Year first involved with PAWS Chicago
I adopted Maggie (PAWS name Lizbeth) from PAWS Chicago on December 10, 2014. When I adopted Maggie, I was working on losing weight. Maggie loved to walk so we started to walk a lot. We walked a few blocks a few times each day and, before we knew it, we were walking a mile each time. Then on weekends we started to push our walks to the distance of three miles, one to two times a weekend, in addition to our weekday walks. Before I knew it, Maggie had helped me lose 124 pounds.
This year we walked in the PAWS 5K. We had a lot of fun at the event and went up on the stage for the alumni picture.
Maggie is a great friend and we plan on walking toward more weight loss. She is at good weight. Thanks PAWS for getting Maggie into my life.
