Default Hello everyone!

Hey fellow dog-lovers! I just joined the site.

I have two dogs, a year-old spayed female border collie/husky named Rio, and a year-old spayed female border collie/hound type mix named Kye.

I also have two four month old kittens who are sisters, a calico DMH named Deia (pronounced Deeya) and a torbi DSH named Rya.

Rio came to me when she was 7 months old, her first owners kept her locked in her crate full of her waste, then they rehomed her with a girl who's boyfriend beat her for getting in the garbage, and messing in the house, you know, things a puppy does before it's taught otherwise. So needless to say she was a total mess when she came to me in April, but she's come a long ways. She's scared of leashes and towels, she's a constant job but a constant joy as well, I couldn't imagine not having her.

Kye, she was tossed out of a moving vehicle in November last year, she was 10 weeks when she came to the shelter. She had soft tissue damage and a sprain in her left hind leg joint, but she healed up great and I adopted her at 13 weeks.

Pictures!

I'll probably be around lots

Hi K&R and

I'll spare you what I have to say about Kye and Rios' previous owners. They're lucky to have you and I'm glad you joined!

Don't worry about the picture size, the forum will resize it automatically for whoever is viewing it.

Hey, I like that little leaf writing "welcome!". Very cute

Thanks for the warm welcomes, I can't wait to start exploring the site and seeing where I can help others...I'm part of another online forum as well, but I googled Canadian pet forums and came up with this. Any fellow Albertans?

I think I'm the one who's lucky to have them lol, they've taught me alot about behaviour and about myself too; I love them to pieces and I can't imagine life without them, it wouldn't even be an option! The kitties too, my little brats, but they're my baby babies; Kye and Rio are growing up a bit, which is nice but I know one day I'll miss their silly puppy-ness.

Trust me, their former owners were idiots. I don't know why Kye was tossed out the door like that, probably was a leftover of some litter that someone didn't want to deal with...Oh, and I'll say right now, I'm pretty (very) anti-breeding and pro spay/neuter, I try my best to be tactful but I saw first hand what happens to little unwanted puppies during my time at the shelter, and it's so sad and gets me so upset when people breed indiscriminately! I have no problem with reputable breeders breeding the best of the best, for the betterment of the breed itself.

Anyways, enough rambling, exploring time!

Hello & welcome to df. Your 2 dogs are gorgeous. Gotta love anything with bc in it. They are lucky you came along. Three years ago my son rescued a 3 w/o kitten tossed out of a plastic bag on the edge of a canal. She's such a lovely cat I still can't believe she was disposed of so easily.
