I went kayaking with Wynston for my first time on August 9, 2018. I literally had no idea what I was doing. I did zero research before Wynston and I sat in a kayak and were shoved into the lake by a dock attendant. I learned as I went and was prepared with what I thought I would need. Turns out, I didn’t do too badly! It was quite an incredible first experience and it prepared me even more for the next outing! Kayaking with a dog is different than going out alone. If you’re new to kayaking with your dog, take my word for it – it’s more fun and relaxing than stressful. To get you started here are some beginner tips for kayaking with dogs.
Today Matt and I took McKenzie Rae, Khloee and Wynston to the Superstition Wilderness area to check out a new trail. We chose to try the Hieroglyphic Trail, as it was said to be a fairly easy, short hike. Well, it turned out to be not so easy.
As obesity continues to be a growing issue in America, we’re learning that it’s not just affecting people – it’s hurting our animals also. It’s quite simple, really. If we get lazy, our animals suffer. If we sit on the couch eating potato chips all day, your dog lays around and does nothing but eat. Without you, your dog cannot lead a healthy life. Your dog cannot take itself on a walk or run on the treadmill to lose weight. It’s up to you to be there for your dogs and cats and give them the healthiest, longest life you can. So it’s time to face the facts.
Check out some photos of my beautiful kids, while out on a gorgeous afternoon walk!
Dogs show us unconditional love. All they want in return is, you guessed it, love. Let’s show our canine companions how much we appreciate them by making them as happy as they make us.
