Fortunately Sadie was feeling extra chipper this morning and when I went to grab my iPod (which is located in my mini gym bag that hangs by her leash) she started running around in circles. This is Sadie-speak for “Take me on a run, woman!”
I wasn’t about to disobey for fear that she might ransack the couch when I left for work.
(Side note: I didn’t snap a pic of Sadie this morning, so please enjoy the above puppy picture of her when she was a youngster. Look how teeny!)
Sadie and I went on a nice five mile run followed by a 1.5 mile cool-down walk. You’d think this would wear Sadie out, but I promise you when we arrive home this evening, she’ll be ready for more active fun. Once her energy level drops off a bit, maybe she’ll finally gain some weight.
Is your pet skinny or fat or juuuuust right?
Sadie is naturally small for a vizsla. Her mom’s name is Tiny and she only reached 35 pounds full grown (about 10 -15 pounds less than normal female vizslas). Sadie is just under 35 pounds and is a ball of energy. She eats her food (and we constantly leave food out for her) but she still remains a bag o’ bones. Wouldn’t it be nice to have that metabolism?
Running always makes me want a big breakfast. Oatmeal or pancakes seem to call to me!
Today I opted for pumpkin protein pancakes because throughout my run I had pumpkin pancake brain. I just kept thinking about the tasty ‘cakes!
I love the cinnamon and pumpkin combination in these pancakes. So tasty!
I enjoyed my breakfast with a cup of Yogi triple echinacea tea. My belly is warm.
