What's your dog's name and how old are they? What breed or mix are they? (We're not picky, just curious!)

Ramona (GSD mix) 7 years, Annie (deaf Pit mix) 1 year, Andy (Chihuahua-Dachsund) 1 year, Maggie (Yellow Lab) 11 years and Jenny (Terrier) 2 years. My little Rat Terrier Bitsy died this year.

What area of Houston do you and your dog live? How did you and your dog find each other?

We live just outside the Galleria. I adopted Maggie first from the Houston SPCA and Bitsy from the Corpus Christi Animal Shelter in 2005, we found Ramona wandering the streets in 2008, Annie was adopted from the Galveston Animal Resource Center in 2013 and Andy was adopted from BARC and I found Jenny on the street. Maggie lives mainly with my ex, but she visits us often.

What is your dog's favorite activity? (Dog parks, dog sports, hiking, etc.)

All the dogs love hiking, but now we have to go very slowly and be careful because Maggie can't go very far anymore.

Which are you and your dog's favorite Dog Parks? Do you visit the large or the small dog part of the parks? Favorite Dog-Friendly taverns, restaurants and/or establishments?

We go to TC Jester dog park sometimes and they like playing at Terry Hershey park. Bitsy does not like other dogs, so she does not go very often.

Are there any special considerations which Members need to be aware of when socializing with Your Dog?

It is better to approach Ramona slowly, she can be wary of other dogs. She seems to react better when I am not with her and she does want to be the alpha with other dogs.


My name is Deidre and my dogs are my babies. I want my GSD to be more active and social now that her main playmate is getting older and doesn't want to romp with her as much.

    Welcome to the group, Deidre! We're starting off small, but we're adding people and events often! If you see something you want to do, dive in.. And if you don't, suggest something, or better yet organize it!!
