  • Some days are better than others...

    Maybe it was the heat, or the air pressure. Maybe it was the appeal of playing with other dogs, or geese, or ducks, or just lying in the grass. Maybe he was feeling a bit off. Maybe it was all of those, but today, after an enthusiastic start, Bogart made it clear that he didn't really want to run too fast or too far.

    So we didn't. When I'm out on the bike with Bogart his safety and happiness are the most important things. If he's not having fun, he's not going to want to go out again. And because he can't tell me directly how he's feeling, it's up to me to pay attention to how he's moving, whether he's towing me because he wants to go-go-go or whether he's panting and thirsty, or slowing down because he's tired, or distracted, or needs a pit-stop.

    So today we did a nice, lazy, slow 8km down by the river with lots of water-breaks and snacks and rest-stops and sitting in the grass having ear-scratches, and that's okay.

    Now we're both flaked out in front of a fan, sharing some cold watermelon slices. That's pretty okay too.

    This June, Hold My Beer is taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

    Why? Because right now, over 1,400 children are diagnosed with cancer every year, and it's the biggest killer of children from disease in Canada.

    Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

    So we are raising funds through our challenge to help these kids and support SickKids Foundation to allow them to continue their work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

    Please support us by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

    Your support will change little lives.

    Thank you.
