Hi everyone... a reintroduction!
« on: February 22, 2008, 06:29:55 am »
Hi, I have actually been a member for a really long time but I have been missing in action for a while! I know there are still a bunch of my old pals around here! ;)

But for anyone who never "knew" me, hehe, my name is Rebekah and I am a lover of big paws (and small ones too). A lot has happened at my house since I was on the board last, and my line-up has changed, but my current household consists of a bunch of rescues:

Zoot, a pointer mix
Mokey, a lab/Pyrenees mix
Turkey, a 3 legged husky mix
Connor, a blue Great Dane
Patrick, a Scottish Deerhound mix
and I think I have 9 or 10 cats.
 ;D

I'll work on getting some pics together. I haven't had a nice camera for a while but I'll see what I can muster. The drawing in my avatar is a portrait I did of my Great Dane.
I hope everyone is doing well and I can't wait to catch up with old friends! Looks like everyone has some new dogs and babies too!!!! YAY!!!

Where's Nigel?

 :'( :'( :'(
Nigel is no longer with me. He crossed the bridge a few weeks ago. It's very hard for me to talk about. I guess I knew it would come up, though. I made the very difficult decision to have Nigel euthanized. His aggression reached a very dangerous level and at the advice of professionals, I made that choice. I definitely haven't come to terms with it yet. I am just trying to focus on the dogs who are still with me and be thankful for them.

As for Miss Turkey, yep, she had to have that leg amputated finally! She is a CHAMPION on three legs. I am really glad for her, she is so much more free now. The leg that had broken just never healed quite right and was more of a hindrance than anything.
And Patrick is my newest pal! I really need to find a picture of him cause he is a real cutie pie!!!! You guys haven't seen hiom for sure. Lemme dig up some pics...

Wow it's great to "see" you guys! Somehow I still don't have any dog people as friends in my real life so there is no one to talk to who actually understands what these critters mean to me.

I found a pic of Turkey that I took with my cell phone camera. ;D

Hey, welcome back!  I'm so sorry about Nigel.  That must have been such a tough decision for you.  :'(  ((hugs))

Turkey looks very smiley and happy in that picture.  I'm glad that she's doing so well on all 3's.   ;)  ;D  I love Patrick's white toes, what a sweetie.  Congrats on adopting him.  How did he find you?

Oh, Rebekah. I'm sorry that I'm the A-hole that just up and asked about him. But, I'm more sorry that you had to go through that. Its a very difficult decision, and I know how it feels. :(

Well, Patrick is just too cute for words, and Turkey?! OMG! How funny is she with three legs?! She looks like she's pleased about it!!! hahahha!

Its great to see you back, Rebekah. Really. Jenn and I have asked one another about you lotsa times.

Thanks for the warm welcome back, you guys. It's really amazing to sign on to the board and see so many familiar people. It reminds me of where I was a few years ago when I first joined this forum! So many of the same folks are still around, it's amazing!
i was reading through some posts last night trying to play catch up... can't wait to read more! ;D

And I'll post new pics soon. I'll get out in the yard with my camera. Maybe for the first time ever I can actually get a group shot with everyone in it at one time!!! :D

WOO-HOO welcome back!!!

Turkey looks so grown up now, and no worse for wear!!! 

I'm so sorry to hear about Nigel, but it sounds like you made the right decision.  Doesn't make it any easier though.
God placed me on this earth to accomplish certain tasks...I'm so far behind I'll never die!!
