So we have a dog walker for the pup (who isn't really a puppy). The past bunch of months, they have been coming fairly late afternoon. Sometimes, after or right before I get home. If that is the case, I usually (or used to) try to change and go for my run while she is out to avoid any sad face or guilt trips if I want to get a serious run in. When I go with her it is constant stopping to pee and stuff (and then I let her pee). Most times, if she is home and just got done with a walk in the heat, I will leave her behind as well. Sometimes she guilts me into taking her which means we go for a short run. This week it has been so hot, she has had no complaints when I leave the house without her for a run or just in general. Still doesn't mean she isn't bitter when I get home!
