Default Hello There!

Hi!

My name is Emily. I don't have dogs living with me (gasp!) but I grew up with Catahoulas (and a Coton de Tulear, and a German Shepherd), and I just...can't...take being away from the "dog world" any more! Back home, my parents still have all three breeds, so I get a dose of dog to keep me sane when I go home for the holidays.

I'm a college kid, majoring in biology and biding my time until I can bring home a little spotted pup. And I think obsessing about dogs here will be better for everybody than trying to cram a Cat into my tiny dorm room with my New York City roommate!

Anyway! Nice to "meet" y'all =)

Hi and welcome! You'll find some 'houla company and just general dog nuttiness to keep you company.

Thanks, Zoom! I'm glad for the insanity...people in the real world are a little too normal for my tastes.

MHMR, is your middle guy a Cat? He (she?) is a great-looking dog!

Here's a little something to tide you over...my father's dog Mac (not his real name, since Dad would be mortified to see his hunting buddy all over the internet =) )

He sure is, and thank you! He's a bit bigger now, though.



"Mac" has such a sweet face! I love his eyes.

I love "Mac's" split face!

And we've got plenty of working/hunting dogs on here, "Mac" is in good company.

"Mac" is gorgeous! I am such a fan of dark merle like that.

Welcome to the forum! Hope you like it here and we keep your need to talk to dog people sated!

Oh, gosh MHMR, he really is gorgeous! I love his ears. And dainty little toes heehee.

Zoom, that's good to hear! A lot of people don't sympathize with the ridiculous attachment you can form with a "hunting" dog! They can be pets too! They just have to prove their worth once in a while =P

Thanks, SarahHound! What a gorgeous crew you have there! I love me some sight hounds!

Hi, Linds! Thank you! I see you have a handsome little dark merle fellow yourself! =)

Not that dark but he is little! He's just soaking wet and it makes him look darker than he is. Amazing how much merles can darken from what they were as puppies.
