Nadine and Mila suggested this forum to me when they were here visiting on Saturday(I had such a lovely time, thank you ladies!); and so I decided to register and become a member.

My name is Gwendilin Boers and I founded plus Manage a Giant Breed Canine and Equine Rescue in Eastern Ontario, CDA. Of course, this would not be possible without my very significant husband, Sean; who is a key part of the success of our program.

In addition to operating and being part of an all Volunteer Rescue; I am a Behavouralist, a PMT and also work part-time at a Vet Hospital. My husband and I reside on a 148 acre property that we have nicknamed '25-to-life' for there is always something to be done! :)

We are also blessed to be owned by dogs, horses and two kids! :)

I look forward to participating, learning and sharing on your board as time allows. ;)

I just got out of the June photo challenge thread and bopped on over to this forum to jump on your official welcome bandwagon!

Welcome to the board, BHRR. Hoping to see a lot of you in the future :D

And Frenchy, when you come down to kidnap the Pack, they wanna stop in at Gwen's place for a look around, so plan on a rather sizeable side trip. :laughing:

I guess I should have come to this thread before your other two. I'm doing everything backwards today. :o So, I already welcomed you in one of the other threads but WELCOME again......it really is a pleasure to have you here. :thumbs up

I hope you can find time to post pics of your whole crew. :cloud9:

THANKS so much again everyone for such a lovely and warm welcome. :)

I was not sure if I should post pictures here or in the photography section; so I will begin a new thread there with some more pics(HEADS UP now...that there will be a few! ;) )

I just love the Giant Breeds and while I will always have at least one...or two :goodvibes: ; I will always have in my family a German Shepherd and a Golden Retriever. My Golden Retrievers Jasper and Klondike(Rescued at 6.5 and 7.5 weeks of life back in 1996- full brothers from different puppymill bust litters); are part of my inspiration behind opening up BHRR and Jasper is now just under 11.5 years of age and Klondike will turn 11 years old in October. I cannot believe that so much time has flown by so fast.

Enough rambling.........ON to pictures! :pawprint:
