Furry Friday Feature: Calypso the Wonder Mutt (Black Dog Runs Disney)

Happy New Year, friends! I am excited to kick off Furry Friday Feature in 2017 with my old buddy Calypso the wonder Mutt. But first indulge me....

I run two blogs now and I don't like posting on Fridays on both sites. I'd rather space out posts between the sites because it makes it easier for me to share on social media. I am considering moving Furry Friday Feature to Thursdays. Furry Thursday Feature doesn't have the same ring. Tail-wagger Thursday? Dog Trot Thursday? (That sounds gross.) My running partner has a tail Thursday? Any other ideas? Maybe someone out there can come up with something better. I'll send you a "my running partner has four legs" tank top if I use your idea. 

It's Friday and I am ready for the weekend. It's been cold here in Texas but Ollie doesn't seem to mind the cold as much as I do, I guess he has that fur coat to keep him warm! He wants to run and walk more than ever while I have been wimping-out on the treadmill. It's only been cold for about a week here and I am already over it. How did I ever live in Pennsylvania? But I digress...

Meet Calypso (aka the wonder mutt) from Black Dog Runs Disney!

Tell us a little bit about your favorite running partner?

Calypso aka Wonder Mutt. She's a 6 year old rescued Lab mix (even though she thinks she ALL Lab), who lives to run, splash, get belly rubs, and basically be the queen of all things silly!

Where is your favorite place to run with your pooch?

Our neighborhood here in south Florida and the West Orange Trail just outside of Disney World in Winter Garden, Florida

Tell us about a running moment that made you proud.

The day I took Calypso running with me after I had both my knees scoped out and cleaned, and she got me my fastest mile time in years!

Tell us a funny story about Calypso

You mean other than the obsessive water jumping, dinnertime sad faces, Christmas tree ornament tail of destruction incidents and farting so badly she wakes herself up out of a sound sleep? No. No funny stories. :)

What running (or life) lesson can we learn from our dogs?

Who cares about form, time, PR's, or latest running fashions? Just run and chase squirrels!

Thanks so much Kimberley for sharing Calypso with us! What a cute face. You can follow Kimberley and Calypso on Black Dog Runs Disney or @vixen1267 on Twitter or @blackdogrunsdisney on Instagram

  1. The link to her IG isn't working. :-(

    I really like Tail Wagging Thursdays.
    Or maybe Four-Legged Thursday (no alliteration, but I kinda like it).
    I think there is a thing called Tongue-Out Tuesday, but you could make it work for Thursdays.
    Four Paws-day (instead of using the word Thursday).

    That's all I got off the top of my head. Good luck choosing! I need to fill out the form one of these days. Or have I already?! LOL.

    1. you haven't! fill out the form and I'll get you scheduled!

    2. I fixed the link - it was the Twitter one that was messed up. sorry!

  2. Nice to meet you, Calypso and Kimberly! Dogs really do make the best running partners. I'm looking forward to spring runs with my baby girl!
