My Future Running Buddy

Monday, January 08, 2018

So we inherited another dog recently. Chelsea.... Chelsea is no Chocolate (officially named by my daughter Chocolate Milkshake). Chocolates 11 and I have had her since I had my previous life. Back in the beginning we'd lounge on the sofa together and cuddle while we watched TV When I first got Chocolate, she was puppy. Then I became more active. I stopped watching TV (that's right, I watch ZERO TV) She was my running companion until just a few years ago. She listens to all the standard commands. I ask her to stay, she stays. I tell he to sit and she sits. She howls something that sounds like "I love you" when I walk in the door. She will give me five and jump up on me when I say "hug". She is a good girl. Currently, she is back to being my snuggle companion. I think she has arthritis. She still has puppy like moments, but she is kind of an old girl. Chelsea is six. She might understand "come". She is super cute, but I have a lot of work to do with Chelsea.

I haven't taken Chelsea out for a run yet because I can't run at the moment, but I am really hoping she makes a good running buddy. She's fast. I miss when Chocolate would go running with me. Choco will do short walks only currently. If I take her for anything more than a few miles, she finds a shady tree, lays down, and refuses to get up. It will be fun to have a dog to run with again.

    Hope CHELSEA is okay. Have she had a vet check her out. Our little girl is 9 and having problems since she was two, but all that was brought on by her reaction to a flea tick med from the vet. Bad reaction, lifelong problem

    Chelsea sure looks younger than 6 to me. Hope she's a good running buddy for you too. Sounds like Chocolate has earned her time to rest ... Yeah. Finding shade to lie down and refusing to move. It's too much for her now.
