The Schulz family are pretty much the most genetically blessed in all of the land (that’s not to say they don’t work hard, because they do – In every aspect of their lives)! Even their dogs are cute as sh*t! Here are two of the ‘Fab 5’, just hanging out at CrossFit Babes Miami, pulling trucks and being generally awesome… SportsMed sponsored WOD Dogs feature athlete and dog – Clay and Rhino:
If there was one athlete / dog duo I was excited about shooting on the SportsMed sponsored WOD Dogs road trip, it was World CrossFit Masters Champ (and newly contracted athlete in the National Pro Fitness League!) – Amanda Allen, and her Irish Wolfhound X Kelpie – Pepper. It’s well publicised how much Amanda loves Pep’ (and vice versa), so I was keen to watch the dynamics between this pair and see for myself just how beautiful they are together… And, I wasn’t disappointed! When Pepper found Amanda, he certainly fell with his bum in the butter!!! In a way, these guys were like therapy to me, proving that there are extraordinary dog owners who would die for their mate if they had to. Their love for one another is like what you see in movies or read in a book… And you can read about it in my book – WOD Dogs, supporting RSPCA Qld in their fight against animal cruelty.
Aside from RSPCA Qld, there is another charity that I am extremely passionate about… Great Dane Rescue. The work that this group does is amazing and has saved and changed the lives of so many Danes for the better. Shan and I have been a part of this group for a while now, and throughout that time, have seen some horrific cases, been able to help rebuild broken bodies and broken trust, and then watched with bitter sweetness as those fosters go to their forever homes. Well, today we took the plunge and decided that we would be giving a forever home to one lucky little girl! There’s no giving this one away, and the pics will tell you why!!! Audrey ‘Crash’ Cooper (11wk old, Merle) has been a part of our family now for just over 4 hours and already her big brother is in love, and so are Mum and Dad!!! Thank you Clare and Great Dane Rescue. What you do can’t be put into words…
My bro, Matty Klarie is one talented man… And, equally as talented is his dog – Bugsie. They recently produced this amazing little feature film:
While we were hanging out today, Matty was having a muck around with Bugs and I caught the action. I don’t think I have seen a smarter dog and a more loving parent… And after checking out both these movies, I think you’ll agree!!!
Bugsie has his own facebook.com page >>HERE<<… Let’s make the little guy famous. Please show your support by either sharing his movie, and or jumping over to his FB page and giving him the ‘thumbs up’!
In order to share the progress of WOD Dogs, I have decided to create a Facebook Page. The aim of the page is not only to update you on the Photo-Book, but also to showcase the community spirit of the project and give the opportunity for ALL athletes of all sporting disciplines to share their love for CrossFit/Sport/Fitness/Health and their DOGS! I want to make this a world-wide collaboration and pay tribute to all the dogs out there that shape your well being, make your box a happier place to train, never miss a game, are a mascot to your team, bark and cheer you on to get you through a gassy METCON or heavy set, that make your world the best world… That are your world. I want you to share your best, funniest and most creative pics with me and the followers of this project, to give inspiration and happiness through the amazing things you and your dog can do together!
