Hi all,

Just a little line to note that I'm just so really happy to have found Club Canine. Looking forward to getting to know you a little better over time and hope to be actively involved as much as I can. Getting healthy involves a real time commitment, and much of my effort will be concentrated on what goes on in the kitchen, at the dinner table, plus gaining a real sense of balance between rest and strenuous outdoor activity. Glad that we have found each other on this journey!

Cheers, Rocky.

Hi, I'm Deb. I live in Austin TX with two dogs. I've been on SP for just at a year, but most of the teams I was on have kind of gone defunct. Trying to find some new teams and new goals to get some renewed motivation!

Starting over is better than giving up!

Hi - I am Liz. I live in Wisconsin and am surrounded by animals, both wild and domesticated. We have two llamas, 4 fainting goats, 25 chickens and 3 dogs. We live in the woods so we always see deer and turkey. I have been on Spark People for a few years now and I am the team lead of Spin Me A Yarn. I am currently working on making a quilt from the dog hair that I have. I card and spin the hair. I hope to get to know you better.

Hello Everyone,

My name is Jamie and I am a mom to an awesome 16 yr old human and two canine children. My canine children are a 3 1/2 year old Pug/Lab mix named Niko and a 1 1/2 year old Pit mix named Boots. I have restarted my Spark People membership to fulfill my goal of losing weight and living a healthy lifestyle. I am excited that there is a group of canine lovers that I can join as I think my canine's are my babies too. I look forward to meeting new people and completing the goals that I set out to achieve.

I'm new to the team and just learning my way around Spark People. I am 59-yo woman with 2 wonderful rescues. Murray is a 4-yo shepherd/rottie mix we adopted at 8-months old. He's a bundle of energy and little bulldozer. Faith is an 8-9 yo Brittany/Catahoula mix we adopted 3 years ago. Faith has hip displacia and arthritis so can't do a lot of activity (much like myself). Murray loves to run alongside my bike, go on hikes, play frisbee or fetch.

I obedience trained both of them and Murray is going into advanced obedience next month. He also does some agility at home for fun only. Faith did some low-impact agility but her poor hips just couldn't take much so I stopped. The little bit we did built up her confidence wonderfully.

I am interested in learning about treiball or some other low-impact activity Faith can learn, without pain. Any suggestions?

I am looking forward to getting more involved with the group, but I'm very quiet and not outgoing so please bear with me emoticon .

Hi,

I am just starting to get fit. I am almost 55 and about 50 lbs overweight. Exercise has not been on my schedule for to many years. I started a garden this year (with help). I've also just adopted a new puppy, a lab mix. I have been busy these past couple of weeks and have lost a couple of pounds due to my new responsibilities! My son told me about this site and how much it helps him. I am in desperate need of a new lifestyle to lose weight and be healthy. I am hoping this site will keep me motivated to reach my goals.

Denise, you have come to the right place. It has helped me because of their easy, healthy recipes. I have reached my goal, but stay motivated interacting with others.
I see you have a new puppy, another team I might suggest is Club Canine.

Hi, I'm Crystal. I'm an old lady (54) and I am trying to lose some weight to make walking easier. I have a birth defect that makes walking hard, but 85 extra pounds does not help either. I have 2 dogs, both rescued. Dixie is an 11 year old deaf border collie and Cleo (Cleopatra, Queen of Chaos) is a 9 year old beagle. I'm Married to John, who is anxiously awaiting his invitation to Southeastern Guide Dogs to get his first guide dog.I am an art teacher and professional artist. I am currently working on a Master of Fine Arts degree in drawing and painting.

Hi everyone, I am Regina from Texas and my dogs are Graycie (a blue merle aussie) and Allie (a white dog with brownish freckles - maybe part red heeler ?? ).

The three of us are a great pack because we have lots in common: we love to walk, we sometimes bark just for the hell of it, we're pretty lazy, love treats, and hate the sound of the doorbell. Glad to have found this team and am looking forward to getting to know everyone.


It's better to walk alone than to walk with the wrong people.

Hi Lorie, so glad you took my invitation to this team. It's a great team for dog lovers.

Hi, I'm Michelle. My daughter bought a basset hound for her husband and he didn't care for the dog as much as he had originally expected to, so, knowing how much my husband and I cared about him, he let us have him. He has a cute quirk where he knows that if I'm a bit upset with him for some reason, all he has to do is show his "teethies" and it makes me laugh! He is a gorgeous boy.
Then a year or so later a puppy wandered into our yard, and decided to stay. She was quite welcomed by our basset hound. The puppy was pretty sick. We took her to the vet. It was a mystery to him what was wrong with her, and the whole team at the vet's office fell in love with our puppy as they dealt with her. She, they thought, was a german shepherd, however, she's pretty small for one, and her ears don't stand up (unless she really wants them to -which is rare, and usually one one at a time). Plus her tail is full and curled. She has some longer fur in places, and longer anyway than a shepherd would have. We have a feeling she's part border collie. She got well and is a precious addition to our family. She likes to bring us a big teddy bear (or something else, if it isn't nearby) when she's happy that we have arrived back home, or come down stairs or whatever, lol. She's a very pretty girl.:)


Just do it!
