Even though the running pup is about 50 pounds at 5 1/2 months he is a big scaredy cat. We were running along the road and would try to hide behind me whenever a big truck or bus would go by. He was much better this time about not coming to a screeching halt to sniff something. He did sniff along to way and pick up sticks. He wasn't wanting to run as fast as me the first mile out but the second mile he must have hit his stride because he looked up at my and took the leash in his mouth as to play tug with me. He also started running really fast. MUCH faster than I had been running before. So now I know he was holding back on me! Some running with dogs tips
Saturday is my first "long run": 6 miles...not so bad.
