I'm a huge animal lover, and a big advocate for rescue. I worked at a humane society for a few years, and it broke my heart to see so many amazing homeless animals get passed by. I wanted to take them all home! I lost my big guy (the one in my profile picture) a couple years ago. I rescued him from a local shelter, and he was so awesome. He gave way more to me, than I could ever give to him. I'm so glad I came across this team!

It figures, at least to me, that if something as basic as the tides are affected by lunar cycles, why not the animals on this planet? <BR> <BR> <link>www.webvet.com/main/2008/05/06/lunar<BR>-cycles-and-animals?xid=nl_EverydayHea<BR>lthPetHealth_20130418 </link> Thu, 18 Apr 2013 04:43:55 EST This Weeks Points Leaders http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x39487x52971321 <BR> <BR> Hi team, here is this weeks points leaders. <BR> <BR> Sparkpoints - SPARKCHANTAL <BR> <BR> Fitnesspoints - SPARKCHANTAL <BR> <BR> Way to go SPARKCHANTAL again!! <BR> <BR> <em>243</em> <em>345</em> <em>244</em> Mon, 15 Apr 2013 05:34:17 EST bird http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=18883x39487x52947202 I know this is a dog & cat lovers team,but I have a bird question...I have an overgrown bush <BR> by my front door.I've noticed that I have a dove (nesting)? there.

I have 5 dogs & 2 cats! Me and my husband rescue stray dogs & cats with the intent to find them a new home but we usually fall in love with them. We have a lot of land so they have lots of room to roam. But my sweet boy Dusty stays inside with me. He is almost 10 years old and has been the greatest dog I've ever had, he his just like a child. I love him very much. I joined the team challenge to donate to a shelter once a month...I was so glad...
