Teddy & Buddy continue to be fuuurrloughed. They have been into the new clinic a few times and, whilst the corridor to the different clinic rooms might appear just that to us, the dogs seem to manage to turn it into the Rowley Mile as they race up and down enjoying the space.
Sarah has started to take Buddy running with her. At first she ran with the dogs individually, but the neighbours complained as Buddy didn’t stop crying about being away from his bestest friend Teddy. So, to save everyone’s ears, she started running with them together.
Running with them both does have its challenges. Teddy, who loves to run through puddles, does struggle to ‘encourage’ Buddy to let him through. There is often a tug of war so Teddy can align himself to the middle of the puddle, with Buddy running around the puddle.
Teddy still gets excited at Sarah getting ready to go out for a run and likes to position himself at the bottom of the stairs to ensure he doesn’t miss any runs.
When the clinic was refurbished, a shower was added so the team could exercise during the day and freshen up afterwards. Sarah had to take her daughter to Shelford train station early one morning so decided to go for a run around Shelford and get ready for the day at work. A great plan…until trying to navigate getting out of home without Teddy realising mum was off for a run without him.
To achieve this, Sarah dressed for running and then put her work dress over the top of her running gear. When she put her shoes on she sneaked her trainers into her bag and so left the house without getting into trouble from Teddy.
A great plan for that day, but since then Teddy has now firmly planted himself in the bedroom when Sarah is getting ready for work to ensure he doesn’t miss anything!!!!! There’s no fooling THAT dog!
