Go Puppies Go!

Posted on: February 20, 2010

It’s winter. We live in a second floor condo. We have a one year old standard poodle named Frasier. He has lots of energy. This combination of factors would usually be a recipe for a pretty rambunctious puppy, but I think all in all Frasier is a wonderful pooch and overall very well behaved. Seeing as we don’t have a yard at our current abode, I  try to get him out with Niko for at least one good run/walk during the day.

My friend Traci also has a huge dog (yellow lab named Buddy) and a baby, so she too likes to burn some of that dog’s pent up energy. It turns out that Buddy and Frasier are great playmates, and so are Niko and her son Eli. About once a week we get our entourages together and bring the pooches to a park near Traci’s house and let them run and romp to their hearts’ content (followed up by a celebratory pizza at Traci’s place). And we sort of look like this: two black belt mommies (yes, Traci was my karate partner in crime) pushing their two sons in three wheel strollers, accompanied by two large breed dogs leashed around our waists. Once we get to the park it’s leashes off and “Go Puppies Go”! (See short video by clicking on the link to the left.)

Awesome! I look forward to our outing this week!

me tooo! I wonder how many pizzas we can eat in one year? 🙂

oh, oh, i have a baby, a 3 wheel stroller and a big dog…ok, maybe Roxy’s just a medium dog, but she can definitely hold her own!!

so I tried the stroller at the real dog park the other day and Niko’s head was bopping around like crazy – but when the snow melts, and it’s a little smoother we should hit it up!
