Hi we have two furry family members, both rescues, early seniors. Monet is a shar pei lab mix, was incredibly red in color when we got her, now with age, it is fading with white mixed in and predominant on her paws, face, neck and underside. Monet was the extremely active one and is now pretty laid back, vet said this would happen at age 7, didn't happen at 7, she is now 9. Monet is having a little anxiety when we work on things in the house, she has found a dog house behind our couch. This is a recent behavior, her tail is wagging while she is back there and sometimes she doesn't go back there, we are ok with it, she doesn't seem to be in full distress. Our second member is a pug, Woolfie, cute little thing, we got her few years later than Mo and she is a typical pug. Would eat all day and all night if you would let her and absolutely loves to snuggle, 100% lap dog. The two used to play all the time, at least once a day. Now, it might be a couple of times a month, they will get a complete run from upstairs to downstairs and then one of them would be done. They both seem content with the lack of action, each will play a little bit solo each day. I think it is the age of Monet, she just likes to lounge more. Monet is ever so the Mama, makes sure we don't forget to feed them, trust me she barks and jumps up and down until we do and if we pretend we don't know what she wants us to do, she ups it to jumping on us (all in good fun) or she rams her chest into our legs. Monet has incontinence, we have her on medication and she is responding excellent to it, that might be making her sleepy, hard to tell 100%. When I come home from work and I go to open up our front blinds, she will look at me, and then the front door and repeat a few times so I open the front door so Woolfie can lay in the doorway to get some sunning in. Monet also has a chair that is her favorite and when we have stuff on it, she does the same thing, looks at the chair, at us, repeat until we move the stuff. Woolfie, well she is a character, she always makes us laugh in one way or another. Our entire family loves them both as much as each other. I can't imagine a house without a dog, we went a year and I missed having one around, that's when we got Monet (Mo). My husband doesn't want any more dogs after our current dogs, not sure what will happen for sure, I am thinking rescue a pug duo. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi everyone! I am the happy mommy to four furbabies. Molly is a terrier cross and is 13 1/2 yrs old. Lacey is an american cocker spaniel and is 11 1/2 yrs old. Polar is a miniature american eskimo and is 10 3/4 yrs old. Bree is a shih tzu and is 10 yrs old. All seniors now but still enjoy their brisk one hour walks daily. Lacey is the alpha of the pack and everyone knows that for sure. Molly our largest dog is the lowest of the pack always annoying the three little ones. Bree is second in command and always vying for top spot.Molly is obsessed with the frisbee and ball, Lacey with her food, Polar with being neurotic and Bree guarding the house. These four puppies as I call them are my life. I love them so very much and they bring so much joy to me.

Looking forward to getting to know other dog lovers!

My name is Cathie

Hi all. We are kind of like a House Of Boxer here! We had 3 boxers now we have 2. Our rescue baby that we had for a little over a year passed last month. We are guessing he was about 9 yrs old. He was a true blessing to our house.

The other two are 7 and 5. Our oldest the rescue one was a fawn, the 7 yr old is brindle and our 5 yr old is white.

Some day we would like to rescue another senior boxer. I cannot begin to tell you how rewarding it was to rescue. Ernie came to us with no expression on his sweet little face. With in 3 weeks he was pretty well settled in and had a sparkle in his eyes the way a dog should have! He was very happy here and loved to go out in the woods with us even though he had to go slow.

I could go on but will stop here. Thanks for letting me join the group.

Hello
I have 2 furry friends, an eleven year old Jack Russell (who is about 6lbs overweight) and a Labradoodle puppy (who I picked up from a breeder on Saturday). They're both girls, the Jack Russell is named Patch and the puppy is named Sabrina.

Just getting back to SparkPeople after 2 years (have been on here for almost 30 days now). Excited to find Dog Lover's page. I have three, a 12 yo Lab/mix (was a stray), 4 yo Cocker/Springer mix & 18 mo Lab/Pit/Chow (per his DNA). My youngest one was rescued by a family member from a foreclosed home. Don't know how anyone could have left a 4lb puppy. So sad, but he won't ever have to worry about be alone again.

I love to volunteer my time (almost every weekend) by transporting dogs from shelters to rescue/adopters. It is the greatest feeling to help another living creature. I've been doing this for almost 2 yrs, have probably help 200+ dogs and put at least 15K miles on my truck. Yep, just a little addicted to it. If you ever want to help let me know, volunteers are always needed.

Oh, and getting addicted to going to the gym too. lol


Volunteer animal transporter. Please Adopt! Don't Shop! Too many animals are killed in shelters every day.

Wanted to meet others who love their doggies!
All of ours have come from 'rescue' operations and shelters...
Chance-we call him 'last chance' since he'd been set to be euthanized from a town that doesn't allow bully breeds-he's an American bulldog...luckily, our local shelter rescued him and we've had him four years!
Ginger-we got her from a family who couldn't cope with her as the mom was disabled and she was an active brindle American pit bull puppy of 3 months....she's been with us six years now & we call her the 'smart one'!
Vinney-he was dumped alongside the road in along with his litter...a local shelter picked them up and he was a 'Christmas' bundle two years ago...now he's a clown!

This is my first day 'back' on Spark, and like many here, didn't realize there were animal/dog lover teams before...looking forward to meeting new people while working on getting more fit...Dee from MO

Hi, I'm new to this team. I have three dogs, Cory, Nala, and Lilly, whom I adore. Cory and I walk 5 miles a day, he limps so no running. I'm currently leash training Nala, so evening walks that are currently 10 minutes. And Lilly is a neurotic little thing, who is in heat right now.

Hi everyone! I am new to this team, but have been on SparkPeople since June. M husband and I have two dogs. We have a 3 year old beagle mix, Jack, that we got from a rescue shelter and a 2 year old Terrier mix, Buddy, that we got from our local humane society. They both bring so much joy to our lives!

Don't waste your time with "could've," "would've" or "should've." Focus on "can," "will," and "do."

Time will pass no matter what .... will I be closer to or farther from my goals

It’s not that some people have willpower and some don’t. It’s that some people are ready to change and others are not. Finally, I am ready to change!

Hi, Have been with Spark for a while but never realized that they had a pet lovers section. I have a West Highland White Terrier, that is 91/2. Good dog, very obedient and yet spoiled, and extremely smart. Have always loved animals, and although hubs wasn't keen on getting a dog, once we got her home from the breeder as a 10wk old puppy, he became her biggest fan. Especially a few years ago when he went though major surgery and was recovering for several months, off of his feet. He says that our girl kept him sane, and from falling into a major depression. And while she loves us both I think sometimes that "DaDa" is her favorite.

Hello everyone! I am a doggie lover, and an animal lover in general. I have three dogs, five cats, and a few fish too! My babies are rescues from abuse or neglect. I have a soft spot for the bully breeds, pit bulls in particular. I am passionate about educating and showing these loyal dogs in a positive light.

As for why I joined SP - I have CIDP, fibromyalgia, and a bunch of other stuff to numerous to mention. Inactivity, medications, Frito Lay, and Ben & Jerry had a hand in me gaining a lot of weight. My goal is to lose 70lbs by 9/20/2015.

Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.

I am 28 years old and I have struggled with my weight all my life. I have done Spark People, Weight Watchers, Flat Belly Diet and on and on. I don't stick to anything. Seeing the big 4-0-0 on the scale has finally (I hope) scared me enough to get motivated. Will this time be different? I can't look into the future and say YES THIS IS IT! All I can do is make myself a new promise, to try one day at a time to make small baby steps. No beating myself up for not doing the right thing every second..

I train dogs and I face a lot of discrimination because of my size. I just smile and try not to let it bother me. My weight has nothing to do with my skills. It does hamper my agility showing but that doesn't mean we still don't go out and race around the course as fast as I can. haha If anything it means I have to train harder and better because my dog gets out ahead of me and I have to still give him the ques on which equipment to hit. Though I am currently taking a break from showing of any kind due to financial issues.

Anyways that is me. :) I love new friends so feel free to add me and stop by to say hello.

OH and I have three dogs.
Sway - GSDx
Zeke - Irish Wolfhound x Doodle something or other
Chelsea - Malamute/Akta

I also volunteer at the local animal control shelter.

Wow, you are really close to your goal weight! Welcome to the group. I have a sweet yellow lab mix--she's 13 and now sleeps most of the time--and an American White Shepherd who is about 4 and is maybe even sweeter. Life would be so much less without pets.

Hi. This is my second day of doing Sparkpeople and I am more determined than I think I've ever been. I have two dogs, one a White German Shepherd named Chloe I found out on the highway, about starving, and a lab-husky mix named Annie. Annie is 13, and I always tell her we're just a couple of ladies getting older together. Hoping a little more exercise will slim her down as her hips are getting weaker--and mine are getting bigger!

Hi Everyone, I am excited to join your team! I have 2 German Shepherd fur babies. My female is approximately 5 years old and my male is about 11 years old. They are both rescues and are the loves of my life. Can't wait to get to know you and your fur babies. emoticon emoticon

Welcome, glad to have you join us! I have a beagle/terrier dog that is going on 7 years old that I got as a pup, and a few months ago we just got a 9 month old black lab/boxer. My older dog wasn't happy about the new comer at first, but they are getting a long pretty well now.

Hi I'm Dale. My wife and I have a large dog Named Honey. We volunteer at the Weston County Humane Society. On week days you will find us there about 545 AM to feed and walk dogs. You ever notice how dog never seem to have a bad day? The shelter dogs are excited just by a 12 minute walk.

emoticon ! I've sort been around for awhile, but am back to SP after about 2 years being off. Looking to re-learn what I didn't get before--and shed a few pounds along the way. I have a white German Shepherd--Sweets--who will turn 4 on 14 Dec. Her pic is on my homepage. Glad to be here and hope everyone is well!

Hi I'm new to the group I am 48 years old and, my husband and I have for dogs our children. We have a 7 year old mini schnauzer, a four year old mini pinscher pug mix, a1 year old Shih Tzu poodle mix, and a 7 month old Shih Tzu Yorkie mix. We are involved in ballroom dancing and working out at the gym and swimming. But most of all we are both Christians first.we love spending the day with our dogs who are our children we love to play with them walk them and just spend quiet time with them when we are not spending time on the dance floor affecting our dances.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Showing my love

Hello. My name is Neil and I have been a volunteer in the rescue, rehabilitation and training of dogs (mostly Border Collies) for over 40 years. My dear wife RJ and I have recently retired so I arranged to adopt 2 Border Collies who were rescued from a farm with around 100 other Borders. Unfortunately, most had to be sent to Rainbow Ridge due to neglect and abuse. Our Boyz are now 13 months old and are in fact Brothers. They are the love of our lives and we have now had them for close to 3 months. They've come a long way although they will carry the baggage for years to come. I joined this group simply for the love of dogs.

Neil

I have a 6 yr old beagle/terrier mix and my boyfriend just got a 8 mo old black lab/boxer mix for his 8 yr old son that is with us half the time and with his mom the other half of the time.

As for Fleas, we put fleas drop medicine on the necks of our dogs and that seems to be doing the job. Years ago my family that didn't even have animals at that time got invaded really bad with sand fleas and we got some 20 mule borax and spread that on the carpet and left it over night and vacuumed it up the next day and it did the job. Then several yrs ago I got fleas really bad in a condo I was renting as neighbors cats kept coming in the yard. I used the 20 mule again, and it was like magic! You can buy it probably at most grocery stores, look for it in the laundry detergent area. Generic borax laundry powders work just fine too, and you should be able to find a big box really cheap of either the brand or generic.

Hi. I am Carrie and my 8 year old pug is Joey. He is my service dog. We go everywhere together. I recently adopted a stray chihuahua and named her Dora. She is still a puppy. so she has added a lot of energy to our quiet life. My husband also has a Pit Bull and she lets Dora boss her around. We live in Tucson, AZ. This is my first day on SparkPeople and I hope to make many friends along with my weight loss.

Hi,

I joined sparkpeople last week and am finding my way around.
We have a 10 year old Cavalier Kind Charles who is the love of my family's life. He is such a sweetie and just loves everyone. His tail never stops!

Looking forward to learning more about everyone else!
