Hey! My girlfriend and I moved in with her mom to help her live at home. She has a big house on a large property - and two dogs. GF and I are both animal lovers (hey, we love each other, after all) and we have several cats of our own. The dogs are an English shepherd and some kind of beagle mix. I built a large dog pen because they can no longer be allowed to run around on their own power due to recently more strictly enforced leash laws and the English shepherd's propensity to bother our neighbor's cows. We love these dogs but they have a few, relatively minor but frustrating, issues, which I'll ask about in other posts. Looking forward to meeting you guys!
