Words From a New Dog Owner

I adopted a dog last week and boy, I never knew how much of a sloth I had become. I live in a condo in an urban area, so I don't have the luxury of letting my dog run outside in a yard whenever she wants. I've got to strap on a leash and walk her to the nearest park... about 4 times a day. And to tell the truth, I'm enjoying it (even though she woke me up at 2 AM to go potty). I love her. And btw, I've lost 5 lbs since I got her. Now there's a bonus I hadn't expected.

If you are walking that dog four times a day and enjoying it, you're no sloth! Congratulations on the weight loss and a new friend.
