Hi!I am in Idaho Falls, ID. I just joined today and I'm so excited to talk to people that are dog lovers. I have a 6 lb Pomeranian named Ginger and a cat that moved in with me. Her name is Boots, so I hear. I also have inherited my sister's Schnauzer mix. He is 17 months old and very agressive. He bit Ginger in the eye fighting over a bone. He is 33 lbs and has been biting since he was a puppy. He is actually going to go to a new home asap. I have been a truck driver for the past 5 years up until last October when I got fired for my attitude. I kept my weight pretty steady on the truck until Dec. 2009 when I had a valve replaced in my heart. I went back to work in March. I think I went back to early because I got upset over the smell of my new truck. I went back to work in May and changed companies 2 more times. Long story, won't bore you with it. Needless to say, I don't have a job now. Lot's of stress and family issues have been the core of my weight issue and since last Dec (09) I have gained about 30-40 lbs. HELP! Thanks for listening and good luck with your personal battle in this war we SHALL WIN!

Hi I am in Salem, Or., I share my apartment with an adorable Yorkie, named Titan. He thinks he's a big dog, just happens to have a small body.
I used to have 4 dogs and 3 cats when I lived in Miami Beach Fl. Was involved in animal rescue.
My most loved dog was rescued from Hurricane Andrew. Had Honey Girl for 14 years.
Am only allowed one dog in my apartment. otherwise I would have at least another one.

Hi everyone. I'm Missie and I'm in PA! I have been involved in animal rescue for years (Exotic animals, dogs, cats and most recently Horses!) I have a Pug (Snuffie) two tabby cats (Joe-Joe and Moo-Moo) We lost a Pug almost three years ago to Diabetes (RIP Weezer).
Hope to meet many of you and begin to make some new friends here. I am looking to get back into shape, don't have a lot of weight to lose (maybe 15 pounds of winter weight..hahah) but I *do* need to get my butt more motivated to actually work out again. **WAVES** nice to meet everyone!

Hi everyone -
My name is Lisa and I'm from Boulder, CO. I have two American Cocker Spaniels. Nora is 12 and Snickers is four. We're very fortunate because there a many options here for dog walking either on or off leash. I joined SP about 18 months ago but didn't really get serious until January of this year. Dog walking has been a big help in beginning to take off the extra pounds. I can't wait until it warms back up and I can get the dogs back out.

Hi All,
I am a dog lover from way back. Currently we have a Petit Bassett Griffon Vendeen.(PBVG, for short) His name is Max. He's 7 and he loves the snow, which is great since we live in CT. We have about 4-5 feet of snow on the ground and more on the way. Just wanted to introduce myself and say "hello".

I'm newly from New Jersey, having recently moved from near Pittsburgh, PA (GO STEELERS!) to Maplewood. I have 2 standard poodles, both from shelters. One is Joey, 7 1/2 yrs. old; the other is Lily, almost 2 yrs. old, but very much still a chewing and rambunctious puppy. She pulled too hard when she saw a squirrel on our walk today, and down I went on the ice. I have tried to train her to ignore squirrels, cats, and birds, but she really wants to pull, chase, bark, etc.

Christine from Edmonton, Ab, Canada here. I have a 3 year old Blood Hound cross (crossed with what, I don't know - possibly a coonhound) I rescued him last August, with the intent to get moving (my rationale was that I can ignore a treadmill but can't ignore a dog). It was working great until it snowed and hit -20 degrees celcius. Then he went into hybernation mode! I guess I should have gotten a Canadian dog! Hahaha.

Hi from the North Georgia Mountains. We have 3 dogs (maybe you can go to my page and tell ME what they are) - We know one is Lab/Pit mix and the sweetest of the 3 but the other 2? we have no idea. We do know that they live by their nose - catch a scent and they are off. They are all big and we LOVE them.

Hi there! I have a Lab mix rescue named Riley who is about a year old and two doxies named Spencer & Sammy who are 7 and 6 respectively. The dachshunds want to know why we brought this crazy lab into their calm world but he brings us great joy with his energy! He's a great walking buddy for me on this journey! They let my husband and I live with them in Orlando, FL where it's even cold here today! Glad to be a part of the group! emoticon

Today is the day! Make it a good one!

Hi! I have a 4-yr old Sheltie boy named Shep and a 1-yr old Smooth Collie mix named Riley. We just adopted Riley a month ago from Collie Rescue of the Carolinas. I call her my new piece of exercise equipment! She has tons of energy and needs lots of exercise...so we're taking lots of walks and runs. At least we were before all the snow and ice. We love our dog babies and dog people are the best! I'm in Winston-Salem NC.
