Adventures: The Art of Running

During our stay in Scottsdale for Thanksgiving, Maggie got to run free.  Living in Los Angeles, Maggie rarely gets to be off leash let alone run free in a big field.  She loves being outside and running so we had to give her some time when we could.

We discovered the many tongues of Maggie while giving her a chance to run.

There's the front, long tongue:
 And the side, jowl slap tongue:
 Opposite side, jowl slap tongue:
 And, of course, the lip smacking, watch me go tongue:

Living in the city means that Maggie goes for long walks but she doesn't get to run crazy like this too often.

What do your dogs love to do???

  1. We always used to feel so guilty about the running thing too. We used to tell ourselves it was better because our walks are so interactive and they spend time with us. They do love going to our 'secret dogpark', but now that they're a bit older they run around for about 5 minutes and they're done. Love the 'many faces' of Maggie's tongue!

    1. She seems pretty happy still but it would be nice to have open fields once in a while. We're excited to see what she does if it's snowing when we go to Chicago for winter break!!!!

  2. hahaha I love the side jowl slap tongue! Hilarious picture!

    Even though we live in the city, there are lots and lots of parks around for dogs to run at. We have a secret park that we go to that actually isn't a dog park, but we are always the only ones there so we let Athena off leash. This is her favorite place to go because she can run free just like she loves to! Athena also looooovveeessss to go to her daycare because she gets to run free with all of her doggy friends =)

  3. We are mean parents who don't allow off-leash. I have too many fears of being fined or Braylon running off since she did once before when we tested it! No thanks! She just likes to run TOO much! Were you in Scottsdale, AZ?

    1. We only let her off leash there (Scottsdale, AZ!) because we were in a fenced in area. She couldn't really go anywhere and there were 4 of us there, just in case. When we were in Chicago, she broke free from her leash and went running away, that gave us a heart attack. She's only allowed off leash in enclosed areas now!
