Look What Followed Me Home...

I got up at 6:30 this morning to go on a 6 mile run, but unfortunately I didn't get very far. Since moving back to TN, I haven't made any local friends who run so I obviously don't have a running partner. Instead, I run with my dog, Kenai. We had only a little over a mile this morning when a big dog ran up to us. Of course Kenai got really excited and started jerking me around. I yelled at the dog to go home but it paid me no attention. It kept following us and Kenai kept pulling so I decided to make it a short speed day instead of a long run. We turned around at the mile mark and the other dog followed us all the way home! It kept running out in the road and I was really worried that it was going to get hit so I let it in the basement.
It was such a sweet dog when I set down on the ground, it climbed up on my lap! So when Aiden woke up, I let him see the dog. He laughed and said, "Mommy! It's Lady!" I have no idea where that came from! We've been reading a book that has Lady and the Tramp in it, but that dog looked nothing like Lady! So funny!

When Matt got up, he let "Lady" and Kenai outside and Lady ran away. I was so upset! The dog probably belongs to someone and I knew that we couldn't keep it, but it really worries me that it's going to get hit by a car. I kept looking out the window for it to come back, but it never did. I really hope it finds its way home! :(

This has nothing to do with your post, but I noticed your bookshelf on your side bar and you are currently reading All Together Dead and have read some of the previous Sookie Stackhouse books. I just wanted to say that I LOVE them and just finished All Together Dead yesterday! I cannot wait to start the next one! Hope you are enjoying it! Btw, I also have a son named Ayden (obviously spelled different) and he's 4... have a GREAT weekend!

I would imagine that it is difficult to find a running partner when you are running so many miles. How long does it usually take you to run 6? I'm glad you have a dog to take with you. It was very kind-hearted of you to embrace the new tag-a-long while he was with you.
