4 hour dog walk w/ some runs mixed in. a good mile w/ the pups in there towards the end. they are in such good shape. they are knocked out right now tho.. :ninja:

two huge bull mastiffs came out of someone's yard and started sniffing james. i picked up gizmo immediately -> because he snaps. last thing i want is him snapping at a dog like that. james is good tho because he's more submissive, so he just cowers while they sniff him. glad that they were nice dogs. kinda scary tho. that's the only problem with having such small dogs, worry about them too much. one day maybe i'll get some ridgebacks, but i guess then you have to worry about them not hurting a smaller dog. can't win. at least i wouldn't worry about them getting crushed tho. i do have my knife on me just in case. 8|

Damn! Bull mastiffs are huge! There's one near my place that's behind a rickety wire fence and it goes nuts everytime I walk my dog past. Makes me nervous AF.

Ridgebacks are a great dog though. Still pretty huge. I used to have an Akita when I was growing up. He was about 60kgs but an absolute softie. Best thing about big dogs is no one ever bothers you when you're walking them. Mine now is only about 35kgs but he's quite tall and people cross the road to avoid us lol.

another crank sesh with the pups. they run better when we are heading home. if we're nowhere near home, they try to hold back.. well, gizmo does more-so, because he'd rather be sniffing things. james loves to run. they still run good but, when we're heading home, they crank it up hard and can sustain 13-14 mph for 400m or so. lol.

some good runs with the dogs. they ran great.

2020-02-16

walk/run

first run w/o the dogs in 5 months. just did some "hard" 400-800's. 5x or so. then very light jog home, ~1 mile.

will probably try to do one of those a week (sat or sun).

just thought this was cool. i mean nils has a strong presence in the dunk game. if he says one of my dunk mixes is top 3, i'll brag about it. :ninja: :ninja: :ninja:

itsnils (nils wagner, founder of hoopmixtape)

i remember when he linked the "i promise you" dunk mix on hoopmixtape. i think he really liked the vid.. but hardly anyone else did. got a flood of thousands of haters. still cracks me up.

this made me very happy today.

first flowers on my bougainvillea baby. this one was from my first set of cuttings, 3+ months ago.

i've been wondering which ones made it.. purple? red? pink? gold? etc..

got a gold one. wonder what the other ones are.

i tons of other stuff growing too. lots of good stuff this week.

took my friend (also my boss) to the tennis match today. dad couldn't go unfortunately.

turned out to be a sick match and perfect weather.

Opelka vs Raonic

Opelka won in 3 sets. Then he had to play again 3 hours later, and won in another 3 setter.

next year i'm going to get my dad & I some court side seats, like literally on the court. that'll be cool. i'd love to watch it from that close.

the banana baby propagation continues.

my dad gave me one, now i have like 8 (5 full grown + 3 more babies getting ready to be separated).

it's crazy. you separate them, re-pot them, and there's no wilting or anything. they just adapt to their new environment immediately, no problems. that's my experience so far at least.
