My Two-Speed Pup

For Penny, her leash is like a fuse. Once it goes off, my little firecracker shoots off at full speed. Eko is a bit more circumstance.

He always begins our beach trips at a cool 0 mph

While Penny unleashes mayhem, Eko often stands stoically by my side. Then, for reasons which aren’t always clear to me, Eko decides it’s time to flip the switch.

He announces himself with a big pounce and then takes off

Eko usually flies down the shore on his own, running for running’s sake

He’s happiest when he reaches top speed and really blows his ears back

I love watching Eko gallup

Eko’s romps end as suddenly as they begin. Never with a trot or a jog – always with a skid and a spray of sand

Then the dial is turned right back to zero

Two speeds may not seem like a lot, but it’s double what Penny has! Anyone else have “lightswitch” pup with only two settings?
