Hey Guys from N. Metro Atlanta, Georgia
« on: December 09, 2005, 10:34:18 am »
   Hey..I'm another newbie! We recently rescued a yellow labrador retriever named Harley.  What a big goof!! He's about a year old and loads of pure fun and love. We also have cats, rats, ferrets, and fish, and one old hamster. Whew!! We should start beginner obedience training January, so that'll be a new adventure. We recently bought a house with a fenced yard so we were excited about adopting a dog after years of not having one.
  Anyway, seems like a great board to meet new friends and great resources!
  Thanks
  Pam

Hi Pam.  My name is Ang, and I'm the proud Mommy of Sanity, a Great Dane, Hobo, a Chinook, and Araby a Llewellin English Setter.  (Well not so proud of Araby.......)  I'm sure you'll like it here.

Welcome and Kudos for taking in a rescue.  He's a handsome fellow.  Hope to see lots more of him.

Hi Pam,

Welcome! BPO is a great site!
I too live in Atlanta and between myself and two roomies, there are eight (it was seven until we rescued a weimaraner yesterday) dogs and one cat... my two babies are a hound mix and a dobie mix. The remainder of the crew are: yellow lab, daschund, three chihuahuas, weimaraner and cat. Needless to say it can get a little nutty at times!

Again, welcome!

Hey Pam, welcome to Big Paws,

We also live in N.E. Atlanta Metro (out past Lawrenceville).  You'll love this site. Make sure to post a lot of pictures.    We are owned to Angus and two insane cats.

Hello everyone! - I've posted on the giant Schnauzer areas but I have'nt introduced myself and the baby to anyone else!  I am the pround new foster mom of a 3 month old Giant Schnauzer named "Shy."  She was donated to the rescue group I work for to be used as a Therapy dog.  We're not exactly sure which area of therapy she will fit in best...but she's going to be a very special dog.  I am going to take her through pbedience and get her housebroken... .and I may actually keep her and use her for therapy myself.  I have another Lab mix that is certified through the Delta society and she and "Shy" have become great friends already.  My 2 Rat Terriers are not quite as sure about her  She was 3 months old on the 5th and she is 22 lbs.  I am in Columbus GA so not too far from the Atlant area...glad there's some other Georgia folks around here! Nice to meet you all...I'm already addicted to this site!  Heres some pics of my crew!
