My dogs keep me sane.

I agree, Jeanne. If it were not for my dogs I would not get up and walk every morning. emoticon

Our dogs go with us almost everywhere, except for the middle of the summer. They go with us on our hikes. If it wasn't for our dogs, I probably wouldn't get in the walking that I do. We walk early morning, before it gets hot during the summer. The rest of the year we an go when ever we want. It is a proven fact that dogs get us up, and out of the house, and it is good for them as well. Dogs that lay around, and get no exercise become fat. Of course, if you have a older dog with health issues, that is a different story.

A dog wags his tail with his heart.

May I always be the kind of person that my dog thinks I am.

I am in favor of getting dogs with the right energy level for you.

Weather limits my movements outside. Dogs have short walks unless the humidity and temp are safe for us all. That's my motto. Healthy choices for everyone is the way to go.

Personally I feel it is absolutely undesirable to talk about dogs as 'companions for exercise'.

An article like this promotes the idea that dogs / animals are there to serve our needs, instead of being creatures that first of all deserve our care and respect.

I want a ticker that shows how much fun I had this month!
