Mesa’s PRs:

5k: 16:58 Fast and the Furry- Race Recap

Mesa came to us by way of a Craigslist re-homing ad, totally free to a home that could keep up with her insane activity level needs. Low and behold, when she is running 50, 60, or even 70 miles a week (I’m not kidding), she is an incredibly sweet dog. We are lucky to have found her & I consider myself lucky to have found such a loyal training partner to log thousands and thousands of miles with.

Fun facts: She formally “signed” a sponsorship contract with Stunt Puppy the day before I received my first sponsorship. She’s been featured in Dog Fancy and the Subaru Magazine.

Her previous owners said it well, “I always knew she was special!”.

RIP, Mesa, Dec 2018
