Hello from Calgary

Hello everybody,
first of all, I want to apologies being the first time I post, even I join more then a year ago.
My family( husband and 2 cats) and I moved to Calgary 6 years ago, and that was the time we start to grow in numbers. Now we are a proud family of 8: 4 cats, 2 dogs and us.
My first "canadian "cat, Pisa, we take home from the streets of Montreal, after one month she had 6 kittens, that we place in good hands among friends. After 1 year Toto, one of Pisa's babies, came back to us and we keep him.
After we got the house, I start to research for my first canadian dog, and shortly we had Lucky, a black and tan american cocker spaniel, a nice boy with strong voice( you know what I'm talking about ), shortly after that we got Bella, a cute lil kitten, as birthday present from one of my work coleague, and after Mara a soft coated wheaten come in our life. The last we save from a family who wanted to return her to Humane society, was Smokey.
So this is our story, I do apologies if it hurt your eyes, but English is not my forte for the moment, but I promise that it will improve!!!

Hello, luckymara! :D

If you've been around for a year, you must know that we're going to bug you for pictures of your fur-babies! So I hope you have some of all your little ones to share! :thumbs up

If you have the pictures on your computer, just click on the paperclip symbol in the menu across the top of the reply window and you'll get a dialogue box that allows you to browse to your pics. Click on the one you want to upload. You can attach up to 3 per post, but you may have to resize them to make them small enough. When you have the ones you want to post selected, just click on Upload Files and wait till the the pics are uploaded. Then click on "Close this window" in the dialogue box and submit your reply. :thumbs up

Is it telling you the files are too big? They have to be under 100KB before you can post them.

May 7th, 2010, 04:39 PM
I have already resize the picture, but is no place where to upload them...

when I clic on "insert image", a window open and is saying:
please enter the URL of your image ..... and I can't figure what is this


p.s. thank you all for the warm wellcome

Could it have anything to do with the post count? A minimum of 10 I think is needed?

In her intro, luckymara omitted several important details about herself. She is the best cook ever! And her parents make a killer ţuica...one where you don't dare attempt to talk nor even breathe (not that you could) for at least a minute after only a sip. She's also an amazing person and wonderful friend :angel:.

Welcome to pets.ca, luckymara, finally :2huggers:.

If you look just above and to the left of the 'insert image' icon, there's a paper clip icon (between the smiling face and the arrows). When you run your cursor over it, it should say 'Attachments'. Click on that and it will allow you to browse to the pictures on your computer and attach them to your post. :thumbs up

Good cook, eh? :D

Only...what's a tuica? :o

Just want to give you a big warm welcome, luckymara, from a fellow Calgarian. http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-forum/welcome.gif (http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys.php)

Moonshine :)

:frustrated: OK, let's make this quite clear: bad tzuica is moonshine, good tzuica is something else altogether :D
Depending on the source and the fruits it's made of, a good tzuica is nice stuff....
