    I've got two dogs, a 6 y/o Bichon and just over a year old Wooly Siberian Husky. Both love to go on walks. Usually take them for about 40-60 minutes depending on the weather.

    That's awesome! Are they good walking together with you? I watch our neighbor's dog once in a while, and it's hard to walk 2 dogs at once, without getting tangled.

    I haven't walked both of them at once by myself yet. He husky is a bit powerful and he's has that puppy curiosity. f7vnahqgqp1t.jpeg

    I love how they're best buddies <3

    There's one more, a 14 yo beagle, who doesn't like the "dog park" i.e. backyard, he leaves it to the puppies

    I love Frenchies! I would love to get one but they don't wind up in too many rescues and I currently have four dogs anyways. Three terriers mixes and a black lab.

    I love your fur babies!! How did you get them to sit still for so long?

    Thank you! The pet photographer is really good and drugs. Lol. One of them has a scrip for doggie zanax.

    One of the trails we go on is loaded with Gopher holes. He can never resist sticking in head in hole hoping to catch one!

    We have 3 rescue dogs and Ziggy, our Russell Terrier. Ziggy loves being active, but due to his deformed front legs, he is unable to go on regular walks as the sides of his front claws wear down until they bleed. He was a decent swimmer when he was young, but now he makes us nervous as he tires quickly and shows poor judgment about when to stop.

    Ollie, our bully mix, would be a great running buddy, except that he wanders unpredictably as he runs with me and is a tripping hazard. He and Skippy go out on long walks together, although they don't realize that the purpose is exercise and think that they are out there to hunt small animals. We believe Skippy is a Jackshund, so he is full of energy until he tires suddenly (short little dachshund legs) and needs to be carried for a bit. Skippy does not run on a leash - he slows down if Ollie goes faster than he likes. Luckily, Ollie thinks his main job is to provide protection to the little dogs, so he is careful to match Skippy's pace.

    We rescued Zoey, a Jack Russell mix, from Animal Control, where she faked being completely deaf (we suspect there are some hearing and vision deficits, but she definitely reacts to sound). She was very thin when we got her, and it seems to have traumatized her a bit. She is now quite overweight and does not get much exercise. She has many issues (lacks coordination and muscle tone, only turns to the left, poor vision, poor doggy social skills, and she is just plain mean at times), but she is part of the pack and has shown some ability to learn. We've tried taking her on walks on her own and with the other dogs. She does not like them. She won't walk on grass or on pavement and neither temperature nor time of day affects her unwillingness to walk. She will walk on the driveway until she gets to the car (she loves car rides), at which point she lies down and refuses to move. She will walk for short distances on concrete sidewalks and in stores.

    This is my little man, Henderson. He is a awesome Great Dane; about 6 years old. I feel bad because it is so hot right now in Texas that I haven't been able to take him walking much. Once the temps get better, we will be on our way. :)ot2dxlmygps3.jpg

    Each of your fur babies are adorable. Like people, some may have limitations, and we work with them. My Roxie has to stop and sniff things every 5 minutes, and I have to step on her leash around small children because she'll knock them over from her excitement.

    What a sweetheart! It's been unseasonably hot in Michigan too, so I walk at 5:30 am and after the sun goes down.

    I have a three year old Rottweiler named Sheba but she also goes by 'Boo', 'Bubba' and 'Don't Eat That'. She's is the antithesis of the stereotypical Rottweiler as she's truly the sweetest, kindest, most gentle dog over I've ever known. She is extremely high energy and gets two walks a day, a ten to fifteen minute one before work and a long two to five mile walk after work. She's perfect for me; I don't live in a great neighborhood so she keeps me safe just because of her size but she's such a baby I know she'd never hurt anyone.
