Well happy birthday to my puppy! Actually, I'm not sure what day is is actual birthday as he is a rescue dog. We chose Halloween because it seems to coincide with his "monster" personality. But as anyone knows who reads my blogs I love him to death! He's a great dog and a great companion. He is very high energy, very playful and still all puppy, and I hear that I only have about five more years until he 'begins" to calm down. That being said, I have him to thank for my weight loss over this past year. if I wasn't forced to take him out to walk and run off some of his energy every day I would have found multiple excuses as to why I "didn't have time" to get out to exercise. Every day I come home from work, change my clothes and put on my sneakers and he is by the door waiting more than ready to go for out three mile walk and on weekends it's usually longer. Strangely enough, that has been the biggest contributor to my fitness and now it has become second nature. Every day I look forward to my walks that are usually through the woods or on a nature trail with my best friend, my motivator, my exercise companion and my reason for success!! Happy Birthday Gibby!! You're the best!
PS That's my daughter in the photo... she loves him too!
