Hi everyone,
My name is Karen and I live in Valleyfield, Quebec (about an hour south west of Montreal).

I have 2 dogs. Walker is a black lab mix that is 3 years old and Sierra is a 10 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback mixed with a labrador.

We also have 3 cats, Leo, Bella and Jasmine. They are all 3 years old but we got them at different stages of their lives. We got Bella as a kitten (baby of a stray), Leo at 1 1/2 years old (baby of a stray also but in foster care since birth) and Jasmine just last fall. A poor starving girl that found us. She is truly the best and most affectionate cat of all.

There are also 2 kids and a husband in the mix ;)

If I could I would take in every stray that comes my way (and thanks to my Dr. Dolittle qualities there seems to be ALOT!) but we all know that is not possible. We did have a third dog, Stewart for a few months in the summer but after a few attempts I managed to find him a lovely home. We miss him terribly though :(

Looking forward to getting to know you all :)

Man, I gotta clunk on my connection a bit...I can get all of Sierra and about half of Stewart's head and then my modem starts to smoke! :frustrated: My modem and photobucket just aren't on speaking terms, I'm afraid :o

But Sierra is a real beauty! :flirt: And the ears on Stewart are somethin' else! :lovestruck:

I'm hoping that later on I'll be able to download the rest of the pics! Meanwhile, welcome to the board, Karen! Good to have you here! :D

OMG you cannot even imagine the antics (ok I guess you all can LMAO) I mentioned the other day to some non-dog friends that when I walked into my bedroom the other day my bed was on the other side of the room and I thought my friends eyes were going to BUG out of head! LOL.

The dogs run up and down the hallway and jump on the bed which is on wheels on a hardwood floor..DUH..what else could happen?? LOL

Nope we got him from an irresponsible friend of one of my husband's co-workers (Did not get his female spayed on time and got knocked up by a neighbour).

Why?

cause looking at him is like looking at my Brina, there were 7 more pups and I know a couple went to valleyfield.
