1. Anytime is a good time to go for a walk.
2. No matter how long my day was, how terrible it was, how badly I feel about myself, what I look like, what mistakes I make, there is always a wagging tail and a wet kiss ready and waiting to make my life better.
3. Just because there is food around, I don’t have to eat it if I’m not hungry.
4. When we go to the park, Walter doesn’t jump in the river for a swim. However, he has often fallen in trying to have a drink. But he has never willingly jumped in for a swim. Yesterday was very hot and as soon as we got to the edge of the water, he climbed down the bank and went for a swim. He didn’t HAVE to jump in. He could have had a drink and laid in the shade or waited until we got back to the car for some air conditioning. Jumping into the water wasn’t the only way, but it was the best and fastest way. I’ll be going back to the gym soon.
