I spent a good portion of my childhood on a pair of roller skates. I never got into the whole in line skating thing. I am very comfy on an old fashioned roller derby 4 wheel set of skates. So comfy, in fact, that this week my husband bought me a new pair of skates (to keep my daughter company on her new pair). And I learned that it is a really, really fun way to walk my Aussies. Or run them, actually.
For the past couple of nights I have skated around the park with my roller derby doggies pulling me along. We get going fast when they are running. Flying around the park, everyone is happy!
And I haven't fallen once so far. It's like riding a bike- I haven't forgotten a thing about skating. Three trips around the big park and we are all exhausted and ready to settle for the night.
The dogs are so cute when they see me putting my skates on, whining and jumping around and going to the door. It's supposed to rain tonight and for the next few days so we'll have to put the derby on hold for a few days.
So give it a try. Grab your skates, the leashes, and a little old 80's mojo and head out. :)
