About your dog(s): Merlin is a 1 year old Australian shepherd who enjoys long gallops through the beach, squeaky toys, peanut butter and shaking his thang. I like to call him the world's goofiest service dog lol he works on/off, but alerts always.

Interests: Being a literary glutton, running, documentaries about strange things, cheesy romantic comedies, any dreamworks movie, books not for my age group,

Favorite music: Lyrical pleasant pseudo pop music mostly lol a lot of Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, OkGo, Beyonce etc..
Mixed with movie scores, I love John Powell

Favorite book: Impossible question!

Books that fill me with the most wonderful nostalgia as they were my intro to reading? Harry Potter

Most recent favorite: Stardust by: Neil Gaiman

Favorite quote: “And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.” -Roald Dahl

Random fact: When I was in college all freshman year before I had any friends I never wanted to eat dinner alone on friday/saturday nights (when the dining halls are full of groups of friends on their way out), so I would go to wendys (and get nuggets/fries/vanilla frosty) and then go home and eat it while watching the cosby show because it made me feel better
Now watching the cosby show makes me crave french fries and vanilla frosties.




and Merlin


I look like hell but it's the first picture of us together

About your dog(s): Caleb (will be 8! on Monday) is my scarey smart Lab. Thankfully he doesn't use that intelligence to get into trouble. He's always up for an adventure, no matter what it is- hiking, parades, shopping, festivals, visiting school. He doesn't care, as long as we're doing it together. He's definitely a Momma's Boy.

Interests: Besides dog training, I love to read. I used to do a lot of crafts, too, but somehow have gotten away from it.

Favorite music: Country, especially the old stuff from the 70s and earlier.

Favorite book: Convoy

Favorite quote: If I had to pick just one it would have to be "Dumb is good"

Random fact: I grew up on a small farm near Woodstock, NY.

Oops! Forgot a picture of Monkey Dog & me! Labor Day Weekend 2013 when we finally got our RA.

Don't mind my attire in this picture, it was taken after a long day of doing performance shows lol.

About your dog(s):
Cobain - golden boy, the favourite, the reliable one, heart dog. 8 year old male Border Collie.
Rigby - Nutjob, crazy quirky, typical "little sister" annoyance to Cobain. 5(ish) year old Kelpie mix.
Oz - geriatric beagle. Obsessed with playing fetch, and will play for longer than the herding dogs
Ruby SoHo - 1.5 year old little mutt, Border Jack maybe? We ended up with her because she was "too high energy," she sleeps most of the day.
Interests: Hiking, agility, reading, playing guitar
Favorite music: Metal, Rock, and Rockabilly
Favorite book: The Rising
Random fact: In high school I played an instrument called the "valve trombone" it's basically a giant trumpet with none of the fun of a trombone.

and trees that are grounded by their roots.' - Battle of Butte Creek, Kate Mann

Fun!

Nickname/Preferred name: Laura

Occupation: semiconductor engineer

Age: 30

About your dog(s): Watson is a 2 year old Welsh Springer. He's a doofus but he gets away with it because he's pretty. I finished his championship in May and we train in some other sports for fun.

Interests: Horses,(though I don't have the time/money to ride right now), dogs (of course), reading (mostly classics, 19th century Brit Lit and some fantasy). I'm interested in home decorating and gardening, though I mostly read blogs about them and don't actually do them. And I love to cook and drink wine and beer

Favorite music: classic rock, some modern rock and pop (whatever I hear on the radio and happen to like), classical

Favorite book: hmmm ... probably Lord of the Rings based on how many times I've re-read it

Favorite quote: No idea! I can't think of anything off the top of my head

Random fact: My first job out of college was in the food industry - I made goldfish and Milano cookies. Yum!


From vacation last month:

About your dog(s):
Cohen 4 year old Aussie. Love this dog. She was supposed to be a family dog, but through a series of unfortunate events she's mine now. She's very much my dog.


Megatron 8 year old Chihuahua. She was a rescue via my husband's family prior to our marriage. She's a good, easy dog, but too soft and fragile to be my type. She's very much my husband's dog.


Interests: Dog training. Video games. Hiking. I'm trying to branch out and get more into airsoft, exercise & motorcycles.

Favorite music: Folk more than anything else.

Favorite book: Probably God Bless You Mr. Rosewater by Vonnegut. Anything by Vonnegut really.

Favorite quote: I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

Random fact: One of my favourite things in the world is a really bitter, really cold IPA after a long day. Mmmm beer.

I don't really have many photos of myself. Here's one of me carrying Cohen off the field after a great run/failed gamble at the regional championships a few weeks back. She was a good dog.

About your dog(s):
Gunslinger's Wanted Dead or Alive JJR or The Outlaw is my 9 month old Black Lab pup and my first sport dog. He's a goofy, crazy, intense, sweetheart of a Lab and has pretty much stolen my heart in a way that no other dog has.


Takoda is my 4 year old Lab/Pit Bull/Whatever mix. She's a rescue and has numerous FA issues and is socially awkward, she's a great dog, and has such a good heart despite having so many fear issues. She's VERY much my boyfriend's dog and loves him to no ends.


Interests: Dogs, Art, TV, Reading, Hunting, Fishing, Outdoor living, Dock Diving

Favorite music: Whatever sounds good

Favorite book: The Harry Potter series <3

Favorite quote: "My Mama always said you've got to put the past behind you before you can move on." - Forrest Gump

Random fact: I have bad anxiety issues when I'm separated from Outlaw to the point that I'm training him to be my service dog, he makes life so much easier for me and helps me cope with the world.

And pictures of me:
