In an order to try to coordinate logistics, if you are interested in running with a dog, please fill out the survey below. Thank you!
Xena and I headed over to the trail for a run this morning. The first mile was a little clumsy but she got the hang of what we were there for very quickly. I’m pretty sure there was a huge smile on my face the entire time as well.
The time was flying by and pretty soon we’d already run 2.5 miles. I wanted to take it easy with her since it was her first run so we turned around at this point. Not bad for a sweet dog who has spent most of her life in a kennel. Of course, a temporary home at Better Days Animal League is certainly better than her original fate from the breeder/owner who was going to drown her and her sister when he could not get rid of them as puppies.
Five miles complete.
She was happy.
I was happy.

First, a thank you to Emily for designing a logo. I absolutely love it and look forward to having a uniform image to begin promoting the program. The B&W version:
Third, dog run on Saturday (just me (Abbi)…and one dog!).
Fourth, be sure to like the Facebook page. A link is in the upper right hand corner of the page or here.
Currently, Miles and Mutts is working to start a program to run with shelter dogs and is evaluating potential runners. I spent time today getting to know of a few of the potential dogs who would be able to go off site with others. These two sisters would definitely love a running buddy! They are easy to handle and I look forward to trying a real run with them. Of course, it would be even better if they find a home before I have the next opportunity to try running with them.
