We have created a generation of animals that are as plump as their owners. That’s because both owners and pets eat too much and move too little.
Exercise benefits apply to both pet and pet owner. Whether you swim, walk, run or just toddle along the local path; balance, joint mobility, and stamina improve.
Of course, common sense guidelines are drinking enough water and keeping your dog on a leash. If that offends you, think of it as your dog holding your leash! After all, someone has to be in control.
Really, it’s like our relationship with Jesus. Someone has to be in control and if we are smart, we will let it be Jesus. He has a better idea where we are going.
In all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:16, NIV)
Prayer- Lord, keep us walking in the right direction, even when we are taking our dog along! Amen.
