No Rain for the Dog Jog!

On Saturday, mom and I did the Richmond SPCA Dog Jog.  Every year my therapy dog group the Caring Canines has a team.  Last year's Dog Jog was a crazy, wet mess, and I refused to do the tricks I was supposed to do as part of the flash mob.  This year looked like it would be a repeat of last year, with a rainy morning and a very bleak forecast.  But about an hour before the Dog Jog started, the rain stopped and the sun came out.

Ready to start

Nearing the finish line

What a fun Dog Jog!

After the Dog Jog, mom, dad and I went for a pack hike at North Anna Battlefield Park because it turned out to be such a beautiful afternoon.  We had never been there before.  The woods were pretty and the trail was nice, although short.  We hiked the whole thing and it was only a little over two miles.  But mom and dad thought the Civil War earthworks were very interesting.  I thought the earthworks looked like they would be fun to play on, but momma said that wasn't allowed.

Great day for a hike!

This morning, we went on another hike with some of my new doggie friends.  It was a little bit rainy, but not too rainy for us, so we had a wonderful time.  I spend the rest of the day today curled up in the nice cozy bed my buddy Hero gave me when he moved to Scotland.  I think I like the bed so much because it smells like Hero.  We miss Hero and his family a lot.

I haven't been blogging as much lately because I'm learning to use my new computer, but I hope to be blogging more soon. 


  1. What a fun weekend you had!! You'll figure out your new 'puter. It's pretty easy!

  2. We need to get our Mom our jogging! Heehee! Looks like you had an awesome weekend! And good luck with your new computer - Mom is muttering about having to get a new phone soon, and as much as she likes shiny new things, she hates all the work that goes into 'upgrading technology' - whatever THAT means!

  6. Woohoo! Go Garth! Looks like a fun weekend you had. And your computer looks very fancy :) The very first computer we had was an apple, but that thing was ancient LOL It's been years since I've use one.

  7. Sounds like a great weekend Garth. We miss you. Have a marvelous Monday.

  8. It's been a while since I reacted, but I read every post! Always love your pictures and all the stuff you do. You're an active family, that's clear. Give your mom and dad a big kiss for me, will you?! Good luck figuring out the new computer, always a bothersome task, but once you do... Kittie kisses from Arie, Bram, Cees and Dirk.

  9. Garth,
    Nice to see you blogging. I love that you are having adventure walks. It is a grand activity.

    I notice you have learned a sit technique that hides your baggy bottom. Well done.
