Our Get Fit With Your Pet Month started last Saturday, the Sand Spring gang participated in the first ever Move Your Mutt-A-Thon put on by PetsMove.

#1 was going for a walk for me and a run/walk/grabass for the dogs. We started out at our house and walked through the snow, through the pine trees, through the marsh and then through the pasture back to our house again. This took about 40 minutes. While doing this I took some photos and video. Gambler and Glory had each grabbed a ball to carry along with during our outing. Nellie stole Glory’s red ball in the beginning of our walk and ran back to the house with it. I had to do all I could to call Nellie and have her come back and join the walk. She left the ball by the house so there was only one ball going on our walk and Gambler didn’t give it up very often.

#3 video of your pet’s moving. Here are 4 videos from our walk starting in the house as we were getting ready to join the Mutt-A-Thon and ending on our walk back to the house.

#4 Join the fun in the Mutt-A-Thon forum. Will be heading on over there. I did check out the fitness expo agenda which is packed full of great information in videos. If you haven’t done so you should go check them out along with the exhibit hall they have some great sponsor’s there.

I had a great time getting ready for the Mutt-A-Thon and participating in it, to be honest because of it I got out and did something with my dogs otherwise in this snow and cold I usually don’t do anything. Thanks PetsMove for putting this on and all the great incentive you give for getting out and moving with your mutt.

  1. Snow much fun! We love the snow so much too. That pic of Gman flying over Glory is awesome. We saw your videos after the mutt a thon. That was a fun event, just getting good video walking can be difficult for us.
