It weren't so much as walking the dog as ski-ing in mud, being drag along by Dog, he is getting real excited at going to the park normally we walk around the block on the dark, as there are loads of peeps that walk their dogs off leashes, and they always want to charge at ya,.. and Stan is so excitable and strong,he is a staffie, its' a nightmare.. well Ceasar Milan (The Dog Whsiperer)says walk ya dog for 40 mins, and trot with him if he has lots of excess energy to burn,and he has that in abundance, oh my I feel the weight falling off my big bottom at long last..lol me legs are killing me, like I have done areobics, anywas onto todays card,
