Last week Nova turned 1 year old! Here are her birthday glamour shots. 🙂
I’m excited about this because now I feel like I can start to run with her–although for larger dogs like her, they often recommend waiting until they are a year and a half. This means that I am going to only bring her on runs that are less than 1 mile for at least the next 3 months or so. Yesterday I took her with me for the first .65 miles of my run, which she seemed to like. I did notice that she was getting tired towards the end, but that’s probably because I let her push the pace at the beginning (< 7:00/mile for the first half mile…way too fast for me). She must have been semi-worn out afterwards though because she was sitting next to me on the couch like a weirdo.
