Random fact: Most of the dogs I raise for sport end up working as K9s for the police.



Here I am with Aedan (Beverly Hills PD lol)

And below with Valor, my Lipizzan.

I don't know what it is about you, but I have a feeling if I walked into an emergency clinic with one of our dogs and you were on shift, I'd be really comfortable. I don't often get those vibes but for some reason I do with you! How odd is that?

Maybe I'm just over tired. LOL

Aww thanks! I try hard, unless you're the idiot who's dog has been in labor for 72 hours and you're bringing her in now because she's stinking up your house with the decaying tissue smell.

I LIKE that job. It is exciting, and fun, and rewarding. As well as being horribly depressing. Kinda like life, huh? Then again, I am only working ONE day a week now. Of course, it is our busiest day, but I have the rest of the week to decompress and heal.

Ohhhh boy... I'm in for a treat when I graduate school, aren't I?
I'm looking forward to it, though.

Nickname/Preferred name: Allie
Occupation: Pet nutrition nerd/manager at Global Pet Foods. Not something I want to do permanently, but I'm loving it for now. I also run AlliePets, a pet portrait/branding/design/illustration gig on the side.
Age: Just turned 28
About your dog(s): Finnegan's a three-year-old tricolour Border Collie. Got him when he was a wee pup, he drives me nuts and I love him to pieces. He's my co-pilot, I don't know what I'd do without him.
Interests: Pets & animals in general (derp), art, knitting, crocheting, running, gaming (tabletop, card, video and board alike), cooking, Lego, perfume oils, haircare...
Favorite music: Runs the gamut of genres. Electronic, folk and indie rock are my top three. I like a little bit of everything.

Favorite quote: "Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself."
Random fact: I was born to a mother deemed infertile (my older brother is adopted for this reason). At 44 years old, suddenly, BABY. Poor mum. My dad was over the moon, as he always wanted a girl.

Here's a recent pic: Me at work with my little ferret girl, Porom.

Nickname/Preferred name: Apricot works.
Occupation: Student until 6PM tomorrow (my last final!.. until I break ground on another degree)--working on my BS in BioSci, focus evolution and ecology. I also work part time in an evolution lab, although that might be ending at the end of the month. I'm trying to get a Biological Science Technician job. We'll see.
Age: 22
About your dog(s): I just have Elsie--17 month old best friend and destroyer of stuff.
Interests: Dogs (duh--specifically, clicker training and getting into dog sports), evolution (more duh ;] ), fish, reading (science stuff and sci-fi mostly; because of the stress I've started reading Dirk Pitt novels by Clive Cussler--they're not great, but they are fun), zombies, horror films, photography, art/drawing, RPGs (the only one I'm currently in is a text-based GURPs deal online--zombies and guns!), I watch a bit of TV, and I'm trying to learn to garden.
Favorite music: Older country/outlaw music. My current favorite album is Willie Nelson's Red Headed Stranger, and my favorite song is Maggie May by Rod Stewart. I'm also really into Max Raabe right now (Cream in my Coffee <3).
Favorite book: Toss up between The Hobbit and Lolita.
Favorite quote: "Just give me all the bacon and eggs you have. Wait, wait--I worry that what you just heard was, "Give me a lot of bacon and eggs." What I said was, give me all the bacon and eggs you have. Do you understand?" -- Ron Swanson.

Random fact: All of the fish in my home aquarium are cast-offs from work that were no longer needed 'extras' and are all native to Trinidad.

About your dog(s): Bodhi - 6 year old heinz 57. Amazing.

Interests: Outdoors, dogs, photographing things, food

Favorite music: All sorts. Psytrance, folk, pop, metal, electro, a million other genres.

Favorite quote: (taken directly from my faceache) You don't stop playing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop playing.

I'm old enough to know better, but young enough not to care.

"I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.

Come, faeries, take me out of this dull house! Let me have all the freedom I have lost; Work when I will and idle when I will! Faeries, come take me out of this dull world, For I would ride with you upon the wind, Run on the top of the dishevelled tide, And dance upon the mountains like a flame.

Random fact: Errrr... I really want a log burner putting in the house.

Me



My naughty monkey dog.

Yes, I totally fail as a self-photographer, lol. It's hard to hold the camera AND that big honking bounce flash steady with one hand!





I have no idea why I took these, other than I made the mistake of stopping at the truck stop and getting coffee after being stuck in a traffic pileup from a wreck in the rainstorm on the way back from the Writers' Guild meeting in Knoxville.
