I am a 72 year old retired nurse who lives with my husband of ten years and a Bichon Frise who owns us. I have struggled with my weight since I was 21 years old and weighed 118 pounds. It is time to let go of the struggle. Lose thirty pounds and learn how to maintain - and do it in a healthy way. I know I can do it with the Lord's help. He is greater than the sweets and caarbs that keep calling my name

When I first got the little weasel, someone at work suggested I get a baby carrier to strap him on my chest while walking (I'd complained that in the summer, it was tiring to carry him most of the walk). I told her the point was he was supposed to walk - we were on a dog WALK, not dog CARRY! In the winter he likes being inside my jacket, and actually acts as a hot water bottle for me. When I have to carry both chihuahuas in the jacket, one goes on my left, one on the right, and they peek out of the front. My back is starting to feel better, so I'll probably be insisting Spartacus joins us on the walks again - even if I do carry him 30 minutes out of 45.

Hey, gal! Yep, about a week and a half ago, I was walking the pups before work. Sun had already set, so it was getting dark. All of a sudden, Samurai was hanging back, and Spartacus (in my arms) was growling. Looked down, and here's a stray chihuahua bouncing around, playing with the pack. I saw some people outside and asked them to hold him while we hurried around the corner. But, after we hit the corner, here he was, bouncing along with us. He followed us over a mile, right into the yard and house. I temporarily kept him in the house (it was going to be near freezing, and I didn't want him out on the busy streets). I've been walking the pups along the same streets - no one has yelled out "hey, that's my dog!". Nothing in lost and found ads, no chip, collar or tags. I called him "Straggler" the first couple of days, then "Cocoa Bean" because of his coloring. Finally settled on "Scorpio". He really wants to be friends with Sparty, but Sparty's a fear biter. Sometimes, the little weasel will be calm. Right now, even from under the covers, he's doing his rabid dog act. Sheesh! Hard to hear the TV!

Scorpio is much younger and is learning to walk on lead (he had no clue the first few days). When it's cold & nasty, I'll pick him up, too. Spartacus still pulls his "too cold, too dark, too whatever" squats frequently, and gets carried for a bit. When I pick up both little guys and put them into my jacket, Sparty tolerates Scorp.

When I walked the pups in the afternoon after getting the wire removed from Samurai's jaw, I miscalculated a bit on the time. Ended up taking the little weasel to the groomers, too, so I could keep my own grooming appointment. Sparty, of course, only got a bath & brush, nails trimmed and teeth brushed. After my appointment, I picked him up ans walked him home. Couple of hours later, I left him home, walked over to to the groomers, and ransomed SamuraI & Shalako & walked them home.

The lobster dog isn't Spartacus, the little weasel, although the white around the muzzle certainly looks like him!
