It started raining Sunday evening. We are so thankful for it because everything was so dry. Also, the rain has brought cooler temperatures which I love.
The downside is that the dogs are inside all day and have no way to rid themselves of their energy...well, no way that we allow! So this morning we had treadmill time. They love it, and I love it because they come away tired and relaxed.
The treadmill gives them physical exercise, but the most important thing is the mental challenge. I am a big fan of Caesar Milan, his dogs respect him but they don't fear him. Dogs need exercise to be happy, period.
We have three treadmill junkies: Charlie, Scrappy and Speedbump. They jump on it and look at me like,,,turn it on,,,let's go!
Violet likes the treadmill but she's been spoiled and wants me to walk with her. Oh well, I need the exercise too.
I'm still working with Corrie. They have to be comfortable jumping on the treadmill and she's just not ready, she doesn't like anything where all of the attention is on her. She'll get there though.
Daisy, our eldest dog, has hip trouble, so I don't let her do this exercise. She is calm enough and she gets her mental exercise constantly because she is focused on home security, and she gets her physical exercise when she and Charlie play stick, etc.
Well, I'm off to clean the house and maybe work on a quilt I have going. Blessings to you all from the holler...
