Hi -
I probably belong to too many forums, but why not one more, eh? Haha.
I'm from Connecticut and I've been into the breed for about a year or two. I adopted my first APBT, Gracie, from a nearby animal control a little more than a year ago.
She's about 2 years old now, and she is quite the dog. She's mostly a typical APBT -- loyal, athletic, intelligent, etc. She's just an all-around great dog. She has her flaws as all dogs do, but really, she's my heart dog.
She's the reason I got into photography and vet med... I probably owe my future to her. After taking pictures of her, I started taking pictures of other things, one thing led to another, and... now I'm really into photography (I just have a basic SLR -- I really prefer film over digital). And after getting Gracie I decided to take a vet science course, and low and behold, I think vet med is my calling.
So yeah, thanks Gracie. :wink:

I have a small photography website where you can order some of my prints. All profits go to pit bull-related causes (right now I'm focusing on getting towels and treats for the Hartford Dog Pound). I'm relatively new to photography, so there isn't anything National Geographic-worthy (yet :wink: ), but I would like to think I'm improving. :mrgreen:

And, last but not least, some pictures of Gracie!

Welcome! Nice pictures! I especially like the one where it looks like Gracie is peeking over the edge of the frame :)

There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.

I'm already having a blast looking at all the pictures in the Gallery section. I think most of my time on this board will be spent there. :oops:
