Lurker Revealed

Postby TheBowie » Sat Jul 19, 2008 6:28 pm

Hi all. I’ve been lurking for awhile and thought I should do a proper intro because I want to build a springpole and I know I’ll have questions. My name is Barbara and I’m, well, let’s just say I’m old enough to adopt most of you. :oops: I started out with amstaffs about 20 years ago (actually, I started out with labs, but that’s another forum). My first girl made it to 16 before time finally caught up with her a few years ago. I also had a male amstaff that succumbed to an auto-immune disease some years ago before he turned two. These both came from a breeder (well known and reputable) but I now have a 5 yo rescued pit bull boy named Edgar:

Edgar, bless his heart, is dumb as dirt! But there’s something to be said for that – he never questions anything I tell him and it never occurs to him to misbehave.
I did foster care with a local pit bull rescue for about a year but got reeeaaalllyy attached to a couple of them and decided to just make the leap and get another dog. Enter Olive Oyl, Edgar’s extremely smart 1 yo boston mix sister, also a rescue:

I also have a couple of cats, one that LOVES dogs. See?

The other cat doesn’t really like much of anything except her next meal.

I don’t really do much of anything with either dog. I tried agility with Edgar for about a year when he was still an adolescent but he was too goofy (and stupid) to concentrate on the task at hand (Me: Jump! Edgar: Woohoo, A-Frame! Me: Tunnel! Edgar: Woohoo, A-Frame!), so we took a break for awhile (like, 4 years…). Now we just go for hikes and chew on tennis balls (or he does anyway). I’m considering trying therapy with both since he’s settled down quite a bit and Olive is very soft with people.

Looking forward to being able to post occasionally (not often – I find life a little easier when I keep my mouth shut!) :)

Welcome to the board!
Lovely crew!

My name is Barbara and I’m, well, let’s just say I’m old enough to adopt most of you.


Not old enough to adopt me, unless, of course, you are insanely rich and don't mind an adoptive daughter who is your age, or close enough lol If you are YOUNGER than dirt and only moderately rich, we can still talk lol

Thanks everyone, although it almost sounds like Medagrl and Kingsgurl are propositioning me ;) What forum am I in again.... :)

And sorry about the big pictures...I hate when you have to scroll to read the posts. I'll do better next time.

:huh?: Heelllloooo?!? I see people who's intros came way after mine have been approved and I'm still waiting. Looks like a whole block of folks got overlooked. Hopefully the mods are working their way down the list. Course, now I'm at the top so...... :((

Apologies for the delay, each new member is approved manually and, unfortunately, sometimes a post or two gets lost in the shuffle.
