One Couple + Two Dogs = Our Waldo Bungie

Lucy Lou learns about physical fitness

If you have more than one dog in your house, you have probably noticed that one dog will teach the other dog(s) different tricks and habits they have learned over the years. For instance, Reese is teaching McMuffin and Chick is teaching Dude about how important it is to keep an eye on the neighborhood. Well, Rufus recently taught Lucy Lou about how to stay physically fit. Rufus has always maintained a healthy weight, riding the line between 9 and 10 pounds once he was full grown.He attributes this to several things, including regular walks…

Taking time to relax and enjoy the simple things in life…

And most importantly, Rufus believes in incorporating physical activity into everyday tasks, like taking his meals. Rather than just eating his food out of the bowl, like a normal dog, Rufus will take one piece of kibble and walk it over to the other side of the house to eat it. He repeats this with all of his kibble pieces, making his meal take ten bazillion times longer than everyone else’s. But, Rufus maintains that the extra steps he takes to accomplish this process negates any calories he takes in from his food, thus helping him to remain at a healthy weight. Lucy Lou is taking Rufus’ advice very seriously, taking regular walks and finding time to relax, but she is too impatient to eat her meals one piece of kibble at a time. So instead, she has taken to doing push-ups mid-bite to maintain her muscular physique.

Sigh…the things a girl has to do to stay fit…

If you want Lucy Lou to teach you everything she knows about physical fitness, consider adopting her! Contact me at {} to inquire!
