New member - Hello!

Hello all,

I am new to dog forum and wanted to introduce myself.

We are a family of myself and my husband, three rescue mutts, a snake, and a bearded dragon. We have quite a bit of experience with dogs ... when we only had two dogs, we fostered puppies for a local shelter and then fostered retired greyhounds through a local rescue. We've had our youngest dog since he was 6 months old -- he'll be 7 in January 2014. Our other two are an elderly mother-daughter duo who needed adopting when their owner passed away. They are 13 and 12, respectively, and we have had them for about 3 years.

We are currently mourning the loss of our fourth dog, who passed the day before Thanksgiving due to complications from surgery. She had just turned 9 and had been with us for the past six years. We miss her terribly and the entire household is still adjusting to the changes this loss has brought.

Having and fostering dogs also means that we have seen how much information is out there and often how contradictory it can seem and can be. I look forward to hearing different perspectives and learning from others who have breeds/issues I've never encountered.

Hello and welcome! Your pups are gorgeous!

This forum is great for dog lovers. People are really helpful and we have some awesome resident experts! Have a look around and enjoy,

So sorry about your recent loss. I still mourn for my huskies who passed 4 years ago. It does get easier, but we never forget.
