New Year’s Resolutions-We all make them.  This year let’s try to keep them.  Let’s make attainable goals and have the mindset to follow through.  Probably the biggest resolution is to get fit.  Well if you have a dog this can be easier than you think.  Take your dog for a walk.  Great cardio for both of you!  Instead of complaining about the cold get out and enjoy it.  Layer up and hit the trails.  A cold crisp day is just the thing to clear the cobwebs from your mind and your dog will love it.  New smells, new p-mail to check, the list goes on and on.  Not ready for a walk?  Get out and play in the yard.  Throw the ball, play tug of war, build a snowman for your dog to knock down.  Who cares as long as you and your dog spend time together.  Too nasty to go outside?  Get off the couch and play a game of hide and seek with your dog.  Hide some treats or toys or even yourself and let your dog find you.  He will love it because he is spending the time with you.  That’s what it is all about.  Spend the time with your dog and you will reap the benefits tenfold.  So there is the big resolution that you really can keep!
