So you got yourself a dog walker! Congratulations. And thank you for not only for being proactive about your dog's well-being but also for allowing people like me to pay rent without having to go to a "real" job (like you have).
An enriching walk will also help tire out a dog out both mentally and physically, which can result in better behavior during the inside portions of the day. Here are some ways to make walks as fun as possible for both canines and humans.
There is nothing like caring for others to take you out of your own head. I cannot bring myself to worry about making rent when I am Spiderman's sidekick (who knew he had one and that she looks just like me?).
I have been asked to express some thoughts about proposed changes -- meaning, more restrictions -- to dog policy in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA). I cannot speak for my estimated 100,000 fellow canines in the city, but will try.
There are undiscovered sides to New York that a girl can't understand until she owns a dog. The romance of the Big Apple quickly wore off, for example, when I realized to my dogs, NYC is a huge porcelain throne -- and I'm the flusher.
