View Full Version : Hi! I'm new!

10-09-2004, 12:31 PM

I'm new here! I have read posts on this website for about 2 years before I got up the nerve to join. I have a German Shorthaired Pointer whose name is Heidi, and she is almost two years old. Her birthday is December 28. As of this typing she is out pheasant hunting with my dad and brother. She LOVES to hunt! I am going to be entering her in a conformation show in Canada in November, and right now I am in agility with her. Its a lot of fun. She just loves the treats! :D Shes my baby and my best friend. I love her to death!

Well I think that sums it up. Oh yeah, this is my first dog, ever! I wanted a fluffy dog but my dad wanted a hunting dog, so I settled for a GSP, and I couldn't be happier. :) Shes the greatest!

Oh yeah, and one of the reasons that I didn't join earlier was cause I am VERY paranoid about Internet predators. So yeah. Well I think thats all!

Hi Miranda Rae! Welcome to Pet Talk!

My name is Julie, and I'm owned by the two pups you see in my signature, at the end of my post. Molly is a three year old, female, Sable and White Rough Collie, and Daisy is a two year old, female, Golden Retriever. I also have a Pied Cockatiel named Piper, a Hamster named Neko, two Cats named Angel and Dillian, and six Desert Tortoises! A regular zoo. ;)

Do you have any pictures of Heidi? She sounds like a doll! It's great you're involved in soo many things with her!

Welcome to Pet Talk! My name is Laura and I am owned my 2 cats, 2 rats, and 2 rabbits. I go hunting also! There is a Rat Terrier that goes duck hunting with us, and could probably out retrieve a Labrador if he so desired- it is hilarious when he brings back a duck almost bigger than him! He sure is a toughie!

Post pictures of your GSD, ASAP- we love pictures on Pet Talk! :D

Thanks for the friendly welcome! I don't want to be a pain, but could someone tell me how to put a picture of Heidi up here? Thanks!

10-09-2004, 01:17 PM
You have to load your photo onto an image server -- many of us use www.photobucket.com

Once you've done that. get the url of the photo [right click on it, properties] then use the IMG code and paste the URL in between the image code.

It'd look something like this, without the spaces..

Hi Miranda Rae!

Welcome to Pet Talk. :D

Welcome to Pet Talk!

Another way to post pictures is to "attach" them - they show up as just a link, but people can click on it and see the picture. It's at the bottom of the box in the window where you type your post, says "attach file." It is best if it's a jpg file, but other types work, too - there's a list right noext to the "Attach file" button.

10-09-2004, 01:44 PM
Yup! She's a cutie, all right! Is she winking at the camera?

Oh, and welcome to Pet Talk, I'm one of the moderators, and my current pet is Miss Hoppy - that's her as my avatar!

10-09-2004, 01:45 PM
Thanks! Yeah shes cute, and thats only her head! :) I didn't make her wink or anything. When i got the pictures back she was winking. I thought it was cute! Miranda Rae

Ah I see. PT's a pretty safe site though, and as long as you don't give too much personal information, you should be alright.


10-09-2004, 01:57 PM
Yes, I have finally figured out that most of the people on this site are pretty harmless. :)

Your Heidi is a cutie. I really like GSP's. Our dog trainer has 4 of them and I quickly fell in love with her gang. Great dogs! Hope we will get to see more of Heidi and hear some stories about her and you.

Robin :)
