Hello everyone. I recently joined and have posted a few times. I'm getting the hang of the format.
I have three fabulous dogs. Gabby is my three year old mixed breed girl. Her name came from her very talkative nature.
I found her as a very young pup, sitting in the middle of the street. She was very malnourished, covered in fleas and had ringworm and numerous fire ant bites. I couldn't pass by so I took her to the vet and she quickly responded to some TLC and medical care. I had no intention of keeping her as I had three other dogs at the time and my husband was recovering from a very serious medical condition. Long story short, we fell in love and she's a very loved member of the family.
Rex is the dog in my avatar. He's almost 7 years old and I adopted him from a shelter when he was around a year old. He's smart, funny and we call him "the good one". lol We guess he's a shepherd mix.
Belle is my Lab mix. She's almost 6 years old. She was also adopted from a local shelter. She's wild and crazy. She's a challenging dog but I've always enjoyed a challenge.
I used to own and train Labs for AKC Hunt tests. These days I am not active in any dog sports but I am a complete nerd about dogs and dog behavior. I attend as many seminars as I can to keep up with the latest research.
I hope this wasn't too long or boring. I look forward to getting to know everyone here and to contribute when I can.
