Hello fellow animal lovers! I just signed up and think this is a great way to share ideas about our furry friends. I have a 14 year old Choc Point Siamese who's my baby. My husband and I are considering to rescue our first dog. Thought I could pick up lots of advice on rescue pets, and introductions to a cat. Although I should mention our cat is somewhat socialized to a small dog, but we are thinking about getting a lab / sheppard cross. :fingerscr

Yes - I'm working on the pictures - unfortunately my camera is better than my computer. My OS is Window 98. I'll post a pic of Minky soon.

Welcome to the Forum! I just joined myself and it feels so good to be among people with the same priorities. Way to go on your wish to adopt a dog. :highfive:

I've been blessed with the opportunity a number of times and there is no better feeling than to be part of another furry baby's circle of love. My Sandy is a 10-year old moggie who has dealt with numerous dogs at various levels of injury/old age/abandonment with a fair amount of equanimity. We found Spark, our dog, four years ago and he's a big boy - they've developed a great bond and I find that size really doesn't matter. You have to just take it carefully in the first couple of weeks. And like any first born, we have to remember that it's the first born that will need even more love than the newcomer!

My apologies for this unsolicited advice - your message brought back memories of our time.....

Good luck, and look forward to the pictures!:thumbs up
