Hello Everyone!

Welcome to my blog! Anyone that knows me knows what an Introvert I am and what a big step this is for me! I’m doing this to help people with all types of arthritis, autoimmune disorders and just plain, aging, worn out joints get more joy out of the time that they spend with their dogs, and maybe even find some ways to get motivated to do more and feel better. Staying active is the key to staying healthy, your dogs can and should help you with that!

I’m speaking from experience, and don’t claim to be an expert on dog training or specific medical issues. I have been a pharmacist for 20 years, have had dogs my entire life, and had a 2 level Cervical Disc Fusion and Carpal Tunnel surgery this past winter due to arthritis. I have been married for 25 years to a wonderful man. We have three children, my oldest is 24 and was diagnosed with Lupus this year, my second daughter is 19 and has had a few surgeries to correct issues related to Juvenile Arthritis, my son is 14, and is big as and healthy as, an ox. Seems like the girls got the unhealthy genes!

This past year as been a tough one for our family, but together we’re getting through. Our German Shepherds, Rosie and Ranger, had a lot to do with getting me back on my feet. I had to learn to be creative to keep them busy and retain their obedience training while I recovered. They were only 6 months and 13 months old when I had my surgery. That’s a lot of puppy energy to handle! My oldest daughter has an adorable mutt named Hank who is only about 25lbs, but he keeps her moving, and keeps her spirits up.

Stay tuned to learn some of the tricks that I discovered through research, and lots of trial and error, to keep my dogs physically and mentally active even on my worst days, and how they kept me motivated to heal.

Thank you for reading! It is my hope to help people to keep moving and have fun with their dogs even if they are hurting or have chronic illness. I learned a lot through my own experience, and feel I owe it to others to share. Pass the word! – Connie
