Welcome to Fitness and Character!
This blog was a long time coming, and quite frankly a big procrastination on my end! For future posts, I will share workouts, law school successes and blunders, #sweatpink news, puppy updates, coffee reviews, and vegetarian recipes. This year I started working for Fit Approach (home of the #sweatpink community) again after a year away, moved to Colorado for law school at University of Denver law, and fell in love with the best dude ever, Alex! 2016 brought a lot of societal negativity, however its been an amazing personal year. To top of 2016, this Christmas I received the best gift, a one-year old puppy, named Holly.
My boyfriend, Alex, and I rescued Holly from the Denver Animal Shelter! For anyone in the Denver area looking to add a pup/kitty to the household, I highly recommend adopting from the Denver Animal Shelter. The staff is amazing, volunteers rock, and we are extremely happy with the care they gave our pup! After a few months of dreaming of getting a puppy and deciding to move in together, we met Holly and instantly fell for her. I mean who couldn’t love that smile and cute ear freckles?!
Holly has brought many laughs, pride, ‘poop parties’, early morning wake up calls, and constant energy! Although she got a surgery (spayed) the day before we met her and is in recovery mode, she is recovering fast and not letting a little rest keep her down. We’ve made it out for a few short and calm walks around the neighborhood and park, as well as indoor play with her new basket of toys. With the goal to gain five pounds, she is a growing and hungry puppy!
Growing up, my family always had dogs – mostly labs. Coming into my own in a new city, law school, work, and relationship, made me excited to bring a pup into my life. Holly has a constant bond with Alex and I, and will be an amazing running bud (her leash skills are improving every day), and a loving snuggle bug for two big snugglers!
Here are a few fun facts about Holly:
- One year old rescue pup from the Denver Animal Shelter
- Judged to be a German Short Hair and Lab Mix (but DNA is not completely known yet)
- Loves to run, chase geese, chew on water bottles, & eat peanut butter out of her Kong
- Rocks a pink collar, leash, and harness (because she is a #sweatpinkpup)
- Instagrams at @hollythepupster
- Finds trouble by jumping on counters, stealing coffee beans, and standing in the tub
- Gives hugs and kisses to strangers
- Hates being cold, loves blankets
We are very excited and thankful to welcome Holly the Pupster to our household. I can’t wait to run with her every morning and evening at WashPark when she is fully recovered! But for now, we eat, sleep, walk, and cuddle!
Stay tuned! Woof.
