to go this journey alone! So much better experiencing the adventure with someone else! Have a blessed day, Kathi! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
I’ve always wanted to take up running with my pooch, but was never sure how to get started.
I’m mostly concerned because my dog is brachycephalic and I don’t want to hinder his health.
However my vet said he should be fine to run with me- I’ve always just been too afraid to start.
How did you and your pack get into it?
Start by mixing in running during a walk. You’ll soon be doing more running. Your pooch will love it. Molly and Lily do the happy dance when we run.
sounds like a good plan 🙂
I’ll be sure to let you know how me and moose fare!
Such a lovely story. Animals are so pure in their love.
