Thread: Happy Dog Run

  1. #1

    Default Happy Dog Run

    This is now happening close on to everyday now.
    It just starts with Murphy looking at you and you don't pay attention to him.
    He will bark at you. Ignore that then he just takes off running around the house.
    Wow is he fast he comes back into the lounge and jumps up onto the lounge the runs on the back rest of the couch, only because he has so much speed up he can do this.
    He then jumps off and runs into the kitchen or passage way, then back to us again. Don't get in his way cause he will run you over.
    This will continue for about 3 minutes, then his is so out of breath he has to stop.
    But it is so funny watching him do this.
    So do other have the same thing going on wiht your dogs.

    If you find yourself going through hell; Don't stay. Just keep on going.

    So now you are telling me my little tank will be doing this for a long time to come.
    Oh well it is fun to watch him. But we will just have to stay seated as he is running around.

    Pretty instigates this with my lot.

    I hear her special bark for this then there are the looks between them for ready..set..go and from the backyard they bottle neck in the airlock going into the pen, run around the perimeter, bottleneck again coming out and the first to the back steps is the winner and off they go again, looking at each other to make sure no one breaks away too soon.

    Before the back yard was enclosed one dog at a time was allowed out. I had well worn inside and outside the pen running tracks as they would race all together.
    The dog outside the pen would get the shits as sometimes the ones in the pen cheated and ran across it getting to the finish line first.

    This was done at dusk as the dog on the outside was the one who would be in with us for the night. The other 2 (at that time) were put in the pen for the night. I had it written on a calendar whose turn it was so that they didn't accidentally miss a turn just because I had the memory of a gnat.

    I would be grateful if anyone could do the math for me and tell me just how big the pen is if it has a roughly circular circumference of 90mtrs.

    My old dog used to zoomies from pure excitement when I got home from work. Usually outside though. And I used to just stand very close to the gate or the car so she couldn't bowl me over.

    Di: if I used this calculator right (Circle Calculator) it is 640m. That is huge!

    Yes. I needed them to be permanently contained and I will not go walking with them, snakes, not well at times etc as well as them having room to exercise and also get away from each other if they want to.

    It really is only used if we are away and have someone in daily to check and feed them. It is always open though and they have access to it when out the back and they are always going to play or rest in there. They sleep inside at night now that Jodi has done her containment after her op.

    It gives me a great sense of security knowing they can not run off and get into neighbouring sheep as well as having the room they need for their zoomies etc.
