Daddy's Walking Progress
My walking routine with the Back Dogs is getter stronger and better. The sun rises, the sun sets and every other day the 24 Paws of Love take part in Daddy's exercising program.
Last week it was really cold as the high was around 10F (-12C) so I just walked the Back Dogs (Brut, Zappa, Fiona and Silver) to the corner and back which didn't take very long. So I decided to walk the Front Dogs (Chance and Blaze) as well. Which made me feel better, since they always seeing me walk the Back Dogs.
So as of today the Front Dogs have joined in with the Back Dogs to help Daddy get in shape. The walks are a little shorter due to the cold, but are longer for me adding the Front Dogs.
So far Brut, Zappa, Fiona and Silver have slowed a little bit and as each walk goes by as it is becoming more routine with them. Brut has his "four on the floor." Zappa goes back and forth. Fiona makes like she's trying to find the big surprise someone may have buried. And good old Momma Dog Silver she just trots along like she always does.
Now that I have Chance and Blaze added to the routine, it's really a full boat.
Taking Chance then Blaze it was like taking two Back Dogs at the same time. It went quite well walking Chance. He is doing good with Mommy and his walking training with her. I am not able to do that yet, so when she lets me take over and she uses the word, "release" (which gives him free reign on the leash) and Chance did just that. It took me by surprise. I just can not believe the power that boy has.
Blaze is just what her name says. A Blaze. She's not as strong as Chance, but she can be quite a handful.
The third time taking the Front Dogs they were getting better. I think they were just happy that they were going for a walk with Daddy after watching me walk the Back Dogs and it made me feel complete walking them too.
