Winter Challenges

Bunny here at the keyboard with a few fitness challenges to share.

Most of you know that I have a big race with Pip tomorrow.  I've been doing a lot of training to get myself into racing form.  It's not easy maintaining your figure when there are all these dog bakery treats and pup cakes around, but I've been motivated. 

Anyroo, I came across a couple of challenges that I thought I'd share with all of you.  One of them is the Idita-Walk.  It's a physical fitness challenge that you can do with your humans.  Basically, you try to walk for thirty minutes for thirty five days between February 1 and March 31, for a total of 1049 minutes, which is the amount of miles between Anchorage and Nome, Alaska.  The focus is just to get out and walk with your humans a little every day.  You and your human can both register.  So far I've logged in sixty minutes.  If anybody out there wants to join in, we'd love to share notes!

The second one is shorter and has to do with a big event that a lot of people are all excited about here in the States on Sunday.  That would be Super Bowl Sunday.  I'm going to be honest, I don't care who wins, but I do enjoy watching the commercials.  Especially the funny ones where the dogs outsmart the people, like that Doritos ad from last year.  Anyroo, Subaru has had some funny commercials with dogs this year and now they have the Subaru Game Day Dog Walk Event.  It's simple, sign up and pledge to walk your dog on game day and you get some cool loot.  So, see if you can get your humans off the couch and paying attention to you for a bit on Sunday!

I hope these ideas help you to get your people motivated to get out there with you and enjoy a little bit of winter weather.  It's fun as long as you dress for it and you don't overdo it.  Now, I'm off for my pre race nap.  Wish me luck for tomorrow!

    Them Suburu commercial crack me up. Especially da one wheres da cat takes da parking spot.


  7. We're all hopping about from paw to paw and foot to foot with anticipation here, Bunny, waiting to see your glorious triumph. Pace yourself, get some moderate training to stay limber, and rest well so you can be you best. xx

  8. Go Bunny Go!.......We loves how your Mom's coat matches your coat. We are going to check out those walking sites. We aren't sure if we can get our Mom off the couch though. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

  9. Good luck at the race tomorrow Bunny!
    and thanks for sharing the info, we are going to look into it:)

  10. You're even dressed for the Idita-walk, Bunny! But, I have to admit, I've never seen any of the sled dogs in pink. That's your own special touch!

    I feel the same way about the Super Bowl. I do love the Puppy Bowl though. However, we don't get the Animal Planet now so I don't think that we can watch it :(

  11. Good luck, Bunny!!!

    We hope it's a win win race!

  12. Can't wait for the race! I've got my beer on ice and my cheeto's waitin'!

  13. Hi Bunny! I see that you got your 'hu man' to dress like you in matching colors! Greyt job....I just love how we control these 'hu mans'!! I just learned how to steal the keyboard from my hu man because she showed me your post and I think its really cool!

  16. Good luck Bunny. We will post about it tomorrow

  17. Oh, Bunny, your human is so good to take you out walking. My dogs and I tried to walk in our parking lot yesterday, but it is so icy I ended up carrying two of them back in while Wall-E slid and jumped back to the porch!

  18. This is a great idea, my mom needs some serious motivation. I am not really much help in this department.

    Now, I am confused - here you are in the cold, but I just saw you in the Cayman Islands on Puddles blog. Are you trying to pull some kind of last minute switch-a-roo?

    Your pal, Pip

  19. Good luck with the race! I can't believe how fast time has flown. I know you will do awesome. May the fastest doggy win!

  20. We are looking forward to the big race tomorrow Bunny.
    Those were some good ideas to motivate humans - they can be sooooo lazy sometimes.

  21. How did this happen, we just thought we saw you in the beautiful warm sunshine of the Cayman Islands, and now here you are in the snows. You really are fast, Bunny. Good luck tomorrow - we sure are hoping for an interesting win-win because we love both you AND Pip.

    We have our paws crossed and Mom is saying her prayers for little Twix, we are all very worried about her.

  22. Mom signed us up to walk on Sunday. We saw your training with Puddles.

    Good luck tomorrow!


    Mr. Nubbin'

  23. and it's important you and your human match in workout gear! wow you two look great. i'm gonna look into the itida walkie thingie too cuz we walk EVERY single day for over an hour anyway!

    i heard morgan wants to watch Loki's um, ethics over here in CH... she's welcome to come! we need another girl to keep him in line while juno takes care of herself! morgan looks like she could easily do the job.

    and bunny, it would be our pleasure to serve you 2nd dinner nightly!

  24. Good luck for the race tomorrow!
    Hope you win, Bunny!

  25. I like the walking idea, and I like how you and your mom have matching coats. Good luck on your race. I hope you're also getting airlifted out of the snow.

  26. Well you know we are quite the walking family, so we salute you. Best of luck in the racing adventures.

  27. Oh Dear Bunny, I do wish you the best of luck tomorrow for your race! Just remember back to your racing days and dream of small furry things to chase!

  28. Bunny, you look like you are in fine form. Roooo-ting for you from Oregon.

  29. We're cheering for you, Bunny! Loving those socks/boots, too, I bet they are really warm. But are you going to have race with them on???

  30. Thanks for linking up. Have an awesome weekend and be sure to stay warm!

    Felissa, Davinia, and Indiana

  31. Looking forward to the race - hope I don't miss it. The Boy Of The House would love to stay up to watch the Superbowl - but it's on WAY too late over here and he's got school Monday morning.

  32. I can't believe how nicely Bunny walks with her boots on! We tried them, but even in snow our guys act like the ground is on fire or something so they can't put their paws down!


We love hearing your comments!
