Re: Help! He won't leave me alone.
I know the feeling, my old guy is content to be in on a cold dark night, but Zuzu is wanting fun. To keep our sanity, I put on my boots and woolies, pack the dogs in my car and take them to a schoolyard that has some lighting---I live near several but I'm fortunate for that.
I can let them off leash and bring balls to throw, or I go running in the snow with them--it's better than a visit to the gym! I HATE it...don't get me wrong, it's cold, dark and I want to be on the couch, but I feel obligated and I have places I can do this.
If the school fields are just too dark, I drive them to the nearby village where the streets are well-lit and go for a 30 minute walk/jog.
If I'm just too beat, it's a game of soccer in the yard.
The only thing that keeps us in is a hard rain. Blech. Then I get The Stare from Zuzu like I put the rain there for her misery.
Can't WAIT for spring...or at least some sunlight after 5.
Doggie dad has some good ideas, maybe I should try them and put my boots away a few nights a week.....
