Spring Walks For Old Dogs

IMG_0369Now that the weather has turned to Spring, walks are happening more frequently.

Since River is still learning leash manners, I usually walk her by herself. That leaves old man Bear all alone at home, wishing he could go.

Today, I decided he got his own walk. He was so excited. He hasn’t been on walks since his arthritis kicked in and caused him to limp a lot.

But these days, he’s like a young kid. He’s running around the yard. He runs up the stairs. He jumps up on the couch. No limps. No sign of old age.

We only went on a short walk – and he was going slow by the end of it. But he was still super excited.

Nothing like seeing a happy dog.
