Walk Your Dog & Saturday Pet Blogger Hop 8/20/11

Besides mealtime and treats, nothing excites Velvet more than when I get out the leash. She absolutely loves to go for walks and she acts like she enjoys car rides even though she whines the whole time we're in the car. I have to admit that a lot of times I get too busy and then too tired to take her out, but I want to start making the effort to do it more often. Walking with your furfriend can be a wonderful experience for both of you, as walking cures a multitude of maladies. Studies have shown that walking reduces stress, its a great way to lose weight, and it helps reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer and diabetes.

Take the time to focus on your pet and your surroundings, clear your head. No cell phone, no music, just you, your dog and nature.

Fancy loves to walk with her favorite stuffy.

My mom person got out of the habit of walking me cause she was in the hospital & then it got super hot here. She needed this reminder to get her off of the computer & out in the real world, BOL!
