Default Hi from Rhode Island

Hi Everyone!

I'm new and just registered today. My name is Cris and I have a 3 year old Rottweiler boy named Lars. He and I work and compete in AKC/NADAC agility, AKC/UKC obedience and AKC/UKC/APDT rally. We also do therapy dog work at our local library every other week doing TDI's Tail Waggin' Tudor stuff. Yeah, we're kind of busy between training, trialing, and therapy dog work. Let's see...I'm a member of the American Rottweiler Club (ARC) and the Colonial Rottweiler Club (CRC) and I teach CGC and Rally Obedience classes where we train. I guess that's my dog resume! ROFL

I belong to some other dog message boards and my alias is MrsBoats on them. I may be someone you guys are familiar with. I'm kind of in the middle of reinventing myself so I decided a screen name change was sort of appropriate. When I'm not off doing stuff with Lars, I'm a landscape designer as my full time job. For a hobby that has laid quiet for a couple of years, I'm really into horse and dog art. Somethings have lead me to realize the art is what I really am supposed to be doing with myself and it's my life's work. So, with the economy being as it is and the landscape design world is a little more quiet that usual, I relishing in my artsy side and am making a real effort to "do something" with the art. So...that's where "equusartist" comes from. It's more suiting to me now especially since my husband is retired from the Coast Guard. LOL

Anyway...dogs are one of my biggest passions and I really, really look forward to meeting and discussing all things dogs with you all!!

Welcome to the forum!!! I am sure you will love it here. Please check out our art thread. Please post some of your work there. Please post some pictures of your boy Lairs. We love pictures and videos. For me, I LOVE agility! I can't get enough videos. None of my dogs are into that, but wow, what an art! Again, welcome!

Thanks for the warm welcome!!! I'll be sure to post pics of Mr. Lars flying through the air. I'll also be sure to share my art with you guys too! I'm working on a portrait of Lars when he was about 5 weeks old.

I'm glad there are rottie fans over here!!

We all love all dogs. Most of us do not believe the hype of bully breeds. We look forward to your posts!

Here's a pic of Mr. Lars and I in the mud...a split second before we're off and running again. As you can see....he's very serious about his agility.
