Reluctant dog...

Monday, May 20, 2013

It was in the mid 80s today. Too hot by Cooper's standards. I got him to walk this morning, but this afternoon was a whole other story. Pup did not want to go any further than around the block. So, I pampered the pup, and took him for short walks. I did do a little walking without the dog though, because I was not satisfied with going around the block a couple of times.

I had a lovely visit with my aunt this evening. I don't see her all that often, as she is a very busy person. So it was nice to get a chance to chat with her. I walked Cooper over to her house, and stayed for about half an hour.

Tomorrow I have two medical appointments and some errands to run, so the exercise will have to take a back seat. I will still get in my two hours, but I might not get in much more than that. Cooper is going to my parents' for the afternoon, so I don't have to put him in his crate for all that time. One of my appointments is my annual physical, I hope the doctor is impressed with the progress I have made with my weight. I had a bunch of blood tests done about a month ago, so I will get those results back tomorrow. Hoping everything turns out well.

I hope Cooper will walk tomorrow morning!

    Yesterday it was a bit warm - I tried to have the pups walk on the grassy & sandy areas instead of the black pavement path - you would have thought I told them to fly to the moon. I have spoiled city dogs. Dirt in my toes? You must be mad!

Congrats for your improvements! emoticon

    I'm hoping you have a wonderful physical! You've earned good news from the doc!

Gypsy and Cooper are in the same boat. She laid her big butt down last night when I turned towards the walking path. I had to take her home and just go out with Tazzy. DOGS! emoticon

    Your doctor should erect a monument in your honor as a testimony to hard work, good nutrition and consistent exercise.

LOL My dog won't walk when it is hot or raining so I understand Cooper not wanting to walk in the heat. As the warm weather is back, you may have to only walk him morning and evening. I am glad you got to see your Aunt. None of mine live near enough to visit. Have a wonderful day,

    Thanks for paying attention to your pup. They can't really tell you that the heat makes them feel sick or they have a headache today unless you are listening.
