ATTQOTD: no pets right now since my son has allergies. In my teens and college, I had a flat-coated retriever that would swim with me in the lake we lived on. I loved throwing a stick into the water and we would both jump in and race to it. I miss having pets! Sometimes while running here in our neighborhood, DH and I will see a woman running with a tiny dog in a pet stroller. It's a good thing that dog is so small. It absolutely freaks out when we run by her. If it were any bigger it would eat us alive!
