My regular trips to the gym to walk on the treadmill have been infrequent. Between scheduling issues and visits to the chiropractor things have been up in the air.
Sunday, the girls and I, participated in the Spooky Tails and Trails walk at my local park. The walk was sponsored by the local YMCA. It was a 5K run, 2 Mile pet and family walk, and 1 Mile kids fun run. We did the 2 mile pet walk.
I knew my pug Lola would be able to walk the 2 miles. She likes a good walk and is perfectly happy to prance along. Ellie, however, isn't much of a walker. Her weight and short stubby legs are not a good combination. My original plan was to just take Lola but the more I thought about it, the more I realized, I can't leave one at home.
So I went online and purchased a dog stroller.
The plan was for Ellie to walk for a bit and then into the stroller she would go. On test walks Ellie barely made it a quarter mile before sitting down and refusing to move.
On Sunday, Ellie did much more than a quarter mile. I was very proud of her. The after affect was a very tired and limpy pug. Lola did the full 2 mile walk and she had a bit of energy to spare. Both pugs slept very well that night.
Oh there was also a pet costume contest. I think my girls were robbed!
Up next is the Biggest Loser 5K Walk on November 2!
