Hello everyone, I made a thread for myself in the intro forum but figured I should introduce my dogs here as well!
First is Dance. She's an almost 2 year old female Toller, whom I brought home in June 2007 at the age of 12 weeks. She is my very first Toller, but I did have a Toller/Border Collie previously. My favourite thing about Dance is her complete love for life. She's the happiest dog ever, and thinks pretty much everything is cause for celebration. She's very enthusiastic, and in true Toller fashion, puts 110% into everything she does. She's a very eager student, who loves to learn and does so quickly. She's very energetic and is unstoppable outside when and where warranted, but has a very good "off switch" and is very laid back in and around our home. I was showing Dance in conformation, but we're taking a break for a while as she needs some time to mature and fill out a little. I think we're going to try Rally-Obedience next! And perhaps later this year finally get started in Agility also.
Next is the Spring-a-ling. Spring came to live with me at the end of September 2008 at the age of 7 months. She's now just about 11 months. I've shown her once, and although her front legs are a bit crooked, the judges seemed to really like the rest of her... so we're going to continue showing and see what happens. She's a very sweet, laid back girl who thinks everyone needs a Spring in their life. As much as she likes people though, she makes sure to save her true "OMG I love you!!" side for me and the rest of the family.
And finally, last but not least, is Keira. She's a year old Doberman, and as I said in my intro, is technically more my mom's dog, but she and I do a lot together as well since I still live at home. She's a very sweet girl, and has never met a stranger as of yet. She loves everyone. She has energy to spare and is go-go-go all the time! The only thing that wears her out is a 3 hour walk (or in her case, run) in the park. Mom got her simply as a pet, but I'd like to try for her CGN and perhaps try some Rally-O out, too.
