Just Joined, Hey There

Hello, I've just joined the forum, obviously. This is the second dog forum I've joined in the past couple days looking for a really active one ...this one does seem to be active, so hopefully it'll stick.
My name is Skye. I have one dog at the moment, a 53lb(she was the runt of the litter) German Shorthaired Pointer/Pit/general mutt mix, I've had her since she was 8 weeks old and she's 4 now. I got her for free from a Walmart parking lot. By far the best thing I ever got at Walmart! She's just a wonderful dog. Her name is Nika, also known as The Noodle.
In late summer/early fall of next year I will be getting an Ibizan Hound, probably rescuing one from Spain but there is a chance I will be getting one from a breeder if importation/shipping costs far outweigh the costs of a breeder puppy. I really would like to rescue one though. I still have a bit of time to look into it.

Want to see some pictures of my girl? She's filled out some since these were taken (I don't have any good recent ones), but she's still quite lithe. Just her body type.




I can't wait to start posting here and get to know everyone, really looking forward to it.

Hi and welcome to you and Nika. She's a lovely looking girl, thanks for the pics! One of our lure coursing club members has three Ibizan houds; she tells me they are chuck full of personality, and have a tendency to want to escape at full speed, but they are quite lovely dogs. I look forward to getting to know you, Nika and your hound, when you get one.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I'm familiar w/ their tendency to escape at full speed. Though I don't have any in-person experience w/ the breed I have done quite a bit of research. I just emailed a breeder today, to see about getting on the (presumably long) waiting list should the importation/shipping costs be prohibitively high, or the rescue plan not work out for some other reason. Unfortunately I just lost my job today(and I'm on vacation too. yes, they laid me off while I was gone. I do have two weeks after I get back though). I have an interview on the 13th and I'm looking into a place to live, but I will not have near as much money to save w/ this new job and living situation. Hopefully I can get 2 jobs lined up, at least until season (winter) starts, and continue saving for my Ibizan Hound. Of course there's upcoming cardiologist bills for Nika too. I'm sure by the beginning of next fall I'll have gotten my puppy money together one way or another though, just have to put aside $100/month plus what my bank automatically deposits into my savings account.
This turned into quite a long-winded post, I'm sorry. Really just needed to vent somewhere. =/
