A Paralegal and Her Dog Go to Boot Camp

A Paralegal and Her Dog Go to Boot Camp

Okay, I know how much many of my readers love their dogs (and their cats), and would love the idea of joining an outdoor fitness program where the pooches are welcome, too. So when I saw this Reuters story about a California boot camp for humans and their canine companions, I had to share the excerpt about the paralegal:

Shannon Payne, a paralegal, says she always loved running, but her Pomeranian Chihuahua mix, Sammie, was “too wild” when she tried to take him with her. He barked and growled at every passing dog so she ended up leaving him home then felt guilty exercising without him so stopped working out entirely.

Payne credits her 7.30 a.m. Burbank boot camp class for making Sammy comfortable around other dogs, giving him an outlet for releasing pent-up energy and making her feel safe enough to be able to leave him at home alone all day, sleeping.

“The class is just as good, if not better, than weight training classes I’ve taken at gyms, but with this one, I get to be with my Sammie,” Payne said.

I love happy endings.
