Why we love walkies....

I love taking the dogs for walks for lots of reasons... solitude and quiet out there on my walk route out of town, a chance to burn some energy and calories for all of us, fresh air. But, the best reason is simply because I have learned lately that a good Jack Russell is an exhausted Jack Russell, so here she is, post walk....


Normally Murphy can at least manage to look up and glare, but not this morning!  It's hard work keeping up with the big dogs, after all!

And, of course, a shot of my Sophie, looking sweet and charming on my bed.


Tired girl!! :) Yup, we love our walkies. And, yes, for the record I CAN walk all three dogs at once, I just have to watch the leashes is all.

Ahhh, nothing like a relaxing nap after a long walk filed with new sights, smells, and friends. Plus, as my human always likes to say, a tired dog is a good dog!

Thanks for your kind words. It is good to hear that other dogs have the same issues with the same watch and wait advice. It has been super hot here for a long time and even though Mango seemed fine, maybe he just had too much activity over the course of the day and it caught up with him.

Having never had a lab before, I am amazed by how much alike they look. Sophie is a cutie pie and she looks, well, just like Dexter! I think if Dex didn't have his collar on I might bring the wrong black lab home from daycare. But what a wonderful (and easy) breed.
