At 14 1/2, Buddy is content walking in the fields with me or taking walks in town. He still occasionally will gallop in glee across the yard or run along the lawn tractor. I have to watch him on the in-town walks because he wants to go further than he physically can now, over-tires and starts to drag his back paws a bit, so I cut him down to two aproximately blocks out and two back.
Rey just turned 2 and is FA, has to be kept on a leash, so she can only run as fast as I can, which really isn't very fast. It's a shame. She really likes to zoom and I can't trust her to, nor can I afford the fence I'd like to put up. So I chase her around the couch at night and let her have her zoomie time. She also likes to run and slide in the basement. She backed out of her collar one night and just ran as fast as she could, racing across the yard in big circles in absolute glee. I wish I could let her do that. Tried a friend's fenced in acre, but Rey was too busy freaking over the newness of it there.
Both my dogs get walked at 10:00 a.m., around 1:00 p.m., right before work at 3:00 p.m., my dinner break and both work breaks. If it's a nice day, then the time between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. (when I start work) may be hours of outdoor exercise and snooping around. Oh, and there's the baby pools, too. Buddy lays in his, Rey furiously paddles and bites the water playing.
