Love love️the puppy dog pics.... I had 3 German Shepherds over the years sadly they are gone, but we added a new dude to the family.... my son named him Duke he is 19 months old & 135lbs. We should’ve called him Scooby Doo he’s afraid of his own shadow in the biggest baby I’ve ever seen but will do anything for Scooby snack.lol!!!He is a Wheaton brindle Irish wolfhound

So we foster dogs, not 100% ready to commit to having a full-time baby... This was most recent and probably best foster this year. I love them all, but this guy was 9, blind, and had 3 legs. Snuggliest cutest dog ever :)

My sweet ole man Sunny. 15 years old and still going.

Unfortunately I just lost him this past Saturday. 1 month before turning 16. He was an amazing baby dog. I miss him so much.

Thank you. It’s been really rough these few days without him but I’m staying busy and trying very hard to stay focused so I can avoid the emotional eating. He was my best secret keeper for almost 16 years. [emoji173]️

and my 2 crazy Rough Collies, Freya (the older, larger of the 2) and Gaia, they are legit sisters, same parents, just different litters.

@Matt Z Beautiful pups! So sorry about Dutchess. It is very painful to lose a member of the family.

Thanks, on both accounts.

Miss her something crazy, she was so smart too, like, too smart. Taught her how to use a door bell to let us know she wanted to go out in less than an hour, then she realized that we came to the door when she rang so she'd use it to tell use she wanted more food or Water or anything else in that area. I've given her puzzles and she's completed them with ease, some in as little as 8 seconds. It's been freaking hard.

That's hilarious! I had an Irish Setter that was much more direct. If her food bowl was empty, she picked it up and threw it at you. No communication problem at all :D

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.
