hi everyone, and I'm so glad to be here. I've been looking for a really active dog forum for a while, and when I saw your member count, and how many people were on line at this moment, I did a double take. this forum is the Christmas present I'll give myself. thankyou for being here. let's see, a bit about me. I'm almost 46, I live in Toronto, and I am the proud posession of 3 toy poodles. they are Jonathan, and Oliver, littermates who are 5 1/2 and Magic (no relation, but same breeder) who is 3 1/2. they're great dogs-I love them to death, but I'm about to make them very unhappy indeed. we just got I don't know how much snow, but it could be almost as tall as they are. I think that's enough of an introduction for now, I want to start looking around the forum and join in the discussions. I can't wait to get to know you.
