|Bonding with My Dogs|
"Let yourself regraduate
every 4 years"
One way that you'll notice this is by my creation of a series of Doga videos. I'd like to ask your thoughts on this. Comments please!
As my readers, your opinions are of the utmost importance. I value what you think far more than any awards received from blogging groups or even the paychecks that come from pet brands when I provide services like Twitter Parties. After all, without you, there would be no Twitter Party.
I have worked for myself since I was in my mid-twenties, nearly all of my adult life. Each chapter has been a fun, new challenge that I welcome with excitement. Doing something new has long been the wind under my wings. The question I am now asking myself is "Where will my next flight take me?"
With the addition of an RV to allow our family to travel with our dogs more easily and comfortably, I am learning to make this form of travel much more green than I ever thought possible. Sometimes when I discover a new way that I can save the environment by vacationing in the RV, I ask myself, "Who knew?" Usually the answer is "Not me!" This is one angle that I plan to add to future postings, while definitely not a whole new chapter for All Things Dog Blog.
In an effort to maintain my health, strength and flexibility, I have been adding more Yoga to my otherwise normal routine of dog walks, conditioning workouts and hand weights. At my age, it seems things take longer to recover, so I'm finding that working on flexibility helps to relax muscles and aid in a better night's sleep.
|Bonding Time with Tanner and Oliver|
time we spend together. They linger, watch, lay down on the mat and sometimes even allow me to use them in my workout in some way. One day as I tetered in the Airplane Pose, Tanner stood steady as I placed a hand on his back for balance. He seemed to know that I needed his assistance and remained still until I was finished.
Oliver joins me in my arms or on my lap occasionally and will often get between my legs gazing up wondering what this nonsense is all about. Or maybe he's just getting closer to better evaluate my scent. He is, after all, an Alert dog whose job is to notice changes in my scent. I'm sure the day will come when he'll alert me during a workout. But I digress.
As I work toward regraduating All Things Dog Blog, bringing you new and different ways to enjoy life with your dog, I hope that you will offer your thoughts, opinions and suggestions. I appreciate your feedback more than you know.
