Our Long Week
Fit Dog Friday!
Hubby and I love to exercise, although I must admit this school term has been really hard on me. I haven't been able to exercise as much as I would like, my homework is hard and doesn't seem to stop in it's constant flow. I leave the house early and come home in the dark - this is why we're doing doggy daycare for this term at least! The lack of exercise and the stress is starting to catch up, I always joke that I exercise so that I can eat what I want - it's not really a joke... I love to eat good food, I love to cook, hubby loves to cook... You get the idea.
Anyways, I've been making an extra effort to get moving again, sometimes it means that I'm up later than I'd like, or heading to bed early without cleaning but you do what you gotta do. The dogs on the other hand, we never fail to exercise them. Or else they'd go crazy!
Over the weekend - We visited my grandma, she has a huge fenced in field so of course we ran the dogs through the mud and the muck! It was doggy heaven of course.
Monday - Doggy daycare, they always come home exhausted. This Monday though another dog decided he had an issue and he attacked Ziva! The handlers saw the whole thing and said she didn't do anything wrong or inappropriate, she was minding her own business when BAM! He hit! Do you know what they said? "She didn't even fight him back! She's such a sweetheart, and not a fighter."
My Ziva?! My previously reactive little princess, didn't fight back?! Way to go girl! Well the adrenaline dump hit her hard, and so of course she came home maybe more tired than usual. Thankfully he didn't break skin or hurt her.
Tuesday - No daycare, the pups stayed home and rested. In the afternoon we came home, grabbed them, and headed out to one of our favorite spots to do some trail/hill running for an hour. Ziva doesn't have a harness yet for canicross so she isn't allowed to pull like Dante so she ran with me while Dante did a hard run with dad. Then bathtime and bedtime.
Wednesday - Doggy daycare, pick up the pups, grab dinner and head off to agility practice! Ziva did great! We did tunnels, chutes, and tire jumps! At the end of class though she started growling at little noises - her cue to me that she is way tired.
Friday - That would be today...i'm thinking a nice walk is in order so that we can be fresh to run some more hills tomorrow. Oh and we need to keep practicing our circle work, so maybe i'll do that when I get home.
