I'm New! Just wanted to say Hi!

Hi: I've been reading posts on this site for a few weeks now and decided I wanted to become a part of this great site!

I live in Ontario, Canada and have 4 children (2 four-legged, one manchild and one child in the body of a man).

We have a beautiful yellow Lab named Shelby. She is an awesome dog (totally housetrained by 5 months), calm and gentle. Her only setback is that she CHEWS!! She would eat the furniture if left unattended. From what I hear, this is common with this breed for the first few years. We will be patient. (Oh yeah, and twice a year she sheds so much our hardwood floors look like carpets! Hard to believe she's not bald from the amount of hair coming off her!!)

We recently adopted our first small dog...a Mini Schnauzer named Jimmy! He is about 14 weeks old now and, believe it or not, sleeps through the night...bed at ten, up at six. Can't ask for better than that!! He's absolutely adorable and, we have discovered, easy to spoil! Too cute for words!

Jimmy and Shelby love each other, but we have to be careful Shelby doesn't step on him....he's still so small!!

I am going to try to add pics of my dogs .... hope it works!!

This is a great site and I can see that it has been very helpful for many people and pets. Keep up the great job!

Welcome to! :D Your babies are very cute! I can empathize with your shedding situation. My oldest heeler sheds a lot, all year long!!! I too am surprised she still has a full coat and no bald spots!!! :eek:

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! And Jimmy and Shelby thank everyone for all the compliments (but I think they know they're beautiful!!).

In reply to "anniebananie", I live in Eastern Ontario, along the St. Lawrence River. I've never been to Lake Huron (Kincardine). Southwestern Ontario? I think??
