With the temps dropping slightly and puddles galore, we just couldn't help ourselves. It's time to run. The dogs are becoming restless, channeling their energy into less productive activities like digging holes to the center of the Earth, chewing name plates, and eating houses. After a run, it's almost as if there's an audible calming in the yard, as if all is finally at peace. The dogs eat their breakfast, give a slow gentle morning howl, then sit back content to welcome the day. We all feel better after a nice run- it's just good for the soul.
