Dog Shortcuts

I went down to Houston this morning and spent all day helping my son, Kenny, with heavy work around his house, including lots of digging. I was really beat at the end of the day - and sunburned. I went to the track a little after 9 tonight to get in a run. While I was stretching at the gate, a girl running on the track passed the gate with her little dog running behind her. The dog stopped at the gate and watched her run around the track. When she got to the other side of the track, the dog ran across the field and joined her again. When they both got to the gate again, the dog stopped and did the same thing. I don't think this dog is into the sport.

I onced watched a small dog (Chihuahua-Terrier Mix) follow one of my athletes on a 4 Mile Tempo Run. The guy averaged around 5:30 per mile and while the dog did take a few shortcuts, I was quite impressed with how well the dog was able to keep up. It was quite entertaining.
