like me, a work in progress...

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

Member Since: 9/26/2010

Fitness Minutes: 12,341

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 60-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!

Other Information:
You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don't try. --Beverly Sills

One day at a time. Make a change. If you fail, make the same change again
tomorrow. --Sister Mary Martha

I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.
For me they are the role model for being alive." - Gilda Radner

"It's never too late--in fiction or in life--to revise." -- Nancy Thayer, author

If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went. -Will Rogers

“The chief beauty about time
is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied
a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour
if you choose."
— Arnold Bennett

    Hi there, oh floppy eared dog fan! I hear that you are logging many fitness minutes! Good for you!
    I got a big chunk of taxes done, but still more to go. As soon as I finish the tax work, I will think up some mad, fun thing for the Dog Motivators!
