When I adopted Dreyfus last year, I made a promise to him (and to
myself) that I would walk him twice/day, every day, weather permitting.
A big strong fella like Dreyfus needs exercise, after all!
To make the math easier, I made a goal to walk him 700 times
during my first year with him.
With three weeks to go before our anniversary, I had a comfortable
"20-walk cushion" to make my target of 700.
Unfortunately, his recent health issues caused me to blow through
the entire cushion.
I think I ended up just barely missing my intended goal of 700
Here's an interesting statistic: The shortest of our walk routes
is 3/4 mile, and the longest is almost two miles, I probably walked
Dreyfus at least 600 miles this year! That's 4200 dog-miles!
