Bella and Exercise (Map My Fitness)

BellaI grew up wanting and begging my parents for a dog of my own.

Of course, all I ever heard was…
– Who is going to feed the dog?
– Who is going to bath the dog?
– You know they cost a lot of money……
– You know you are allergic to dogs…..

Fast forward to my sophomore year in college… I made up my mind that I was going to purchase my very first dog with my tax refund check. Wouldn’t my CPA of a dad be proud. HAHA

I knew I wanted a white girl maltese that was full bred but they were EXPENSIVE. I finally saw an ad for breeder in a small town outside of Lubbock. I called the lady and she had one little girl available and it became a DONE DEAL.  I was completely smitten with my new tiny maltese dog named Bella.

Bella is now 8 years old and tad on the heavy side.  Homegirl does not like to exercise a lot (or at all) but because she is such a tiny breed the weight can cause a lot of issues.  Maltese dogs are definitely lap dogs and not run around the house family dogs.  They tend to stick to one person (thats me) and they are totally fine with that.

Purina Pro Plan has teamed up with Map My Fitness to get you active with your pets.  I know for me, I am always looking for excuses to exercise but I truly love my pets.  Not only do I need to take care of my health but theirs as well since I took on the responsibility of being a dog owner.

There is currently a Leash On Challenge going on at Map My Fitness.  It has already started but its got a couple more weeks to go.  You can log your exercise with your dog and be entered to win daily prizes including a Year’s Supply of Dog Food.  (You know that can get expensive…)

It’s time for us to get active with our pets and kids!  No more being obese and not exercising.  I highly encourage you to check out Map My Fitness for your own exercise routine and now for your pets.

ENJOY ~ Meagan
