You know that exercise is good for you because it helps you maintain a healthy weight, manage stress, sleep better and increase your energy level. The great thing is that activity does the same for your pets. Not only will exercise help them live longer, but an exercising animal is also more alert and more content.
Some people believe their pets misbehave to get even for being left alone; but in reality, the cause is usually boredom from lack of exercise. Many other behavior problems like chewing, digging and barking go away once your best friend starts getting regular activity.

My mother despised bad weather. Severe thunderstorms, ice storms, even ominous skies sent her into a dither, and usually also straight to the grocery store to load up on provisions.
Truth be known, I think Mama was afraid of bad weather. Maybe she had good reason. As a child growing up in Shreveport in the 1930s, she’d been through the fringes of a tornado.
Her father, my grandfather, used to tell of seeing a pine straw driven by the winds into a telephone pole at a 90-degree angle. But whatever was the cause, Mama and bad weather just didn’t get along, especially in the winter.
