April is a great Great Pyr. She is huge and clumsy and lazy an she is my best friend.
On the topic of running: April never runs (except when cats are in sight). The idea of getting a dog in order to improve my lifestyle (long walks 3 times a day, jogging along the beach etc.) never really worked. However, I wouldn’t change a thing :-).
So the running goes on despite April rather than because of her. On the positive end, she is a great fan and never forgets to give me a warm welcome when I return from my workout, no matter how sweaty I am.
Update on 14 April 2012: April passed away yesterday. Luckily, I am not alone – I am running with V now and together, we decided to form a mini-running team “AprilRuns.” It is our tribute to our fantastic dog.
