Car in the Shop

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

I couldn't go to the gym today. My car took a dump. We think it is the spark plugs. It is in the shop. It is very tired. It is a 1989 Honda and I think it is on its last legs, but we can not afford a car right now. So, it looks like it will just me and the pup on a walkies today. I always enjoy my walk, but I love the toning benefits of being in the pool. Hopefully the car will be up and running by tomorrow so I can get to my Land Zumba class.

I am sure the dog will be excited to see me put my shoes on and bring out the leash. She is getting a little older and can't walk as far and as fast as she could in her prime, but she loves going out with her mommas. Of course she has to sniff every blade of grass. She cracks me up. If she gets too much into snifferdoodle mode I have to start counting. 1, 2, 3. If I get to 5 without her doing some sort of squat she knows we have to move on. LOL It slows me down a little, but she is worth it to see her happy little sway as she wags her tail at every butterfly.

I hope everyone's week is going well. I need to start unpacking the Christmas decorations. Right now the boxes are all sitting on the floor in the dining room. I will probably get up the pre-lit tree today after dinner. I promised myself that things would be up by the first. It just goes so fast.

    Good luck with the car and have a great walk with the dog! My dogs love going for a walk, but the male acts like such a dork every walk turns into an adventure.

    My older male dog is the same. Waters every bush, wall, pole and tree. He really slows me down, so I just take him around the block, drop him off back home and continue my walk. He is a 9 year old Pom, and he is my life saver.

    Hope your car gets fixed soon.

    Have a wonderful time walking her. Love the way you have her trained. I've taken to carrying a treat with me and getting moving earns him a treat, but the countdown part sounds good. emoticon
