As I've said on the blog many times, our main way to keep Rita fit is just a LOT of walking. But one of her favorite ways to stay fit is to have a play date.
This is Rita's best friend, Dakota:
Normally, Rita goes to the beach with her three times a week. But I've only
gone back to the beach a few times since The Worst Walk I Ever Took (quick sum-up if
you don't know - Dakota and I were both hit by a strange man with a
stick. I'll let that sink in for a minute... I know... right??). Anyway, it's not fear for myself that keeps
me from going back - it's fear for Rita. We're planning to go back once
everyone's back in school and the beach is quieter. And even then, we
won't be going 3 times/week anymore.
So this summer, to get more exercise in, we've been having play dates once/week with Dakota. (And sometimes Reggie too!) They love to wrestle (Dakota has taught Rita some great boxing moves).
Does your dog have a best friend? Do they meet up for play dates?
