Great workout on Monday; Stray dog update.
I was in such a rush yesterday morning that I forgot to mention what an outstanding leg workout I had on Monday. After a week of pretty uninspired training, it felt good to get in the gym and kill it again. I am doing a lot of single leg work right now, including Bulgarian Split Squats, which are just killer. For Monday’s workout I supersetted the Bulgarians with single-leg calf raises. The calf raises are one of the few isolation exercises I’m doing right now.
Follow up to the stray dog I mentioned in yesterday’s blog. I set off on my bike and spent quite a bit of time riding around in the large section of vacant land across the street from my house. No sign of the dog. I also rode all around the neighborhood and didn’t spot her anywhere.
When I got home I put a bowl of food and water on the driveway, and I kept a close watch out on the security cameras. Around noon the dog came around, but I must have been distracted with work or something because I completely missed seeing her.
When I went outside around 1:00 PM I saw that the food was all gone! I reviewed the security camera footage and sure enough right around noon she came flying out of the woods and ran up our driveway. She walked past the food and right up to our front porch. She sniffed around a little bit (maybe she smelled Loki?), and then laid down on the cool brick pavers for a 10 minute rest. After her rest she walked over to the food and ate every bite.
I posted a still (above) from the front porch camera. She is definitely some sort of pit mix, maybe with some lab or golden? She reminds me so much of Turtle, who was a Pit/Shar-Pei mix. I really want to help her, because if animal control catches her she’s not going to last long thanks to her breed. If Loki gets along with her OK, I’d definitely keep her.
Hopefully she’ll come around again today…
