Sunday's "Living With Your Pet" Tips: The Ten Top Dog Sports

      Fabulous photo of me by John Clark of Clark Creative

Wanna get active with your dog? Thanks to the good folks at Better Homes and Gardens for providing this description of the 10 top dog sports that both you and your pet will enjoy. The list includes the usual suspects, like agility, dock diving and sheep dog trials for the herding breeds, but includes some activities we've not heard of: obedience competition, flying disc, earthdog and terrier trials, to name a few. Why not check out these sports to see if they're a good fit for you and your pooch? What we particularly like is that each of these competitions is both mentally and physically stimulating-a daily necessity for all dogs, but particularly for high energy and powerful breeds-and even for us mutts!

Today for example, Parental Unit and I are going to walk (about a block or two down the street) and watch the marathoners run by-woo hoo! That's mental and physical stimulation for ya!

P.S. Don't forget that tomorrow (at 8:00 pm EST) is the last day to enter to win a trio of fabulous prizes from Purina! We'll be announcing the lucky winner at sometime after 8:00 tomorrow evening. Good luck to all!

Yes, it does take quite a bit of extra time-that Parental Unit doesn't have either. And honestly she doesn't know where people find the time or energy! But I'll admit that she's taken a few baby steps by helping learn the names of my toys and having me jump over little hurdles at the dog park...but that's it for now! But if she hits the lottery...
