Hey, thanks for responding. It's been storming lately, and pretty chilly. I shaved our pup in preparation for summer, but because it's been wet and cold she shivers like crazy when we go out to potty and resists walking more than 10ft from our door. I don't have a coat for her at the moment (she out grew her puppy sweater from winter), and thought it would be kinda cruel to walk her when she didn't want to go. I've been playing lots of fetch with her inside and working on "stalk it" on toys. She sometimes does her "crazy puppy" runs around like a maniac for a few moments and then tires out lol. We don't have a treadmill, but would love to have one, lol. Our place doesn't have the room for it at the moment. I think it'll be nicer later this afternoon, so will take her on a walk and then a run through the local field. Hopefully this will stop the renovations, LOL.
