I’ve never understood those people who claim to be dog lovers and then begrudge having to take them out on walks. It might be a struggle to find the motivation sometimes, and the weather is not always perfect. Still, for many of our canine companions a walk really is the highlight of their day.
It’s not always easy, especially if you have a dog like mine who strains on the lead for cats, passing motorbikes, and other dogs who she then proceeds to growl at (the joys of a reactive hound). Still, there’s a real peace to be found by simply ambling along, watching your furry friend sniff the ground and generally have the time of their life. You both enjoy some fresh air and get your steps in at the same time, what’s not to love?
While looking at dog-related memes isn’t quite as healthy, it is just as good for the soul. Also, there’s no poop to pick up.
