Remembering that each day I put myself first, by choosing a more healthy lifestyle, is a GIFT to myself -- by which the people I love, then become great beneficiaries also. It's a win win for all of us:)

It's horrifying!! I have heard that some cultures eat dogs but it creeps me out.

Don't eat dogs. Run with them. If your dog is fat enough to look edible then you aren't getting enough exercise.

From Wikipedia:

"There are two different theories as to how the Chow Chow got his name. Chow, or 'chou', is Chinese slang for edible. Will Judy, author of "The Chow Chow," wrote that the name meant 'edible dog of China'. In 1878, a British historian and authority on China claimed to have found 25 restaurants in Canton featuring chows on the menu. In 1915, a law was passed in China prohibiting the buying and selling of dog meat. The word chow means food in English, and the shipments of spices and mixed pickles from China became known as chow chow, as did a spicy pickle relish.[citation needed]

The other theory of the name chow chow may not be as logical, but is still reasonable enough for debate. In the early 1800s, clipper ships sailed from China to England, bringing back a various assortment of cargo, referred to as chow chow. These miscellaneous objects were stored in the ship's hold called the chow chow hold, chow chow meaning bits and pieces of this and that. The first chow chow dog appeared in England in the 1830s, and was known as the chow chow dog because he had been housed in the chow chow hold during the long voyage. The proud and regal chow we see today is more a product of what happened to the Chow in England and eventually the United States than the ancient Chinese chow of working origin who is seldom seen even in China today."

Honestly? They were originally bred for their meat. I wonder if its Beachy or not.

The neighbor's sloth dog is a Chow. I wonder what they are bred for. Biting? I think they are the number one dog to bite if I'm not mistaken. We are lucky he's too lazy to get on his feet or we might be dead meat. The other dog that peed on his treat is a blue healer.

English bulldogs were bread for the couch. They only walk for food.

We just came in from splitting wood. We didn't even put a dent in the wood pile. I haven't stacked it yet. Pushing the wheelbarrow back and forth should count. It took 45 minutes to split, don't know how long to stack, probably about the same.

Send Corky or Hoss. I live too far from a shelter. 12 miles.

I try to get the neighbor's dogs to walk with me but they think I'm crazy too. LOL. I have tried luring them with treats and one of them hiked his leg and peed on the treat I gave him. Guess it wasn't THAT good. My husband and I died laughing. ROFLMBO. We have lazy dogs here, just like their owners. I have never seen one of the neighbors dogs ever leave the yard. He looks like a yard ornament. LOL.

Remember that your walking buddy doesn't have to be human. Take the dog for a walk. If you don't have a dog, borrow one or volunteer with a shelter or rescue group. Tonight we are walking our dogs which includes "Corky" the foster dog, plus a new rescue named "Hoss". Hoss has been living in a cage for four months. No doubt he'll be happy to get out, no matter the temperature.

I'd like to be your neighbor, Morti. The only way you can get someone to walk with you is to ask someone that's walking. You can ask 500 people and they'll all tell you no.

We have snow and it's 21 degrees and windy. I'd have to hold a gun on my neighbors to get them out there. They think we are crazy and ask us why we walk all the time. We have invited some of them and they have more excuses that Carter has little liver pills. Wimps. emoticon


So it will just be me today. Hubby would go with me if he were home. Think of me out there, all by my lonesome, tracking through the woods, while you have fun with your pals. Sniff, sniff. emoticon emoticon

Thanks Kierae - I'll probably do this with a friendly adaptation. We'll have a foot of snow by the end of the day and I have lots of sidewalk and driveway to snow blow and to shovel. I'll wear my pedometer to see how many steps! emoticon Maizey

Happy Tuesday to you!

Your challenge today is to GRAB A FRIEND, FAMILY MEMBER, OR CO-WORKER AND GO FOR A WALK. This is a perfect opportunity to:

*Get your neighbor to start that morning exercise routine
*Work off frustrations from the job by walking at lunch with your co-workers
*Get the family out of the house for some exercise

Exercising with others makes your "tough workout" MUCH EASIER to manage. Besides, IT IS FUN!

Have a great Tuesday!
