    Hey everybody! Been lurking on this forum and saw quite a few familiar faces, so I decided to join in on all the fun. My name is Alexis and I work as a Vet Tech and Pet Sitter in Albany, NY. I love photography, and all things animal, but my passion lies with training. I hope to one day make a career out of it.

    I have way too many of my own pets, but my "main man" is my guy Aiden. He's a 3.5 year old GSD (West German Showline/West German Working). We love Schutzhund (well, I think I might love it a little more than he does :p) He's a big loveable goofball who makes me laugh my head off every day.

    He's also a very serious boy who is very protective of "Mom"

    We also live with our 9 year old Beagle named Freckles, 4 year old Pit mix, Penny, and my 15 year old cat, Sox.

    As you can probably already tell by the content of this post, I love taking pictures of my animals. I got my first DSLR camera this year and have been addicted ever since. So just as a warning, you'll probably get lots of pictures in my posts to come ;)

    I am also a big reptile/exotics enthusiast, and although I love them, I know lots of other don't, so I'll save their pics for another time. I've got quite a few snakes, some Crested Geckos, a Red Footed Tortoise, some fish, and too many tarantulas (all my BF's fault!)

    Thanks for looking! I'm excited to meet you all!

    Hello, stranger :D I'm Grace with that dork of a dog named Trent, in case you couldn't tell.

    So great to see you here, I can never get enough of your photos. Love the recent ones of the two of you training! Are you still expecting the new girl?

    Stick around, okay?

    Welcome to the forum! I think you'll find your interests line up very closely with a lot of us!

    Aiden is gorgeous and looks like you two have an amazing relationship. Looking forward to getting to know you, your dogs and see more of your photographs!

    I wouldn't have Limit if not for this forum - I had never heard of a Kelpie before!

    Same here!

    We have an awesome group of members, incredibly cool dogs, and brilliant photographers. I'd say you'd fit into all three groups, so Chaz will like you, too :)

    Um, if your dogs go missing, don't come look in my apartment, k? K.

    (Not that I'd be able to handle that many large dogs in my itsy bitsy apartment - that's totally beside the point.)

    Also, welcome!
