Dear dogs of Canada

Who’s a good widdle pup? Who wuvs tummy wubbs? Yes you dooo! Yes you dooo!

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, it’s time to be serious fur a moment and bark about something important to every one of us Canadian canines: our human owners.

These tall, food-dispensing people are most definitely a special breed all their own. And they certainly take good care of you—all the long walkies, post-dinner plate licking privileges, sleepy times, useful and ridiculous accessories they buy you, and ol’ fashioned love and affection they give sure gets your tail wagging.

But sometimes things can be a little ruff on them.

Pawnder this for a moment: is your dog-loving human taking as much care of themselves as they are you?

Thing is, you may get to run around the park a bunch, but your human also needs to take a minimum of 10,000 steps a day. Sounds like a whole woofin’ lot of ground to cover, but how about you suggest breaking the exercise up with them throughout your doggy day—everything from a game of fetch in the yard to an after-dinner stroll works.

It’s easier than you think to get your human up and moving, and with a bit a practice they’ll be well trained to stay as active as you are.

Barkingly Yours,

Spot the Family Dog
