In order to keep the dogs ready all year long for their competitions on the agility course, I put everyone on diets. I even count out the number of kibbles my littlest dog gets to eat (24 kibbles)! However, after I stepped on the new scale my husband got for Xmas, I realized I forgot one member of the team... ME! Eeek! How can I expect the dogs to do their best if I'm not doing my best? Spark People to the RESCUE!

A bit about the dogs: 3 of the dogs belong to me, the rest are dogs I handle for others. In the white photo (photos by www.ilovedogs.com used with permission) are PJpupp, Magi, Mojo, Gigi, Mushu, Beau,Abbie and Perry. In the center are some small group photos of our friends.

Below that are the dogs that live with me, Gigi, Winston and PJpupp. I co-own Magi but he lives with my best friend. Missing from the photos is my sheepherding dog, River, who lives on a ranch in Escondido, CA.

All of the dogs are proud canine ambassadors for the Active Care line of dog food by Breeder's Choice and for www.ilovedogs.com. You can see the commercial for ilovedogs vitamins on their site. Also, check out www.ilovedogsdiamonds.com and see the fancy jewelry Gigi and Mushu get to model. The least expensive one costs over a quarter of a million dollars!!!!

    emoticon Hello , I was SPARKING past your wonderful page, and I see how hard you have been working. We would like you to come join us on the QUICK FIRE team.

    It is first of all FUN, second it is NOT a boot camp type ... it is about adding a few extra things to your day to give you a BIG advantage in reaching your goals..... Everyone has a few minutes they can QUICK FIRE through the day. If you spend your day at a desk, take a few minutes every 2 hours to get up, get moving and get closer to a body you can be proud of. You will return to your desk refreshed, with more mental clarity and a renewed sense to continue working knowing you are closer to reaching your fitness goals. Giving your metabolism a QUICK FIRE boost several times through the day, adds up to more fat burning.

    WARNING!! It is proven that QUICKFIRING can lead to a HOT BODY!
    I dare you to come join us!

    Hi Deb,

    I read this Rat Terrier fact and was wondering if you were involved (either directly or indirectly) in making this a reality for Ratties? LOL

    "The first Rat Terrier to earn a title under AKC Sanctioning was in Agility on January 14, 2006 in Van Nuys, California."

    I just read your Comment on the Rat Terrier's A-Z Game . . . and it was so funny about how naughty Rickie Roo is.
    emoticon I beleive that is a sign of GREAT intelligence (in dogs and children). So just thank God she's so smart and keeps you young & on your toes.

    Thanks for the laughs. It's always nice to see you drop by the Team site.

    Hi Deb
    Nice to see you stop by Rattie's Moms once in a while. I saw the pictures of your beautiful rattie family on Annie's the other day. I'll have to get the 2010 calendar for sure. I think this year is the first I've miss in quite a while.

    Have a great day!
