about walking your dog, so I’m going to say it.
First off, who the hell decided it should be 80+ degrees in JANUARY, because I’d really like to ask them what the hell they were thinking.
But that isn’t my point. Over the last couple of days, I’ve decided to start a REAL exercise routine, including taking a 1/2 hour walk everyday with one of my dogs. I figure I could use the fresh air and I hardly ever play with the dogs otherwise, so I figure this is a good way to get my exercise in and spend time with my dogs.
Lets just say its been an interesting experience. I would advise anyone who is thinking about getting a dog, particularly a medium to large size dog, to get that dog TRAINED. I spent most of yesterday afternoon dragging this wonderful animal:
back to my side as she tried to go and say hello to every dog in the neighborhood.
Today, I decide to take this one:
because she tends to be a bit more calm.
But nooo, she had to go and be a pain in the butt, dragging me every which way to smell all the new smells she was experiencing, and leaving a few of her own. Eww.
So yea, unless you feel like being walked by your dog instead of walking your dog, I would get them trained.
In other news, I am as sore as all get out, but I actually FEEL GOOD. I have (some) energy and have managed to stay pretty productive all day, which isn’t really that normal for me. I tend to veg in front of the computer for hours on end and not do anything, so it felt good to get up and move around and actually DO stuff. Plus, I’m sure my mom is going to appreciate coming home and finding out that she doesn’t have to do the dishes =)
