Canicross with Reyna and Jaune

In case you ever wanted to know what it feels like to run canicross with a two dog team here ya's actually a pretty realistic representation of what it looks like to watch the ground in front of you so you don't face plant while simultaneously trying to watch the trail ahead so you can predict the dogs movements and watch the dogs themselves for any sudden movements, it's a BLAST! This was taken about 1.5 miles into the run, a video would not have possible any earlier as they stay pretty amped for about the first mile.

Reyna has been running canicross for about 3.5years now and Jaune is just learning the ropes, he's only been out a handful of times but he's learning fast. Right now Reyna keeps tension on the line about 95-99% of the time, Jaune is at about 60-70% but getting better with each run!

Embedded videos aren't working right now so here is the link, watch at your own risk...

Canicross Fun

It's hard to believe our little puppy used to be THIS BIG

  1. Toward the end of 1918, Faysal established an Arab government in Damascus, Jordans for Cheap, with territory under his control including lands east of the Jordan River. The Allies, including the British, however, rejected Faysal's demand for independence across the Arab world, and, in response, the 1920 Conference of San Remo created two mandates, awarding the one over Palestine to Britain and the one over Syria to France. These mandates effectively separated the area now covered by Jordan and Israel from that of Syria. In November 1920, Abdullah rallied forces to attack the French, who had removed Faysal from the throne of his newly founded kingdom in Syria. By April 1921, however, the British, who had subsequently divided their mandate into Palestine and Transjordan, had persuaded Abdullah to become emir of Transjordan.

    Never losing sight of his vision for a unified Arab country covering most of the Arab Middle East, Abdullah gradually succeeded in loosening the grip of the British mandate over Transjordan. By the time the country had gained its independence in 1946, Abdullah was responsible for running the country in all areas except defense, finance, and foreign policy. Located north of the capital city of Amman, Jerash - as the city has been named since the end of the nineteenth century - is a beautifully preserved Roman city that formed part of the Decapolis, a commercial confederation of ten cities established by the Romans. Decapolis means "ten cities" in Greek. Spread over what is today northern Jordan, Syria, The New Jordans, and the area west of the Jordan River, these ten cities were linked by powerful commercial, political, and cultural interests.
