If your dog is fatÖ

Thursday, September 02, 2010

Ever heard that old saying that if your dog is fat, you need to get more exercise? I wonder if the dogs have a similar sayingÖ.If your human is fat bring her your leash more often! I have 4 dogs and amazingly none of them are overweight, I work hard on getting them enough exercise and feeding them right but it doesnít always include exercise on my part. So why donít I do that for myself? Because failing myself doesnít feel nearly as bad as failing them. They canít take care of themselves. If I donít fill the water bowl they go thirsty, if I donít fill the food bowls they go hungry, if I donít give them a bedtime treatÖ.they stare at me with big sad doggie eyes until I feel I should apologize for being such a failure as a parent!
So, hereís my challengeÖcan I treat myself like I do my pets? Love myself enough to eat the best food, get plenty of exercise and find those sunny patches on the floor to take a nap now and then? Iím going to give it a shot. And I know Iíll have at least 4 partners who will be ecstatically supportive about my new walking regimen!

    Great blog, and you will do it!
There's nothing like an enthusiastic walking partner to keep you motivated. Having 4 makes it all the better!!

    You deserve to be treated like your dogs! Go for it.
P.S. If I could find a sunny patch on the floor, I'd love to curl up for a good nap, lol!
