Working Like a Dog

My recent lack of activity aside, Ibis and I are both very athletic and try to get some form of exercise every day, or at the very least several times a week. We enjoy a variety of sports/activities -- volleyball, tennis, rollerblading -- and actually like going to the gym on a regular basis. So it's only fitting that we'd expect the same from our dog, right?

Owen is over four months old now, so we figured there's no time like the present!

First I went over his workout regimen.

Then I got him started on neck and back exercises.

Next up: loosening those teeth! (He lost three more Thursday & Friday)

Survey says: he likes it!

Sure, it only weighs a couple ounces and squeaks, but you have to start someplace.

I don't think I could keep up with any of the three of you.

Travis, we go slow for newbies... :)

Adam, did you have to add more W's? lol.

He's so fricking cute!

Adam said...

The damn comment page didn't wrap the text, so I tried again. ;-)

Owen is so cute!

Adam, I've taken the bandage off. It's all exposed and what-not.

Must... Not... Po- Aw, screw it!

Awww, what a cutie! He's so playful, up for anything, even a workout, LOL! :-)

He's such a little squooshy cutie! It makes me want to play with a puppy. Yet, when my dogs get playful, I urge them to calm down. I'm ambivalent about this playfulness thing.

Nadine said...

So cute!! In fact, I think I'll start lifting weights just like the one Owen has. :)

And I loved the Survey says comment! Took me back to Family Feud!

Erica said...

SO cute! That puppy looks cuter every time I see him :)

I agree with Travis- I couldn't either...LOL

Melanie Avila said...

Robin, I do understand the need to keep them calm. But once he gets started we do everything we can to wear him out!

Nadine, I can hook you up for a couple bucks. Yay, family feud!

Erica, he really is the cutest puppy ever. (well except for yours, of course)

I think playing with Owen is wonderful! He rocks! Playing with Robin is bad, because she's crabby and really likes to nap. Owen is a lucky little pupperoo.
