Cosmo the Dog Who Hates Running

Tuesday, 21 August 2012  |  Bullish Insights

He seemed so innocent when he arrived at our home as a puppy…


We took him in and treated him like family…


We even took him with us to participate in races…


I had the impression that he loved running too. But, as you see here, when he requested to be carried by Little Miss Bull Runner during the Southridge Run, it might have been his way of boycotting running…


I believe we’ve got an anti-running hound in the house. Cosmo is cuddly and cute, he looks harmless, and, yes, we love him to pieces. But, two days ago, much to my horror, I discovered my Nike Free 7.0 all chewed up, its laces torn into three.

This was my Chosen Shoe: the shoe I used for Ironman 70.3 Cebu and the one I was planning to wear for Berlin Marathon among all my other running shoes. ¬†They’re irreplaceable because they’re an old model that isn’t available locally anymore. ¬†Double sigh.


The culprit for such a heinous crime?

No other than Cosmo, the anti-running dog. This was how he looked when I confronted him. Looks guilty eh?!
