After supper last night, my Son asked me to come and look at the paw prints in our back yard.
His dog is a mixture of Border Collie and German Shepard. She has more energy than any dog I have known. But she has slowed down. A lot. Or so I thought, until I saw how many tracks she made in the snow during the day yesterday.
She was in the yard alone. Her partner-in-crime and usual yard-mate (a chihuahua) was holidaying for the weekend. So these tracks mark the miles that she made. By herself. Without human or dog influence. This is just a day-in-her-life. Just check out where she went yesterday:
Even the top of her dog house was not off limits.
One dog did this? By herself?
On patrol - no corner of the yard was untouched.
Yes, Sadie. Aren't you svelte!? Your work-out routine really works!
Proud of her hard day's work.
I am grateful that there is no 'snow' in the house to mark the miles that I make during the day. From the computer, to the kitchen, to the couch and back. All day.
Maybe it's time to get a pedometer and race to put accumulate more steps than Sadie does in a day ...
