Dogs Need Downtime

Dogs like people get tired; their bodies need rest too.  Bud is five now, so I watch his activity levels to ensure he doesn't overdo it.  When he swims, I time him so he stays in the 30-40 minute range.

Some days, he gets sore- just like I do.  When I see him favoring his back knee, we stop.  That's when I say "okay, we're taking a down dog day!"  It's okay to have down days sometimes.  It gives us time to stay home, regroup and treasure our time together. Here's a picture of Bud and Batman having a down day:
