Dear Healthy Women,
I have been crazy busy these past few days just like all of you but I want to give you each a gift. .... a dog. Sounds crazy...yes... but when you wake up in the morning and have those big brown eyes looking at you and the tail wagging so hard it is about to fly off and the body is twisting with excitement.... how can you not go for a nice brisk walk? That is what I wake up to every morning and most mornings he's not disappointed. We walk for about three miles and enjoy the sights. He goes on sensory overload sometimes. We see wild turkeys, deer, squirrels, cats, dogs, even a coyote once. He never tires, unless it is very hot in the summer but we usually walk so early it isn't a problem. He is always ready to go day or night ...long walk or short. .. but always wants to go FAST. This walking has been a main stay for me these past few years, especially since I lost my walking partner when she moved. When I first get up and start to get dressed he's ready to go, even if I'm not. If I should try to sleep in , he comes to check on me and see what is wrong....such loyalty. If you had such a partner, you would also jump out of bed to start the day. Built in motivation. Get you an energetic Boxer and join the fun. Have a Happy Holiday season.
