New to this site an want to say hello

I hope I'm posting correctly
This site looks amazing and I am so happy to have found it! I have three dogs and a horse. Up until a few years ago, horses were my livelihood, as well as rescuing many types of animals (ponies, goats, rabbits, chickens, pigs, turkeys, dogs, cats and parrots-birds of any type really).
Although it could be very devastating at times(seeing what people can do to innocent animals), it was also very rewarding at times and I'm happy I was fortunate enough to be able to have done it.
I recently acquired a GSD who constantly makes me laugh and is helping to keep me physically fit through walking and playing. She is my sidekick and while I adore my two older dogs, they are Terriers and somewhat disloyal(I know they adore me as I do them but honestly, open your car door and they're gone in a heartbeat!!) and the GSD is, well, just that, a GSD, a breed known for their outstanding loyalty. It's so much fun walking with a dog and not having to worry about what it's chasing in the woods! She just stays with me, no questions asked and no food required!
Whew, sorry folks, hope I didn't bore you to tears........

welcome to the board, Ravi! We'd love to see pics of your sidekick...all of your fur family, in fact! (pls don't make us beg for pics--we love them, but it's so demeaning when we have to beg for them! )

Welcome Ravi, your fur family sounds delightful. Like Hazel said, we love pics. I guess it's been pretty quiet in here over Christmas. Hope you and your pets enjoyed it.

Hi Ravi! You sound like fun, and you have such good taste loving a GSD the way you do. I must say I am becoming a huge fan of the breed , having just spent a fortnight with my sister's working line Shepherd. I have an animal or two myself. 6 dogs, 2 ponies, 2 cats and 30 or so sheep. Oh, I'm in Australia by the way. I have 2 red Australian Cattle Dogs, and 4 aged dark shaded sable Shelties. There are some beautiful dogs and cats owned by forum members.

Hazel, you always make me laugh.
