Dashing Through The Snow...

Savvy and I have a New Year's resolution to tackle in 2008; we both need to lose a little weight. At 160+ lbs, my 26-month-old puppy is not really fat, but inactivity on colder days, and me being out of shape and motivation, has added some extra pounds on him. We are now walking absolutely every morning (snow or shine) for at least 30 minutes, and making time to play catch with the tennis ball. What really gets him moving is playing with his friends, so we'll be spending more time with Nala, especially since they can run wild on the lake in the winter without getting in trouble or going anywhere near a road.
By the way, this date is also a cause for celebration for our little family. Two years ago on January 11th Savage came home for the very first time, to live with Randy and me! You can check out his puppy pictures and read about his first month with us here. It's been a wild ride so far, and so worth it. Thank you, Kim, for allowing me to share my life with such a sweet, gentle soul.

    Wow time sure does fly. We brought Louie home the weekend after Labor Day this year when he weighed like 5 pounds. Now he is 6 months old and almost as tall as Gus. He isn't quite as fast as Gus but he is gaining ground every day.. Yes these puppies are truly God sends to share their love with us...
