I took Maggie for our walk this morning before another big line of rain and storms moved in. This is our third day in a row of walking one mile. I plan to bump it up to two miles at the beginning of next month, but that’s it. I have learned that if I make walking too much of a chore, I just won’t do it and I and Maggie both need the exercise. It takes about one hour to walk a mile with all the frequent stops Maggie makes. She has to sniff everything, and I mean everything. It is one big canine staccato mess it seems. I am very happy today – grateful for all I have and the ability to still do such a thing with an animal that owns my heart.
