    About your dog(s): No dog but a cat. He is a 5 yr old grey tabby. I love him and miss him to bits. Sadly he has to live with my mom due to Mickey's hating cats issue.
    Interests: Horses, Auburn Tigers, Military, shooting guns, shopping, eyeshadow, watching movies, listening to music, reading documentaries, writing in my Happy Book (thanks a million times for this idea Fran), discussing politics with my dad (that's fun to), oh I could go on and on.
    Favorite music: I am open to anything. My Spotify has everything from Karmin to Tyga to Frank Sinatra to Tim McGraw to Waka Flocka Flame to Aries Spears to Kesha to The Band Perry, etc.
    Favorite book: Band Of Sisters, The Most Dangerous Game, and Holes
    Favorite quote: I have way to many but this is my most recent - "When you wake up in the morning you have 2 choices... Go back to sleep and dream your dreams or wake up and chase those dreams."
    Random fact: I am watching Jurassic Park 2 right now. The Jurassic Park series is one of my favorite movies of all time. Along with Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, Real Steel, The X-Men movies, Resident Evil movies, He's Just Not That Into You, The Lucky One, pretty much any B movie on Syfy, and so many more. I LOVE movies.

    I really don't have any recent pictures of me so this one will have to do. Not old but not new either.

    Chloe is a 7 year old (8 on Valentines day, wow..) Dachshund/Chihuahua shelter dog. She is my true heart dog. I love her with everything that I am. She is sweet and silly and makes me smile.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Violet is a 2 year old Siberian Husky. She is from the same breeder that my previous Sibe, Holly was from. Holly was the closest thing I had to a heart dog before Chloe. There is still a huge hole in my heart that was left when we lost her and Violet can never fill that, but she has her own (just as big and special) place in my heart. She is not nor will she ever be Holly, but she has her own special qualities that I love and she does have little things that remind me of Holly that tug on my heart strings and makes me love her even more. :)

    Chloe and Violet

    Favorite quote: "You can't fly unless you let yourself fall."

    About your dog(s):
    Merlin He is a 4 month old Australian shepherd. He likes tennis balls, treats of all kinds, food of all kinds, jumping, running, chasing geese, and taking naps. He is sweet and kind and funny and odd and bouncy and just..perfect lol most of the time.

    [​IMG]

    Interests: Books, movies, running, the internet!, dogs of course, poetry, quotes, tv shows (mostly BBC shows that inevitably get canceled), nature documentaries
    Mostly books. I will find a subject I love and read EVERYTHING all at once like a crazy person. I love reading

    Favorite music: Anything that makes me feel something/goes with my mood. I love classical..I also hold a special spot in my heart for movie scores (the how to train your dragon & lady in the water film scores are my personal favorites)
    I also love cheesy pop music. Taylor swift, owl city, bowling for soup, etc...
    my ipod is a mishmash of basically everything. I love spotify!

    Favorite book: complicated question lol

    Favorite nostalgia close to my heart forever books? The harry potter series, naturally. I read them as a child and they were my gateway drug into my love of reading
    Also, his dark materials (northern lights, amber spyglass, subtle knife)
    and the giver! one of the most under appreciated young adult books IMO read it when I was younger and HATED IT. Re-read it as an adult and absolutely adored it.

    Favorite books in general?
    - Stardust
    - Rebecca
    - Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy
    - Lord of the Rings
    - Pride and Prejudice
    - Survivor (Chuck P.)
    -The book thief

    Favorite quote:
    " The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation.
    For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you. -" Neil deGrasse Tyson

    Everyone who terrifies you is sixty-five percent water.
    And everyone you love is made of stardust, and I know sometimes
    you cannot even breathe deeply, and
    the night sky is no home, and
    you have cried yourself to sleep enough times
    that you are down to your last two percent, but
    nothing is infinite,
    not even loss.
    You are made of the sea and the stars, and one day
    you are going to find yourself again.

    “And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.â€
    Roald Dahl

    Random fact: I cry every time I finish a novel. Even happy books, even sad books, even books I didn't really love.. the ending of it all just gets to me. You kind of immerse yourself in this world for a while and meet all these people and experience all these things and once it's over I just can't handle it lol so I usually cry.

    Nickname/Preferred name: Yvonne

    Occupation: Photog/ supervise the local pool on weekends because of some crazy situations that happened there aha

    Age: 26

    About your dog(s): Penny, the almost-7 month old Vizsla& Squirt, the 19yr old Yorkie mix. They are vastly different and I love them both. Squirt lives with my parents because the stress of Penny just wasn't fair to him. 19 is a little old to be getting a sibling. Especially when you have PTSD because you had to get plates put in your skull from a pitbull& a fox got the right side of your face. Poor old boy.

    Interests: Lots, I guess. I like long drives, running, swimming, biking& eating junk. I also love basketball& especially the LA Lakers. I'm sure I love lots of other things too, I just can't think of them right now aha

    Favorite music: Ahh I like Joel Plaskett& John Mayer but music isn't really my thing.. I'd rather listen to people talk than sing.

    Favorite book: I loved the Guests of War trilogy, easily the best YA books. Anything by Paulo Coelho but especially Veronika Decides to Die. Fabulous book that everyone should read!

    Favorite quote: Your memory is a monster; you forget - it doesn't. It simply files things away. It keeps things for you, or hides things from you - and summons them to your recall with a will of its own. You think you have a memory; but it has you -John Irving

    Random fact: I swim on a Masters team.

    This is my beautiful Penny& I when she was 3 months old ..oh, how fast puppies grow!

    And just to prove that I do have human friends ;) I also have a boyfriend ..but he's not making the photo cut for this round!

    Favorite music: Indie stuff, anthemic stuff, folky stuff.
    Favorite book: If I had to pick one? Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash.
    Favorite quote: This changes weekly.
    Random fact: I own every Godzilla film ever made. Including the garbage 1998 American one.
