My dog, Bella, and I have been trying to walk more often lately. She is a high-energy Blue-Tick Hound and needs much more exercise than she's been getting recently.
We made a little trail up the mountain which turns out to be the perfect 30 minute walk. It's nice and peaceful and passes by several small creeks (my favorite!), and is secluded enough that I can walk (and sometimes pray) in private while I exercise.
We are quite the sight: her and her skinny, energetic self, and me huffing and puffing up the hill, but hey, soon I'll be skinny too ;)
