First, thank you for the welcome earlier! A little about me and mine.....

We, myself and my partner and our 3 dogs live in a small community named Hope. Small town living but the "metropolis" of Vancouver is only a couple of hours away. My partner works in Vancouver during the week and commutes out here on the weekends. ( a blessing http://www.websmileys.com/sm/happy/1218.gifand a cursehttp://www.websmileys.com/sm/sad/1361.gif ) I'm a landscaper by trade. For the last few years I have built and maintained veggie and flower beds for a number of clients. I also dog-sit,groom and do light obedience training, which is all most dogs need! I "did some time" ( horrible enlightening experience http://www.websmileys.com/sm/sad/310.gif) at a German Shepherd Dog conformation breeders in the lower mainland. I recently finished an Animal Welfare course run jointly by the University College of the Cariboo and the BC SPCA. My passion/mission is to help animals in whatever way I possibly can. I abhor inhumane treatment of animals, as all people with hearts that are true do.

This is Hope. See me in the left hand corner waving? BAHAHAHA!!

Trescanis,I was just going to ask you for some info,about you and your dogs.
Hope looks like a beautiful place to live and your dogs are gorgeous!!
It's always good to hear about a fellow animal-lover,they sooo need good people on their side and you know,if Harper wins,the proposed Animal-Cruelty-Bill,will never see light of day :mad:

How fantastically beautiful! :eek: Town and dogs! Welcome! But you've made me so envious as California enters another summer! They don't call it the golden state for nuthin! Yellow, dry grass! And you get to work outdoors too! Send me a winter picture so I'll feel better! :D

Yeah! Right! Until I leave work and head home in my hot car and wait for the air conditioner to cool it down! Don't you have any ugly seasons? :D

It IS ugly when it is -30 degress celcius and your car won't EVER warm up!!! Pics of snow are beautiful, but when it is THAT cold, and sometimes colder, its not real beautiful anymore!!! LOL

Cooooollllddddddd Canadian Winters!!! (excluding BC of course, who don't even need block heaters in their cars) :D

Poor Chloe! She must have been bundled up tight. And for a Pitbull, who needs lots of excersize, that must have been quite a thing.

Welcome Trescanis :)
