|She's very concerned when we have to rest--that word isn't in her regular vocabulary.|
Now for the good news! Despite having a week of lower mileage, this week Barley and I passed the 900-mile mark for our goal! We're now at 908.46--so we have over 2 months to walk about 92 miles! That's about 1.5-miles per day, which has become a short walk for us. The end is in sight! Stay tuned in December for our final FitDog Friday of the year when we reveal our total mileage for the year and a little surprise Barley and I are working on to thank all of you for your support this year!
All month, we've had adventures in our neighborhood since our neighbors go all out for Halloween. Every time we've left the house, we've seen new additions to our neighborhood--and Barley border collie stares almost all of them the first time we walk by. In the spirit of Halloween, I thought we should share some of these pictures.
|She had to crouch to walk by the zombie head beside the sidewalk.|
|She's on high alert because we had to walk by . . .|
|. . . this nasty thing. Barley wanted to take a sip out of that saucer--I intervened.|
The most decorating I did was carving a pumpkin with two of my friends from work. Barley enjoyed pumpkin night because she got to play with her one and only dog friend, my co-worker's border collie-aussie mix, and she got to come and steal some pumpkin guts while we were carving away.
|Mine is the wolf--it isn't as fun as I thought it would be.|
And I had an unintentional creepy addition to my front porch--I found this creepy (and huge!) thing on a package the mailman had left on my front porch yesterday.
Our beautiful leaves are slowly disappearing, but we did manage one quick visit to the Arboretum last weekend to get just a little more time in with the beautiful colors. My phone had a little snowflake icon on the weather app for this weekend, so I'm pretty sure on our next visit the Arboretum will look like a totally different universe.
