Yippee, a break in the rain!

I met Sara and Bella on the Alameda Creek Trail this morning. Bella had her first "off-leash" walk! She did marvelous, I must say. Naturally, she followed Boomer everywhere he went. They met lots of other dogs, wrestled each other on down the trail. They were stopping and peeing together, hopping over each other. It was so fun seeing Bella having fun and running free. We went on a 3.5 mile walk together.

This guy was nice enough to strike a pose for us.

Bella has grown so much. She is now quite a bit taller than Boomer but they weigh about the same.
Boomer found a stick by Shinn Pond and baited Bella with it. They played keep-away for a while.

Boomer was looking pretty darn tired when we got back to the parking lot but I still wanted to get a run in. I was thinking about having Sara bring him home but decided against that. He IS my running partner these days, after all. I put him on his leash so he would be able to trot next to me and we ran 5.5 miles in and around Quarry Lakes. He didn't want to go any faster than a 10:30 pace but I really didn't mind. It's the first run I've had since Saturday, the weather nice and the scenery was beautiful. I wasn't in a hurry to get anywhere. I was just happy to be outdoors doing what I love.

I work all day tomorrow but then I'm off until Tuesday night. Woohoo!

Until later.............
