Steve:

I used to have two Siberian Huskies. It was a necessity to walk them in the mornings before I did anything else. For probably 3 years (they were rescue dogs) I walked, briskly, between 30-45 minutes every morning.

It didn't work for me.

I think the volume of walking has to be much higher than that to see results.

Try tying a juicy steak to you and see how much the pace might pick up.

Huskies can run.

And they run best when it's really cold out.

Picture this:

It's 5 AM. The streets are covered with snow, and it's extremely cold out.

I'm on my mountain bike, holding on to two huskies, one's 55 lbs, one's 75 lbs.

For the first mile, they pull me. It's quite a rush.

The one stops to poop. Like sprint sprint sprint poop. I was holding onto the leash too tightly.

I am basically thrown down a 30' ditch.

The huskies wait for me at the top, grinning.

So they were fired from their "rescue" jobs, is that what you were saying? lol

No, one took to snapping at my infant daughter, and the wife freaked out. The new owner of the first dog took the other one, because he liked her too.

So, I'm missing my huskies, but have the awesome boxer Chewbacca instead, and Piper, the Trash Pomeranian puppy.
