Stupid Dog, aka Munchie Bear, after his walk today.
Back in December I was taking Stupid Dog on daily 1 mile walks. He was constantly pulling and lunging and other dogs, trucks, etc. Once he somehow managed to slip the leash and actually jumped out into the road and missed being flattened by a cement truck by mere inches. And don't even ask about his reaction to motorcycles.
In short he was not a well behaved doggie on his walks, and that's without taking into account bathroom habits.
Fast forward to now with his harness & leash, a stylish brown leather imprinted with blue salamanders. He is a different, dare I say well behaved?, dog in the harness, happy to trot at my side with nary a lunge or other misdemeanor. All it took was putting the harness on, no special training or anything. I'm guessing he had worn one in his previous life with one of his first owners. So we are now back to the daily walks. Which he desperately needs because he is also fat. The walks will help that problem.
And he's still stupid too, but I don't think walks will help that condition.
Today I took a Fitness Personality quiz, which is based on the Meyers-Briggs. Based on how you answer your questions you are assigned a main color type, and then one of 4 sub types.
I am White Canvas...a Trailblazer on Familiar Paths
"Whites approach exercise as they do everything else...with planning & structure after sufficient reflection time...disciplined & independent, Whites are self-organized & attracted to physical exercise they can structure at their own pace..."
And further breaking it down I am actually a White Efficient and expect trainers to have a high level of proficiency and knowledge & will challenge them with tough questions.
So Mr. Trainer, basically do not try to pawn me off with platitudes and simplistic "answers" because I will see right through you...save your touchy-feely stuff for those White Harmonies who want to be friends. Give me a kick ass take no prisoners trainer every time.
And my personal favorite part of the analysis..."At times they may enjoy being accountable to a fitness trainer as long as they've had a role in directing the activity..."
Yep, that's me....yes Mr. Trainer I'll do what you say...as long as I've told you what that is!
