The dog walks so slowly in the morning. I try to mosey at her speed, for her sake, but it makes me laugh. It’s not the opposite of exercise, but I swear, it kind of feels like it. When we used to walk, my heartrate would go up. I would come home feeling sweaty and like we’d done something.
Now we walk the same distance and I feel relaxed, like we’ve just done some mild stretching. Other than just getting to spend some time together and enjoy the morning, I’m not sure it does any good.
After your walk together you may need to walk on your own to get the needed exercise. Of course you’ll have to endure sad doggie eyes and reproachful looks for leaving her behind.
A slow walk is better than no walk. It takes my fat little dog forever to walk the perimeter of our yard.
The dog is too old for the VMAs.
