I am not usually in the habit of taking multiple brisk walks a day (yes, there is a limit to my desire to work out). That all changed a few days ago after we ‘rescued’ Layla from the West Chester (Pa) SPCA.
Every morning and night, Layla tries to drag me through our village at breakneck speed… so not only do I get in some extra walking, I also get a decent strength workout keeping her at bay.
On a side note, the workers at the SPCA were really nice and helpful, and we were glad to bring Layla home to become part of our family. Like my friend Mark says, adopt a dog in need instead of buying from a ‘puppy mill’.
