    Does anyone else run with their dog? Today I really just felt like going for a 1 mile walk but as soon as we hit the track my dog let me know that wasn't goin to happen. We ended up getting a nice 2.5- 3 mile run. It's great running with a partner that won't puss out on you or let you puss out.

    My dogs are horrible running partners, I get to the end of my line and they look at me and I can see in their eyes they think I am a pussy

    My other dog is 10x worse than that. She'll run great with my brother for about a quarter mile then she will literaly lay down. When my dad walks her he'll just drag her until she decides to run but the other day I went looking for my brother and her and I see him holding her sprawled out and belly up. I thought for sure that she had gotten hit by a truck or something but it turns out that my brother felt bad because she didn't want to walk and he was carrying her. Absolutely pathetic.

    My dog loves to run. I have a 2 1/2 year old Rottie. He's good for about a 7:00 pace for 3 miles or longer distance if we slow it down. It's been too hot to take him lately. He definitely comes in handy for those down days where I feel like crap. We're running whether I like it or not.

    I know I've put in good miles when both the dogs are tired. This time of year in Arizona I have to be carefull, I handle the heat better than they do.

    Yea, my dog isn't to keen on running in the heat either. I have to wait until at least 7:30 - 8:00 to start. I'm sure it's worse in Arizona though, I usually go to Phoenix in the summer and when it's that arid and pushing 120, I can't see a dog faring too well.

    I use to run with my dog and we would go up to 5 miles... Well, I hurt my knee and didn't run with him for a few months. I had him run with me a few weeks ago and after a mile and a half, I was having to drag his ass to finish my 2 mile run. He got lazy and soft on me. I need a new running partner. =p

    Side note, he charged the door ran like a mofo to the neighbors yard. I walked after him and he would stay 10 to 15 feet away and run. So, I did an all out sprint right at him... Well, I think he remember our lil running trip from that weekend and decided trying to out last me was a bad idea. He ended up just sitting down and letting me grab his collar.
