Oh.. I thought your 5K is on Dec 13. I just don't know if I could log on mycorgi.com this weekend so I just left a message in advance :-) I am proud of you and Tucker doing 3 miles!! Good luck again.
Jeter will graduate obedience class tomorrow. He is doing great. He got new snow boots, liners(socks for the boots), and waterproof winter coats. To my surprise, he loves to wear them!! These snowy days in Chicago, he has been a happy goofy corgi playing in the snow :-)
I just want to say hello and let you know I finished the Chicago marathon. I was doing pretty good until I had some ankle problem at 16 miles. So I crossed the finish line later than my goal time but I was glad I didn't quit.
Thank you for your kind comment, Amanda.
It was 2007 Chicago marathon that made me think about running. It was a really hot day. I was covering the marathon (I am a Chicago correspondent for a Korean news agency) and saw an old Korean couple running together. After the race I talked to them and found out husband is in his 70s and wife is in her mid 60s. They started running about 9 year ago. They were my inspiration. At least I started younger age than them :-) My husband Andrew has some ankle problem but he started walking and finished 5 K walk. We hope someday we can finish half or full marathon together.
My half marathons and my 1st marathon, I ran and walked. Like I said I am slow(yes, I am penguin runner) and especially last year I was sick and got surgery so I couldn't train myself enough but just wanted to feel that big event atmosphere. This year I will be back of the pack again but I don't care. I will just enjoy the fact that I can run(and walk) and hopefully being the finisher :-)
If you run the races, you will love that. I will never forget my first race. I was the 2nd from the last but that was one of the best feeling I ever had in my life.
Thank you Amanda, I am a new runner too. I started to run last year and yes, I did follow couch to 5 K program :-) I am slow but proud of myself being a runner. I finished 2 half marathons and going to run my 2nd Chicago marathon on Oct 11. I always want to run with my dog but Jeter is too fast for me haha.
Say hello to Tucker. He is such a cutie!!
That is cute. Izzy is a very sweet little girl but not above getting into trouble if no one is watching. I think if Sparty was not around she would love to carry a stuffed toy around but she does find it fascinating watching him dissect one. And if she gets a chance to get one that he wants she carries it all around in front of him like she is saying "nah nah". It is very funny to watch. Our breeder said one of the reasons she started with Honeyfox dogs was for temperment and we certainly are experiencing it. I am glad you are enjoying Tucker so much. They are such fun dogs.
Thanks for the comment on my boy, Ponch. His size and coloring is an immediate topic of conversation with people we met. Just like your Tucker, my boys are so sweet with adults, children, other dogs, and our established house cats. I haven't had puppies in a very long time and while having littermates is a challenge, I am so enjoying the journey.
Izzy's dad is Honeyfox Gordon Bandit Echo and her grandpa is Honeyfox Johnny Angel. I got her from a breeder here in Michigan but she started her kennel with Honeyfox dogs. They seem to have a distinctively "soft" expression. I don't know about Tucker but Izzy is a very mild mannered, sweet little girl. My cat is Chong(Irescued him and his brother Cheech) and he shares the girl dogs love of the sun!
Hi Amanda and Tucker!!! YES, orzo is home...Kiwi is NOT a fan, but it's ok, maybe one day she will like him. We've already been to the dog park a couple of times this week and he's doing really well. Hopefully you'll be able to meet him soon :).
