People look at you funny when you're a big older guy walking alone. It's not as bad if you put on some workout clothes and walk faster, but what if you just like to walk for the sake of walking? Since I got Mr. Wilson, people don't quickly move to the other side of the street when they see me coming, they walk right up to me and say hello...to Mr. Wilson! After a while they might notice me and say hello, but it's the Schnoodle that gets all the love. And there's nothing better than a nice snooze when the walking is done.
