Lately, I’ve been taking The Brown Chiots on a morning walk. We head down the driveway and then we come back up again, nothing too exciting, but it gives us a cleared place to walk. We have a longer driveway, around 1/3 of a mile in length. It’s downhill all the way down and uphill all the way back. This is the perfect walk for Lucy, especially the uphill part. It helps keep her old joints a little less stiff.
When we’re proactive about taking her on a short walk every day she definitely gets around much better. Not to mention, she simply loves to be out and about. I also must say, it’s good for me as well! Having her around makes me get out and walk, I probably wouldn’t be doing this in the morning if it weren’t for her. It’s nice to breathe the crisp morning air, look for animals tracks through the woods and to watch the birds about their work. I’d get physical exercise even if it wasn’t for this walk, but this walk is good for more than just my body!
