December was a little rough on our fitness routines, between holiday preparations and get togethers, and Sheba recovering from surgery. Luke and Cricket still got play time in the yard, while I threw a ball lightly on the deck for Sheba so she didn’t feel totally left out; and Sheba was also getting some short walks.
Luckily just before Christmas Sheba was all healed up and ready to get back to playing, and we got a few inches of snow just in time for that! The crew is so happy to be back to normal play and so am I.
We are not making any New Year’s resolutions per se, but I know I need to get my act together and not only continue with daily yard play, but add some variety in as well. The snow can be rough on everyone’s joints so we have to start out with shorter play sessions until we know how everyone does. I plan to add more walks back into our routines, and I’m hoping for more snow so I can get out my snowshoes as well.
The crew has also really been having fun playing indoors with new toys, and I want to get back to more training with everyone as well as nose work games on days we might be stuck inside. Up until now, our weather had been so warm we didn’t have to think much about being stuck inside!
