Must-Read: Workouts With Your Best Friend
I do not have a dog. Yet! One of my life goals is to, at some point, be able to both afford and have the commitment issues under control enough to own a dog. This would hopefully be a nice stepping stone to other things, like an actual house, or maybe even a wife. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves just yet. Let’s focus on the dog.
Why a dog instead of a cat? The main obvious answer is that, come on, you can actually play with a dog as opposed to those stupid cats that just claw out your eyes if you go to pet them and wait for you to die alone in your apartment so they can actually fucking eat you! But even better than playing, is that you can actually jog with your dog. Like it’s an actual human being!
AskMen.com realizes this important bonus of owning a dog, which is why they went ahead and made one of their top 10 lists regarding the best man-and-dog workouts. Number 10 is both completely obvious and amazingly dead-on:
No.10 Play frisbee
If there’s one thing that every dog loves to do, it’s play catch. Grab a Frisbee and head outdoors. Pass it over to your dog and then run with him as he goes to retrieve it. Once it’s back in your hand, throw it another 20 to 30 feet away and both of you can begin chasing after it again.
C’mon. Like that doesn’t make you want to go out and get a dog right now!
