A Different Walking Video

Many bloggers have been sharing walking videos, led by Khyra.  Today, even though it is not “Walking Wednesday,” we wanted to share a special walking video.

One firm rule at Chez Herd is that every dog is walked every day.  On the weekends, the walks tend to be longer hikes on some of the various trails that we are blessed with in our area.  But during the week, we walk a road near our house.  For most of the Herd, this, coupled with wrestling matches in the yard, is enough to burn off week day energy.

But young Miss Cheoah is still in her teenager / late puppy period.  Which means she has energy to spare.  Since she roughly resembles a kangaroo bouncing around the house, we had decided long ago that we needed to drain more energy.  Watching the Dog Whisperer one night, we knew what we had to do.

Yep, Cheoah is a treadmill master:

Couple of notes. First, the leash you see in the video is not connected to anything, it is draped across the bar. In the picture, it had just fallen (and I picked it up right after the picture).

Secondly, yes the bear on the table is holding a sign that says, “Spoiled Rotten Dogs Live Here.”

So, we offer today’s walking video:

    Cheoah has such co-ordination. I hope mum doesn’t get me one of those though.

    Khyra – Nope the weather worked perfectly and our dad was home for dinner with us, except he did not eat with us – he ate upstairs. Hrmph.

    Steve – Yes, that is a Diggler. A red one for the red heads and a grey one not in the picture for the Black and White squad. We stay color coordinated at all times.

    That’s really great! Did you know that Dad tried to teach Wilbur how to walk on a treadmill? He never really picked it up.

    PS. Mom is eying that scooter. Is it a Diggler?

    Hugs.

    Is THAT what you’re supposed to do on those things? I like sitting on ours, supervising Dad while he works out, or maybe napping on it, but I’ve never tried WALKING on it! WOWZERS! Learn something new every DAY!
    Play bows,

    Momma has been thinking about one of those lately. We’ve been having a problem burning off all of the boy’s energy too.

    I want one, too!! That looks like a lot of fun and Cheoah seems to be really good at it. Maybe that can be my birthday present. I’m going to start leaving hints for John and Kelly now.
