Is There Such a Thing as a Leisurely Walk with a Lab?
This is one of my favorite pinterest images – this aerial view of a walk with a Lab, with the Lab going all over the place. It’s funny mostly because it is so true.
Jack is a pretty methodical walker, he walks mostly by my side, and I can predict which bushes he is going to stop and sniff, where he’s going to check pee mail, etc. But Maggie – Maggie is all over the place – she’s ahead of me, behind me, to the right, to the left, circles back to recheck something, runs ahead to get to the pee mail spot first. You get the idea.
I thought I would make my own rendition of a typical walk with Jack & Maggie. That’s me – the yellow line, Jack is blue and Maggie is pink. Who do you think got the most exercise on our walk?
How about you and your dog – what would your trail look like?
