    Hello! My name is Jess and I'm new to Chaz but know a few local members. I live in the Twin Cities area with two of my own dogs and one foster dog. I love spending time with them and playing various dog sports. See below for little intros and some pictures :p

    Dodger: part time snuggler, full time hamburglar. He is a seven year old Labrador, my "first" dog (if you don't count family dogs growing up), and enjoys agility, disc dog, lure coursing, dock dogs and spent some time visiting libraries as a therapy dog. He is still learning new things all the time and my goal this year is to have a successful freestyle routine with him in disc dog.

    Codex: full time spazz, does not sleep ever. She is a two year old Aussie mix (possibly with Border Collie or Velociraptor, but I really have no idea) that was my first puppy. She enjoys disc dog, lure coursing, swimming, agility and learning new tricks. Our goal this year is to rock the disc field and have a lot of fun doing it.

    Rafa: full time foster dog and all around good dog. He's a one or two year old Border Collie that was pulled with 50 other dogs from a hoarder. He is coming around and turning out to be a great little dude.

    I'm excited to join this community, learn some new things and share what I can :)

    Yay!!! You finally got through!

    Also, I think you posted the best pictures ever, including the one of Dodger flying out of the chute.

    Hey! Welcome!

    I'm already desperate for you to post a photo thread of your dogs!
    Your dogs are gorgeous and that's some great photography. What camera do you use?

    I'm a big fan of anything merle coloured so I already love Codex! Dodger and your foster are lovely too :)

    Thank you everyone for the warm welcome!!


    Haha, he has a tendency to do that to people ;)

    Thanks! That's one of my top three favorite pictures of him. It's the bug eyes that get me.

    Thanks! :D

    Frodo! :banana: (there sure are a lot of little yellow smilies to pick from...)

    Cute!!! They do look alike!! Can't wait to see more pictures of him! Does he like to play frisbee?

    Hey I remember you guys too! How is it going? I see you've added one more to the crew since the last I saw you, congrats! I like the name Newton, that's cute!

    Hopefully this cold weather will be a thing of the past soon, at least until next season. I'm ready for spring now!!

    Thank you!

    Thanks :)

    Haha! Thanks! Sara told me it was important to add photos :D

    Thanks!

    Haha, thanks, I plan to participate in the weekly photo threads (that and the Trick of the Week are what prompted me to join) so expect more photos soon! The photos I posted are a mash up of different types of cameras, the first one of Dodger was taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the second I have no clue.. I bought it from the lady doing the photos at an agility trial. The next two (Monkey Dodge and Codex) were with a Nikon D40. The next two not sure again, the lure coursing photo was bought and the puppy picture came with her from the rescue. The last one of Rafa was the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. My boyfriend took the Canon photos, I took all the Nikon ones.

    He does like to play frisbee! He's obsessed with it and tennis balls (really, any kind of balls actually. And I do mean any :p )
