My Thoughts On The Rad Dog Release N Run Leash

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a Release N Run Leash for free from Rad Dog in consideration for a gear review. All opinions are mine and honest in nature

If you've been anywhere near me, then you know that Miles is a huge part of our lives. If you haven't met Miles, here is a picture of him when he was just a baby pup. Miles is a Mountain Cur.



Now, he will be 2 in December, and he's still just as adorable. He thinks he's a huge lap dog. He loves to lay on the back of the couch. It's ridiculous, but we love him.

Instead, I started laughing as I took a look in the rearview mirror. What I saw was a red face, almost purple, with patches of salt and salt streaks, with a smile so big – yes, I am a Runner – and that is a beautiful thing.
