Patient Dogs

This is a late Dogs on Thursday post. This week I have started seriously working out again. I have treadmilled consistently at a 4.0 pace or above for 3 miles plus add weight training back in. While I really like the idea of the M2, I just don't use it. What I do like and use is Gunnar Peterson's Core Secrets workouts. This week I have done a 45 minute workout twice. So, what does all that have to do with the dogs, you ask? Well on weight days, I workout after work. So the dogs have to stay out in the yard even after I am home. I workout in their space. Really - it's theirs, they just let me use it occasionally. That's Miss Abigail being seen through the screen, sitting in the yard, waiting for the doggy door to be opened. The other part of this equation is that because I workout right after work, dinner is a little bit later. In a past life the dogs ate at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. They still eat at 7 a.m. most days. However - that 7 pm is negotiable based on how our dinner is coming along. Right when this picture was taken, it was about 7:30 and JB was cooking the scallops and I was doing sides. They were making sure we knew they were there and that they hadn't eat yet. As soon as the scallops were turned, I fetched their kibble. Even though I try my best to time their dinner so they are eating at the same time we are - they were finished before we could even dish up! (By the way Chan - it was a tooth, just not Beauregard's. I don't even want to contemplate where it came from!)


  1. Weird! Sissy found a deer jawbone the other day, but it was immediately taken from her and discarded in the dumpster.

    Kudos on the workouts!

  2. Your bloodhound is a beautiful color! They all have such personalities, and habit, don't they? Thor won't eat until we do, no matter the hour. But when the little guys take a picnic lunch outside, if they don't pack a peanut butter sandwich for the "dog brother", he gets very hurt feelings.


I appreciate you coming to see me. It may take me a bit to publish your comment - but I will get to them by the end of every day. If you leave a way for me to get back to you, I will. Thanks for taking the time to comment and share your opinions. g
