    Well dog lovers worldwide know what a truly loving and faithful a companion a dog is, it’s unconditional affection and attachment to its owner comes at no price except warmth comfort food and care that it’s owners have a duty to carry out.
    It’s now been proved that lots of walks helps keep your dogs brain healthy, by preventing canine cognitive dysfunction, a form of dementia similar to Alzhemimer’s. Pets with little exercise where more likely to have the condition but there was a link to activity.
    Research as found in humans a link between exercises and Alzhemimer’s.
    So regular walkies together has a neurological advantage to both owners and pets. But the best part is, both parties will enjoy it.
    Walkies anyone?

      What can I say!  2poos and I, as you well know, are constant companions on our frequent country walks.  Let me paws for thought.

      Mmmm ………

      The benefits of being out dressed with a dog can’t be understated:

      She gives me a valid reason for being out. After all she does need at least two walks a day.  And I can get away with long walks without raising wife’s suspicions.

      I get plenty of exercise and enjoyment from watching her enjoy herself sniffing every blade of grass (when she is in that mood), or more often Squirrel spotting, scent trail following, or chasing.

      She gives me being out legitimacy.  Immediately I am seen as a female dog-walker, and not a lone female wandering about in wild places.   I am “hiding in plain sight.”   It is quite rare to see unaccompanied females out in the woods!

      It is deemed acceptable to give other dog walkers a wide berth, as it is assumed I have either a very nervous or aggressive dog.  Without a dog such behaviour would attract attention.

      She is a fantastic distraction accessory! Doggie lovers are more likely to be watching/admiring 2poos rather than looking at me!

      I have a little anecdote supporting this.  The other day I met an old boy with a walking stick and an off- the-lead black Labrador.  It was on a path hemmed in by young trees and bushes with “passing places”, so there was no way of avoiding close contact.  I stood slightly to one side so he could squeeze past.  He didn’t look at me, he was too preoccupied with his dog and 2poos (who was on her lead at the time.)  He leaned down to stroke her, commenting on what a lovely dog she was.  She wasn’t having any of it! So she darted forward  and somehow got her lead wrapped around his walking stick.  He apologised whilst freeing his stick and walked on. For 30 seconds or so we were cheek by jowl, but he gave no sign that he had made me.  Which was surprising seeing I was wearing a black mini-skirt and spaghetti-strap camisole top, with my lacy bra supporting my DD’s peeking out above it!

      I could have taken his eye out!  Perhaps that is why I got away with it!  He saw what he expected to see (both of them).  I looked about as much like a man as an elephant would.

      I can wear what I want. I can join the fraternity in dog walking suitable clothing, or present myself as a lady who popped out to walk doggie in her lunchbreak in  a summer dress or blouse and skirt.

      She  allows me to be one with nature, and is very beneficial for my mental well being and stress levels.

      I have a great fun time!  And so does she.

      Hugs from me, and paw on your knee from 2poos.   xx

      I love both dogs and walks. I unfortunately can’t have  a dog due to my living condition, but I still try my best to get in regular walks around the area. It is actually how I made the most progress in my weight loss journey just regular hour long walks around the block. Made great progress!

      Hi Amanda,

      It’s a happy medium for me. I don’t have a dog, it doesn’t quite fit my lifestyle, but there’s two different dogs that I look after now and again when their owners shoot off for a while, or even just to borrow for a walk. If I’m out with one, it’s guaranteed I’ll have more friendly social exchanges with other walkers than when I’m out alone. Dogs are good for you, even if part time!

      Good morning ms Burton.

      I had a Jack Russel who reached a fine old age….wonderful companion, such fun…something in me died when he passed.

      Alzheimer’s in dogs, gosh, never knew or realised they could get it. thinking back, there would be instances when it could have applied…

      When i threw a stick for the twentieth time, and he just stood and looked at me….had he forgotten what a stick was???

      or whenever the weather was bad, had he forgotten what ” walkies ” meant??..

      .or even when he spat out a semi chewed shoe….totally slipped his mind that it was not food??….gosh, the more i think about it…….

      Here boy…here boy …HERE BOY!!!!…..

      Grace x

      My dogs take me out for a walk almost every day. Anything between an hour and 3 hours generally unless we are a day in the mountains. As soon as I’m away from the village I can pop my forms in and relax.

      Hugs

      Well yes and no.  I don’t have a dog.  Allergies are a big reason, and I don’t want the responsibility in case I want to sleep in late or get home late.

      However, my company has incentives for walking a certain number of steps per day, and if I am not in the office (either weekend, day off, or working from home) I need to take a walk in order to reach my step goals.  And it didn’t take me long to convince myself that if I am going to (in essence) get paid to walk, I’m going to do it en femme.

      On work days I may walk around a trail on the property, or use the treadmill or elliptical if the weather is bad.  At home I’ll also use a treadmill if the weather is bad.  But most days I can find a time to get in my walks, even without a dog to accompany me.

      Hi Amanda, Absolutely, My dog Sandy and I walk twice a day between one to two hours (depending on weather and other commitments). And when we get home, she still does zoomies in the backyard.  Then she has a snack and a nap. And sometimes I join her for a snack and nap too.  The joys of retirement. Have a lovely rest of the week, All the very best, Hugs, Krista.

        Hi Krista sweetie,
        OH absolutely the first question how has the gorgeous Sandy adapted to her new surroundings?.
        People often forget that experiences are just as traumatic to animals as humans.
        Better still does her new owners “Cut the mustard” as we say over here.
        Extremely glad to read that you yourself are not participating in zoomies around the yard.
        Well enjoy your walks, and naps too sweetie. Ps love the name you picked too, ta ta sweetie love to all, hugs to Sandy,
        Lol Amanda xx

          Hi Amanda, Well Sandy is settling in quite well, thank you very much.  For the first few days, she slept on her dog bed on the floor in my bedroom.  But a few nights ago, as she felt more comfortable she jumped on my bed and slept with me.  And she hasn’t stopped since.  She is sleeping on my bed right now as I’m typing. We had a lovely brisk walk this morning, it was 4 celsius. Brrr.  And we both had lovely breakfasts so I’m ready for a nap too.  But I’ll stay awake – it is laundry day for me (after my wife gets out from her lengthy shower).   Oh, I hear her stirring in the kitchen.  Gotta run.  Sandy says Hello.  Big Hugs, Krista.

            Hi Krista,
            Thank you for letting me know, that really beautiful that she felt comfortable and safe enough to make that first move. That trust and bond is slowly being built both ways.
            It’s a beautiful thing you and your wife have done.
            Lol Amanda xx hug to Sandy

          Hi Grace, As I was mentioning to Amanda, Sandy is very much starting to fit in.  She makes friends easily with everyone she meets.  And she has a lovely smile.  Oh and she just jumped on my bed to have another nap as I’m typing this note.  We just love her little husky howls – “arroo” when she is telling us she either wants food or to go outside.  Paige used to sit at the front window watching the world go by and barking at everything that moved. Sandy also sits at the front window but rarely ever barks which is wonderful. But then again, Paige was much, much older and maybe she was just being a cranky old lady.Thanks so much for asking. Have a lovely end of the week and weekend.  Big Hugs, Krista.
