Introducing Craig! and a little reintro for myself :)
« on: December 20, 2008, 08:36:58 am »
Hey all! I haven't been on BPO in a couple years, and I have a new friend I'd like everyone to meet. This is Craig! Mr. Craig was sprung from the Humane Society 3 weeks ago today. Poor guy had been locked up for over 3 months because he was deemed "too old, and too big"(I live in chihuahua-land).
I do believe I got the best doggie in the whole shelter! Craig is loveable, very gentle and kind-hearted.
He comes to work with me at the gallery and has become a tour guide for all the visitors.
And for some reason I can't post pics so all I have for now is the avatar photo.
Also, I cannot figure out how to make a profile for Craig...and registration isn't working. Help!

Oh, and I'm Meredith.  ;D  My old avatar name was Teamshredit, but unfortunately Lucas and Daisy are no longer in my life  :'((they are doing very well at my ex's house!)

Can anyone tell me how to make a page for Craig? I don't see anything on the UserTools list.

Hello! Yay I'm remembered!  ;D
Too bad about the paw prints...that was a cute feature. Thank you for that info btw.

Yes, it's been tough without teamshredit..t hey actually live across the street from my complex(weird huh?) I won't visit them anymore though...it's too confusing for Lucas(and breaks my heart).

Craig's been very good to me. I'm sure one day he can go play with them.  :)

Hello and welcome back!
Craig looks like a doll, he has a very sweet face.  What is he a mix of?  Or what did the shelter tell you.........lo l.

Thank you!
Haha! The shelter told me he's a lab/shepherd. I believe the lab part, but he's very tall. He has the body type and personality traits of a Rhodesian but no ridge. He's 85 lbs and is 26" at the shoulders.
We call him Mr. Squish Face because he has so much extra skin! All over his body...it's crazy.

As soon as I figure out how to post more pics I will.

Craig is a cute little man.  It's good you found a new friend.  It's hard to split from the dogs in a divorce.  I had to leave Lady with my ex last year and I still miss her a year and a half later.  I think about her a lot, but at least I have my Grace.  If I had to walk away from both of them, I would probably have lost it.  It's weird how the pups keep us sane and grounded. 

As for posting pics...maybe you're having trouble because you need to resize your pictures??  I know a lot of people who haven't posted her in a while forget about the size limit on attachments to posts.  Hit the "additional options" under the post box you type in and a few boxes will pop up.  browse for the pics you want to post, but make sure you resize them to be under 400 KB.  then hit post.  Good luck.

Omg I was looking right at the "browse" button and nothing registered. lol

Here is Mr.SquishFace. The pics are the first day or two with Craig and he looks a little groggy from painkillers.
Oh, and my room isn't always this trashed...we were about to move and everything was in disarray.  :)
