I am the proud mom/slave to 3 dogs, 1 rabbit, 1 tarantula and some fish

I joined this forum in an effort to learn more about the BARF diet and have gained a ton of information and have successfully been feeding it for 2 months!

My kids -

Sassy - 8 1/2 year old female maltese X. Alpha of the pack (after me!). We did pet therapy in a special needs unit in Saskatoon for about 6 months.

Furby - 6 year old male bichon X. Generally cranky and unexcitable must hate living with so many women!

Brynn - 2 year old brindle boxer X. Rescue I adopted early this summer. Has come a long, long way! Barely knew how to sit when I got her, now after 2 obedience classes, we are training to enter rally-o in Calgary this February!

Samara - 5 year old tarantula. A beauty that's very friendly. Likes a varied diet of crickets, superworms, pinkies etc.

Bear - 2 year old female bunny. A sweetheart!

We currently reside on a farm just outside Lethbridge. I am a huge advocate of spaying/neutering and also love the bully breeds. Would like to own a rottweiler or APBT next!
My babies: Sassy - Maltese X (9), Furby - Shihtzu X (7), Brynn - Boxer (3), Diesel - Boxer (1)

I am allergic to the hamster, but my daughter keeps her in the bedroom and superclean so it doesn't bother me too much, and I am supposedly allergic to cats and dogs, but only cats bug my eyes, no dog ever has.
Guess I should update this! lol

We still have Melei the shihtzuX and my name is still Teresa...but that is all that has not changed. we have 2 kitty sisters, Rayne and Kaeda but all the other pets are gone :,(. none of them had very long life spans. we now live in BC, so that has changed too.

my daughter wants a hamster again, so we maybe adding that to the list of pets in the spring...and I want a betta again, so stay tuned!

DH and I have also decided that if we have an opportunity to add another little dog to the fold, we will not say no, but we are not activly looking for her, the right one will come when it is meant to be.

It would be interesting to conduct this poll at points in time, and ask how often the member visits and/or posts during that interval.

Weird. I thought I had posted in here.
Anyhoo - I have two doggers. Keesha, toy poodle, is coming up 16 years in June (pray she makes it). Sammy, labx, is 12ish. She is everyone's friend. Especially if they have food in their hand.
Numerous kitties. A lot of them are unadoptable as they are semi feral and don't let anyone but me near. At present the number is 37. I love each and every one of them. They are my reason for getting up in the morning. Well, them and Pets.ca!
There is always food left out for any other kitties coming and going.
Assumptions do nothing but make an ass out of u and me.

We can stick our heads in the sand for only so long before it starts choking us. Face it folks. The pet population is bad ALL OVER THE WORLD!
