I like to bring our Sandy for a five mile run every day.
I’m not up to that kind of running so I got an idea from our K8.
I let her [Sandy, not K8] out of the car and then drive for five miles at about 20 mph. Sandy runs like the clappers to keep up and she loves it. It’s great exercise for her.
The only snag is that once she got distracted by some sheep. Now, I don’t want her to be shot by some irate farmer for sheep worrying [how can sheep be worried? They don’t have enough brain cells], so I took to tying her to the car with a length of rope.
This has worked very well. But lately I’ve noticed something very sad.
She is getting old. She can no longer manage the full five miles.
I now have to drag her along the ground for the last mile.
