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!

I had a good laugh out of the Monster story. Especially when it says the Monster flies over to Elizabeth Lake. Another area we love taking a drive too. All of these years, we have never seen him lol.

Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my picture with Ruby, my daughter's dog. I really am not a dog person - actually prefer cats. But, seems that Ruby "loves" me - and when i go over she is right at my feet. I tell her that I do not like dogs and she just nudges closer for a pet.

The other day DH and I were headed to the store. We drove down our street, got about 1/2 mile, and there was a young gal walking her Basset Hound. A real handsome fellow too. You don't see may Basset's in our area. Sure put a smile on my face. Hope your week-end has been good!
