"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square hole. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. "

About your dog(s): Murphy - Bernese Mtn Dog X Basset. Got him from the shelter 4 years ago and never ever regretted it, even though he peed on everything and ran away at every opportunity for the first six months. Lol.
Mu - Corgi X Heeler mix. Got her as a pup 2 years ago from an oops litter. I thought she was a horribly cute mistake until she hit about 8 months. She's the reason I joined Chaz and the reason I got into training. She's my bitchy dog. <3
Tipper - Corgi X Heeler mix. Rescued from Kansas last September, she's about 2 years old. She's goofy and adorable and crazy and fun.
Interests: Dogs! Of course. Other than that, reading, knitting, crocheting, sewing, gaming and various other nerdy pursuits.

Favorite book: I can't pick one. Top favs are probably Hitchhiker's Guide, The Sevenwaters Trilogy, Dragonlance series, anything by Tamora Pierce and lots of others I can't think of right now. My new favorite is the Percy Jackson books.

I currently have my first foster dog, Tom, a 2 year old pit bull (mix?). He's a big goofball I've had for 2 months, and I'm trying not to get attached.
