Purdey loved her first Jog with me the other night so I thought we would do it again - Well my second experience of jogging with Purdey didn't exactly go to plan! Unfortunately I kept her on a shorter lead which was a bad choice as she went in front of me and I kicked her-all In a split second I tried to slow down so I wouldn't kick her a second time and BANG -I hit the deck- my legs had slowed down but my head hadn't resulting in me splitting open my chin......with me on all fours in the road and Purdey looking at me with that "what on earth is mum doing now!" look ....and the only things i could find in my pockets were treats and poo bags ( no tissues for my very bleeding chin by this time) with shock or adrenalin kicking in I couldn't help but laugh ....what a sight I must of been!!!!

Well looking at the positives of that night-
1, Purdey came back to me instantly
2, No one saw me in that very unladylike position
3, fours hours in A&E I realized how lucky I am it could of been alot worse
4, I can still have a laugh at my own expense
5, I saved Purdey from me landing on her or kicking her again

Has anyone got any good tips for running with their vizzies as I am now abit scared of doing it again

I tired running with Kian when he was younger, then the breeder told me to stop as he was too young (7 months). Well, back then he used to get ahaead of me (he has one speed and it's fast!) Well I would give him lots of slack on the lead and he would just turn his head and put it in his mouth and try to pull me. Plus he is all over, can't run in a straight line to save his life.
Now, this is something I want to work on with his trainer. He showed is haow to leash walk him properly (so far 2 weeks and he is doing much better). I will wait near the end of our sessions and ask him to show us how to correct that behaviour.
But, seeing as how I cannot run him far enough to give him a decent workout, I think I will invest in some in-line skates and see if we can go for nice long runs/skates???
