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

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!

Samurai seems to be feeling better every day, especially now that his jaw is wired stable. He's very cautious about what he eats. I just offered him a crispy cheese dog treat. The other 2 were gobbling theirs. I had to show Samurai that it broke easily (crumpled the first one in front of his nose) so he would eat it & the 2d one.

Because of his neck wounds, he can't wear the cone of shame. My local vet (as opposed to the Emergency Vet that sewed him up) wants me to put him in a collar as soon as the neck stitches are out. Dr. Korber is afraid he'll paw at the stent under the chin holding the wite together and either move the wires or the little plastic doo-dad on the wire tips will come off and he'll scratch his paw.

Sam looked so sad yesterday when Imgot back from walking the others almost 2 hours, that I put them in the house and took him for a slow 10 minute walk around the block. He got to pee on stuff, so he was happier.
