FitDog Friday: An Alternate Angle

Today I realized that Livvie, Kessie and I frequently walk for almost an hour a day! Split into three 20 minute walks, or other permutations, we don’t look at it as “exercise”. We think of it as fun time together, and exploring the neighborhood. And after all, Matilda did get an Explorer Dog nomination. So that might be a good incentive for walking, other than “fitness” and “exercise”, for those of us who associate those things with pain and ¬†drudgery. Not that we are sloths. We are not. We simply prefer to engage in activities that sound fun.

So, where did we go, and what did we do? Well, we looked at trees, and Kes and Liv sniffed and peed on trees. Sorry trees.

I love this walk, mom.

I peed on trees and walked a lot!

We visited a friend briefly.

We looked at more interesting trees and houses.

We went to a cafe briefly, where mom had coffee.

We contemplated life and the sky.

    Anxious to see the photos. You are right, exercise is only drudgery if you make it so. You should join PetsMove.org and log all your activities! Join the fun!

    We walk around two hours a day in 2-3 walks, but for us it is not exercise either, it is fun time. Hanging out together, sniffing, seeing, enjoying. Walking is a wonderful activity!

  3. Looks like a fun neighbourhood. Still a bit freaked out about the Halloween house though…truly scary!! Happy FitDogging….
