Dogs and Humans Exercise
There is no question that exercise is an important part of the daily routine. It is especially important for Snickers so she maintains the strength in her three good legs and is important for me to maintain my muscle tone and bone density as I age. I recently bought a Nordic Track on eBay for a minimal amount of money and set it up in my sewing room. I tried it out today for the first time and was able to go for a half hour with no problem. I didn't use my arms, because I need to get used to the balance of the machine. Snickers saw me exercising and decided it was time for her to get busy, too. She has a built in Nordic Track in her tail. It won't stop chasing her. She was very busy catching it and when it would slip away, she needed to chase it down again. When she tired of that, she ran off and found her stuffed animals and threw them around the house, shook them, and ran from room to room with them. What a good dog, making sure her babies exercise, too.
