I got my two running days in last week, and I even went on an extra walk on Sunday with both boys. On Monday, I took Swift with me for my run. It makes me so happy to see how much he loves it. When it's time to do the running part, he just takes off, with his ears flying back and a smile on his face. He's not a huge fan of the walking part. He's ready at any moment to put his little legs to work again!

I took Kool on Thursday. It didn't go quite as well as it did with Swift. I always thought Kool was a great leash-walker, but I think it was just because Swift is such a puller that Kool looks good in comparison. Kool drags behind me and sometimes just sits down and won't move. During the running intervals, I had to give him little tugs to keep him going. I felt like he was slowing me down. I've always known that Kool is a bit lazy and doesn't like to walk as much as Swift, so I was hoping to build his stamina a little bit. However, he is 10 years old, so I'm not sure that it's really the best thing for him. What do you think? He always seemed to do well when we went on our Adventureweiner hikes, but it's been a while since we've done those. I really want to build up all of our stamina so we're ready to hit it next summer.
