Be fit! Own a dog:

Did you know that there is a research showing that dog owners are more physically fit than people without a dog- because of the exercise dogs provide. Have a dog and walk every morning:

Hi antoinette! I've heard about this research you just mentioned. I agree to the fact that dog walking is not only good to the dogs but to the owners who walk with them too. I don't have anything against dogs but i can't say that owning a dog can be the only option to become physically fit. Of course, there are other ways like watching your diet, going to the gym or just finding spare time and do exercises just within your home.

Yap, there is a lot of way to be physically fit. One can never be healthy just by walking with their dogs but doesn't watch out on their diets. Argh! Happy posting!

Thanks for adding this interesting discussion. I never thought about your fit when you own a dog. It makes sense to me now why I kept my weight down when I used to have a dog. I don't have one now and only have my son and I am having the hardest time to lose weight. I guess I need a dog again.

Hope you'll have your dog. A better way to get a dog is thru adoptions. You and your son will have more fun with the dog walking together every morning. Have a great day ! Happy posting!
