Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hoping it's OK, I'm planning to use this as a photo thread and a loose journal.
Pictures coming soon!

PICK UP DAY

In July of 2018, we lost Macie - our dachsund / sneaky neighbor dog mix. It was a long battle with diabetes; she passed at home, on her favorite couch cushion.

August 2018
We took a family trip to our local animal shelter to get a new dog. We had discussed the dog we were looking for: 20-40 pounds, good disposition, house trained.

We looked at a few dogs - passing by a large red husky a few times; when we finally stopped to check him out, he was studying us as much as we were him.

He was larger than our criteria by a long shot but still underweight (ribs slightly visible), scraggly coat, and the icing on the cake was the cone of shame around his neck.

Through the fence, he seemed nice - leaned on the fence for a scratch. His amber eyes still sizing us up.
In the pen, he was a bit aloof - more interested in his surroundings than us, although he was friendly when we approached him.

After a bit of discussion, we signed the papers for a 62 pound red husky. His shelter name was Rocky, but that didn't work for us so we named him Kona.


More to come...

I Fit!

This is one of our morning tracks - really serene and we usually have the streets to ourselves so it's a good time to train.

That 'I fit!' picture is great but I'd have to have tagged it "... almost!"

Thanks for rescuing that boy, it looks like he's made himself right at home with a good home!
