Cooper was a bad dog last night. There is this other dog in my building that he hates. We were coming in from a walk as this other dog and his owner were going out, and Cooper did his rabid dog impression.. barking, snarling, growling. Now, he plays very nicely with the other dogs in the building, he just hates this one dog. The other owner got upset with me though. She yelled at me and said Cooper should be muzzled since he is obviously an aggressive dog. I wanted to tell her it was just HER dog that gets Cooper riled up, but I bit my tongue and just walked away, dragging Cooper along with me. Most people in my building have never even heard him bark before. He is usually such a calm dog, but not last night. Now I am worried the other dog's owner will complain to building management and they will make me muzzle Cooper.
On a happy note... I got to the gym today after running errands and getting my blood work done. I ran on the treadmill for 38 minutes. I decided to increase the intensity of my treadmill workouts by increasing the incline. I only put it on 1% today, so I didn't really notice a difference. I am hoping this change will get me better at running outside once the weather warms up a little. I was in a little bit of a time crunch today as I had so much to do this afternoon, so I didn't do a full ST workout, but I did do upper body and a couple machines for lower body. I didn't walk Cooper as much as I had planned, but I did walk over 8 miles. The weather has gotten very windy and it is cold and snowing as well, which is why I cut his afternoon walk short. I am just so sick of being cold and having to bundle up to go outside. Come on Spring!
