I'm Lucinda from Macomb, Illinois, and I adopted Toruk (yorkie) from the local shelter. He is my loyal, loving companion and can't see my life without him.

I will do my best to meet and surpass my goal. Never stop learning or trying to achieve success. Never give up keep plugging away. If it is to be it's up to me. .

We live in the Central Valley of California (Selma to be exact), Lil Miss Mya however is originally from Stark, Kansas she flew to us when she was a little pup only 8 weeks old. We love it here we are only a few hours away from the surf & sand or the mountains & snow, which works out well with an active dog like Mya. She loves both of those elements. We get bogged down in the winter with fog and in the summer we get temps as high as 115 so it is nice to escape to the snow or the beach. She does well here thank goodness she doesnt have a long hair coat. emoticon

My dogs and I live in Mount Holly, North Carolina.
My dogs are a 2 yr old black lab female named Kayce, and my heart & soul is my 8 yr old black lab /rotti mix Jack. They are good dogs, hopeful Kayce will mellow a bit more with age. She wants to be good, but sometimes excitement takes over. I call her my pretty girl.

My Jack, well he is just the best, smartest dog I have ever seen. He has his own fan club, EVERYONE loves Jack! Sadly, he was diagnosed with cancer back in March. He had 4 tumors removed March 13. Exactly a month later, I discovered his groin lymph nodes swollen and tumors in his groin area. Today, again more tumors, this time above his incision from the surgery on his leg.

Difficult journey. Lots of unknowns.

But we are here....

Hello All,

I live the San Bernardino Mountains of Southern California. I live at about 4500 feet, so yes, I get snowed in...in So. California! I am about 60 miles from Los Angeles. I have been on Sparkpeople for a long time, but sometimes life happens and I sometimes I am not motivated. I have weighed the same thing within 5 pounds for about 25 years. It is very hard for me to lose more than 5 pounds. It is frustrating for me! My whole family is 100-200 pounds heavier than me. I have been eating between 1200-1500 calories since I was 14, when I realized the family had a weight problem. I would love to lose 30 pounds, since I turn 50 this year. I'm not quite sure what to do differently than what I have done. I speedwalk, ride my bike and swim. I am healthy as a horse, but I have been stuck for years at the same weight!

I have a small "petting" zoo...well, sort of! I have 4 Pomeranians, a Keeshond and a Samoyed. I have shown dogs on and off since 1974. I do conformation, agility, obedience and therapy work with my dogs. We also have 3 rescue cats, a cockatiel, fish, geckos and a few tarantulas. I grew up on an acre ranch and we had lots of horses, goats, sheep, chickens, etc. So in the mountains, I downsized my critters! LOL

My husband is a top dog photographer: www.moonlightmagicphoto.com

I think that is enough info to start a small novel. Sorry!

Hello there.. New to all of this... We are in Northern New York. My best friend is my service dog Dozer, a 130 lb Rottie... He is the light at the end of my tunnel. He and I both have started to become more fit. Hoping that all of the community support and networking will help.

Hi
I am Dayle. Hubby and I are from Northern MI. We have lived in Mesa, AZ for ~ 20 yrs. the profile pic is of Jackie and Bethie. Jackie passed last Oct and Bethie just a couple weeks ago. We got the boys four years ago to overlap the girls and learn some of their traits. They are brothers from different mothers. Bradley is a Yorkshire. Matthew is a yorkiepoo, like Jackie only a lot smaller. Bradley has something wrong with his left legs and we just made an appointment with a vet that is certified in chiropractic and other things. Hope she can help him. Will be nice to find out. He hobbles on three sometimes.
Our dogs are all named after characters in our favorite movie, Indian Summer.

Hugs,
Dayle

Hi, My name is Joyce. I live in Nova Scotia. I am married with three daughters. I have 2 cats and 2 dogs. I love animals and have been taking my dogs out every day for a walk for the past week. My dogs are a Irish Setter/Lab mix, and a Coon Hound/Lab mix. We got them both from people who didn't want them anymore. Wouldn't trade them for anything.

Hi, I'm in Florida with a large orange mutt. She's loving Sparkpeople because now I am running around with her a lot more to fill in my cardio points. My dog gives Sparkpeople two paws up, except when I'm typing in my minutes on the computer while she's wanting me to go back outside (like right now, LOL, dogface suddenly blocking the screen, gotta go...)

Hi, my name is Sara from California. I used to own both a German Shepherd and a border collie, but the shepherd passed away a few months back. My border collie's name is Candy and I used to compete in rally and obedience with her. I would also go to volunteer and do pet therapy with her.

Being in college now I definitely miss her since she lives with my parents. Hopefully I can bring her down next year.

Regarding weight, I've never thought it was possible to fit in size 2 jeans, or even 6 for that matter. I definitely eat when I am not hungry, or just bored or upset. I am trying to stop that, its just hard. Anyway, I love spark people and support this community have. Glad to join the team.

Hi, I'm Holly from Utah. Just joined here because a friend of mine recommended it. I used to have Alaskan Malamutes, and sledded, showed, and raised them for many years. That life completely fell apart and I had to move back in with my parents. Now I have Finnish Spitz (www.ajuaq.com) and a Papillon.
Three years ago I was within 5 pounds of my first/high goal weight. Then I was under a lot of stress, and I swear I put on 15 pounds in a matter of days. I haven't been able to get it off since. Very frustrating!

My name is Lynne, and I am from New Jersey. My current dog is named a Ginger and is an All-American mutt. She has beagle, lab and pit bull, and probably lots of other things. She is sweet and wonderful, in spite of coming out of something that must have been horrible. She was even terrified to eat when I got her, and ended up having to hand feed her a lot until she put on some weight. The rescue group told me she was a "fussy eater", but it was a lot more than that.
Anyway, I love dogs and wish I could have lots more. I cannot imagine buying a dog when there are so many dogs dying for lack of a home.

Hi! My name is Kris from FL and I have 6 Cavaliers. We first got into Cavalier King Charles Spaniels when we were given one by a breeder because they couldn't sell her (she had a heart murmur). We fell in love with dog and with the breed and found that one was just not enough. Today we have six and couldn't be happier. emoticon

We have had Ruby for 7 months and she is settling in well although she still has a few issues from mistreatment and neglect in the past. I look forward to reading about your dogs and hearing about your weight loss emoticon

HI everyone! My name is Jenn and I'm from Pennsylvania.

I'm new! It's great to read about so many, not just dog lovers, but animal lovers on here. My furry best friend of 13 years, Lil, passed away on 2/9/12 this year. It was the most difficult thing that's ever happened to me, I'm only 26, so she was with me for literally half of my life. That was sort of the final blow to a long string of stressful events over the past two years. I am an emotional eater, and in the past two years, I've gained 25 pounds. I have tried to lose it, and have given up, which depressed me even more, several times. I feel horrible and I want to change my habits so much.
I am 100% a dog person, but oddly enough, a couple of weeks ago, a cat showed up on my porch and sat there and stared in my window for 3 days. So, I adopted him and he is now filling the cuddle space that has been empty since Lil died. I never thought I could love a cat, but he has proven me wrong!
I am actually getting a Labradoodle puppy in May though. My new puppy is not even born yet, the babies are due March 25th, so I will keep you all updated! I'm nervous to puppy train! I've never actually done it before...my parents trained Lil since I was only 13 when she was born! I hope to have some great chats along the way, but mostly I hope to get healthy!

Hello fellow fluffy fans! I'm in New Mexico and I live in a zoo...well close enough to one anyways. I have two dogs of my own. Both mutts. One is Darling, poor thing got stuck with the name since I couldn't stop calling her my little darling, and she is a coyote shar pei mix. She looks mostly coy and some wonder if she's dingo. But no her mother was a frisky wild sort that liked to walk on the wild side, literally. She is seven and hefty so she is my fellow chubby in need of losing a bit of baggage. The younger one who isn't even a year old yet is a horse. Her name is Chynna and she is a lab boxer mix. This one keeps me on my toes when I'm not lying on the floor from having the wind knocked out from one of her hellos. She once was so tiney, but I must have mixed the miracle grow into the dog food one day by mistake.
My son is seven, but at the mental level of a four or five year old with the body of a five year old. So he has his own pup to keep him company and make him feel responsible. His pup is an adorable little terror that is a pure bred poodle. Black and an attention hog who usually gets his way. We named him Buddy. And he sure is one.
I say zoo because my mom and I live together and she has her utterly adorable pooch Josie. Josie is a salt and pepper schnauzer. I groom the poor girl and boy does she tolerate much. I'm honestly surprised she hasn't shaved me in the night in revenge.
I also call it a zoo because I have a cat. Gabrielle and he thinks my lap is his constant bed. He's my orange swirly stalker. He doesn't have stripes, they are swirls, I kid you not. He is one unusual lovable amazing cat. And last but not least I own a parrot named Samson. She is a female...I thought she was male. She is yellow like the most yellow lemon with the most snuggly yet dominating personality I've ever known. She even lets others hold her so long as I'm the one who retrieves her. She won't let others into her cage.
So as you can see I'm a big animal loon. I've had many different kinds of pets and used to live on a nice ten acres with my horses. Soon I hope I'll be able to enjoy the horsey life again. I miss that most. Yet my furry babies keep me tons happy and make me keep going because if they ain't happy I'll probably get a hairball in my coffee. I'm glad to be here in this group and hope to have loads of fun with you fellow fluffy fans.
