Default New here not new to dogs

I just wanted to introduce me and my pack.....
I live with seven retrievers, goldens and flat coated retrievers who we show and compete with. I am a University professor of sociology and a stained glass artist.... We have fed a raw diet for over 8 years and believe in raising our dogs as naturally as possible.

We also live with two ragdoll cats Walter and Janet and an Umbrella cockatoo named Bhakti , its amazing how an 18 inch tall bird can rule the roost and keep everyone including the humans in line

The dogs are
Meghan, a flat coat, Am. Can. Ch. with an obedience title. She is my oldest girl at 8.5 and a silly silly thing..... She is the mother of Shalva

Connor, Golden Ret, Ch. with an obedience title. He is the oldest boy and my husbands best friend.... he is a typical needy golden retriever and the sun rises and sets on this dog for my husband.....

Cuinn, Flat coat, Am. Can. Ch. and he has epilepsy so unfortunately I have lots of experience wtih seizure active dogs.... medications and the issues that come from epilepsy.....

Kaelyn , Golden, Ch. She is an English type dog and very light in color. she is the mother of Emmett and we are currently waiting to see if she is pregnant again. We will know that for sure next week (and I am happy to answer any and all questions about my breeding program)

Shalva, flat coat, Ch. and she needs 3 points for her canadian Ch. she is a driven driven dog and quite intense. She is the daughter of Meghan and the mother of Meir .....

Meir, Flat coat, he hasn't been shown yet as he is a big honkin geek.... he is also a brat and a bit obnoxious to hte other dogs, he totally knows what buttons to push but I just adore him.... He is the son of Shalva and grandson of Meghan

Emmett, Golden, he was shown at the national and the judge for the english match said he was spectacular.... I am very proud of him... we will start showing him this coming spring.... he is very silly and is the best dog in the house at amusing hiimself. He is the son of Kaelyn.....

So that is the dogs..... this is the rough copy of a shot I had done at a photographers.... but at least it shows all the kids, keep in mind that I lightened it up for you to be able to see.

Shalva, Meghan, Connor, Emmett

Hi Shalva

Welcome to Dogforum. Hope you enjoy your stay.

What a beautiful picture - it reminds me of some of the picture we see in the Grand Houses of our Whiskey Distilleries in Scotland.

Looking forward to your posts and further pictures.
