Everyone expects to see Sadie (our border collie) running with me on the trails, but I got some very interesting/surprised looks today when they saw Shasta (our Pomeranian) sprinting along with us like she owned the mountain. And it was even funnier when we passed hikers/runners because they're a bit embarrassed to see a 9-pound "house dog" cruising by them.
I never take Shasta on any of my real runs because, well, she's a 9-pound house dog. But she really really wanted to go running
The trail was quiet for the most part - until we ran into a train of bikers coming uphill on our way down. A group of about 7. And at the end of the run just after we got into the car there was a coyote that crossed the road. That would have been a fun tango with the dogs.
