New Dog

Monday, April 01, 2013

Hi. Well, a week ago on Sunday, I adopted a stray dog after someone dumped her at a local bridge in a rural area near me. She was stranded there for 3 days. I asked around and no one claimed her. She didn't have a collar. So I adopted her and I call her Laney (lay-knee).

She is an Australian shepherd mix according to the spay clinic (got her spayed, vaccinated, and micro chipped right away). What I have discovered is she loves to walk (actually run, but I am definitely not to that level yet). She is high energy and smart. She is also very affectionate and house broken already.

So guess who suddenly is doing a lot of walking now? At first, Laney and I just walked around the field in the front yard. Yesterday I took her to a local community and she made it about a half mile. She did pretty well since she is learning to heel and is easily distracted. I am taking one longer walk with her each day now and some little walks around the field. It is about an hour per day so far. Definitely getting my exercise as last night I did some stationary biking also. I would not call my walks with Laney aerobic. They are more like strolls. Wish me well with my new dog Laney.

Hope you have a blessed day!

P.S. I have been sticking to the new eating plan and losing about 2 lbs. per week. Woohoo!

    Aren't dogs great? When you eventually DO get up to running Laney will be a great help in keeping you going and motivated. Great job on your loss of 2 lbs! Hope everything else is going just as well!
