: Just wanted to say Hi
: LibbyP October 29, 2006, 07:45:18 AM
Not sure if I'm doing this at all right, but I just wanted to say Hi to everyone, I was just told about this forum today, and it seems to be right up my alley. I am a SAHM with 2 sm children 5(Jun) and 3(Jan). We share our home with a senior Walkerhound x 13(Dec) and a English Mastiff 5(Jan) as well as 2 crazy Siamese. I will be nice to be able to share with others about cleaning slingers off the ceiling and know what I'm talking about ;D I have been involved with animals for the past 12yrs in alot of different areas, greatest challenge was animal cruelty agent/supervisor and rescue work but also very rewarding. well thats alittle about me cannot wait to do some more reading on the other posts.

Welcome to the group!  It sounds like you have found your home (within your home  ;)).  We're all crazy about our four legged pals and can't wait for you to post some pictures of your pack!

I have two Newfoundlands, Cowboy, a four year old black and white (Landseer) and Chester, an 18 month old brown.  We also have three cats and four pretty much grown kids (and a son-in-law-to-be  ;D)

Hi Libby....welco me!  Your pups are beautiful! What a sweet picture.  I'm waiting for that kind of tranquility here in my house!!! :)

My name is Sandy, and we share our home with Sheba, who is a 4 year old rottie/lab mix and most recently also with Anna (Banana), a 10 month old Landseer Newf.  We share our hearts with Barkley (thus my user name) who was our first Landseer Newf and who lost his battle to cancer this past May.  Oh yeah - there are a couple of kids without fur (but still have some drool) here every second weekend courtesy of the top dawg in the house, my awesome husband, Doug.  Welcome!!!

Welcome to one of the greatest sites ever. I guess I am just lucky, my crew doesnt drool and slobber as much as some, but 3 of them are hairy beast ( The Pyrs) and so I am constantly vaccuming and loosing the battle to the hair monster. I am Paige and in addition to the Avatar, there are 2 more Danes in the house and another Pyr.  I am trying my darndest to get them all in one pic...

Hello and welcome!  Hope you enjoy it here.

My name is Chris, and my family consists of Keiko, an 8 yr old husky/shep mix, Gunther, a 23 mo old great dane, and Nigel and Posey, two 11 mo old rat terriers.

Okay, I have to ask b/c I am abbreviation illiterate.... ....what does SAHM stand for?  I've been trying to figure it out and can't come up with anything that makes sense.  :-[

Slingers off the ceiling...haha! I love the cute and funny phrases we have for what our dogs do! I've never heard that. And I thought "counter-surfing" was funny, that's a riot!

I'm Stacy, mother-to-be of a Doberman puppy, Boston. He was born Sept 17, and I finally get to bring him home on Nov 19. I'm so excited!

The warm welcome is overwhelming - THANKS SO MUCH ;D ;D

Shangrila - Thanks, ya they are kinda cute but for whatever reason she feels the need to touch him ???

Jessica - Drool, Drool, and more Drool

Tina - Jack is one handsome 'goof'ball'

Marina - Hubby's family have always been owned by AS Terriers - wonderful breed

Marissa - I love the girl's 'butterfly' costumes

Chris - WOW, your family has quite the age range, and double the trouble with the terriers. SAHM - stay at home mom (heeheehee) love to see what YOU came up with

Jackie - Cool, I want your hubby(one that gives puppies as a present) it's way better than a power tool(not that there's anything wrong with a girl having some tools of her own)

Kirsti - Sammi is way cute, how old is she? Very sorry to read about Bronx- he may be gone but will never be forgotten

Stacy - Oh baby puppy pics, I LOVE them, and yes very exciting indeed, I'm sure it's been a long wait. Boston is a cutie and I like his name.

Welcome to the nuthouse!  I'm Kat and I have two Belgian Malinois females and a malinois mix male.  They only drool when you have food so I can't help with cleaning slingers.  You'll love it here and your pups are gorgeous.  More pics please!

Thanks Kat but I think I've mastered the cleaning of slingers, its just nice to talk with others that even know what slingers are :) I know exactly what you are talking about drooling over food, before our big girl, we had a Redtick Coonhound that would go crazy when you peeled and orange she just loved them. Oh ya I forgot to add my name is Kim, nice to meet everyone ;D
