Thanks stephen...he is already developing a cheeky side to his character...typical terrier...big attitude in a small frame. He is still in the fright/flight stage but is getting on okay.
I'm looking forward to gentle runs with him...he is only 17 weeks so still a little too young to do too much vigourous exercise.
He has already had the bath/blowdry routine...my OH likes to keep him nice and clean..although he was less than impressed with it all.
Agree about the comment regarding dogs for pets. We lost our westie in August and only managed 3 weeks before we went and found this new addition to the household. Abit of a difference between a 10 year old westie and a Norfolk pup...no lie-ins for us on the weekend at the moment...all good stuff though.
I love running with my Springer but theres not many places to run near my house without him needing to be on his lead. There is park and canal but obviously have to keep stopping to clean his messes up which interrupts the run a bit
The other thing I find is when I road run with him he tries to stop and wee at every lampost which is a bit sore on the back and arms!
Ah well I will keep persisting wth him I am hoping one day he'll just run!
Does anyone know where you get the leads that go around your waist?
Nah, you can't be too old. My Spring Spice and I did the Canicross Neolithic Marathon in 2008. We were 11 and 58 years old at the time and it was an absolute blast.
I don't do the other canicross events as the run is only 5k and it does not seem worth all the hassle of travelling there when I've got plenty of decent runs on my doorstep.
