I love pitties!! They are the sweetest babies. I'm sorry to hear about your mom, but I'm glad hear pup had a good home to go to. And I'm sure her dedication and need to walk is helping you out as well, that's a great way to think about the "chore" of walking the dog! :D

Happy to see another member returning (it's the story of my life it seem for the past few years). Welcome to this group too. I originally joined and didn't have a dog though I have grown up with them all my life. That has since changed as my family adopted a pit bull from my mother since she is getting older and doesn't have the energy or strength to take care of this medium-sized gentle diet (she had a heart attack late last year).
It's amazing now that she has adapted. Every day she goes and stands by the front door and looks at me and whines to say you need to take me for a walk. I love their dedication. It makes it easier to stay motivated yourself.
My pup Pookie loved to chase, too. She was quite the backyard hunter, but she loved her walks too. It's amazing how they know the words leash and walk and even where their leashes are kept. We couldn't even open the closet door where we kept Pookie's leash without her running to see if that was what we were going for.

My name is Julie and I'm a returning SparkPeople member. I used the service to lose about 80 pounds in 2007 (it worked wonders!). However, life has changed since then - I'm about to graduate college, I started teaching, I got married... it has all contributed to my lifestyle changing for the worse and now I'm back up to weighing 140lbs with no muscle. So, here I am, ready to get back on track. My first exercise plan is to go out and walk my wonderful pup for lunch!! )
