This morning Pumpkin and I set out for our run around 8am. It was pretty warm, about 80-ish, but not terrible. I decided to take a longer route this morning, a full 3 miles.
We did pretty well for the first mile and a half, but then Pumpkin did the mule, you know, where she stops, put her front paws down and will.not.move.
She's a stubborn little fox! I couldn't get her to budge, so I picked her up and tried to run with her, but that wasn't happening, so we took a minute walk break. Then I set her down, and we repeated the process in 3 minute intervals of running for 3 minutes while I kept telling her 'we're going home!', 'we'll get a treat at home!', and 'we'll go in the car!'
It kept her going, but not for longer than 3 minutes... so we did about 3 miles, but in 36 minutes. We were both pooped at the end, but we made it.
Tomorrow morning I'm going to try to do the same route, but get out a bit earlier so we can beat the sun.
In other news, I think I found THE HOUSE. JJ's in SC until Sunday night, so he'll go see it Tuesday. This afternoon, my cousin and mother-in-law are going over to see it with me. It's so wonderful, cross your fingers for me :)
