I am happy. We’ve started taking Pluto out for walks.
We go out 3 times a day: in the morning, lunch/afternoon and evening. We’ve started slow, only half an hour each time
In fact half an hour seems just right for Pluto at the moment. He does all his business outside and that means less cleaning for me. He socializes with other dogs (the neighborhood is full of dog owners). It also means that Marlanu’ is less stressed by Pluto.
I also love the fact that Pluto is so tired when he gets home that I can actually do more things around the house. And in all of this there is a bonus for us as well. We get our daily exercise.
