I wouldn’t trade Lucy for anything the world. I love her to pieces. But one constant source of aggravation (at least for me) is that she will not walk. I have to carry treats to bribe her around the block, which at least partially defeats the purpose of a walk. And I’m all for stopping and smelling the roses but Lucy takes that to a whole new level. She stops, sniffs and then…just stands there. Usually with a look of defiance in her eyes, just daring me to make her walk another step.
The whole process is about as much fun as it sounds. I still take her for walks because she needs them but they’re not exactly stress-reducing.
Buddy, on the other hand, is a treat to walk!
Buddy would walk all day if possible. As it is we go for one long walk every morning and usually at least another short walk in the evening.
He is such a fast walker! You can see how much he loves going for his walks and he’s so easy to walk. He trots along and only stops to pee (which is quite often), stare at animals and poo. Other than that we’re constantly on the move. While walking in winter months isn’t exactly fun, he’s at least easy to walk and the weather lately has been absolutely perfect!
Buddy is still looking for his forever home; I thought maybe we were close but nothing definite yet. One thing that is definite – Buddy needs a home in a neighborhood conducive to walks and humans willing to walk him!
