Smile Hello from Texas

Hiyas! I'm Amy from Texas and while I'm new to the site I've been around dogs my whole life. For a few years I wasn't able to keep a dog with me, instead I had to content myself with loving on my folks Lhasa and my friend's Sheltie. Then five years ago I was blessed with a beautiful Sheltie of my own which we named Bellatrix. Now we're bringing a new puppy into our lives named Albus and I'm so excited that I can't wait!

I've gone crazy buying him everything I could think of, tonight in fact I'm going to buy more toys so that Bella doesn't have to share her special stuffed animals. Albus comes home tomorrow morning from a rescue here in Texas and he's a very special puppy, my first Pyr!

I'll post pictures once I figure out how and get them taken after he's groomed at the daycare. =) I also have two evil cats, Tabbi and Bo. They are cats and I do not care for cats however my child prefers them so we gave them both a home.

I'm also a strong advocate for the benefits of Doggie Daycare. I love the center I use and the people are wonderful!

Hello Amy, welcome! Looking forward to hearing more about Bella and Alba (and the cats too!) and hopefully seeing pictures of all of them :-)

Thank you!!! I'll have lots of pics soon, I have a couple from the rescue right now on my laptop but I'm not very good at posting those things... I'll have to get my kid sister to work on it, I used to get my exhusband to do it for me but that's just downright wierd!

I'll have to convince the cats to pose for me, they run whenever I whip out the camera; Bo bites first then flees... Sometimes I think he hates me, others I think he's just got a bad personality problem.

Welcome to the forum. A bit of a Harry Potter fan? Got to laugh, I'm also nuts about the books, the movies are pretty good, but nothing compared to the books, and when I was looking for another standard poodle, a black male, I had the name Sirius, as in Sirius Black, picked out. Instead I ended up with my Chewie, long story, but sure a far cry from my beloved black standards and sure not a Sirius, although I do wish now that I had called him Remus.

I'd love to see pics of your kids. If you have or can get a digi camera, start a photobucket account. It's free and a great place to put pics you want to show on the web. After you have downloaded your pics, just use the img code, copy and paste it right into your post. The pic will then show right up on the post.

Again, WELCOME TO THE FORUM. You'll find many sheltie lover here to talk to and even more just plain dog lovers.
