In an effort to both make Lucy tired and prevent her from getting fat(ter), I take her for walks every day; if she’s lucky, two walks. However, despite having her for over five months, she still fights walks every single time and we only walk a quarter-mile at a time! I have to drag her across the yard; last night I simply turned my back and started walking/pulling her along as usual but looked back to see she had given up, laid down and I was literally dragging her limp body through the grass.
However, once we get going she loves it; I think since her nose surgery she smells better so she sniffs everything, sees people, sees other dogs, etc. It’s just getting her going that’s the problem.
Sunday was a ridiculously nice day for the middle of October so we took an extra long walk and I snapped a few photos from the trip to prove that she does actually like them, even if the beginnings are a bit rough…
She frequently plays devil’s advocate to see what I’ll do when she simply sits down and refuses to walk.
