Wow, thank you so much! I'm crazy flattered that you think so <3
You are more than welcome!

Nickname/Preferred name: Lyzelle - Lyz/Liz
Occupation: Unemployed/stay-at-home Sister/Aunt

About your dog(s): Zander, 8 year old Siberian Husky. He's a tad neurotic, but I wouldn't trade him for the world. <3
Interests: Photography, make up, all dog things, music, food, video games, COFFEE.

Favorite quote: Too many to even begin....
Random fact: One of my ancestors, Sebastian Fox, was a tax collector. One night, he was out and his horse spooked. He fell off, but his foot was caught in the stirrup and his horse dragged him home. He was nearly headless by the time they arrived. Thus, one of the MANY Headless Horsemen myths in Illinois. They also named the road after him, Fox Road. He was so many generations above me, maybe 6 or 7 back? Interesting none-the-less though!

About your dog(s): Eve, 6 year old border collie. Best dog ever. Retired (for now, anyway) service dog.
Interests: Dog training. Video games. Art. Books. Music. Nothing incredibly out of the ordinary.

About your dog(s):
Hudson is an almost 7 month old English Shepherd puppy. He's been the best puppy ever and has me totally hooked on the breed. I keep planning for puppy #2, but my husband has threatened me with death or divorce if I bring another dog home. I'm just biding my time... I did promise only 1 dog while we are still in NY, but when we move back to OH, no promises.
Interests: avoid all people and being a hermit.
Favorite music: Umm, pretty eclectic. I don't listen to the radio a lot, just CDs and my iPod. It's got a little of everything on it.

Nickname/Preferred name: Airn is online name but my real name is Erinn. (Get it, get it?)
Occupation: Work at one of the top Wal Mart Neighborhood Markets in the country (Seriously, it's for rich people. And we have a lot of healthy food!)
About your dog(s): Gwen is a 2 year old (nearly, birthday's in April) Australian Kelpie (mix). We rescued her when she was 8 months old. She came with plenty of problems, but she is constantly improving. And we love her. : )
Interests: Music, dogs, animals at all. Gaming. I love to game. And to read. I'm fairly boring, though. I live on the lake so I love to swim and jet ski. And my family is big into ATVs, so I ride those sometimes. I love to be involved in my community, so I do a lot of volunteering and brain storming for my shelter. That's about it. I love the internet. :lol-sign:
Favorite music: Most music except rap and country. I usually do top 100 or whatever if I'm in the car. I also don't like classical but since my SO loves it and plays it, I tolerate it.
Favorite book: Looking For Alaska by John Green (It's a hard choice but since I just wrote about it, it wins)
Favorite quote: I have no idea. I'm not really big on quotes.
Random fact: Hmmm..... I have naturally curly hair. That's not very intersting, but it's all I've got for now (And it used to be pretty long and I recently chopped it all off.) Oh! I always have to spell my first and last name. So... that's fun, right?

Our forum is so freaking beautiful. SHARE THE PRETTY WITH ME
Nickname/Preferred name: This one is simple. Paige
Occupation: Currently doing the stay at home mom thing.
Age: 21... though I look more like I am 16.
About your dog(s): Bandit is my 8 year old Border Collie (possibly a mix) that I have had since I was 14. He's a pretty lively old man when outside but super mellow and ghost like when in the house. You wouldn't even know I had a dog 99% of the tiem.
Interests: Children, dogs, horses, healthy living
Favorite music: Oi! Punk
Favorite book: Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind
Favorite quote: Think of the solution, not the problem. Make changes, not excuses.

Occupation: Dog trainer, veterinary assistant, student
About your dog(s):
Zuma is a 2 year old border collie mix that I adopted when she was 10 months old. I was looking for a sport dog and that's exactly what I got. I love her with all my heart, she is perfect. She currently competes in agility and disc dog and is my demo dog for my classes.
Zinga is a 1 year old australian koolie that was imported here last year along with Linds' Didgie. She has turned out to be exactly what I was hoping for, balls to the wall, happy, exuberant, and massively talented. She is currently training in agility, disc dog, dock diving and herding. Her disc career has started this season and she won first place in her very first competition. So excited to see what the future holds for this girl!'
Zip Tie is our newest addition. He is a 4 month old australian koolie that was imported with the intention of being my husband's dog. So far he has filled that role extremely well and I think they are both smitten with each other. He is doing foundation work for disc and will be dabbling in that sport as well as dock diving (hopefully!) and herding. Otherwise, his main job is to be a garage dog and to travel around with my husband to different car events.
Interests: Dogs. Not a whole much other than that. :rofl1: Hiking and photography I guess count too.
Favorite music: Pretty much anything nowadays other than most of the mainstream pop. Altnation is my XM station.
Favorite book: I have too many! Pretty much whichever one I'm reading at the time. I tend to have an obsessive personality, so my favorites switch regularly.
Favorite quote: Let it be.
Random fact: I'm a black belt in karate!

Interests: dogs, books, video games, geocaching, learning how to play piano, gardening.

About your dog(s): Rowan is a 6 1/2 year old Brittany that I adopted from NBRAN a few weeks before I turned 17. He's the love of my life, one of the smartest dogs I've ever known, my best boy, and I don't know what I'd do without him! In December 2012 I adopted Riff, an Aussie/GSP mix. It was rocky at first (especially between him and Rowan) but he's turned into the sweetest, silliest dog and I'm so glad I stuck it through. He's not terribly bright, but he is SO sweet and SO goofy and makes me laugh every day.
Interests: Musicals, books, video games, dogs... mostly dogs
Favorite music: I don't know if I tend toward any genres in particular, but two of my favorite bands are Nickel Creek and The Postal Service.
Favorite book: Fire Bringer by David Clement-Davies is one of my favorites! I also really enjoyed The Other End of the Leash. And, of course, Harry Potter. I am a huge Harry Potter freak.
Favorite quote: "Miserable dogs get upset and run around breaking stuff. Joyous dogs get excited and run around breaking stuff." I can't think of any of my favorite serious quotes right now.
Random fact: I have owned several rodents/small animals but the only one I'd be interested in having again is a rat. (Well, a pair, of course!) They were such fun pets and I miss my girls.

Nickname/Preferred name: Julia
Occupation: Biology undergrad student/Photographer/Goat Cheese Salesman!
About your dog(s): Chester is the lowest maintenance, most laid-back, easy-going, perfect college student dog anybody could ever ask for. He is absolutely my best friend in the whole wide flipping world. He was a stray who followed me home when I was living in SC, and while in hind-sight it was really probably (not probably, it WAS) an irresponsible thing to keep him, I am so glad I did.

Random fact: My spine is backwards.
You're in luck (or... not)! I've been forcing myself to do more self-portraits because I am insanely uncomfortable in front of the camera, and that goes into when I'm doing human portraits, too. So I actually have photos of me, (even if they're not traditional portraits)!

Occupation: Highschool student/substitute Pre-k teacher
About your dog(s): Suzie: Spaniel mix, extremely laid back, but at the same time she is the smartest one in the bunch. Quite capable at getting her way.
