Now that the weather is nice, I started taking my dogs for a walk every morning. And let me tell you, I am so sore! I’ve worked muscles I didn’t even know I had. There is some side butt muscle that now hurts when I walk. It’s not like I am completely out of shape. I workout five times a week for at least an hour. But that didn’t prepare me for a 70lb lab and 63lb bulldog pulling on me the entire walk. The neighbors just chuckle at the site of two dogs pulling me along. And they often comment that it looks more like the dogs are taking me for a walk than me talking the dogs for a walk.
We live by a bunch of vineyards with a canal running through so I thought I could walk there and let the dogs run around. That way, they wouldn’t pull as hard on the way back. And although it was a good thought, it didn’t quit work. The bulldog, Tugg, was worn out but our lab, Skip, still had plenty of energy to pull me all the way home. And still I will get up and do it all again tomorrow because the doggies just love there walks. I mean, how could you say no to these faces?
