Hi everyone! I was a member here many, many moons ago. Life got a little bit crazy (finished school, got married, moved to another country, and eventually moved back), and checking Chaz just fell by the wayside. Things have settled down a little bit now that I've moved back to the states, and my husband and I have settled into careers. I also have a "new" puppy! For anyone that remembers, I am still "in" Shibas. Last year I lost my boy Tai, at 15. It was one of the hardest days of my life. The day after, I found out that a breeding I was really hoping for was successful. I like to think the old guy was looking out for me. I am now the proud owner of "Ringo," who is my pride and joy. He turns 1 next month. I'm so excited to be able to talk dogs again! Looking forward to meeting all the members of Chaz, and perhaps reconnecting with some people that remember me from way back when!
