Rescues can be the best dogs. I'm glad Sonic is doing so well. Sounds like your having fun as well. Do you ever compete in So. Calif?

The fur babies are doing great. I've retired Tess from freestyle (more an attitude thing with her) and started working Sonic in it full time. She is doing stuff I have never seen a dog do. In the 5 years I've worked with Tess, she has 1 good routine if she feels like it that day. Sonic has got 5 solid routines in just 2 years and is working at a very advanced level. Who woulda thought that the little rescue dog that was voted most likely to bite somebody is going to be a super star? LOL

Doing good for the most part. I'm enjoying the cooler weather. How are your fur babies doing?

Hey thanks. It's good to be back. I didn't realize you were on this team too. I'll have to check out some of the other teams too. How've you been doing?

Wow, another freestyler!! How cool is that? It's really becoming a lot more popular I think because of Britain's Got Talent and America's Got Talent had dog dancing winners. It used to be when I'd tell people I danced with my dogs, they'd look at me like I was strange. LOL

Do you have a trainer and what are you working on now? I am doing a new routine with Sonic to Phantom of the Opera. It's just in the beginning stages, but is going to be very exciting.

Thanks for the welcome!

Ann

Welcome Ann! Your production looks great! I also do freestyle here in the states with my aussies and corgis. I have a theatrical background and this looks like a blast! Glad to have you on the team! emoticon

Hi everyone. I have just found this team. I do both walking and running with my 2 border collies. I also dance with them. I compete in canine musical freestyle.

I have been a long time member of Sparkpeople, but have just gotten back to it after a bit of an absence. I am also a lifetime member of Weight Watchers which is where I reached my goal, but am finding as I did in the past that I get obsessed with the points system and start eating stuff I don't really like because it's low in points. Old weight watchers joke, "I found a great new snack....it tastes like poo, but it's only 1 point...." It was actually one of my leaders who sent me to Spark the first time as she recognized the problem I was having. So, I have signed up for 3 months of spark coaching and decided to work this program again instead of counting the points.

A bit about myself. I live on the west coast of British Columbia and am married to my running partner and best friend. I just turned 59 and just completed my 20th marathon the end of September. We have 2 rescue border collies, Sonic and Tess. Tess is 9 years old and Sonic is 7 1/2. They do long distance trail running with both my husband and I. We are lucky to live within a 2 minute walk to a whole system of trails, so we can run the dogs off leash and off the pavement.

I also dance with my dogs. We are in the process of putting on a huge theatrical production in November. We did one 2 years ago to a sell out crowd. It incorporates the musical freestyle, indoor kite flying and dance. It's getting crazy with the final touches now and I am will be glad when it's all over. If you want to check out our youtube channel which has a short video clip of scenes from our last show. It's kind of hard to explain otherwise. www.youtube.com/Paws2Dance?feature=m

There are also some video clips of the routines we do with our dogs.

OK, I will shut up now. I look forward to sharing and getting to know everyone.

Happy tails...

Ann
