awwww a little porker damn and I been trying hard! Thanks for all the advice and comments, I will keep up our walks and start making him actually TAKE the walk, no matter what.

usually we go for 3-5 milers mid day since I work at 4pm, so its been super hot. I don't get home til 1am so 5:30 is NOT Happening, lol. I will not let him NOT walk anymore, figured the heat and he didn't feel like walking and why should I force him, but I will go ahead and force him, I am not letting him dig his paws in anymore. He is gonna walk if it kills me I also used to let him stop and sniff the roses as many times as he wants. I will try to concentrate on walking and no sightseeing for the most part.

On days we don't go for 3-5 miles, I always take him 3 times a day about a half mile each around our house. We fetch for about a half hour and flirt pole for 15 minutes, maybe I will start increasing that? He then plays with his unbreakoball for about an hour or 2, depending how much time I have. He pants and herds it all over my tiny yard non stop, just loves that thing, but not sure if he gets a work out or just fun out of it? (it also causes him rawness on his toes from clamping it steady with his toe and his face. I hate cause it looks like it hurts so I try not to let him play all day everyday, but he would if he could).

Tye! WOW Penny looked like a whole other dog to me. I hope Mel stays the same to me, sniff sniff, lol. But want him to live long and healthy so no more ice creams after this last pack and I will not make another batch of biscuits for a while. I told Mel this morning. He didn't seem to care.

and is Blue the pup you took a picture of last week or so? On the side of the road? sorry I forget the name but WOW he looked all muscle and no fat! Hard to picture him with weight, lol.
