Seven months not-born.

I came here to get help looking for breeders, and found out it was the very forum my friend Beanie was asking for assistance FOR me.

Seven months later, Finnegan was born!

He's now just recently turned four.

Sorry if that's too OT, LOL Thinking back to when I first joined Chaz got me thinking about the above as well.
I was on a Chinchilla forum, and then a Chihuahua forum before joining Chaz. I learned about dog food from my Chinchilla forum, and my dogs were started off on high quality brands pretty much from the beginning (Rylie was on Innova from the time we brought her home). I have learned a TON from dog forums.

Before joining my Chihuahua forum, I didn't really know about BYBs, breed standards, puppy mills, training, etc. I learned how to seek out a good breeder (how I ended up with Rylie) and I'm SO appreciative of the vast amount of knowledge I've received from forums!

I joined before Raja was born, and she's five now. The rest of mine have grown up here. Sizzle helped to name Tempie. Boone... Well, he's young enough that most of you still remember that funny looking little puppy coming home.

This. I was young and immature and thought I knew a whole lot more than I did. Fortunately, I stuck around and learned just how wrong I was.

Auggie was, uh. *counts on fingers* Six months and two days old when I joined.
If I had joined one day earlier I would have joined on what would later be Payton's birthday. XD
He is seven now.

Happy and Kota were around then. Happy was 5 and Kota, best guess maybe 8 or 9 at the time? Of course they are both gone now. =<

Pepper and Payton didn't exist then... I'm not even sure their parents existed then. I forget how old their dads are haha.

Well, technically I've been here since 2005, when our Cavalier, Quincy, was just two years old. He left us this past summer at the age of nine. I took a little five year break and rejoined (under a different handle because I couldn't remember my password for the old one, or for the email I used (and I call my dog a derp?)). In that time we've adopted four greyhounds (lost one, gained another) and they were five, nine, and thirteen when I rejoined... three months ago.

Wow....

How the time flies
Middie will be 7 in April as well. I didn't have him until he was a year+, though.

Harry was five and Grant was eight. Stan was -2.5.

Harry died two years later. Grant will be 12 this spring. Stan is 13 months.
