Spent most of last year walking with Nacho, taking a few photo's along the way. Nacho and I walked 553 miles taking 247 hours in 176 walks, replacing 3 sets of wheels on stand up walker, 3 pairs of walking shoes. For the first time walking all 12 months of the year! Nacho loves walking it's good for me also.

Using some of that time, to find ways to deal with the invasive, Asian carp!

It's Already March 2016, Nacho and I have walked every month this winter, putting in 118 miles so far. Walking is the easiest thing I'm able to do without my standup walker and Nacho, don't know where I'd be. The good thing is I only think about that then I can't open the bathroom door because, my hands are to weak to open it. Nacho saves me from thinking too much, about the abilities I've lost. Nacho makes friends with most dogs and humans effortlessly. When he senses danger he goes into guard mode, we make a good team and keep each other safe. Nacho and I spend much of our time outside when we can, the weather this winter has been mild. Getting out is nice, stuck in the house not a problem so far.
Learning a few lessons, so rolling is faster than walking. Losing balance, let go of walker regain balance, pick up walker roll on.
I'm doing good having Nacho is my bright spot everyday.
