I'm DeAnne and my BFF is Angel, a 50-lb black and tan German shepherd-husky mix who we rescued in 2001.
I wanted a dog to walk with for a feeling of security since I used to walk by myself. My husband and I went to Adopt A Stray before they joined with the Humane Society and it was love and joy at first sight. Angel heels very well and shows good behavior, mostly!, but she is older now and has a hard time walking in warm weather. I will have to leave her home this summer.
I am a Volksmarcher, and we go on 10K (6.2 miles) walks. Angel's first walk with me was around both lakes at Creve Coeur Park, estimated by the Volksmarch organization as 10k. We stopped for breaks a lot and she was a little timid putting her feet in the lake. Since then, she has official credit for[masked]k walks, most recently yesterday, February 6.

Hi! I have a dog whose favorite thing to do, besides begging food, is go for walks. Since I like to walk, too, I am looking forward to meeting all of you on a trail soon.
At last...a Meetup for dogs and their people! All are welcome!
