      Loving the Fall Weather - Rocky's World Expanding

      The weather has really cooled down in the last week or two. Which has really significantly helped Rocky's panting! I am walking him a little farther every few days (but i need to be careful as the panting can come on anytime leading to is being stuck!). and 2-3 walks per day.


      Looks like fall will being a bit of a breather for us.

      Having said that, his back end is getting a bit weaker and i know we won't ever get back to last winter but improvement is always a relief his gait looks super wonky.

      We made it past my first two goals. Past the one year anniversary of pen's death (end of July) and past August. next goal is two months (his 12 year gotcha day and 13.5 birthday).

      He looks like he still enjoys a stroll while sniffing.

      So glad the weather is giving Rocky a break to get out and about. While his back end may be slowing down, any exercise he can do to keep up muscle mass is important.

      Sending hugs to you sweet Rocky

      I'm happy to hear he's been able to broaden his horizons a bit due to cooler weather! Now what do I smell over here?

      What a sweetheart. You and he are overcoming those challenges...so glad the temperatures have cooled off enough for you to enjoy walks again.

      Keep it up, Rocky! You are doing great!

      It's cooled down here too so we can go for longer walks.

      That's good but not today, I bet. Very humid here, I bet he doesn't like that. Or won't if it hasn't reached you yet.

      thanks guys. we are adding very little at this point but it's just nice to adding vs subtracting no matter how little

      we got out twice before it was too humid. but probably good for me to scale back a wee bit for a day or two. september will be hit and miss with some days a bit warm
