As of Wednesday, March 13, the pTiny pTerodactyl, Y-Bo and I finished our mission to walk the 1049 minutes needed to be part of the 2013 Idita-Walk! And we manage to complete this trek with 88 minutes to spare! Pardon my immodesty but…AwwwwRight!
I think I can safely say that the three of us had a thoroughly good time. Sure, the weather wasn’t always in our favor, but Y-Bo’s a sturdy pup and loves the cold, I’m your basic couch potato who was desperate for some exercise and my grandson, pTpT is a very good sport who enjoys napping in the fresh air under his grandma’s endless supply of warm, comfy blankets.
But we weren’t the only ones in my family to benefit from the Idita-Walk experience. My precious Princess Cat, has enjoyed her daily Golden String romps. I don’t know that she’s lost any weight. However, in just these few short weeks, she has lost her ‘wheeze’ and has gained a bit more stamina. On a purely selfish note, her increased activity has provided me with several photography sitting–where she’s done very little sitting but lots of showing-off that I can, in turn, show-off on this blog. Win-Win!
A special shout out goes to my fellow team mates of Team Dogventurers. On those sleeting, gray mornings as I hiked along, it warmed me to think of the rest of you tromping around in the gloom, too. I’d also like to thank YouDidWhatWithYouWeiner and Terrier Torrent (Gizmo) for their combined efforts which enabled the rest of us to form a group. And, last but not least, thanks go to Tales and Tails for telling me about the Idita Walk it in the first place. I look forward to hearing about everybody’s experiences on the trail.
But now, I must close…The pTiny pTerodactyl and I are off to get some new walking shoes while poor Y-Bo soaks his tired paws.
