Default We are new members, come and say Hi!

Hi,

Despite the user name we are Andrea and Mike, a married couple from Manchester UK. We have a teenage son, 3 cats (all rescues) and 2 dogs.

Our dogs are Jasper, a male Border Collie X rescue we re-homed in 2001. He is approx 13 to 15 years old (going from estimates from various vets and self proclaimed experts!). He is in good health although slowing down with old age, and going a bit grey :-)

Loki is the newest member of the family, and boy do we know we have got him. He is a Siberian Husky / English Mastiff X so is a little unusual (apart from the others in his litter, we've never heard of this mixture before) and is now nearly 6 months old. We got him when he was 9 weeks old from a family who were struggling with him after having him only 3 weeks. He is lots of fun and has helped to rejuvenate Jasper!

Take a look at our photo album at http://www.dogforum.org/album.php?albumid=169

We are by no means experts, but are looking forward to reading advice when we run into any problems, and hopefully sharing our experiences to help others.

Andrea and Mike (and Loki and Jasper) (and Poppy, Chester and Simba - the cats).
