Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
help me exercise with my new puppy! [pics, of course]
Well the good news is that he adjusted to the crate. The bad news is that I caved because he's adorable and he's only in the crate when we're not there (rarely) so he sleeps firmly tucked under my armpit pretty much every night.
The worse news is that now he's about 7-8 months old, over 60 pounds, and has the attitude of a pissed off teenager.
Here's the loveable bastard now, looking all smug and shit.
So anyway, he's started barking for attention, running circles around the apartment, and generally being kind of a little shit. It's all good, we discipline him, he's getting better, but it's obvious he wants to run and play and he needs more exercise than I'm giving him. I want to start taking him for a LONG walk (30 minutes, 1-2 miles) every day but I was wondering how that would affect him? I've got a harness for him so the leash isn't around his neck the entire time and he's pretty good on the leash overall, but he's a huge furball and was born in the winter. This is his first summer and I don't want him getting heat stroke or anything.
I've started running in the mornings (which he is not invited to join, yet) but in the afternoon I want another good workout so I thought this would be nice.
What do I need to look out for? Do I need to carry water and a little bowl or will be be alright for half an hour without it, even in the oh so horrible southern heat?
Help me H/A, help me and my puppy get into shape.
Finally, at what point could I look at taking him jogging with me in the mornings? Is that even do-able?
