But one of the reasons I bought Pepper is because I have a little excess luggage around the middle, the chest, the thighs, and the under arms which needs to find a new home. That luggage is going nowhere fast, so I need to do something.
I could diet. NOT. I could just stop complaining about it. NOT. I could exercise! I could use that big balance ball I bought last year. NOT. I could use the Ablounger I bought this summer. NOT. I could use the Gazelle I bought two years ago. NOT. I finally figured it out. I could just walk, and for that I would need a dog.
Now that puzzled Checkered immensely. He is just silly like that!
So now I have Pepper and we know that dogs love their walks. Here is a picture of Pepper.
No, she is not in our yard. Yes, we are taking a walk. No, she is NOT WALKING.
We have adopted the only dog who despises moving. Researcher that I am, I spent some time with the topic. Here is what I learned:
Offer the recalcitrant dog a treat.
Never offer the recalcitrant dog a treat.
Tug on her lead.
Never tug on her lead.
SO then, after putting that cutting edge research into action, I dragged Pepper around the block.....
....where another dog ceremoniously peed on her.
She and I managed to get home. She and I survived her immediate bath.
She is now recovering in the sock basket.
And I am recovering in the ice cream container.
