Walking with dogs
Saturday, October 23, 2010
For a few weeks, my exercise was limited to walking. Although I am back to yoga and strength training, I have found I enjoy walking. I've read about lots of folks who walk with their dogs. I love our two dogs - Brigeda is a German Short Hair Pointed and Lexie is a Vizula - both weigh about 60 lbs. There is a parochial high school close to us that has quite an extensive campus with soccer fields, tennis courts and practice football fields. So I decided to take the pair with me for a walk. We were gone about 50 minutes; while they were quite excited and pulling a bit on the leashes on the way over, they were very subdued on the way back. I just took them out prior to our going out for the evening. The poor old ladies (they are both 9 years old) were more than a little stiff and slow. I think I need to take them with me more often.
