Hi, my name is Melissa. I am from Rochester NY (well, we are currently living in Greece). I have 2 dogs, no pitties at the moment though. Lloyd is a "lollypop special", a big black mutt and Nash is a german shepherd. I will own a pittie someday when I own my house. Julie (my partner) and I were hoping to get a pittie before we got Lloyd but because we were renting we couldn't:( It worked out good though because we ended up with our sweet boy, Lloyd. We also have 2 cats and live with 2 other dogs, Allie (GSD mix) and Rhea (chocolate lab).
I am 24 and work at a local doggy daycare. Both my boys get to go to work with me which is great. I am interested in weight pulling and was told I should check out this site . . . I was told this is a good place to go to learn about weight pulling. I also love pitties and will own one sometime in the future, so want and need to learn as much as I possibly can about the breed.
This is Lloyd (and I) after a tiring day at work! We got Lloyd in August of 2007 when he was 8 months old or so. He has been a big challenge but now is very well trained, he has excellent formal obedience (his heel at attention is lovely!). He is a sweet boy, loves to cuddle, loves to play with other dogs and loves kids a ton. He just turned 3 years old this x-mas eve.
This is Nash (aka Nash Man). We got Nash Man about 7 months ago. He is approximately 1 1/2 to 2 years old. The rescue we got him from pulled him from a shelter in TN so his exact age isn't known. He is super sweet with people, good with most dogs but can be a bit of an idiot sometimes. He also loves kids and is really good with my niece. He is in training for search and rescue.
This is Allie, she is about 7. We cared for her for a year, and still live with her for now (but with Julie's family). When we move she will be staying her though under the care of Julie's sister. This is a better place for Allie than city living, she is just far to reactive and anxious for city life.
This is Rhea, an 8 (almost 9) year old cholocate lab thing. Again, we live with her. I help take care of her for Julie's parents (brush her, bath her, walk her, clip her nails and clean her ears and all that, even take her to work with me a couple times a week).
