All About Scout
Ok, so let’s do an introduction to all of our pack members here at Doggone Healthy Choices.com.
First we have Scout, Yes, today it’s all about Scout…..
He is an American Foxhound mix! The American Foxhound is the breed of George Washington. So we tend to want to drop the mix when introducing him. He has the musical bay of the American Foxhound, the look, and the independence of them.
The American Foxhound was first brought about and bred by George Washington himself. The American Foxhound is known to have originated in the states of Maryland and Virginia, and is the state dog of Virginia.
Scout as we mentioned is an American Foxhound Mix. He came to Pam aka the Dog Runner via Kent Animal Shelter. When she saw the profile on their website that said “Ready to Run” she knew it was a match from that point on! And ever since it has been.
He trained to run his first marathon (26.2 miles) with Pam in May 2015 to raise money for Kent Animal Shelter. In December 2016- He was joined by Pam as well as Liberty in their marathon- which ran from Smithtown to Calverton, Long Island.
This year in 2017, Scout will be joined by Liberty, Freedom, Justice, as well as the Dog Runner in running a months worth of 5k’s ending on October 8th in PA with an organized dog friendly race. This time raising money for Paws for War in Nesconset, NY! An organization that trains and helps veterans and shelter dogs help one another through the obstacles of life. Providing service dogs to Veterans of the USA! A near and dear topic to the dog runner and her 4 American Dogs!
We will talk more about Scout, as well as his pack on this blog as time goes on. Scout just wants to bring information to his fellow canines and their humans on living a happy and healthy tail waggin’ life! So he wants you to subscribe to the right on this page to receive more updates and goodies in your email everyday we have new blogs added to our site.
Scout happens to be a Vegan dog as well. As we all know dogs are not carnivores but omnivores and like humans can sustain themselves on a plant based diet/ lifestyle. We will discuss a vegan lifestyle further as our blogs continue both for dogs and humans as well.
Until tomorrow when we introduce another pack member, we will go out and have a happy and healthy tail waggin’ day, and we hope you do the same!
