Hey from the new girl!

I figured its about time I introduce myself. I stumbled on this site in July right before I got my new puppy! Its been a great resource for me. I have found so much useful advice. I also just love to hear everyone's funny animal stories.

My name is Amanda, I'm from Manitoba. I have a 9 year old kitty at home named Rascal. He is one of the most amazing animals I've ever met! He is so strong; he's been through a leg amputation, extensive dental work, and a terrible skin disease! Not only that but his sister died a few months ago (so sad...) and just recently has had to deal with a new energitic puppy in the apartment!

My new puppy is my life right now! If I'm not with her, I'm always thinking of her! She is an american and english bulldog (mom was american, dad was english). She is energetic, super playful, and smart. Stubborn as heck though! She sure knows how to push my buttons!

I don't post much, I spend most of my time learning! This is my first time having full responsibility for a dog. I grew up with the family dog, but just moved out on my own! Being the mommy is definitely more difficult now! Wish me luck!!

Savanna is a doll! :lovestruck: How do she and Rascal get along?

Welcome to the board, Amanda. Thanks for posting the pics of your furrbabies so quickly--cuz otherwise, we would have had to beg...and we're really quite pathetic when we're whining! :laughing:

Thanks everyone!

Rascal is definitely mellow! He has so much patience for Savanna. She is always trying to be around him, whether she's trying to play with him, cleaning him, or trying to sleep with him. He's not much of a playful cat, but he'll lie on his back and swat at her a few times for fun! He even licks her when she's trying to nip at him!

I have to keep an eye on them together, just because I'm afraid she'll be a big bully, but he seems to like the company, even if she annoys him!

I'll have to post a pic of the two of them sleeping together....its the cutest!

You do have an amazing cat. I can't believe Rascal has so much patience with Savanna lol.

Is Savanna ever growing quickly! How big do you think she will get?

October 11th, 2007, 04:48 PM
Yes she sure is! She'll probably be around 45 pounds (thats what the vet is estimating). She's solid muscle though, I have a feeling she'll be able to knock me right over in a few months!
