Extreme Walkies Edition

Momma and I are worn out after yesterday! We went to an event called the "Ruck-n-Roo 5k", a dog walk sponsored by a local greyhound rescue group. It benefited a group called H4 -- Hounds Helping Heroes Heal -- that helps provide service dogs to veterans with PTSD. Momma and I were raring to go!

I made some new furiends right away. These lovely ladies are Duchess and Lexi. We hung out almost the whole walk. They were very lively! We had lots of fun on our walk, even though it was pretty cold and windy.

Momma and I were pretty tired and worn out after we got back, and starting to feel pretty out of shape. Then they told us that they'd made a mistake when they were mapping out the course -- we walked 5 miles instead of 5 kilometers. No wonder we were tired! Afterwards we went and hung out on the patio at Chuy's, a Tex-Mex restaurant nearby. They were super-nice to all us pups. Momma brought my blankie out of the car to lay on, and since it was pretty cold Momma made me a boxer-burrito for a while. I didn't mind, because she kept sharing her tortilla chips!

Guess who else was there? My good furiend and colleage, Dr. Shammy! He's an LBR alum like me, and we have impawtant medical conventions where we discuss squeakerectomies and stuffing surgery.


I hope everyone had a grreat weekend too! Did you get in a good walkie like I did??
