Okay runners, this one is for fun, post up your four-legged running buddies and favorite places to run them.

Name: Hedwig AKA "Turd Ferguson".
Breed: The mighty Vizsla
Background: Used off of KSL from some couple with a baby living in an apartment on a busy street with no fence. Free but then they did the bait and switch when they dropped him off. There is a special place in hell for that bait and switch.
Vet Bills: Sadly he is the 6000 dollar dog now. Spontaneous collapsed lung, a few nights in a oxygen chamber, MRI, countless x-rays, and some weird infection under his spine. No problems now but I keep thinking he is going to get bit by a rattlesnake.
Favorite Game: Fetch, followed by pointing chuckar, followed by trail running
Favorite Local Trails: Summer - Killyun, Upper Millcreek on odd days. Other seasons - North of City Creek by the radio towers / Rudy's Flats, and the Jordan River.

Winter run along the Jordan.

I feel you on the vet bills. I put several thousand into my last pup, until she finally passed in July (12 years old). Only 1 dog left.. He is 14 years - and still pulls me along when I take him on jogs.
