Exhausted

Some things in life are obvious. Like the fact that dogs need a walk every day. Not just a ten-minute-stroll-around-the-block, but a real walk. To an exiting place, like the beach or the park. My humans know this and we walk a lot. Which is nice.

But one can overdo this a-long-walk-every-day stuff. Humans tend to do that sometimes, don’t they? They don’t just exercise, which is good, but they exercise too much. My humans don’t do this, normally, they are reasonable and intelligent. They know when it is healthy to exercise and when it is time to stop and rest. However, yesterday something went wrong. We walked and walked and walked. And when we stopped to have lunch, I thought we would take a train or a car or something to go back home, but we didn’t. We walked all the way back!

Too long walk

We walked more than 30 kilometers. And that, I can tell you, is exhausting. Even for a well trained dog like me, with my long legs and strong muscles. When I got home, I wolfed down my food and went to sleep immediately (with Chuck, who had stayed home all day, the lazy bastard).
Jeez. I do hope my humans won’t do this again.

Sunny walk

Yesterday M was ill and I stayed by her side all day. I do not want to go out when she is ill, I want to stay with her in case she needs me. She is much better today, so I took my usual position near the window to guard my street, again. But that is not what I want to tell you about today – I want to show you the walk we did a couple of days ago. It was awesome! We went to a place that is not familiar to me. The sun was shining:

Sunny walk 1

There were nice smelly woods, dunes and sand and loads of rabbits and little lakes shimmering in the distance:

Sunny walk 2

And then, there was the beach! The sea is never far off where we live. I had smelled it already when we were walking in the woods and was hoping we would go there. I like the woods, but I love the beach.

Sunny walk 3

We went down to it and I did some thorough running, chasing seagulls and all that. Then we returned to the woods again. It was a really nice walk.
