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.

Hi all, I'm Ali and I'm the proud mother of a two year old, three in June, Siberian husky beauty named Allie. My boyfriend and I adopted her from our local humane society after she was in a pretty terrible home and she's thriving with us now thankfully. We've had her for about a year and she's changed our lives forever. Pretty ironic/fate that we share the same name though sometimes it gets a bit confusing around the house! I just found this forum and wanted to introduce myself.

Welcome! It's nice to see more folks from Illinois Smile I live in Florida now, but I grew up in Urbana and my parents are up near Plainfield now.

Love to see more pictures of Allie, she's a beautiful girl!

Philo?

We've got another member here from Farmer City, and then a good friend of mine from school has joined the forum but has yet to post. She lives in Champaign. I joined the Navy after high school and have been out of state for 12 years now, but I'm dying to get back that way. I was visiting my parents around New Years and I took my husband down to show him Urbana. It was great to be back and I was amazed at how much the U of I campus has changed.

That's cool! I really do miss that part of the world. I couldn't wait to get the hell out of there when I graduated (I actually got in several arguments with my guidance counselor about going to college out of the state) and now I'd give anything to live back there.

I was definitely at that point when I graduated high school too but after traveling around I see how much I do love it here! I'm definitely not a "city person." I like looking out and seeing fields and smelling the dirt when they're getting ready to plant! If I were to leave I'd move to Tennessee. It's my favorite place to be other than home.

Welcome Ali and Allies! I live West of Champaign so if you want to meet up at the Urbana dog park sometime…let me know. Maybe Merediths friend will meet up as well.

I need to bug her about introducing herself, so all you Central IL folks can start a meet up group or something. Coincidentally, her name is Meredith as well Cool

I would love to but at the moment we're still working on socializing her. She's still a bit sketchy about other dogs//people.
