This morning an elderly neighbor was getting out of his car as Izzy and I walked by. He said, “That dog is lucky. No matter what the weather conditions, it gets a walk every morning.” He-he! He might think Izzy is the lucky one, but I think differently. If it wasn’t for Izzy, I wouldn’t have the motivation to get myself up and out of the house every morning to enjoy the sun on my face, watch the animals start their day with play, or get my joints moving. While Izzy is definitely a lucky dog, I think maybe I am just as lucky!

How wonderful your neighbor noticed!
Please stop by my blog for a chance to win some amazing Pilot FriXion pens, I know the kids would love to have them:
Your both lucky to have each other!
Our four legged fur babies tend to make us keep going! But they so do appreciate our love 🙂
In the two months between my previous owner (cat) died and Lucy arriving in my life, I realized how much having a pet made me move. I lost quite a lot of function in those 8 weeks. Then Lucy came home with me and I hurt like mad for 3 weeks while my body got used to moving around again.
It's National Pet Month – thanks to my kitty for keeping me strong and flexible!
The way I see it, you're good for each other. I would hate to live without our pets, they provide us much laughter, company and support. On days I don't feel good, Misty knows and will put her day on hold to lay next to me on the couch.
I often say that my dog has saved my joints and my sanity because I know if I don't get up and start moving, neither will she!
