How simple…I'm a genus!

Monday, November 25, 2013

WOW I’m a genus - NOT! I had to take the dog out and yes sometimes this is a real pain but… this morning a emoticon went on in my head. DAH I have to be out so why not make the best of it so instead of a quick “in & out” for her I decided to make it into a 10 minute SPARK!! WOW see - how ingenues that was hu?

I’m sure my neighbors, if looking, thought I had completely lost it. Every time she would stop to sniff or go to the bathroom (ha ha - didn’t have a better choice of words here) I would walk in circles around the leash. I’m sure I looked like a complete nut case lulu but…I SPARKED a 14 minute walk - emoticon

    Hey, Good for you! Good for your getting some exercise in while you're taking your dog out. (My daughter's dog has her getting walking in that she otherwise wouldn't. I wish my cat would go for a walk...)

    emoticon Yes, I am sure that your neighbors did think you may have "lost it" emoticon but I do think it was a very good idea. Talk about a fun workout.

    I'm sure you will both be feeling better for taking a little more time out there. Next thing you will be adding squats and stretches to your dog's natural pauses.
    I hate to see people dragging their dogs around on their walks, almost as much as I hate to see dogs dragging their people around. Enjoy your outside sparking.

    Maybe it's just as well that Lexie can take or leave a walk! I know; I know I should take her for a daily walk. BUT, I can just see me; walking with Lexie and having a cane in the other hand, and walking around the leash while she goes. When it's cold and bad weather; she just wants to do her business and back in the house. LOL ! emoticon

    Great idea ! I made sure I got 20 min while grocery shopping yesterday, never stopped moving, even if it looked weird.

    Congrats. It is cold in the morning here in Mesa AZ and I do not have a dog so I do not HAVE to go out until its time to leave for work. Nice way to fit in some extra " move it" time ! emoticon
