Hello, everyone. My family has three retired racing Greyhounds and a Chow Chow. We live in the Midwest and enjoy living in the country, enjoying the beauty of our area. I'm a graphic designer and also a CBD oil/Hemp advocate. I'm working hard to live a healthier life and am committed to following through this time to reach my goal of 50x50...losing 50 lbs. before I turn 50 in November.

Hi Everyone! I'm Divvy, I live in Los Angeles with my hubby and pupper Bartlett. He is my emoticon Bartlett travels with us wherever we go and loves lounging by the pool and waiting for any tidbits that fall from the table.

Take care!

Hi my name is Jody(Labradoodlemom). I have a 2 1/2 year old Labradoodle named Molly, who won my heart the first time I saw her. She has the sweetest personality I have ever seen in a dog. She is my and my DH's adopted daughter. She's also my fitness buddy.

Lives in Salt Lake City, Ut.


Have a peaceful day.

Just wanted to say Hi as well. my little walking companion's name is Papi. He is a Jug. He requires a ton of exercise and a ton of affection, but he gives as he receives. I'd be lost without him. We walked for 50 minutes today with his human sister Rae. It was a beautiful day for a walk.

Glad to find this team! Have been on Spark a long time. Have a rescue dog that the shelter thought was Beagle mix. Thought she looked too big for that and did DNA test - turns out she's mostly Dalmation (the black dots on her tummy and legs should have been a clue. LOL)

Hi My name is Barbara. I am back to Spark after a brief absence, with a renewed determination to get some of the extra pounds off. I am married, no kids except for Ranger (Chi/Rat Terrier) and Ole (American Eskimo mix). I am semi-retired and work an on-line business out of my home. Prior to retirement I worked from home for 8 years as a regular full-time employee of a large company. All that sitting and handy access to the kitchen helped me to put on some of the extra weight. I hope to get to my goal weight by my 65th birthday this September. I volunteer at a dog rescue here in the Pacific NW. I spend time socializing the dogs, cleaning kennels, making crate beds, and I occasionally foster sick and/or special needs dogs. It is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done in spite of all the dog poop!

Hi, I have two pugs, Benjy a senior citizen with back issues and Daisy a 5 year old rescue. Last year I had to put my first pug Munckin due a brain tumour. Benjy embraces his "inner puppy" very sweet, loves tummy rubs. Daisy is the most affectionate dog I have ever known I think she is trying to make for lost time when she was a stray

Hi we have two furry family members, both rescues, early seniors. Monet is a shar pei lab mix, was incredibly red in color when we got her, now with age, it is fading with white mixed in and predominant on her paws, face, neck and underside. Monet was the extremely active one and is now pretty laid back, vet said this would happen at age 7, didn't happen at 7, she is now 9. Monet is having a little anxiety when we work on things in the house, she has found a dog house behind our couch. This is a recent behavior, her tail is wagging while she is back there and sometimes she doesn't go back there, we are ok with it, she doesn't seem to be in full distress. Our second member is a pug, Woolfie, cute little thing, we got her few years later than Mo and she is a typical pug. Would eat all day and all night if you would let her and absolutely loves to snuggle, 100% lap dog. The two used to play all the time, at least once a day. Now, it might be a couple of times a month, they will get a complete run from upstairs to downstairs and then one of them would be done. They both seem content with the lack of action, each will play a little bit solo each day. I think it is the age of Monet, she just likes to lounge more. Monet is ever so the Mama, makes sure we don't forget to feed them, trust me she barks and jumps up and down until we do and if we pretend we don't know what she wants us to do, she ups it to jumping on us (all in good fun) or she rams her chest into our legs. Monet has incontinence, we have her on medication and she is responding excellent to it, that might be making her sleepy, hard to tell 100%. When I come home from work and I go to open up our front blinds, she will look at me, and then the front door and repeat a few times so I open the front door so Woolfie can lay in the doorway to get some sunning in. Monet also has a chair that is her favorite and when we have stuff on it, she does the same thing, looks at the chair, at us, repeat until we move the stuff. Woolfie, well she is a character, she always makes us laugh in one way or another. Our entire family loves them both as much as each other. I can't imagine a house without a dog, we went a year and I missed having one around, that's when we got Monet (Mo). My husband doesn't want any more dogs after our current dogs, not sure what will happen for sure, I am thinking rescue a pug duo. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi everyone! I am the happy mommy to four furbabies. Molly is a terrier cross and is 13 1/2 yrs old. Lacey is an american cocker spaniel and is 11 1/2 yrs old. Polar is a miniature american eskimo and is 10 3/4 yrs old. Bree is a shih tzu and is 10 yrs old. All seniors now but still enjoy their brisk one hour walks daily. Lacey is the alpha of the pack and everyone knows that for sure. Molly our largest dog is the lowest of the pack always annoying the three little ones. Bree is second in command and always vying for top spot.Molly is obsessed with the frisbee and ball, Lacey with her food, Polar with being neurotic and Bree guarding the house. These four puppies as I call them are my life. I love them so very much and they bring so much joy to me.

Looking forward to getting to know other dog lovers!

My name is Cathie

Hi all. We are kind of like a House Of Boxer here! We had 3 boxers now we have 2. Our rescue baby that we had for a little over a year passed last month. We are guessing he was about 9 yrs old. He was a true blessing to our house.

The other two are 7 and 5. Our oldest the rescue one was a fawn, the 7 yr old is brindle and our 5 yr old is white.

Some day we would like to rescue another senior boxer. I cannot begin to tell you how rewarding it was to rescue. Ernie came to us with no expression on his sweet little face. With in 3 weeks he was pretty well settled in and had a sparkle in his eyes the way a dog should have! He was very happy here and loved to go out in the woods with us even though he had to go slow.

I could go on but will stop here. Thanks for letting me join the group.

Hello
I have 2 furry friends, an eleven year old Jack Russell (who is about 6lbs overweight) and a Labradoodle puppy (who I picked up from a breeder on Saturday). They're both girls, the Jack Russell is named Patch and the puppy is named Sabrina.

Just getting back to SparkPeople after 2 years (have been on here for almost 30 days now). Excited to find Dog Lover's page. I have three, a 12 yo Lab/mix (was a stray), 4 yo Cocker/Springer mix & 18 mo Lab/Pit/Chow (per his DNA). My youngest one was rescued by a family member from a foreclosed home. Don't know how anyone could have left a 4lb puppy. So sad, but he won't ever have to worry about be alone again.

I love to volunteer my time (almost every weekend) by transporting dogs from shelters to rescue/adopters. It is the greatest feeling to help another living creature. I've been doing this for almost 2 yrs, have probably help 200+ dogs and put at least 15K miles on my truck. Yep, just a little addicted to it. If you ever want to help let me know, volunteers are always needed.

Oh, and getting addicted to going to the gym too. lol


Volunteer animal transporter. Please Adopt! Don't Shop! Too many animals are killed in shelters every day.

Wanted to meet others who love their doggies!
All of ours have come from 'rescue' operations and shelters...
Chance-we call him 'last chance' since he'd been set to be euthanized from a town that doesn't allow bully breeds-he's an American bulldog...luckily, our local shelter rescued him and we've had him four years!
Ginger-we got her from a family who couldn't cope with her as the mom was disabled and she was an active brindle American pit bull puppy of 3 months....she's been with us six years now & we call her the 'smart one'!
Vinney-he was dumped alongside the road in along with his litter...a local shelter picked them up and he was a 'Christmas' bundle two years ago...now he's a clown!

This is my first day 'back' on Spark, and like many here, didn't realize there were animal/dog lover teams before...looking forward to meeting new people while working on getting more fit...Dee from MO

Hi
I've been on spark on and off for years. This time I'm going to make to my goal. My goal is to lose 50# by the end of next year.
I have two dogs Bear and Akita. Both love to go for walks but the vet says that they can't be out in the cold for long.

Hi, I'm new to this team. I have three dogs, Cory, Nala, and Lilly, whom I adore. Cory and I walk 5 miles a day, he limps so no running. I'm currently leash training Nala, so evening walks that are currently 10 minutes. And Lilly is a neurotic little thing, who is in heat right now.

Nobody can have it all, you can only have what you love most.

Hello,

New to Sparkpeople and just looking for good teams and people to join me on my fitness journey!

My main goal is to be healthier and active by making better choices daily! A side goal is to reach a healthy weight.

My husband and I have three spoiled fur babies (who love walks). Their names are Dutchess, Harper, and Bruiser.

Add me as a friend on Sparkpeople and Fitbit!

Hi everyone! I am new to this team, but have been on SparkPeople since June. M husband and I have two dogs. We have a 3 year old beagle mix, Jack, that we got from a rescue shelter and a 2 year old Terrier mix, Buddy, that we got from our local humane society. They both bring so much joy to our lives!

Don't waste your time with "could've," "would've" or "should've." Focus on "can," "will," and "do."

Time will pass no matter what .... will I be closer to or farther from my goals

It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not. Finally, I am ready to change!

Hi, Have been with Spark for a while but never realized that they had a pet lovers section. I have a West Highland White Terrier, that is 91/2. Good dog, very obedient and yet spoiled, and extremely smart. Have always loved animals, and although hubs wasn't keen on getting a dog, once we got her home from the breeder as a 10wk old puppy, he became her biggest fan. Especially a few years ago when he went though major surgery and was recovering for several months, off of his feet. He says that our girl kept him sane, and from falling into a major depression. And while she loves us both I think sometimes that "DaDa" is her favorite.

Hi all. I'm new to this team under this screen name but used to belong to it in 2013. I'm back on track, at WeightWatchers and at SparkPeople and glad to be back on the Dog Lovers team. I look forward to sharing success with other people here!
