Playing Fetch Counts…Right?

I spent the day running errands and taking care of stuff. 

As for being active, well yeah that wasn’t really happening. 

Well does playing fetch with the dogs count? I mean I do have to wrestle the ball out of their mouths so that it can be thrown again. 

Ughhhhh!!!! I need to find the motivation to be active. 

I’m thinking about going to a local brewery on Sunday that is doing a yoga and brews class. I’ve gone before and really enjoyed it. And, well I’ve been missing yoga I need to start going balc to my daily classes. 

Tomorrow is another day of errands and work related stuff. I’m hoping that after this week I’ll be on a more defined schedule and will be able to get things done. 

Got to make the time for me and just do it. 

These Guys

So these 2 guys got us a visit from animal control tonight. Apparently, one of our neighbors doesn’t like hearing a dog bark, and called animal control. Uhmmm we aren’t the only ones with dogs, yes my dogs bark, but that’s what dogs do, you could of talked to us about it if it was that much of a bother to you, and oh yeah it wasn’t even quite hours. 

We were told they were good and it’s not a problem so we shall see. I may be going to pay a visit to the neighbor to find out what exactly the problem is.  

We’ll keep the little trouble makers anyway regardless if we get reported for barking dogs. 

Merry Christmas

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas. Hope you’re spending time with family, friends, and loved ones.
I’m enjoying a cup of tea with some sweet potato puffs, curled up on the couch watching 24 hours of A Christmas Story, while the dogs decide what to do with their bones Santa brought.


It’ll be a nice quite day here, with eating leftovers and calling friends and family to wish them all a Merry Christmas.
Enjoy your holiday.

I Wore Them Out

The dogs and I went to the dog park today. I needed to get some exercise in and they needed to expend some energy.

I think I succeeded in wearing them out. 2.5 mile walk for me probably closer to 4 for them with all the running after other dogs they did. And, they played in the river for a good 20 minutes.
Hmmmm maybe I’ve found the answer to getting sleep at night.

Casualty During The Dog Walk

The weather here in Wyoming today was wonderful. Well okay as wonderful as it gets here. Temps in the 70’s, some sun, and of course wind. Because you can’t have a completely nice day here in Wyoming.
We took the dogs out for another walk in hopes of burning off some of their energy, getting in some exercise for us, and just some time spent enjoying the fresh air.
We took a different route today that had less car traffic but more people and other dog traffic. The dogs did pretty well although Heidi, our younger dog was a bit of a spaz. As we walked by a house with a large fence a dog jumped at the fence and started barking. This of course spooked Heidi. Which then resulted in me getting taken out by my scared of her own shadow dog. Slightly sprained ankle and skinned up knee later we made it home. Did I mention we took the dogs on a little over 2 mile walk today. They are getting a bit better at walking on a leash. I still won’t be walking the 2 of them by myself ever.


Walking My Dogs Is A Full Body Workout

This afternoon the weather here in Wyoming had improved greatly from this morning’s snow and cold temperatures. It is now sunny and in the 40’s. The husband and I decided we would try to take our dogs for a walk. Now, walking our dogs is a full on workout. They are horrible on a leash. It is completely our fault as we never really worked with them on a leash because they have always been able to pretty much run free.

Anyway, they pull, yank, stop short, and have to sniff everything, and I mean EVERYTHING. So a walk that could take 10 minutes takes hours. Oh not to mention the upper body workout I get with the dogs fighting them to stay on the sidewalk and not dragging me into people’s yards or better yet oncoming traffic.

We did about a mile with them and decided that was enough.  The husband will be home for a few weeks before he heads off to work for 3 months so I’m hoping that the weather will cooperate and be nice enough for afternoon or evening walks in which we can take the dogs. The only way they will get better is if we continue to take them out. Plus it’s a good workout for me.
