Hiya!!!

Hi everybody!!

My name is Melissa and I own a 10 month old foxhound called Dodger and a 2 year old Siamese cat called Minnow. I found Dodger on the side of the road when he was aprroximately 6-8 weeks old and Minnow was bought for me as a birthday present (I would have preferred to rescue). Both of them are the light of my life!!

I'm a student at Carleton University - which allowed me to spend lots of time training my puppy (and he REALLY needed it!!!)

I can't wait to visit the other forums and learn more!! This is the first Canadian forum I've come across and I'm so happy to have found it!!

I"ll try to attach a picture of Dodger and Minnow!

Does anyone else own a foxhound!??

Melissa

Dodger at 6 1/2 months of age! He surprisingly loved the snow and the cold(even though his coat is quite thin!)

Welcome!

That is one beautiful cat, and I have to say the coolest cat-name ever.

The pic of Dodger in the air is PRICELESS!

Hi there!

What beautiful fur-babies! Nice to see an old fashioned "applehead" Siamese and the action shot of Dodger is amazing!

I do know someone who has an English Foxhound.He's very....LIVELY!!
