Exercise is motion and comes in so many different forms. We love to walk and we do walk every day. Cousin Lena doesn’t walk much at home, so she loves to get her paws in motion and hit the trails with us when she visits! Exploring and sniffing are so fun and a good workout at the same time.
One of the best things about living with canine siblings is play buddies. With three of us, someone is always around and available to chase, wrestle, or play tug a war. As you know, Bailie and I love to get our paws in motion racing around the yard.
Now with Lena here for almost two weeks we have four dogs. Mom says four is really too much, three is a lot, two is perfect, but for a limited time, four is fun. We are all a bit different and we all find our own ways to amuse ourselves out in the yard.
Bailie loves to dig out her toys in the snow. If you look carefully you can see the slight orange cast coming out of the snow as her buried tennis ball is bright orange. Digging is a great way to work out and luckily she doesn’t dig much in the dirt or grass.
These activities go on pretty much daily on and off in the yard besides our walks and runs with Mom. It is a great way to really burn off some energy while having total dog fun! If you are an only dog, invite a friend or two over for a play date to have some fun! Not only do we have a blast, we always get a nice treat when we go back into the house 🙂 We’ve earned it.
