Thanks. I just found this reply by stumbling around. I always thought I was pretty internet-savvy, but I am just lost here. I post a question and can't find the answer--well, I found this one. I absolutely don't understand points, teams etc. but I will keep trying. Thanks!

emoticon Kat and emoticon to SP, and this team !!

Don't worry, you'll get use to the site itself. As far as a goal, don't set yourself up for failure, make your own goals, and try to stick to them as much as you can. Eating healthy and getting in some exercise is the key. As time goes by, you will work into what does work for you. Don't get discouraged. You can also search for team with the same interests that you have. Who knows, they may have a team for Vets !!

Welcome to Hayley and Nitro, too. So sorry to hear of the loss of one of your fur-babies. It is so difficult to lose them. emoticon

Good luck to you. emoticon

If you haven't failed, you haven't lived !

Laugh, and the world laughs with you !!

Hi everyone. My name is Kat and I have no idea how this site works. I asked around and they said to join a team, which I did. Still don't understand the points etc and I haven't joined a goal because I am not sure I can do any of the ones listed with my crazy schedule. Anyway, love all animals (I am a vet) and currently have two Jack Russell Terriers. Hayley is 16. We lost her partner in February to brain cancer emoticon and got Nitro this summer. Can someone please tell me what to do? I am starting back on my healthy eating and exercise tomorrow and understand the trackers (Ithink!) but without support, it won't work. Thanks emoticon

My name is Sue, I have 2 dogs and two cats at this time. Max is my Cocker Spaniel and BreeSea is my Sheltie. We all live in Nova Scotia, Canada (where winter is beginning to sneak in!) Max and I have walked everyday since September 11, BreeSea came along sometimes buts she's had a few medical issues. Both dogs have trained in agility and we still play in the backyard with a full agility course.
Very glad to be here. :)

Hi - My name is Judy and I have 7 furbabies and all are rescues. I live west of Winston Salem on five acres in the country. All but one of my kids have been drop offs (people dumping them). Bear is my adoptive daughter that I adopted from a family and she is half chow/half rott. Katie was thrown from a moving car wrap in phone wire and she is part lab. Smoke, Natasha, Ditzy and Buddy were all dropped off at one time or another and have stayed. Boris came to us when we stopped to make sure he was okay laying on the side of a rode. He jumped in our truck. You could count his ribs and our vet had to surgically remove the leather belt around his neck - per vet he is an Alaskan Malmute.

I love them all and would not change one thing about my life with them.

Think you thin - thin you be

Hi there. I'm Bill and I love my dogs. I have a Heinz 57 (Dali) and an Aussie (Blue). They're both spoiled rotten, but very disciplined. The Aussie and I train for eventual agility competition. We have been at it since February of this year. I'm also a cycling fanatic and bike almost daily for 2+ hours average. My beautiful and wonderful wife is a runner/walker and competes in 10K races. Together, we're a happy family.

Hi guys! I'm a 23 year old university student from Canada. I started my weight loss journey in May following the Weight Watchers program. I have lost almost 25 lbs so far, and want to lose another 75. I'm taking my weight loss nice and slow (in no rush to lose the weight, but rather want to adapt a new approach to eating, exercise, etc). My journey so far has been full of ups and downs, and it has been very emotional, but also very rewarding. I have had to learn how to make a lot of lifestyle changes, and am still learning things about myself everyday.

I have two lovely little fur babies - Daisy and Lulu. Daisy is a havapoo... tiny, cute, feisty, full of energy, independent, sassy and incredibly smart. Lulu is a shih tzu. She is a rescue dog and is honestly just a big lump. She loves to be with me and just be near me. She follows me all around the house. She is so awkward and clumsy and hilarious.

The only journey is the journey within.

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.

Hello, my name is Sharon but you can call me Pasture Puff, hehe. I have three dogs. Didn't think I'd have more than one but when my husband became bedridden and I had to go outside after dark a lot to take care of any needs down at the barn I realized I'd feel better if I had another dog who was a better guard dog so I went looking and found two, which I couldn't decide between so I got them both. It's been a challenge because all three of my dogs are female alpha types! It sure made me have to rise to the occasion of being the pack leader. I look forward to getting to know this team and making some new Spark friends!

Good Morning, my name is Nona. (not short for anything) It does mean the #9 in Latin and I am the 9th in my Family. I grew up on a farm in Ct. I always had dogs all around me as well as the usual cats, cows horses chickens turkeys and pigs.When I got married I married a city boy who at the time didn't realize his calling. The only pets he ever had were fish. So I was a nurse forever until I hurt my back and wound up on the disabled list. We moved to Florida 7 years ago to get away from the cold. It was great for a few years but this past year the snow and the grandkiids did a number to my will power. We sold our house and are presently getting ready for the northern move. I think it will look a lot like the beverly hillbillies but we will conquer. I have 4 wonderful dogs and a turtle. We would move mountains for any of them. I will tell you about them in another discussion. I just wanted to jump in before I got busy and say hello and tell you a little bit about me. Have a great Wednesday.

wake up every morning. Put your feet on the floor and accept that this is a new day. I will succeed, because I am awesome!!!!!

BESCATS, yes, I do find the same thing. I am in a lot of groups and maybe too many myself, some because I hope to get some medical info from them, some because I just thought they would be an interesting group like I found this one to be. I kind of wonder if some of the people are just shy and are just taking their time reading our post before deciding to post some thing themselves. But I also know that several people that had their security set so that we could not see them and send them friend request had no idea that it was like that and had no idea how to change it until I told them. So for some like that I wonder if they were expecting more of the current members to welcome them and friend them, and when it wasn't happening, maybe they just gave up and moved on to another group. I know the automatically get a welcome from the team and from spark people when they join. But you would think that SP would make it clearer to them on how to change their security setting and why they would want to do it. But too they could be like me, when I first signed up I joined a whole bunch of groups that sounded interesting to me, thinking I was going to get articles from them and such. I didn't realize in the beginning that it was actual groups that I was suppose to be participating in and that it would be so hard to really participate fully in each one. I had thought about maybe leaving some of them, but then I see that they all seem to have the same thing going, lots of members in them, but really only a smaller handful constantly participating. So then I didn't feel so bad about not being able to be so active all the time in them all. And I even started joining more new ones and struggling ones thinking maybe I could lead some of their members to joining some of the more active other groups that I am in that they might be interested in too. Not sure what else to do about it. But try to get the word out to people with their security set high, and get the word out about teams that I think are really worth being in.

emoticon y'all! My name is Connie and I'm in South Carolina. I've been off and on SP since 2008. I'm back and looking for teams that are chatty. I've joined some teams in the last few days that I'm interested in but I guess the people there are off the wagon at the moment. emoticon I have 2 pups and I saw this team on another members page and thought I'd pop in and say hi! I look forward to getting to know y'all. emoticon

Thanks for the information. I still would think if they joined a team, they would take a look around the team to see what's going on. So many join teams, but you never see them, and I have to wonder why they join ??? I don't belong to many teams because I know I couldn't keep up with them, and I have left teams that never do anything. I'm sure you must find the same thing.

If you haven't failed, you haven't lived !

I have noticed a lot on all my teams with the security set so high we can not send them friend request either. I have been trying to send all of those that I can a msg to let them know how to change their settings if they would like. Most are happy to receive the instructions. Only one stated that they didn't want to change the settings and only a few didn't respond at all. So I think that will help too if I keep trying to see those type of msgs out to whom ever I see has the security high.

We seem to have gained many new members lately, but most are not taking the time to introduce themselves or their canine friends. The team likes to send out goodies to the new members, so please introduce yourselves to us !!

Hi all, I am Janette, I started in May. I am 53, I have a 6 yr old dog, and a puppy. I belong to a lot of groups and I am a co leader of one too. Plus my boyfriend has a son that lives with us half of the time that is turning 9 shortly. So I am pretty busy. I haven't been in this group as much as I should. I will try to do better at it. Feel free to send me friend requests, the more friends the better. I started in May at 170 and now I am down to 151.5. I wish you all the best always.

Welcome to the team, Leslie. emoticon

It must sometimes be difficult with 3 dogs in a townhouse, but so very wonderful that you have them. It sounds like Bolt keeps you in shape. Dogs are wonderful companions, and brighten our days.

I live in Vermont, and have 2 Mini-Schnauzers, and now just one cat. We lost our other cat last week, and miss her. We live in the country, so our dogs have plenty of place to run in their own yard, but we do take them for walks too. They also are very spoiled.

If you haven't failed, you haven't lived !

Laugh, and the world laughs with you !!

Hi my name is Leslie. I have three dogs, Oreo is a Chihuahua and she is 16 Gizmo is a Pekingese and he is 9 and Bolt is a Pit/Lab Mix and she is 1 1/2. Oreo and Giz are older and all they like to do is sleep. Bolt is my baby is got her when she was 4 weeks old, so she thinks she's a human. I talk her on long walks with me so she can get out her extra energy. We live in a Townhouse that does not have a big yard. On rainy days I stand at the top of the stairs and throw the ball down and Bolt down and gets it then runs back up. I do that until she is tired and can barely get up the stairs. I dont want her to get bored in are small space.

Hi! My name is Vicky and my dog is a beagle/lab mix named Sarah. I was a member of "Dog Walkers Unite" on the weight watchers site with my previous dog(Bailey). She died in July from cancer at 2&1/2 years old.It brings back too many sad memories to go to the other group. I'm glad I found this one :) In December we got Sarah. She is a two year old rescue dog from an animal hoarding situation.

OH! I've always wanted to be owned by a St Bernard.

Are they hard to care for? Have special care needs? Do they require tons of walking and running? What's their temperment like, for your stand point, not the "experts".

And welcome to the team... *LOL*

Hi, I'm new to the forum and brand new to Spark. Despite my username, I actually have SIX dogs, and have had as many as seven in the house at once. I dabble in rescue, rehoming those that I can find good homes for, and keeping those that are less adoptable.
I have three older dogs - one sheltie (Ferguson), one sheltie-mix (Murray), one hound mix (Dot)
A middle aged blind dachshund (Hildegard)
A "potcake" from the Caribbean island of Grand Turk (for info on potcakes see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potcake_dog)
And lastly, one little chichi-like mutt, Monkey.

I need to figure out how to add pictures of them...

Hi I'm April and my lil man is Peanut. Peanut is a 1 year old Chihuahua, my husband and I saved Peanut from the home where he was beaten 6 months ago and he is my son and is treated as such. He has his own chair at the table and has my heart completely. I have always been a dog lover, I raised 14 beagles and have one tattooed on my back, I had just lost 3 Saint Bernards(who where my life) after 13 1/2 years with them before I was blessed with Peanut.

This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly.Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy. www.mydoterra.com/aprilwilliams4/ www.mydoterra.com/aprilwilliams4/

Hi, I'm Scott & my four legged friend is a 7 year old JRT named Flapjack. We share a home with my partner/fiance Wes in a rural village in New Mexico. Flapjack is a typical Jack Russell - energetic, smart, and quite the clown. He brings great joy to our lives, and loves to play, cuddle, and go to doggie day camp to play with all his canine pals.

My name is Mako and I lost my doggy soul mate, Jozee a Boxer/Lab mix (we called her a Boxador), January 27th 2012. emoticon (She died two days before her 12th birthday.) She was a therapy dog in my classroom since the age of 8 weeks. The entire school loved her and still miss her. She was so loved that when she had to have her spleen removed in 2009, the school had a fundraiser and paid the entire vet bill. They also collected money for a personalized memorial garden bench in our school butterfly garden. She was my heart!

Jozee also was a reading therapy dog, where kids improved their fluency by reading to dogs, she visited people in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and special need day cares. She was that once in a lifetime dog and I know I'll never have another like her. emoticon

My son got a puppy as an early Christmas present in 2011. He is now my classroom therapy dog and although he is a sweet boy, the paw prints left by Jozee are huge! Kepi is a Miniature Labradoodle and so cute! He has his CGC and therapy dog certification. I entered him in the AKC Canine Partners program where he has his CGC and therapy dog title. I'm hoping to try tracking with him.

I volunteer and am a therapy dog trainer for a therapy dog organization. I've been a member since 2004. I really enjoy it! At one time all four of my kids were certified therapy dog handlers with our little terrier mix, Mia. It was fun, but now they are all getting older and busier with activities.

I should mention that all of our dogs are rescues from the local humane society. I used to work there in the summers doing humane education for a kids' camp.

Well, this is long enough and it gives you an idea of who we are.

Hello all. My name is Kellie and I am owned by a 7-year-old, 70-pound yellow lab named Riley. She was part of the package deal when I married my husband six years ago.

In my first marriage we had a dachshund , small, very little shedding. Then I was on my own, no pets, for seven years. So Riley was an adjustment for me! But now she has my heart! Can't imagine life without her.

You can check out my homepage for a picture of her. I should add some more!

I look forward to getting to know you all!

Hello! I am new to the team, but not new to sparks!

My pooch is named Scout. I am a huge To Kill A Mockingbird fan. It's my fav book. I have child with a name from the book and I didn't have a little girl, so my furry girl is named Scout!

Welcome JADASMOM! I was owned by a black lab/german shepard mix, his name was Alexander the Great. Alex for short. He passed away in 2006-7 via lymph cancer, at a very young 5 years old. So I rememebr well how dear that breed is to you.

I'm now ruled by two Toy Fox Terriers. *S*

I'm 66 yrs. old & just crazy about Labradors.
I like to play hidden object games.
I'm a diabetic.

I have a 22 month old female black Labrador named Jada. I got her when she was 8 months old through a rescue group. The family that owned her had just moved to NJ from Florida. When they got to NJ they found that they were not going to be able to keep her, so she was listed as a courtesy & that's how I found her. I actually wanted a yellow male, but that's okay. She's my first female. She's crazy but I wouldn't trade her for the world. She's my 4th Lab, so I'm pretty familiar with the breed which worked in my favor. She has a lot of energy! Because of some health issues right now (& no car) I'm unable to exercise her as much as I should, but my health is improving. I also hope to get another car & then I can take her to the dog park. I have a friend who has a female Rottweiler 2 weeks younger than Jada & they love to play together. We did that regularly until my car died on me in the fall. I should mention that I got her in January 2012. Anyway, I was able to get her in 1 class. Boy! Are obedience classes expensive these days! I do have an advantage though; I've trained before. 2 of my dogs earned their Companion Dog Titles. So I'm somewhat experienced.

When I figure out how to download pictures from my phone & new camera, I will post them.

I am Lorene, my little darling is a 1 year old Yorkie named Tinkerbell. We rescued her about 6 months ago. She has truly been a joy to have in my life. I swore after my little poodle Cricket passed away at 18, I would not get another pet. Well, you can tell how that worked out. Looking forward to meeting everyone and sharing pet stories.

Welcome to the club emoticon So glad to hear about all of your babies. I checked out their photos & they are so cute, and very active, I see.
Welcome also to the world of retirement. I retired over a year ago, and love it. Now have time to get healthy.
Look forward to seeing you on the site, and hearing about your puppies.

If you haven't failed, you haven't lived !

Laugh, and the world laughs with you !!

Welcome other newbie’s! And hello to everyone else…

I am an old-timer to Spark People, just returning from a necessary sabbatical. I missed the interaction with others as I work from home. I am retired from corporate America and don’t miss the hour long commute (one-way), and at times, in hazardous weather conditions. No more deadlines, politicking, or one-sided diplomacy. *LOL* I live on 10 acres in southwestern Michigan, so can classify myself as a Gentlewoman Farmer; nuts and fruits mostly.

My Toy Fox Terriers, Finn and Echo love running and romping and scouting the acreage without being tethered. However, they despise winter and anything close to cool – and definitely not frigid! *LOL*. Like their Mom. So no walking during the wintery season, but when spring arrives there is no stopping them from escaping through any open door.

My precious canine children kept me sane during my hideous perimenopause years; giving me strength to remain smoke free, calming when hormone depression reared high and a reason to get out of bed every day. As my last child prepares to leave the nest, they have made my transition to empty nest much easier too.

They also encourage me to workout. Echo likes to lay her neck across my mouth while I perform floor exercises. Makes it bit hard to breath sometimes. Once I finish my workout both dogs are happy to “see” me; although I pretend they are cheering my workout success.

I am also owned by two cats, Snickers (20 yo) and Leo (8 yo), and then three finches, Lumi, Fumi and Gloomy. I have been owned by a black Labrador, Alexander the Great, and a Scottish terrier, Bennigan; all who have since passed but always remembered. I still carry an internet moniker, “Scottieluvr” and have a personal web site too. In fact my computer room is decorated in Scottie Dog stuff. Finn and Echo have a web site as well.

I was never heavy until I was in my 40's and started on medication that made me gain weight. Even though I've been off that medicine for almost 10 years I haven't managed to lose the weight. But it is time to get into the best shape possible. Even if I don't get to "ideal" body weight, I want to have energy and be active.
I've always had pets in my life. Right now, my husband and I have 2 dogs, Grover and Lillie, and 3 cats, Rani, Freddy, and Willow. I lost my last dog, Nano, last month. He was 17 and had had a rough life before I got him, and because of health wasn't able to go for walks for the last year.
Now I have Lillie, who is a champion walker and should help me reach 15 minutes a day and more!

My name is Deborah, aka, Ponyfarmer. Until recently, I had 2 dogs, 2 cats, 5 horses (though some were Mini's, so two of those could count as one). I am a high school teacher and I live on a 26 acre horse ranch. Puddles and I walk everyday, usually 2-3 times. My dogs have saved my life and have helped me to lose th 70+ pounds. I still have another 60-70 to go. I can't think of anything else, if you want to know more, just ask, I am a very open person.
