    Got 1 & 1/2 walks in with Roxie yesterday. It was so windy yesterday... when I got home from work, 2 shutters blew off our house!

    How long/far did you walk this week?: 5.5 miles so far (maybe more this afternoon)
    Successes: Nice weather; nobody died.
    Challenges: I was tired and sore from lots of activity this week (long trail runs, mountain biking, etc.) but we managed to get our walks in anyway.

    Beautiful picture Jen! I love that fact that you haven't died. :D
    We can post on Monday, if that works for you...that way we can sneak in an extra walk late on Sunday.

    Not bragging or anything, but I'm having the opposite problem. I keep forgetting to wake up early enough to get my dog on the trail before it gets too hot. She has a thick coat and it's been up to 90 degrees for the past few days. She's old so I don't want her to get overheated. Tomorrow we're getting up early! B)

    Oh how I wish it would be above freezing! :(. Good for you!!

    Xena reads Stephen King? :D Good choice!

    This challenge is whatever works best for you and your dog. It's about quality time with your pooch. If it's too cold.... or warm outside, play with them inside... brush them... have them do some tricks. Get outside when you can. Senior dogs have to take it easy. Who doesn't love a good tummy rub?
