I got invited to this forum by another user. I am from Northern Idaho and I have one pit/lab mix dog named River. She is the love of my life! As well as my husband is I suppose. We also have a cat named Toby which we have recently acquired. I love my dog very much and I just want to do right by her and do what she needs so she can live a geat life. River was abused before we adopted her and it's taken her a lot to grow away from that experience. She was also abandoned in the forest by a river for an unknown period of time and when she was brought in to the shelter from which we adopted her she was very very scared of water and outside noises. Anyway she is our pride and we love her very much and want to make up for the terrible beginning she has had in this life. That's pretty much it. I am excited to have a information and knowledge at my fingertips with this website!
