Primal Photo of the Day

Thanks to a good diet and lots of time spent playing outdoors Charlie is one happy pooch – Photo Josh Cooley

Does being outdoors make you feel this good too?  This energetic pup is Charlie, who after being abandoned by his first owners sat in an animal shelter for eight months.  He’s a very big Chesapeake Bay Retriever with boundless energy.  While in captivity he lost weight and looked sickly.  Then my friend Jim rescued him and brought him to his mountain home in Alma, Colo., where there is ample space to run, swim and play.  The property has a large meadow with beaver ponds where Charlie and Jim’s other two dogs swim and romp around.  I met Charlie when Jim first got him, and the dog was in poor condition.  It took a few months but with good diet and daily access to the outdoors Charlie now looks fantastic — and happy.  Eating well and playing outdoors benefits all living creatures.  Too often we are held in captivity by the daily grind and forget to eat well and get outdoors.  We can maximize lives by going outdoors as often as possible for a walk, a jog around the park, a hike in the mountains, a paddle around the lake — whatever it takes — and striving to eat well.  Have you enjoyed the outdoors today?

  1. Excellent photo and commentary. I think I will use it in my 7th grade “Healthy Living” class I am fortunate enough to teach. So beware…your post might make a difference in a young person’s life here soon!!
