New Years Resolutions for You and Wolfie

You know all those New Years Resolutions that you make every year and never keep?  A great way to make sure you keep them is to have a friend help or to help a friend.  Why not engage Wolfie in the process?

EXERCISE


"I am going to exercise and loose those five extra pounds this year!  This is a great idea, let's do it with Wolfie.  Start taking long walks with him.  Get out in the back yard and throw the Frisbee or just throw tennis balls.  If your Vet approves, go on bike rides with him (no, he does not have his own bike!) or roller blade with him.  This builds your bond and gets you both into shape!



START EATING RIGHT
The new year is a great time to start respecting what we put into our bodies, as well as Wolfie's.  Get rid of the chips and the cookies.  Stop making the fast food drive through your restaurant of choice. 

On the same thought, look at the ingredients in Wolfie's dog food.  I want to see a meat as the very first ingredient and I don't want to see "by product" following the meat.  Next, I don't want to find corn in the list of ingredients.  If Wolfie's food fails these two tests, it is like our fast food.  We all know what that means.  If you aren't sure what kind of food might be best for Wolfie or where to get that food, please contact us and we will be happy to provide you with some suggestions.

ENTERTAINMENT
Let's starting to get out to see some of our favorite movies, get to that play that we always wanted to see, cheer for our favorite sports team.  Let's do anything that gets us out of the house and into the "real world".  What a wonderful thing to start for our lives in 2011!

This is a great thing, but (again) let's make sure that Wolfie has the opportunity to enjoy the same quality of life.  Let's make sure that we start to socialize Wolfie with going to Panera Bread or your local outside Bistro. Let's take Wolfie to the local Doggie Day Care for a morning or afternoon of socialization.  I bet that Wolfie would love to go with us to pick up our kids or to get the laundry.  All these things are entertainment diversions that we can share with our favorite pet.  Let's make sure that we put them in motion and enhance Wolfie's lifetime experience!

These are some great ideas to get both you and your best friend into shape!  Start working them and you and your pup will be the better for it!
