And, of course, a belated Happy Pip and Puddles Appreciation Day! I hope that the festivities were absolutely insane!! :-D Well deserved titles and merriment were given!!
You might think that I'm a technologically advanced and crazy pup, waiting in a long line overnight when the new iPhone 10 comes out, cause, well, I'm a pup with a blog...but, you'll be surprised to know that I'm the complete opposite! I might have a laptop and a smart phone, but other than knowing how to type, write emails, and use the internets...I'm just your average doggie!
But, Domeek and I got excited this morning while tweeting because we came across the top 10 Must-Have Apps for Dog Owners! There were quite a few really cool apps: Tagg (a GPS collar attachment for wandering pups), iCam (watch your pup in real-time when you're at work or traveling), and Petoxins (an ASPCA app that lets you know all the plants and vegetation that are harmful to us)!
Our favorite app though was MapMyDogWalk, which is a fantabulous app that encourages physical fitness for both pup and human! You can log your favorite walkie locations, track how many calories that you burn during your training, and map out all your perfect routes using GPS! Kind of cool! :-D So, we downloaded the android app and had the perfect opportunity to use it this afternoon!!
Ok, so we might not have gone all crazy and walked 5 miles, but we did test this sucker out a bit at the Bayshore Park!
This is where we parked...
Ok Domeek, let's get this walk started!!
According to MapMyDogWalk, we climbed around 72 feet during the walk! Not too shabby for a sea level dude!
I even had to take a water (and dehydrated cheese) break at the peak, phew!!
Alright, we have time for a quick posing photo! ;-D
Time for the descent...I think the perfect kind of a path!
I'll take the high road and you'll take the low road...and I'll get theeeerrrreeee afore ye!!
We're still playing around and exploring the app, but from what we've seen so far...we're hooked! You can share your walks on Facebook, Twitter, and on your website (but we're still working on this one...not showing up how we want)! Pretty darn cool!
I give it 2 paws up!!
I'm sure that we'll be using it for most of our upcoming hikes...especially since it tracks distance!
Make sure to check it out...worth a couple of minutes in downloading (since it's free)!
Have a great weekend everyone!!
