Greetings from the Far North!

Hello everyone. I'm Kira (not my real name) and I live in the very cold state of Maine. It's getting close to winter and I don't like it. I'd prefer it to remain at least 60 degrees, but unfortunately that can't happen. Oh well. I have 2 dogs (and 4 cats) currently. One is a purebred Labrador Retriever that was born in 2010. His name is Sharpe, but he's registered under Sharpe's Eagle, and he's technically a yellow. He would be classified as a fox red, but he's not able to be registered as that color. My other dog is a male mix that was born in 2001. He's a mix of Shih Tzu, Poodle and Pomeranian named Maximus, though we call him Max. He's getting up there in age, but he's a really good boy. He's black with a bit of white on his paws and chest. Recently I noticed his back end was dragging a bit when he would walk and he was tripping a lot. I took him to the vet and they did x-rays. They found out that he had two blown discs in his back, poor guy. He's currently on Prednisone and that does seem to help. He's actually bouncing around again. I know he won't be around forever, but it looks like I've got a few more years with him still.

Hi Kira! Welcome! I hear you about the winter. I'm from just outside of Toronto and I'm not overly impressed with the cold either! I'm a big fan of anything from 10*C to 24*C, with no humidity please! Please post pics of your fur babies. Hope to get to know you!
