Now that I'm restricted to dog-walking as my only form of 'training' (due cracked ribs) our poor terrier Alf is coming in for some stick. I think he loves it, he certainly seems happy. A question though....has anyone ever worn one out? I've just upped his LSD walk to 7.5 miles in 2 hours this morning and he's still jumping up and down like he's ready for another lap. I'm gonna get him biking next and he can have my place at IM France!

By the way can I borrow the gayometer please? I'll get my coat.

Think all terriers are the same. My 9 month old Westie can run forever and still come back wanting more.

Alf is so cute though - how could you deny him if he wants to add an extra couple of miles?

did you walk him alot as a pup?

I have worn out a yorkshire terrier but he probably wasn't walked much as a pup and therefore didn't have a high level of fitness. I took him for a long walk on the beach in hail.

He slept on the sofa for the entire afternoon.

My sister's dogs on the other hand - Welsh sheep dogs on a farm so basically running around all day. They are impossible to tire.

That would completley kill my Greyhound - the laziest dog in the world - fine for short bursts, but anything longer and she is completely wasted (mind you she is nearly 11 - pretty old for a greyhound)

Mum's (not a working dog) Collie was good for about 3 miles but would start flagging after that & would look mightily pleased to get back! Very Happy

It was always game though, well I think it was, at least it never twigged that chewing my trainers up would stop more runs

Yep - I've seen a lot of doggy clothes and wouldn't dare be seen out with Alf wearing most of them, but the hoody? That's in a different league - COOL!

Here's another angle...



Maybe we need a new thread 'TT - Cool Dogs'

The King Charles Spaniel we used to have would get to the end of the drive and turn around expecting to get a biscuit and be let back into the house.

There really is no need for buying dogs daft clothes.

I wish someone had told that to Shell before Christmas when the new pup was subjected to this though.....

No need? Pah! I'm going to get a trisuit this year. In fact I may start manufacturing them. Just gotta phone Aquasphere to see if they can run off a doggy-sized seal mask for him.
