Hi, let me introduce myself. I am female, live in the rural northeastern USA, and have always had dogs of one kind or another. My boyfriend and I currently own 6 registered German Shepherds, a registered Cocker Spaniel, and I am unofficially fostering a couple of large stray mixbreed dogs which look like a St. Bernard mix and a GSD/Aussie mix and I am trying to find their owners. I also have a goat, two sheep, a horse and a donkey, some cats, rabbits and chickens. I haven't been too popular on some of the other boards because my opinions don't always agree with those of the other posters, I am not the quickest to post pics to make other people happy, and I post in spurts--depending upon my health or how busy I am. And if I don't feel like answering someone's questions, I don't. My pet peeves are people who tailgate, talk radio, cyberstalkers, and political/religious discussions. My hobbies are dogs, dogs, dogs. I enjoy watching some types of movies, reading, and landscaping. If I post an opinion, that doesn't mean that I disagree with anyone or that I desire to start an argument. I prefer that if people disagree with me and my methods, that they pm me instead of collectively attacking me on the boardsite. I appreciate good advice, valuable information, and nice people. Have a good day and let's all get along.
