Yesterday, I got up and let the dogs out around 6:45AM. I saw four paws walking the sidewalk and next thing I knew there was another lab in our yard - this one yellow. Our labs were friendly to him, although Riley was very protective of his girl, Annie. It was a bit adorable.
The lab hung out for a while - no collar and I knew he wasn't local. Our poop clean-up dude showed up (yes, I pay someone to do this) and we debated about what I should do. He thought it was a girl dog but clearly he was wrong! I decided to wake up Biv (I am sure he was thrilled) and see what he thought. After checking him out - I swear we're dog whisperers - we deemed him friendly and I called the shelter. They offered to pick him up but I said no, we'll hang onto him. He was definitely old and I was scared that the owner would take too long to get there. I took to Facebook and I had awesome friends repost a picture of him and before I knew it, I had loaded him into the car to see if he had a chip that we could scan. He did but it wasn't registered. They suggested we call other vets and the very first one we called had a woman looking for him! Yay! She got my name from the shelter and was calling me at the same time as we were calling her. Thankfully the vet was willing to hold onto him until the woman got there. All in all, Max was only away from his home for about 4 and a half hours but I can't imagine how scary that was for his owner! We live about 2 miles apart so he had an adventure!
Lesson learned: make sure your dog's chips are actually registered! It'll lead them back to you faster than you can believe! This woman had forgotten Max even had one!
I've been struggling with getting up in the morning and actually going to work out. I think I just haven't been sleeping well during the night and I tend to wake up naturally between 4 & 5. Today, I was awake, ready to go at 5AM for a BodyPump class when I got a text that the class was cancelled. Come to find out, the the studio I was heading to had a fire at the business next door so they were closed. I really should have figured out whether or not PAI had space for me in the Spin/TRX class but my tired brain thought that sounded difficult. Back to bed I went and I don't regret it. Maybe my core does, but I don't.
I think I need to find a workout buddy in the early mornings until I can get this "roll back over" bug out of my system! Any takers??
We've been living on the same street for almost 8 years this summer. When we first moved in, none of the neighbors really spoke to us because we were about 20 years younger than them. Most of those neighbors have left and now younger people, closer to our age have moved in. Although we still don't really talk. I saw a neighbor at the CapCity Half Marathon Expo a few weeks back while I was volunteering & it took us a minute to place each other as neighbors. We got a good laugh out of it and he gets made fun of by his friends! Now there is a commonality so maybe we'll talk more! I did try to recruit him for MIT but he'd be in a much faster pace group! Just to prove no one really talks to each other - we got an invite today for an "annual" street BBQ a neighbor holds that we've never been invited to before. Should we go?
I am excited to start looking at projects around the house we can do this summer! Biv and I need to get our list synced up because we both have different priorities!
Am I the only one who can't get up in the morning lately??
