Since Riley was your very own Personal Trainer on Thursday demonstrating how to properly execute (and enjoy) the Insanity Workout, she feels she needs to do a post on how to stay properly hydrated when exercising! She also is applying to become a regular writer on the “Miss Manners” newspaper column. Not sure how that last bit is going to work out though!
“First, you test out the temperature with your tongue…you want the water to be nice and cool, not too hot and not cold enough to give you a brain freeze!”
“Be sure to stick your whole snout down in the bowl to cool off your nose!”
“Also, it is the most fun if you splash water all over the ground/wall/upside-down flower pots and your paws…you know, you sweat from your paws and having nice, wet paws helps cool you off!”
“Oooh, oooh!! Blow bubbles in the water with your nose! There’s no scientific reasoning for this, it’s just a whole lot of fun!”
A quick, funny story from this morning–I might have overslept a little bit and Grandpa came to my room and opened the door a little bit so Riley could get out and go downstairs to go out to the bathroom and to eat breakfast. She was still sleeping when he opened the door. He said she jumped up on all fours and stood on the bed with her back arched and the fur sticking up on her back. I guess she was ready to be my guard dog until she realized it was just Grandpa and Chloe out in the hall.
Gotta go…the phone’s ringing! Must be Miss Manners calling! 🙂
