It can sometimes be a struggle to leave the computer and get outside and move – especially as the days get shorter. Our dachshunds make it a little easier though, because even when we think we don’t have the time, those big round eyes tell us differently. So taking their huge hint, I made the time today for us to go out and get some much needed exercise. It has been almost four full weeks since we have been out to the beach (or anywhere significantly fun besides our local dog park). If you remember correctly, we took some time off because Rufus was having some back concerns. Luckily he has completed his laser light therapy and appears to be walking normal again. Nonetheless, today was also a learning experience for me. In the past, we often will hit the beach hard and fast, covering a lot of distance with a lot of running. Today, being highly aware of Rufus newly healed body, I didn’t want to facility a relapse so… we took it nice and slow and easy. The beach excursion was just as enjoyable as previous visits, but we took more time to explore the funny smells instead of running from end to end. It was truly a beautiful day for the beach here in Southern California. The temperature was perfect (not too hot or too cold). Hope you and yours are having a wonderful week in your part of the world.
