TSA #20 – Play with the Dog
Take a look at your dog right now. See them looking at you with those eyes that say, “please take me for a walk…pleeeeeeeaaaassseeee!!”
You should take them for a walk. You should play with them. You should take 10 minutes out of your day and just get on the floor and pet their belly.
We recently house/dog sat for a friend of ours who lives downtown. They live in a very nice apartment right downtown so its fun to walk everywhere. What is not fun is having to take the dog out late at night or early in the morning to do their business. I have never been so thankful for our doggie door back home. We brought our small little dog down with us and he had a great time playing with the new dog and we took them for walks all over downtown. They had a great time and we enjoyed taking them out, even though we were sort of forced to being in an upstairs apartment.
I try to take my dog out for a walk at least once a day. I don’t always meet that goal and I can see the dog looking at me with those sad eyes wondering when we are going to play.
Everyone is busy. Everyone has a million things to do. Take 10 minutes out of your day and take the dog for a walk, or take them out and throw the ball for them. It means the world to them and will give you a chance to pause your day and relax as well. You will both enjoy this time together.
