Finished the 1st month of training for my 26.2 mile walking marathon. This week's "endurance" walk was only 4 miles. We actually walked more like 5 because of the loop in the park and getting back/forth to our car. We did about a 15 minute mile pace for the whole walk. My two toy poodles are good walkers, too! I don't think I'll take them for walks much longer than today's, though. They have tiny little legs - and are pretty tuckered right now!

I used to get the funniest looks when people realized I was pushing a DOG too. Maybe you should get a doggie stroller?

Currently, using JC HCC, Too Shea, CK and CCSS, RR or LOOB or MOP-C.

We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names and each is a different color. But they all have to learn how to live in the same box. ~Anonymous
