I heard the thumping of feet and the clicking of claws in my hall and decided to go see who was making all the racket and why. I was met with the sight of my daughter running up and down the long hall with the dog on her heels. I asked her what she was doing and she promptly told me that the dog was getting fat and that he needed to be exercised..lol…so that is what she was doing. Excercising the dog. From the pictures, you can see that it probably was the other way around…the dog excercising her!
