Hi everyone. We have four westies of our own, a 4yr old male, Bailey, Shayla, 3 years old, Tuffy, a 2 year old female and Kaylee, 3 years old. We also foster one for our rescue group. We love the breed for their independence and the bonding that they enjoy with their humans. We were just in a parade of lights last weekend with our resuce group, about 25 people and 50 dogs. It was alot of fun. I'm so glad that I found this group.

My weight has been coming off slowly but at least it's coming off. I have a few setbacks now and then, but just start again. I am very excited to see other terrier lovers here. They're so much a part of my life I know this will help me and give me even more encouragement!

Hi Felicia! I too have had many breeds of dogs and love Westies. We have some mini-challenges going on during the month of December. There was just too much going on during the holiday season to get everyone to make a long commitment to anything. January we will be starting some good solid challenges along with our resolutions.

Hi Everyone :-)

I too have basically adopted the responsibility to care for Wally, My daughters westie. I had a Chuauaha (spelling?) who was extremely faithful to me. Due to a very sad misfortune I lost him a few months back. Since he's gone Wally has slipped right into becoming my best friend. I also have a few other dogs around this place. But i've decided that I will probably always have a Westie. I just love love love him.

Anyways, I'm not new to sparkpeople but new to the team. I have such a long ways to go and even have slipped backwards so to speak. I have 40 lbs to lose. I need some sort of motivation and help....

What all does this team have going on. What are we gonna do now? Motivate me... Lets do it!

Hi, My name is Mandy and I have 3 westies. 8yr old, 5yr old and a 5 month old puppy. Life is never dull around the house. I have tried many different things to lose weight WW Jenny and was a week before going to surgery for the lap band but the surgery was cancelled for medical reasons. So now I am on a journey to change my lifestyle, not just go on a diet.

Hi Lisa! So glad you found us. We are all here for the same purpose... to get healthier and lose some weight along the way.

Westies are a great motivator, because they love to be with us. Walking them everyday would really help both us and them! LOL

Your 'little guy' sounds sweet. Funny how we end up being the care givers when we get the dogs for our children. It's just what mothers do. Taking care of as Westie isn't much of a chore though... they are so sweet.

Be sure to stop in on the "Birthday" thread and let us know your birth date and Shorty's birth date too.

Tomorrow we are starting the "Island Hopping Challenge" Just check in and post your miles either daily or weekly. I will be getting us started on that thread later tonight.

Each mile will help lose those extra pounds that we all want to shed!

Aloha!
B

My name is Lisa and I have a 1yr 4month West Terrier. Actually he is my 10yrs old daughters but I think I became the main care giver but thats fine with me. I never had a pet growing up so I just love taking care of him. He is so sweet and I love to have him around although sometimes he can get underfoot...lol. He loves to follow me EVERYWHERE in the house as long as its not near his kennel. Since kids are in school all day and hubby is at work Shorty loves to be out with me all day long and barks(or just growls) whenever he hears someone outside our door(we live in a 4plex) and thats really the only time he does bark otherwise he is very quiet and good mostly lays at my feet when I am sitting at the computer. I would love to get the scale moving again.

Hi Team Member,

So glad you joined us. Please tell the other team members something about yourself and why you love your Westie so much.

Remember that just because this team is for Westie Lovers, we all joined Spark People with the same goal in mind, and that was to become healthier.

Please join us in the challenges, and help this team grow with good constructive suggestions and/or comments.

Hugs,
Becky
Your Team Leader
