Hey all! I already know some of you but for those who don't know me:

I'm 23, run my own dog-walking and pet-sitting business which focuses on daily dog walking and the care of diabetic and renal failiure cats, I also work part-time as a liaison at a vet's office (which I did full time for a few years), I am a kennel manager, I am also almost finished (one more class, starts this Thursday!) with my Animal Care degree, and will begin apprenticing with a trainer sometime in February.

PHEW!

I do a lot, but luckily for me it all revolves around dogs. I have a Greyhound, Wally, and currently have a pit foster, Lady Louise. I work with a few different Greyhound Rescues, I obviously work with a pit rescue, and used to run my own rat rescue.

In addition to my Grey and my foster pit, I have a rabbit, Sexy Rexy, and a fish, Percy Kittens. I am hoping to take on a foster momma rat and babies soon. Never a dull moment around here!

I am thoroughly interested in nutrition and training, and am very opposed to BSL. I love to bring my fosters out with my Grey because it helps to soften the pit image, and I find many more people are likely to approach us than if I am simply walking a "scary pit bull" around. It definately gets people thinking positively about the breed.

Woah, that was long winded. I'll try to be more concise from now on! So hello all!

Some vicious dogs I have here, huh?

The let a California Brindle Fighting Dog waltz into their house, take over their dog beds, lay in their favorite places on the couch and defend him from scary mice!

I think my California Brindle Fighting Dog is scarier than your vicious man-eaters. Just ask your neighbor!!

She still insists that I have a "Devil Dog" that I am hiding. She's standing in the street telling my that the ACO will get to the bottom of it.

Meanwhile, there is a USMC flag flying in the front of the house and Autumn is playing The Marine Corps Hymn on her fife and the cop that lives next door looks like he is going to explode laughing any second!

My dogs don't know that they're dogs, they think that they're furry pre-schoolers.

I call them AKC Registered Attention Hounds
