So if you’ve dabbled in the CrossFit world, looked at affiliate websites, visited other boxes (that’s CF slang for CrossFit gyms), or even hung around CFK long enough, you are bound to have seen some dogs. Here at CrossFit Ktown you may have met Gibson, Coach G’s Sheltie. It’s also possible to have encountered Domino, Avi, or Dolce, the pack of lab/aussie shepherd sisters. And most recently, the little puppy Bella, brought in by Blake Gibson, has been noticed tinkling in CFK.

So why do CrossFits all around love dogs? Well that my friends is a good question to which I can offer no real insight. I can, on the other hand, postulate. First, dogs are playful, entertaining, and energetic, and after some girl WODS the amusement dogs provide may come in handy. Also, dogs ease tension and quickly become part of the family. What does CrossFit do other than get people insanely fit? Well, it promotes a social and family atmosphere. So why not throw a few dogs in the mix to bring people together.  Additionally, dogs are very protective of their families. Now think about some prevalent populations that make up CrossFit: military personnel, firefighters, policemen and women, and first responders. Yes, our very own “protectors.” Lastly, several kinds of dogs are bred for work, and we know how much CrossFitters love hard work.

There are my theories on why CrossFits love dogs. It may have just been a load of bull. Probably.

Dogs rule and cats drool,

    why dogs are better than cats:
    Burglars don’t tend to be put off by cats meowing
    They don’t spit up hair balls on your new sofa
    They can save peoples lives when they are in danger. Cats wouldn’t, they just care about themselves
    Dogs scratch themselves, cats scratch you

    just a few reasons

    When you give a dog a treat it thinks you’re a god, when you give a cat a treat it thinks itself a god.

    I have a five year old lab mix named Riley and Rachael has a 9 month old lab/border collie mix named Coach. They are definitely entertaining and full of energy. Maybe one day they will stop in for a tinkle err.. I mean visit. =o)

    Have you ever seen a cat catch a drug runner?

    I want the dogs to do the next metcon where I have to run with me. Also, about the metcon today, Blake I guess the 97th DU is the hardest.

    If I brought Doozer to CFKT, he would immediately get his name atop each of the max categories, do a sub-15 metcon of Angie but with muscle ups, handstand pushups, glute ham situps, and 200lb overhead squats…

    …and then he would likely throw Grant through a plate glass window.
