Walk that doggy

Thursday, November 15, 2012

I was a little easier on the pup today, and only walked him 7.8 miles. That was over two walks. It was still quite chilly for our walks today, but the sun was shining, so it didn't seem as frigid as does when it rains. The local FedEx and UPS delivery drivers have started waving to us when they see us out walking, and stop to pet Cooper when they deliver a package to my apartment. He is such a sweet pooch!

I decided since the weather has definitely turned toward winter temperatures that it was a good time to make another pot of chili con carne. I made a big pot this afternoon and had two servings for dinner. Even with that I was still under on my calories for the day. I will probably eat chili every day through the weekend. lol!

My running buddy is back from Hawaii, and we have tentative plans to go out tomorrow morning. I don't know if we are walking or running, but either way it will be nice to have human company for a change. I have company on Tuesdays when my niece walks the dog with me, but she spends most of the time complaining, so I don't really enjoy it much. She is 12 years old, that is just what she does. *sigh*

    My mail lady stops when she Dora dog and I out walking and gives Dora a treat. All the walking I do with Dora has been really good for both of us. People who don't know how long I have had her are amazed thet she is over 12 years old. She's a little slower than she used to be, but still loves our long walks.

    Your niece may complain during the walks, but you are helping her learn the value of an active life. Keep it up!

    I know Cooper appreciates your company, even when he doesn't want the walk!

    You are getting things back and that is awesome. Let us know how things go with your running partner!

    I am glad you are getting out there walking. You inspire me and you are taking good care of Cooper.

    Cooper must be the best walked dog around. Worked late today, didn't get a walk in today.

    It was bitter cold today! I didn't even walk my dogs! Chili would have been perfect today! It's supposed to be more of the same for a few days so at least you're ready. Cooper is adorable!

    So happy to see you are enjoying your walks. I never thought I would love them, nor did I think I would go crazy when I can't wa
