Dogs are our bridge-- our connection to who we really are, and most tellingly, who we want to be.
� Patricia B. McConnell

Solitude shared with animals has a special quality and rarely turns into loneliness. --
May Sarton,

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort---Herm Albright

"She was not quite what you would call refined. She was not quite what you would call unrefined. She was the kind of person that keeps a parrot." - Mark Twain

My Goals:
Get fit enough to keep up with my dogs.

My Program:
Control portions, exercise consistently & explore food groups other than chocolate.

Personal Information:
I'm a SWF 50-something native Oregonian. My dogs are my kids & my reason for getting fit.

I enjoy gardening--flowers by preference & veggies for health. I love old dogs & old movies, reading British cozy mysteries, non-fiction history, and all-things-dog.

I spend probably too much time reading dog training lists, books & Sparkpeople!

    LOL thank you for the blog comment. It's so true, Aussies will play fetch for eternity if they could. I try to play with her as much as I can, sometimes it gets overwhelming lol. She is always dropping something at my feet, sitting so sweetly, her tongue hanging out looking at me with those dang amber eyes lol..

    Dogs..cats..animals..they are all so wonderful.

    Have a great day!

    Thanks for visiting my Spark Page! The dog I am pictured with is my grand dog! He is a Springer and is the sweetest most loyal dog I have ever known! I just love him. I do not have a dog of my own because my husband does not want a pet at this time! He had many pets through the years and is over the responsibility!

    Thanks for your comment on my Daisy - she really is happy. She loves being outside in the snow, her mom not so much. But who can say no to a puppy looking at you with those eyes that say please, please, please!!! She certainly keeps me moving!

    Wed. we went to "The Painted Turtle". There were about 20 volunteers, and we put 80 chairs together. They came in huge boxes, and we had to figure out what was what lol. The directions were not very good, but Dennis managed to figure it all out. I actually used our drill!! Camp was starting the next day, but all 80 chairs were put together.

    I'm not sure if I remember the names of the Sunflowers. I think the lighter ones are "Little Becka, ad the darker ones are "Autumn Beauty" Dennis didn't save the package.
