Get fit enough to keep up with my dogs.

Personal Information:
I'm a SWF 50-something native Oregonian. My dogs are my kids & my reason for getting fit.

I enjoy gardening--flowers by preference & veggies for health. I love old dogs & old movies, reading British cozy mysteries, non-fiction history, and all-things-dog.

I spend probably too much time reading dog training lists, books & Sparkpeople!

Its a good think I picked up a couple new pair of walking shoes at a sale recently. We walked over 2 miles this morning, then I took her to the dog park for over an hour. She seems a little calmer.

Thanks for the goodies/puppy toys. She is a 9 month old Border Collie mix. I think she is mixed with terrier of some kind. The shelter called her Domino so you can guess what colors she is. Will post pix soon.
