Totally! BM, (Before Maggie) I woke at 830am. Now I get up at 6am and track most mornings, followed by a 2 miles walk. In the weekday evenings we walk another 4 miles. On Saturday we have club training, about 3 hrs. On Sunday my buddy and take an approx 6-8 mile hike with our dogs, followed by breakfast. I'm about 40lbs lighter than I was Before Maggie, and a lot fitter.

I voted both Yes and No, I was active before.

I was active before... very active. But, the dogs keep me on my feet and make me enjoy being even more active then before I had them. Plus, I can't just take a day off, or use excuses. It's a little of both for me.

I was fairly active before. When i got married and moved from my family (we'd always go on hikes, walks ect) I didn't have anybody to go with me on walk's ect when my husband was at work. Than I got Dixie and had a walking partner! So, since haveing her I have gotten back into the activity, even when it's 10 degree's out in the middle of the day
