Our dog, Sunny, hasn’t been getting as much exercise as he should. If I take a walk on our treadmill, he just watches.

Of course, Sunny goes outside, but he doesn’t run around by himself in his fenced yard.

Today I was able to take Sunny for a walk down the road. The icy road and shoulder had melted yesterday and today. It was 48 degrees here.

We both enjoyed our outing.

Sunny kept looking for a way over the plowed snow. He never found anything that suited him so he stayed close to the road and me–he didn’t want to get stuck in deep snow again. When that happened to him a while back he panicked, thrashing to get out.

Today was a much better walk for both of us.
