Default Update on becoming a responsible dog owner

so it's been nearly a full week since I had my little revolution. This week has been really busy (well business is slow but the rest of my life is crazy)
Going to the gym, riding my horse and working can keep me out of the house from 7 in the morning till 9 at night.
But everyday this week I have woken up at 6:30 or earlier to take the dogs for a walk. They also have gotten walks every evening (my mom comes with me for most of those). So they are being walked for half an hour twice a day. I have kept the dog area clean and my mom really hasn't had to do anything for the dogs.
Anyways just thought I would give you that update.

good on you. I need to work on getting into a routine with bUster's excercise mainly.
I was thinking about getting up at 4:30 every morning, its beautiful and cool and surprisingly light. Plus if i go that early it will mean no matter what shift I have I'll be able to geta walk in early.

I've also found the days I keep busy I feel more fullfilled, yesterday I got up, walked Buster, came home, checked chaz then got ready for work. Went to work, mum picked me up after, I walked down with my sister, bought some dinner and wandered aroudn the shops for a while amn walked home. Was much more intersting than coming home and watching TV for a few hours.

It makes you feel a lot more positive doesn't it?

My mum still does the poo rounds but she actually doesn't mind it, she's a bit of a perfectionist and doesn't mind picking over the yard every couple of days, otherwise I'd give her a hand.
