Finally the weather is cooler... cool enough to take Buddy for a walk up the street and back. It feels like it's been a long HOT summer. I can hardly wait for fall to arrive so we can get back into our walking routine.

Keep Sparking!

Good morning Sparkers!

It's going to be another beautiful, hot day in No. Calif.

I'm waiting to hear from you, and hoping you will check in soon. I think we can make this a great team where we can get a lot of encouragement and support on our weight loss journey.

Don't forget to hug your Westie today!

Sparking Hugs to you!
Becky

ROBIN! I am so glad that you responded today. Actually today was my first email to the group. I have been getting so disappointed that this little group of Westie lovers hasn't been active and when I saw that the leader had been AWOL I decided to just jump in!

You are right. This is a SPARK PEOPLE TEAM and we don't have to talk about our dogs ever time. In fact, it would be good if we talked about our struggles and our successes to encourage and help one another. This is a journey... the dogs could help, by taking them for walks or playing ball outside, but bottom line is... we are the one's who are responsible to get to the finish line!

As for Buddy eating my sandwich... he is still as picky as ever, and if it's not steak or pork ... he don't want it! LOL

Thank you for jumping in, dear Spark Friend! It is always good to hear from you!

Becky

Hi becky!!!
I never get any of the posts sent to my e-mail, ever. I got the mail from you today.
I am disappointed also. Even though at this time we have no Westies I think if one is a true Westieholic or animal nut they would have things to say. Hearing everyones stories bring back so many funny, happy, sad, fun memories. And a lot of love.
Yes it seems most don't understand this is also a Spark Team! I don't know about other's here but I am FAT and love dogs. I mean people don't even talk about their dogs.
Okay all how does your westie(s) or other pets help you in your weight loss journey.
How does/did your dog hinder your weight loss plan? (hmm where did that sandwich go) I swear I haven't eating yet and I'm not lying (:
I know I love a small team as opposed to one that has upward of several thousand. We can get more personal about our struggles, good stuff, spouses, kids, etc.........
Not every post has to be about the dog. Though I LOVE the Westie BUTT hehehehe. Very cool
Becky I think it's awesome you are the leader. let's kick some butt!!! Not the dogs though.
Robin

Hi Susy!

Buddy likes to walk along with me while holding on to the cuff of my crop pants, or he will stand behind me with his head poking out from between my legs. In the house he will lay somewhere that he can see both DH or I.

Funny little dog. I wonder what his quirks will be when he gets older.

Love those Westies!

Hi everyone! I'm Susy; joined the team yesterday.

My Westie, Max, is about 12 years old. He is so very sweet!

One thing he does that endears him to us is:
My husband and I notice that Max always tries to place himself halfway in between us. Example: DH will be sitting at his computer; I'll be sitting at mine just a few feet away. Max will lay/sit either at DH's feet, my feet, or... he will lay exactly halfway in the middle of the both of us.

When either of us get up and move, Max will re-locate where he sits/lays after he figures out where we're going to be. Example: I'll step over to the kitchen, so Max adjusts his location to again be halfway between where DH and I are from each other.

It's just the neatest thing. I've never had a dog do anything like this. Like I said, he's about 12 years old and has done it forever. I don't even recall when we first noticed it.

What are some things that your Westie does?

Susy

Thanks for the WTG! Sorry your scale is stuck! Don't you just hate that?

We're off to Costco this morning. If the weather stays nice Buddy and I will take our walk this afternoon after I get everything put away.

It is beautiful out with all the big white clouds and blue sky.

Oh, GD's are much better. Their Dad is off today, so we don't have them. Thanks for asking.

Hi Julie,

They are much better. I just came back from taking #2 to the doctor's office. She doesn't have strep, thank God! But she does have a red and sick looking throat. I probably won't have them tomorrow. Their Dad will be off work, and they should be able to return to school by Friday.

They have been really good. They arrived here really early this morning about 6 a.m. and both wanted a nap. Can you believe it? THEY wanted a nap. I think what makes napping more enticing is the fact that Buddy wants to get on the bed and sleep with them! It is so cute. I will have to take a pic!

Not so cold here today, but still rainy looking. Hope we get a little more rain.

Thanks for checking.

OH! I lost 2 more pounds this morning! Feels good!

Rebecky how are the granddaughters doing? Hope they are getting better. I also watch my granddaughters if they are sick. This summer the oldest granddaughter is going to stay with me during the day time so my summer will be very busy.

Hi! This is the fist chance I've had to check in. I have two of my DGD [ages 4 & 6] here today with strep throat. I took the older to the doctor today to confirm the suspicions about the strep. If the 4 yr old isn't better tomorrow I will probably be taking her too.

Looks like DH and I will be watching the girls for the next couple days until they get better. I really don't mind, but it does put a crimp in my time to Spark!
