Tazzy is Borg! Resistance is futile!
See when I was sick, Gypsy didn’t let Tazzy bug me about walking. By the time I could have started again, Tazzy was resigned to not going. So she has been looking and giving me puppy eyes about it, but in the end giving up. Now we have walked/ran the last two nights (Tues and Wed) and we were getting back into a groove. Or at least Tazzy thought so.
Last night was cold. It was snowing and the sidewalks were iced over. I decided that “for the sake of safety” we should stay home (how is that for an excuse?!?). I determined that I would have something to eat and play a video game while hubby taught his kung fu class (his studio is in the front of our home).
Tazzy, however, was having none of this. She started by simply sitting in front of me staring. She moved on to soft “woofs” and head tilting. Then the commando crawl under the tray table and head in my lap, add very pathetic “huff”. When none of this got me off the couch, she literally stole the controller out of my hand! She ran to the leashes and dropped it!
All I could do was laugh. And now that I was up, she was right. I got changed into the warmest garb I could, walked through kung fu class, and out the front door.
I’m not entirely certain either of us knew what we were in for. When Tazzy walked on the sidewalk it was like walking Bambi in the beginning of the movie and a few ice spin-outs. I barely held my balance 3 times. We didn’t do the normal trail; I didn’t trust us not falling out in the middle of no-where. So we walked around town. Ended up doing 2 miles in 30 minutes. Not bad for walking on a skating rink!
So I guess, I’m back to exercise. It is a good thing, I know that.
Now to get the food under control!
