I just cannot go on one more "walk" with Kia. She was bad before, but now, ever since we got Chipper she's been worse.
The only way I can describe it is that she drags her feet and walks as slowly as possible so that she's way behind me, the leash taunt, and my arm and shoulder wrenched backwards. I'm now having pain issues.
I just don't get what Kia's deal is. According to the vet she's the picture of good health. She has no limps, has no issues running off leash at the park, and wrestles with Chipper constantly.
She gets plenty of water before, during, and after the walks during these hot days.
But lately she's dragging the second we're out the door. It's as if the walk is just too much to bear.
I can't take the looks anymore from strangers or the pain (both physical and mental). She obviously doesn't want to go for walks so I'm going to oblidge. From now on she gets potty breaks but Chipper will be my walking partner.
