Owning dogs comes with responsibilities, and one of them is exercise. But today’s exercise was pure joy, with the sun beating down, and nice 20 something degrees, and amazing scenery .
We decided to get our bikes into action. Now this was another first for Alfie (the Large Munsterlander), and after an excited 2 minutes of barking, prancing and general ‘what the hell are you sat on?’ conversation from him, he got the general idea and trotted along.
We didn’t go fast, nor far (Velvet our eldest Flattie at 10+ would have suffered the following day) but all had a great time and we saw far more on our bikes than we would have walking.
Exercise doesn’t have to be hard, grunty stuff in a gym. Cycling is a great way of keeping fit, with minimal impact on joints and great fun.
