    Welcome! I've been a member and lurking for a few years, figured I would finally introduce myself! I know a few of the members already from RL and other forums. :)

    I'm Danielle, 20 years old living with my boyfriend, three dogs, and snake in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I work at a 25 acre private dog park where my dogs get to accompany me and work as temperament test dogs, and I'm going to grooming school to open a grooming business at the dog park. I've worked at numerous shelters around here, in retail for a little while, etc. and I'm still not sure what I want to do for a living, but grooming seemed lucrative!

    I have three male dogs; Frag, a 3 y/o GSD who I compete in agility and dock diving with. Sir, a 1.5 y/o APBT mix(?) that I rescued from A/C last summer, hoping to do therapy work with him and maybe dock diving. Recon, a 6 month old Border Collie who I bought for agility mainly, also trying out obedience, dock diving, frisbee, and herding. :)

    Thank you for the compliments and welcome, everyone! I will surely have more pictures coming soon!

    Hi Falon and Meagan! :D Recon sure does love couch play. What a lazy dog. Haha.

    Shai, thank you! He's from Red Dog Kennels in Belleville, MI. He's Falon's Robin's half brother, and he'll be doing a LOOOOOT with me. We've already started agility and frisbee, nosework is starting in february and dock diving/herding are starting in the spring! :eek:

    Hurray for snow and puppy play dates!

    My crew is doing well, we are having a lot of fun :) Kim is still a hilarious herderbrain, Webster is now unretired and having fun with agility in Webster-style, and Mira is...Mira <3. And the addition is temporary! :p

    I thought I remembered the name from another dog forum I used to frequent, seeing Frag confirmed it though. :) Recon and Sir are adorable, I can't wait to hear more and see more pictures!
