Mauka says Aloha!

Posted Dec 04 2012 2:15pm
12/1/12 Sweaty Results:
Run: 3 miles happened. The first .2 of a mile felt great. Ugh. (26 minutes and change)

12/2/12 Sweaty Results: 
Run: 9.6 miles happened. (90 minutes) I found time to run but I couldn't find time to blog? THE HORROR!

Actually there's a very good reason for my absence. A very cute reason, as a matter of fact. Simply put... Brett caved

I'm so very excited to introduce you to the newest member of our clan...

Say Aloha to Mauka!
Sleeping on my lap on the way home (4.5 hours, she did awesome!)
She's FINALLY tuckered out. Oh wait, she just woke up... 
My apologies for the extended absence. Welcome to my new blog:

Almost Healthy Life with a Side of Puppy

More on Mauka because I'm a new mommy and new mommies are allowed to gush:
1. Mauka is a Mini (Blue Merle) American Shepherd. Most people still refer to the breed as Mini-Australian Shepherd but they are, in fact, their own little breed now. 
2. Mauka is pronounced mau-kuh (mau rhymes with pow). The word mauka is Hawaiian for "towards the mountain."
3. Why the name Mauka? Our late great dog, Sierra. She was a Black Lab/Blue Heeler mix and the word sierra means "mountain range" in Spanish. 

Mountain range .................... towards the mountain. You get the idea.

Today's Sweaty Sesh:
Run: Laps in our backyard with Mauka!
