Hi Holly!
I have a puppy mill rescue Chi that is the sweetest little dog we have ever had. I can't imagine what she has been through. She is somewhere between 2-4 y/o. We also adopted a surrender Chi direct from the family and she is 14 months and had only been outdoors once in her lifetime and had not been socialized. We could hardly get close.She is loving the outdoors and we have taken them camping and both are adapting very well.

Glad to have you with us!

Eileen

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

Hi Holly, so glad you rescued Sadie AGAIN, wonder why the owners even took her back if they didn't want her???? She is so much better off with you. Glad you adopted two rescues!

GRAMCHER, glad to have you join the team also, and it is good that you are finding your way around SparkPeople!!! It takes awhile.

Glad to have you both!!!!

Hi and great to hear from you. I am new to this and just figured out how to do the email, so sorry for the length of time it took me. I have a Hungarian Vizsla. She is a hunter/pointer/retreiver and she is all red with gold eyes, very good camouflauge for hunting but we just spoil her and she is six and half years old. I will post a picture of her as soon as I can.

I have two Pound Puppies! I sprung them both from the local SPCA. One is a Beagle/ Basset mix named Reggie who makes my family laugh all the time and the other is a Border Collie mix named Sadie who I had found on the side of the road near my home on a cold dark night around Thanksgiving. We took her in and only had her for a week because my brother had found the owner. So we returned her. After my dog Bandit(an Australian Cattle Dog) passed away at the age of 17, we wanted to adopt another dog. So we went to the SPCA and there was my Sadie. She had been there for 6 months, less than 2 months after we had given her back to the owner. Of course, we chose her! I believe she was meant to be with us.

I am new to Dog Lovers and to Sparkpeople.

My name is Holly.

I have a white akita called Mona and a springer cros called sid. Poor old mona has cancer but is still wagging her tail. I love em to bits especially my akita as she is such an aloof dog, totally disobedient, stubborn as hell. She is like an overgrown cat! Sid is a ball of energy and a handsome strong boy. Only day 2 on sp but love it! Tho went for a run in the rain last night and now smothered with a cold! emoticon

Oh pugs!! Yeah....I have a four year old pug named cody and he's fawn and I have a french bulldog named Libby who is seven! I'm just starting my weight loss journey. I'm trying very very very hard to only weigh myself once a week (on saturdays). This will be my second weigh in this saturday but my first since joining SP. I lost 3lbs the first week. I think my biggest struggle is drinking enough water. I want to...I LOVE water! But drinking that much water is absolutely NOT conducive for my job! I don't have the liberty of going to the bathroom when I want. Usually it's just the one lunch break in the middle of the day....so I tend to avoid water at all cost during the work day....but I try to do good between work and an hour or so before bed. I look forward to sharing this journey with eveyrone and absorbing all the tips and hints and advice everyone has to offer!!

I have three:

Morgen, a 14-y-o Standard Schnauzer. She is a bench champion and showed in Rally in her heyday.
Boston, an 8-y-o Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. He is my agility dog, working at the Excellent/Elite levels of competition. I hope we are able to earn his MACH before he retires.
Bakari, a 6-y-o Basenji. She is a bench champion and is a lot of fun to run in agility, even though she is quite the challenge.

I love them all and they keep me sane and grounded.

A one year old Pomeranian Pomperson, who believes the vacuum cleaner is a Pom-Eater and out to get him. Hes bright and beautiful and absolutely cannot take his eyes off me, so has to follow me everywhere. He loves our cat Elfie, loves to be bathed and groomed and shown off, but hates the telephone answering machine and our singing. emoticon

Manic Maggie, 7yr old rescue, German Shepherd..her goal seems to be 'overseer' of all things..like an over-amped hall monitor.

Kinda goes like this:
Maggie to a Labrador retriever: Hey! what are YOU doing over there?!!
Labrador socially sniffing a Jack Russel: huh? who me? just sniffing around.
Maggie: Well..ok..just don't be too long with it..carry on..Hey you two collies over there..play nice..don't make me come over there!!
Labrador: sheesh
Collies: yikes..what a bitch

The other 90 % of the time she is golden.

We were adopted by our "baby" boy, Button, who is a 1 year old Chiweenie (Chihuahua/Dachshund AKA wiener dog mix). He has the petite build/features of a Chi but has the long body & the gorgeous silver dapple coloring of the Dachshund. Most people think he is a "funny colored" Min Pin (looks similar to one in the face, but w/o the cropped ears) but to us he is just a 100% ball of fur and love! Don't know what I'd do without him.

he is the most adorable thing and i'm glad i adopted him two years ago. he was abandoned as a puppy and had a few health problems, but i saw him at the animal hospital/rescue's adoption day and fell in love with his precociousness. surgery and meds later, i was able to take him home and he is the epitome of loving life. he never stops smiling and snuggling and bouncing in the sun. emoticon

I have a Bichon Frise 7 mo old puppy. He is the cutest cuddle ever, and my first dog ever! I had all kind of animals (cats, birds, bunnies you name it) but never a dog. That's why after 4 months of trying to train my very smart dog that always gets his way with me, I decided to sign up for puppy training at my local PetsMart. I hope that will help us both work out some "differencies" and make every day less stressfull and more pleasurable!

My hubby and I have the best doggie in the world! She's a wonderful Boston Terrier/Lhasa Apso mix. She has markings of BT (along with beautiful BT eyes), except she has brindle medium long fur. Leia is everything to us, we got her from a family who could no longer keep her, and we never regret that decision. :)



"All too often you have many its that you want to pursue, and sometimes they conflict, a tussle right there on the boundary among three great dos: what you can do, what you should do, and what you want to do. When the three sit aligned, you're all right. But usually they fight. It's up to you to bring the dos together. This is where patience, persistence, and productivity reenter." ~Wynton Marsalis

We have 2 Yorkshire Terriers from different litters. Contessa Maria will be 5 on June 14 and Toreh Amadeo will be 3 on Sept. 11. They are the joy of our home. We have just started to let them sleep with us. They do very well. They each have very different temperaments. Contessa is very calm and submissive but can show that she take precedence over Toreh. He is a nervous wreck, always on the go, barks a lot at sounds and neighbors next store. (I guess they are just like kids-- never two alike!)

I have a Brittany/English Springer Spaniel mix. She is very cute and sweet. Her name is Jess and we just love her! She will be 7 on May 12. We got her early (three weeks old) as a runt and she was hand-raised, so she is unbelievably affectionate. My husband is retired and Jess and Jim are inseparable. They are great friends.

I have a beautiful Husky/Shepherd, named GIN that just turned 6 yrs this week. She's been my best friend since I got her as a puppy. My children are all married and have left the "nest" so she has been my "four legged" baby.
We have quite a few conversations every day. She rarely barks, but howls at me when she wants my attention or just to "talk" to me. Spoiled is the only word for her.

Boy you are right about the energy level!!! Zoey is always ready for a walk, playing ball or with her toys! She's only 2 and this is the first Jack Russell I've ever had but she is a delight and so loving and cuddly! She does want to be in charge, I just have to keep reminding her that I am the boss!!!!!
