Take your dogs for a Walk!

I dont know why I dont do this everyday, but I should. Its been in the 80's here the last few days. So yesterday and today I took Goldie and Stogie on a long walk. All I have to do is say the Walk word, and they go nuts. They race to the front door and get SO excited.

WHY do I not take them all the time? Its good for them and its good for me. They enjoy it SOOOOO much!
So everyone take your dogs for walks. Im going to try to everyday.

Some of you may need a snow plow, did I mention it was 80 here? HAHAHAHA

Been a beautiful week so far. Think it was around 80 today here in Louisiana. I agree on taking them for walks and even runs. Everytime I get even close to the front door, Mine is ready to go outside. He loves it outside.

Being an outside person anyway, He gets to spend a huge part of the day romping in the yard. Have to watch him like a hawk though. Derian loves to chase the squirrels which hang out in our live oaks. He tried to get to a mockingbird the other day in one of the bushes, But found out real quick that Mockingbirds will not retreat LOL. When it bowed up, It was like he was saying "Please Paws, don't fail me now" LOL. His feet were wet and when he made it to the cement of the patio and tried to make a quick turn he went sliding across the cement.

I am so jealous!! I want to take my guys for a walk so bad, but cant walk due to my surgery on my foot. I probably wont be able to do it for a few more months!! Well at least by then it wont be 20 degrees anymore.

My puppy is almost three months old and has not even stepped foot on the ground outside yet. By the time he was old enough to go outside, it was way too cold. It was below 0 when we brought him home, and we have had only a handful of days above freezing since then. Hopefully, he can go play outside soon!

Wow, those nice temperatures sound so good - I am so JEALOUS!! Here in my part of Ontario it is currently 28 degrees F, thats -1C, but it is so much better than the -30 deg C, with the windchill. I just long for spring to come soon Enjoy the wonderful weather where you are, and very cute pictures too

ohh you southerners and texans!!! this is cruel. 80? But if you know of work for designers and producers--- we might relocate to a warmer climate.

Jasper loves the word Walk.... and the sentence "wanna go for a ...." we tease him and leave off the last word and he sits there wagging and wiggling and when we finally say "WALK?" he does this little jump/wiggle thing/ it's very cute--- but aren't they all...

Kodi walks. Shelby looks like a ballerina. She jumps, spins and runs. It is so cute to watch her. Then she will attack Kodi and jump on him. But we all have fun. And did someone say 80 degrees. Probably won't see that for a few months.

My dogs love, love, love to go outside. We go twice a day most days, unless it's raining. I have a great doggy park two minutes walk from my house where they play off leash. We also go to the beach or Fort Funston (another dog friendly area) most days. My dogs love to play with other dogs, and run and chase each other or the ball. I couldn't imagine what I would do if they couldn't go out daily!!!

Just have to add that I took them for a walk today, because it was so nice outside. Shelby actually walked today - no ballerina. I think she is getting the hang of it. I haven't started puppy class yet, because I just missed one, and Shelby will be spayed in a few weeks. So it will probably be in late March or early April before we can join. She needs it.
