Interesting Animal - Dogs

The average dog owner gets more exercise than someone who goes to the gym.

(In fact, according to the national dog walking index, compiled by Mountain Warehouse, in the UK most dog owners go for around 433 walkies, and cover on average 548 miles a year, roughly the distance from London to Aberdeen.

According to researchers from Michigan State University, nearly half of dog owners exercise an average of 30 minutes a day at least 5 days a week. By comparison, only about a third of those without dogs got that much regular exercise.

Of course it doesn't count if you employ a dog walker.)
