    Hi, guys!

    I'm Kirsten, a college gal from Ohio and the owner of a spirited three-year-old border collie x Australian shepherd named Gypsy. In our town, a well-trained and properly exercised dog is a rarely, so we've taken to the interwebz to find like minded people and their animals to share our experiences with.

    I acquired Gypsy as a young puppy. As a lifetime cat owner, I had no idea what I was getting into with a BC pup. There were times when I found the crazy energy unbearable, and I almost gave up. It took me over a year to bond with the rascal, but I'm so, so glad I stuck with it. These days I have an incredible friend whose antics and intelligence amaze.

    Some of you may have seen me on another dog forum. I decided to branch out. I have the puppy bug really, really bad, and since it's not time for another dog quite yet (but soon), I gave myself another outlet for my canine fanaticism.

    A few pictures of my girl:

    Welcome to the forum!

    She's absolutely adorable! I really really love her ears! I bet between those and that cute face she's incredibly expressive.

    Hope you enjoy it here!

    The kind greetings are appreciated! :)

    @JacksonsMom - Hehe, yup! I was super sneaky (& creative) when I chose the same username for this forum as the other.

    @Linds - Her ears are my favorite feature of hers. She does all sorts of crazy tilts with them, depending on her mood. Sometimes they're up, sometimes down, sometimes in between, sometimes she can't make up her mind about 'em. And you're right, they make her very expressive!
