Nothing wrong with being more aware of potential dangers, take what you can learn from it and keep on living. You can get hurt or worse just as likely driving to a "safer" walking location as you can walking around your neighborhood.|

You might as well give up the dogs and stay on the couch. Then you will get a heart attack due to the lack of exercise and happiness.|

|Bob_McBob||Why does your husband have to "give you back" your freedom? You are an adult, not a child. Walking a dog on city sidewalks is not a dangerous activity.|

We recently had a hit and run in our family...and it has been devastating. I don't want to say any more about it...
My husband freaked out. He won't let me take the pups on walks any more. I don't know what to do as it is our only form of real exercise and the only way I get them out of the house. We compromised on me taking the pups in the car to a nearby school where we usually walk. But to me it's silly because we stay mainly on the sidewalks and cross a major street twice. It cuts our walk in half.
Any advice on how I can convince him to give us back our freedom?
