Sometimes a dog needs to vent and as you know, this is a rare occurrence for me. Unlike humans, we can ignore all the idiosyncrasies that seem to dwell within humans. Now, I know no one wants to read about any of the unusual food I have to smell in this house lately, but may I ramble about it anyway? My human friends are working to shed the pandemic weight gain. I can only handle the smell of poached eggs and greek yogurt for so many days around here. Oh, did I mention I also have to tolerate broccoli scents floating in the air. Yikes, and how about those veggie burgers that smell like cardboard to us dogs? I wonder if they heat those up just so us dogs don’t ever try to steal them? For the record, I have never taken any food off the table, even the good stuff! It is a good thing that the weather forecast is predicting warmer weather so I can get outside to escape to some fresh air!
There is a benefit if my friends in this home lose some weight! I will be going on more dog walks and runs because they will have their energy back. When humans gain some weight, they aren’t as motivated to exercise because they can become complacent about their condition. Complacency is a subject that I would need to write a book on, not just a blog. Let me just say that even us dogs have to strive to be our best and seek out new ways to better our humans! Of course, at the same time, we grow too….yeh, yeh; but, we definitely nudge our humans to stay in shape physically and mentally.
Tomorrow, we will start our longer walks since the frigid cold weather has passed for now. When Nancy arrived home today, she announced that the trail near our house has been plowed and is mostly clear for walking. You know what that means? If I am lucky, she will research 5K’s that allow dogs to run too. OK, maybe just walk in her case. Spring is in the air! Stay tuned for our/her progress! Spring is in the air! (Oh, I already said that!)
