Ready to break the cycle? It’s much simpler than expected. As a New Year’s public service, I present a four-step-plan to a happier you.
We run about 100 yards, my dogs stops to mark something. Then, we run to the next tree, telephone pole, or bush. (It’s surprising how much the bladder of a 21-pound mini-schnauzer can hold.) Sometimes he’ll skip a stop, deferring to my desire to keep moving; and I periodically accede to his desire to inspect a large clump of grass. Yet, ever onward we huff.
