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

Ouch! There's an internet store that sells stuff for all kinds of sports activities with dogs, but I can't remember the web address. One of the items they sell is a short shock absorbing connector segment that you attach between the leash and the dog's collar which is elastic. I've seen whole bungie leashes but this one is just a short segment so it isn't as bouncy/elastic as the bungie leash. This is similar, but I'm not sure if it's identical to what we ordered. We've never tried running with Rosie but we do a lot of long walks with her and this was a way of not having to keep her on as tight a rein yet not being jerked around too much when she sees something she wants to explore...
