Today’s SHELLZAM! “Walk This Way” by Aerosmith cover by Run DMC.
Why? Today’s walk was a turning point for Chewy and I. It’s kind of surprising what you can learn from walking your dog! The reason this walk was so important is because I made changes! The last few times I tried to take Chewy for a walk he was not interested at all. What did I do? I Googled, “What’s wrong with my dog he doesn’t want to walk.” Of course, I didn’t enter in the search field, “What am I doing wrong – my dog doesn’t want to walk.”
My findings? One, he was bored! I kept taking him on the same walk all the time. Two, I would be on my phone the entire time. I wasn’t making the walk about our time together. I was treating our walks as if they were a chore. Apparently, Chewy was probably sensing my disinterest in the walk, so he was disinterested also! Today? We took a new path. And.. the only time I was on my phone was to take pictures of his adorable little face. The outcome? I learned I should’ve googled “what am I doing wrong”! As soon as I made these slight changes Chewy was racing down the street. Sometimes, it’s just a little change in direction that can make a huge difference.
Have you learned something from one of your pets?
