I try to run in the morning at least two or three days a week, and usually I take Joe with me. He loves to do it and gets very excited. We usually go down the street a few blocks and run along side the bay on the path that they’ve provided for bikers, walkers and runners.
Inevitably, Joe always needs to poop at some point during the run. His pooping preferences require that he back up on some tall grass (the taller the better I think) and then let it go. I can only assume that he does this because he’s worried about some one or some other dog coming up behind him while he’s indisposed and vulnerable? Any way you look at it, it’s funny to look at.
