Monday was a long weekend in Canada. I don’t know if it was for everyone else? Anyway…we decided to do a family bike ride to the waterfall near our house. We were going to leave Rex behind but he really wanted to come along…I can never say no to him
We left and we were stopping every 5 mins in the shade to douse him with water and let him have a drink. I don’t know if that was overkill but I’m sure anyone with a nursing degree would approve I didn’t want him to feel hot We had to stop to fill up the air in our tires and Rex and I waited in the shade
* Colin was wearing his running outfit.
* I wore flip flops lol
We made it to the falls, which is less than 4km (2.5miles) away from our house and locked up our bikes, which proved challenging with 2 bikes and the trailer and only one lock! lol
We walked across tons of jagged rocks to the water and Rex dove right in when we got there. Logan immediately tried to follow. It’s funny we never wanted him to be afraid of water but it might be easier if he was as the ‘no fear’ attitude is very heart stopping sometimes
Albion Falls is one of the many waterfalls located in the city I live in. <—- the waterfall capitol of the world!!! It’s crazy how many waterfalls we have. Maybe I’ll make it a goal to visit them all, as I bet I’ve only seen a quarter of them
Rex started kind of limping at the waterfall. We assumed he had cut his paw on a rock. I checked and nothing. Pressing and all that jazz, no yelps. However, we decided that there was no way he could run back home and asked Logan if he could share his bike trailer seat with Rex – he excitedly agreed and we pulled Rex safely home.
* Colin got cropped out – don’t you hate that you can’t see anything on your smart phone out in the sun?!!? they’ve gotta fix that!
Colin is taking him to the vet today just to make sure there’s nothing seriously wrong. I think he’s just getting old poor guy.
I can’t wait to ask the new vet I found all about running, as apparently this one is good for athletic dogs! …or more so owners lol
1. have you ever put a dog in a bike trailer or transported your pet in an interesting way??
2. do you like waterfalls??? when was the last time you were at one??
3. do you bike?? what kind of bike do you have??
I really want a road cycle, but I only have a mountain bike. I love it! It’s a Giant Boulder SE and it has adjustable front suspension – which I love!!!! I think I’ll always keep it b/c my ex bought me that bike for graduation and then took it back – and sold it (!!) so I saved up money and bought the exact same bike when I could and it was my first “big” purchase so I like it b/c it represents my independence.
