Hello, I've been hanging around the board for a few weeks now and thought I would go ahead and introduce myself. My name is Lauren and I live in Dallas, TX.
I have 2 dogs--a Lhasa Apso/Bichon Frise mix named Charlie who is about 6 months old and a Papillon called Tristan is about 1 1/2 years old. I got these two guys around the same time less than two months ago. After being dogless for almost a year I just couldn't stand it anymore lol.
I also have 3 cats--Fiona (DSH buff tabby), Mischa (DMH gray and white), and Brooks (Maine Coon).
I am a huge animal lover--in my family you have to be--when I was born my parents already had 2 shelties who helped raise me lol. We got our first cat when I was six and my parents have never been without both dogs and cats since.
I also do some volunteer work with a local cat/kitten rescue group and sometimes foster.
I look forward to getting to know all of y'all here in the forum and learning from all the experience y'all have. I know both me and my dogs will benefit
and Mischa for fun:
