At Airedale Speed!!

Tales and Tails told us about the Idita-walk. We need to walk for 1049 minutes during February and March.
We were just wondering, if it takes us twice as long to get somewhere...
...because we look at the sights,
...Stop for a break,
....drink water out of little paper cups,
...look into every hole in the ground,
....stop to admire the golf carts
(next time, we should just go in this.)
Do our minutes still count?
We have 360 minutes now!
689 to go, whew!

Wyatt and Stanzie

"These paws are made fur walkin' and that's just what they'll do,
one of these days these paws are going to walk US RIGHT TO YOU!!"
(Don't wait up, it's gonna take awhile...BOL)

  1. We think every minute should count! The rules don't say you can't slow down and ENJOY your walk, do they? We think QUALITY of time is just as important as QUANTITY!

  2. We will leave the light on, Wyatt - c'mon over.

    Leisurely walks are the best, don't you agree?

  4. This looks like a challenge and I will look into it later on! I don't know the rules yet but I think all of your stops for water, etc, should count because at least you are pawticipating and that's half the battle!

  5. Yes I believe they still count!!

  6. Well now I pawsonally think every second spent INTENDING to Walk DOES COUNT. OUR idea of a nice Walkie IS a bit differend from a Two Legger's you know. I mean have you ever seen one stop to smell the peemail??? they need to lighten up.

  12. Every minute counts in my book! BOL! We just crossed halfway this weekend, but the weather is going to make it tough for us to make any progress this week. It's supposed to be cold and rainy all week. We're at 540, though, so we're happy with that! Those weekend hikes help me catch up a lot!

  13. It's fun to stop and take in the sights (and smells) on a walk!! That's going to be a lot of walking to do, but I'm sure you will enjoy every bit of it!

  20. The golf cart idea is a winner, Wyatt - you at the wheel and Stanzie riding shotgun and your ears blowin' in the breezes. We love it!

  26. "Start walking paws"!

  27. Wyatt, Of course every minute counts.....all those good smells MUST be investigated.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hey Wyatt!
    Wow, what a pawesome thing to do! That stuff is a lot of hard work. Peeps don't always appreciate the effort involved in doing thorough investigations and checking out every detail of a good walk. If this was designed by a dog, you can bet that every minute and sniff will count! Great pix and enjoy the walk time.

  29. I "walk" at 'dale speed, too. mama says it means she doesn't get a very good workout b/c I like to stop and smell every blade of grass! hehehe
    Love,
    Janie

  30. Well yeah, you can't walk and not stop to sniff the roses.
    Love your little song at the end : )

  31. I think it counts...Good luck getting your minutes!!

  32. What a lovely walk you had Wyatt and Stanzie! I haven't heard of the Idita-walk before and just visited the site - very cool! Thanks for sharing. I think you should be allowed to play catch-up in the golf cart since there's only a few days left in February!

  33. I think it counts...it's actually a marathon-training strategy.

  34. So nice to meet you Wyatt-I'm so excited to have a fellow Oregonian gardening friend!

  35. That sound like quite a challenge. I'm sure checking out all the things along the way counts but I don't know about that time on the bench, lol!

    Sorry I haven't been by lately, I've been sick as a dog, oops, well you know what I mean. Feeling better now though so Sunny and I can get back on the treadmill. He doesn't care if there aren't any sights to see, he just likes to go fast!

  36. We're sure you're going to do it, with or without the golf cart's help! Have fun! Oscar and ros

  37. Sounds like a lot of fun, you have some beautiful scenery that we surely envy you for!

    We found you through Rubi and we will be back to read about your future adventures!

  38. Pawsome sights! Well of course they count; even more so because your paw is in it. Uhm… I meant to say, your heart is in it :o)))

    Keep up the pawsome walk you guys.
    Smooches,
    Neeko :o)
    P.S. We use a baby bottle for our long walks and the water stays cold longer. Check out my postie: http://neekospaulding.blogspot.com/2010/07/monday-evening-turns-into-sunday.html
