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.

    I used to love walking, but now I'm too stiff and have poor circulation to my legs, so walking has become an ordeal. I sympathize with your 'old ladies'!

    Glad you're enjoying walking your girls! I take my dogs with me (a 50 lb pit and 80 lb lab) and they pull at first also...however, I'm the stiff, slow old lady at the end of it! emoticon emoticon

    Before long they will be all excited by you just putting on your tennis shoes! My Bailey nudges his leash when he wants to go out and walk. He loves it!
