I have mentioned before that wheaten terriers are special. Special of course is a relative term, however, when it comes to our little boy, I think it means goofy special. He’s unique in that he has been able to make us laugh every day, and there’s certainly something special about that. Last night Andy and I arrived home, the wife was treadmilling as usual, and Andy decided he’d like to join her. The video below shows what happens next.
I’m not sure if Andy is the first soft coated wheaten terrier to share a treadmill with his owner, but I’d argue he might be the cutest. But that’s just me.
Honestly, I think this could be an incredible exercise tool for him. There’s no reason he couldn’t get a representative workout using the treadmill. Of course we plan on walking him often, but in the event that it snows, rains, or there’s another superstorm, the treadmill could be our wheaten’s new best friend. He seems intrigued by it now, which contributes to his willingness to hop on and take a jog. But the puppy mind of a wheaten terrier is extremely impressionable. So much so that I’m confident we can make him the first wheaten to keep up with the kenyan dogs at the local park. Stay tuned for updates on that front.
