BIG AND BOUNCY

Gentlemen! Please? Control yourselves!!! I only managed 40 seconds of running on my first W6R2 a couple of days ago before Big and Bouncy interrupted play. No, not what you may be thinking!! I do, of course, refer to my dog and not something else.

I took Izzie out with me as she had been incarcerated in the house all day. We walked a very brisk 2 miles along the course of the river to the start and I then turned, carried out my ritual tapping of the top of the gate with my wedding ring and then ran. Almost immediately I had problems! A very, very bouncy dog running in front of me, trying to get between my legs and generally being a hazard. I decided that discretion IS the better part of valour and changed the run to a sniffy and paddling-in-the-river dog walk.

W6R2 happened sans-dog last night! The Mrs had her instead and she just kept darting back-and-forth between us and not knowing who to stay with... what a wonderful pooch she is!

😂. Well done getting back out there to complete. Izzie is probably confused as to why you’d be running and needs a close look to hunt for clues.

I think she is just a very bouncy dog! You get dog collars that say, 'friendly', or 'nervous'. Izz Dog needs one that says, 'I will get very wet and then jump up and say hello'. God bless her cotton socks.

You can’t beat a happy dog, she’s obviously loving life.

Oh, she is incredibly happy, except for her enforced diet!

Can’t take my dogs out when I’m running, they both bark and jump up thinking there is something wrong with me, maybe there is ha ha. Good luck with your running.
