Myra Spurgin has traded in her water aerobics class for chasing her rambunctious puppy around the yard and down the block.

I miss my water aerobics classes, which are canceled while exercise facilities are all closed. Luckily, these days I get my heart rate up by chasing the newest member of our family, Bode!

This Cockapoo arrived in our home in early April, when he was 8 weeks old. He’s doubled in size to a whopping 11 pounds. We are sticking close to home until he is fully vaccinated and we’re not quarantined.

Bode, pronounced “beau-dee,” loves to play fetch, eat everything in the backyard and get belly rubs. He even has his own Instagram account: @bodethecockapoo.
