All of my previous adult Malts have needed to walk a mile or more a day and then play fetch. I bought older pups so they got into that long of a walk pretty fast. Only one dog, Jonathan, is not much for exercise. He'd rather lay on the couch all day! Mikey has only not needed that much exercise (we use to do at least 2 miles/day) since he got really sick.
We just got home from Cornell last night. His ultrasound looked good other than kidney changes (he has early kidney disease in addition to everything else, but not a big deal right now). They tweaked his meds and after a week of the steroid dose change we're reducing the fat in his food by replacing a portion of kibble with tofu (or if he doesn't tolerate that eggs or pasta or something). He had a bad day today with nausea and a rumbling tummy, but is sleeping comfortably now. He also strained his back last week on top of everything else. He is doing better since he got acupuncture and will go in again for that next week.
