pretty much how I refer to anyone too--and yes, some people know since I had to explain Wilson's appearance and how we got him...lol. That story only provided supporting evidence that I am crazy....

Oh heck no. My DH knows about it and that's it. I do talk about it frequently, but it's someone I know or a friend.

I just refer to chaz as "the dog forum I'm sometimes on", but that's mainly to my own mom. My hubby is on a need-to-know basis, and this is something he wouldn't care about knowing anyway, so it's nice to have a "me" place to escape to. When talking to other people IRL, if I refer to one of y'all for some reason or another, I'll just say "this woman I know..." or something like that.

There are a few of y'all that I talk to outside of chaz, and if you're on my facebook, you're blessed. LOL Naw, but I'm actually a private person, and I like to be able to explain to myself how I know everyone on my facebook. But I'm slowly opening my facebook up to chaz people, and while baby steps, it's still a big step for me.

I also lie and say I know you guys from dog showing. Well indirectly, I will call you 'dog people'. Most my friends/coworkers know I used to show so they tend to assume. And I have a lot of friends on a forum I was on since 13 (and still rarely post on) that show. So... yeah y'all are 'dog friends'.

I wish I could figure out a way to explain taking nosework, rally, and agility classes though. Cause I always get asked 'Doing anything fun tonight?' And me thinking 'Oh yeah going to agility practice!' But the couple times I've actually said that I get the weird look. I've had to explain to family that dogs are like horseback riding to Rhonda, akido to Emily, and hunting to my dad. Once I explained that they're a HOBBY in addition to 'just pets' it seemed like a lightbulb went on.

Yes. I talk about it quite a bit. I'll say something like, "Well...someone I know on the dog forum I go on has _________." Or, "someone I know has *insert breed*." "we were talking about ___________on the dog forum today and bla bla bla." Stuff like that. Yes, absolutely. You're all a part of my life, my real life...just as surely as someone I can see and touch. And I think people...at least those in my family get that. I've told my daughter things that have happened that are really sad and she is sad for you. She'll get tears in her eyes when I show her pictures or tell her that someone just lost her dog. You Chazzers are an integral part of the real world to me.

I have actually tried to get a few people at work, who recently got puppies, to check out Chaz for advice since I've learned a lot from you 'crazy dog people' and you're way better than that idiot, Cesar.

Hubby knows. I don't really have anyone else I could talk to about it though. Families doesn't know.

Like you aks them their interests and they are just like "Oh you know.. I dunno.. I like to hang out with my friends.. music is ok..movies are ok.." and you get to know them and they continue to stand by this "normal person" persona.
I know a TON of people like this and it kind of freaks me out. And it's not like they don't do anything they just don't get overly excited/passionate about anything.

I have so many interests it's always kind of an awkward conversation because when you aren't really into anything it's kind hard to sustain a conversation.

I do refer to chaz IRL but only to close friends/family. Otherwise it's just "a person I know" yadda yadda.

I have a friend who probably appears to have no passions, but she really does. You just vhave to know her well first before she'll share them with you.
