sophie is inherently pretty lazy. but every few days, girlfriend wants to go on a long walk that even I am unsure she can do. hilariously, she’s all about leading the pack and going as quickly as possible away from the house, and then literally drags her paws as we walk back home. as much as these long walks demanded by my super short friend befuddle me, they’ve also given me a chance to clear my head and get into the right mindspace several times.
you see, on a long walk you have a chance to think. on long walks you can look around at the world, interact with strangers, and see things you’ve never seen before. long walks give you the peace of mind that you didn’t have at the office. having a furry friend to do them with really helps, but they should be done by everyone, really. if you’re having a rough day, week, or month, try taking a long walk like sophie and see what it does for you.
