My day starts with the sound of 4 paws gingerly walking across the hall and into my bedroom. A gentle woof, followed by a more demanding wow, make sure I’m wide awake! My Indie dog Kaya, is all set for the day’s routine. A long walk around the lake, followed by a gentle run up a steep slope, and finally a cool down jog in the forest. The morning air is crisp and cold, the sky a deep blue, with the sun’s ray reflecting off the water. What more is there to life than beginning each day with this beautiful routine. Fitness and health are just happy by-products of being blessed with the love of my four-legged companion.
