MARY LYNNE RICHARDS of our staff has a great blog here talking about the benefits of running with her dog.
I’m not a runner, but I love to walk our two dogs, Lucy and Bella. We have a couple of favorite out-of-the way spots and the girls know when it’s time, they go nuts when they see me putting on my shoes.
Walking is good for the soul, doesn’t cost a dime and makes you feel even better when you are done. Many days I come home from work dragging my sorry tail, only to see the excited tails of Lucy and Bella wagging back and forth in anticipation of the late afternoon/early evening stroll.
The urge to sit there and do nothing is great. The rewards of being active are even greater.
