That's one of the great things about dogs. You have a built in excuse to go out for as many walks as you wish. :>)
And speaking of walks, there's nothing like walking on a narrow strip of pedestrian path on a regular basis to make a person more aware of why the speed limit in a residential area is 25 miles an hour. There are days (when I feel particularly vulnerable) when I fervently wish for speed bumps to be installed. This was one of those days. Good weather brings out more pedestrians and also seems to have an effect on how much pressure is applied to the accelerator.
Please, attend to your speedometer, slow down, enjoy the sights and smell the fresh air!
