Went home for lunch so I could take the greys for a walk. We usually walk in the a.m., yet I spent an hour looking for something I had not yet unpacked (moved in Sept!).

Okay, so it was 29 minutes, not 30... but I'm counting it for the goal (smile).

Took the greys for a 29 minute, 1.6 mile walk today. If I'd realized how close it was to 30, I would have taken them one more block; however, I didn't look at the time until I was at my front door.

Hey, if you do 80 hours for your greyhounds over a long weekend, does that mean you've accomplished this goal for months & months? ;)

Oh my gosh! I did not sign up for this goal. I walk my two greys at least 20 minutes a day, six days a week. (signing up right now)

I am just wondering if people aren't tracking this goal. I know there are several that walk their greyts so I have often wonder why we aren't doing better in this category.

Thank you so much Bob Schwartz (I Run, Therefore I Am- Nuts!) for this lovely, funny insight into my life.

It sure does!! I need to start brushing their teeth too. I just can't seem to get in the habit! My girl doesn't have many left and the new boy I have will probably get alot removed when the time comes for his checkup.

But that counts, doesn't it? I walk Monica in the evening, and I also brush her teeth several times a week.

Well, I walk mine for about 30 minutes a day. I wish I could do more but it is so hot! I can only walk them in the morning.

Forgive me if I'm reading the results incorrectly, but it appears that we could do a LOT better with the goal of 30 minutes a week doing something for your greyhound... If you agree then let's do it!
