What Dog Breed is Right for Your Fitness Style?
It was a painful decision because I had to admit a) I was out of shape and b) parts of my body were heading towards my toes.
Now I know this is the first blog I'm writing for Positively.com and realize it should be something more inspirational-- something with an epiphany.. but that's not me. Not really.
So, instead I thought I would come clean.
I am out of shape, getting old.. and can be lazy at times.
And as I was writing this.. I realized. Oh my gosh- I've become my dog.
Don't get me wrong- I love her like my child.. but she is out of shape.. getting old.. and well, reallllly lazy.
I tried doing all kinds of activities with her.
Playing catch? Nope. You can see it in her eyes.. her thoughts of futility. If I go get that ball and bring it back.. then she is just going to throw it again. What's the point?
Go for a run? nah-- she's thinking.. not unless the cat is chasing me.
Swim? She looks at her "girlish" figure and thinks.. there is nothing that says 'sink' than this girth.
So-- that lead me to try to discover what kinds of dogs would be good for which kinds of exercise...? Enjoy.
