I'm new to this place, but not new to message boards in themselves. I love dogs, depsite my allergies. I've had 6 throughout my life, but only 3 are alive now. I'm 18 and delaying college to get my health in order, so I've got more time than I need. More time to spend with the dogs. They will be bummed when I go to school, nobody will be their doorman. Dixie is my 9 year old chow mix. Here's a picture from today - She's my baby girl. Mikey is 4 years old, and we've determined he is part poodle, part terrier, and he's got cocker ears. He's also quite demented, as this thanksgiving picture shows. Wickett is the youngest and smallest. We honestly do not know his breeds. We've heard lhasa apso and peeka poo, and when his hair is out, he looks like a pom. Or a bear. And an ewok with satellite ears. We love him, though. I have more pictures of them than I need, but I always needmore. Well, that's that then. Hello.
