    Hi there! :) I've been lurking for a while, but decided that I might as well just get it over with and introduce myself and my dog, Roxie.

    Roxie was adopted from the shelter on 12/8/09 (born 01/02/09), after having been returned 7 times. Apparently, I had lost my shadow as a child and Roxie was happy to replace said shadow with herself that day. She has clung to my side ever since. The good news is, after the first two years, we've finally gotten her separation anxiety under control. She may never be able to handle being in a crate (she broke out on new years when we adopted her), but is perfectly happy in the mudroom.

    I had wanted to compete with her in agility, but unfortunately due to some circumstances, that hasn't happened yet. We do, however, "compete" in park and basement agility- she loves hopping up and over picnic tables, jumping up onto rocks (and pausing there), weaving through trees, and clearing park benches. It's really something to see!

    Roxie was born at the shelter- her mom was a dainty black Whippet (who was surrendered during pregnancy), and her dad is supposedly a Boxer... I think the dad may have some sort of bulldog in him. Roxie was listed as a Whippet/Pit Bull mix. She seems to be pretty on par with those breeds.

    Anyways, I should probably stop writing a book about my dog and just post some pictures, lol. If you have any questions for me, please ask!

    When I first got her, she was ALWAYS here:

    After a while, she learned that it was okay to be elsewhere:

    She also learned the joys of peanut butter!

    And then I started making her take pretty pictures with things she wanted to shred

    Soon, she decided she needed pretty collars like this

    "Too many collars? NO SUCH THING!!"

    She is especially serious about posing on rocks. Cuz her name is Roxie. She rolls that way.

    I suppose I should post a little bit more about myself...

    Well, aside from dogs my other love is media- photography, books, movies, music. I got into books when my grandparents got the second (instead of the first, because they are weird :p) Harry Potter. Thanks to HP, I got really, really into special effects, and therefore into photography as well.

    My favorite authors are Rowling, Riordan (Percy Jackson), Kenyon, and Armentrout. Thanks to Armentrout, Daemon and Katy have replaced Nykyrian and Kiara as my OTP. I love anything involving the preternatural- angels, demons, werewolves, etc. Not big into vampires, though. Also not that big of a fan of aliens, unless they are Luxen.

    I'm a Doctor Who fan. So no, I'm not excited for Christmas. lol. Also a fan of Supernatural, Teen Wolf, Orphan Black, so on and so forth and what have you.

    As for music... I mostly listen to post hardcore. I could probably survive listening to only We Came As Romans. I've been a fan of Bring Me The Horizon since... I can't even remember. However, I also like different music... most of the stuff on Fearless Records, is what I listen to.

    Other bands I like are You Me At Six, Asking Alexandria, Alex Band (and The Calling), Breathe Carolina, The Maine, Mayday Parade, Quietdrive, A Skylit Drive, We Are The In Crowd, and so on.

    Pretty sure I'm done now, haha :)
