Exclamation (Re)Introduction!

Hey guys!

I'm Tox! I signed up on here two years ago but never got active since I post on the Craigslist Pet Forum mainly. I noticed I first came here when my male dog was 10 months old and I wasn't even sure what breed he was - I was trying to get opinions from the internet...

Well, he's now a (still) gorgeous, happy, healthy 3 year old, and I've been sure of his mix for a while. He also became a big brother in September when I decided to take a leap and upgrade to a double-dog household, after only having solo dogs thus far. It's been an experience (luckily I tried my hand at fostering for my local Animal Control and Humane Society beforehand to make sure I can handle two dogs - also tried a cat but quickly reaffirmed the idea that I'm a dog person!!) We're finally getting into a rhythm and I must say my little girl has been the perfect addition and compliment to my boy.

A little more about me... I'm a 24, female, grad student in Indianapolis, IN. I live downtown, I part-time nanny for a family with 4 boys (ages 11-18months) and a border collie... they also had a Bernese Mt. Dog that they unfortunately rehomed this year and really affected me because I'd watched her from the time she was 8 weeks old. As a result, started dog walking for a guy with two gentle giants because I missed having a big, fluffy "people dog" around - now I got two of them!

I'm also a hobby photographer; my need to documenting my current dogs' lives drove me to learn how to take better pictures of them, and it's slowly evolved into an addiction lol. I noticed quite a few fellow photographers on the forum so I'm excited to swap notes and pictures.

Anyway, some of you might've seen my husky/aussie Haiku (Hike) around:







And my newer addition, 8 month old Wicca (Wick), also a herding husky mix, although I have NO idea what exactly is in there to account for those ears. She often gets dingo/African wild dog/fox guesses:







I've been lurk-reading the last few days and I LOVE the people and dogs on this forum, so I'm gonna try to really stick around this time and get to know everyone, if you'll have us!

Welcome back and please, feel free to inundate us with pictures.

I've seen another dog with ears like Wick's, though we had zero idea what he was.

Waitaminute... is that YOUR dog in your sig gif? I saw it on another site and thought it was hilarious!

Welcome (back)!
