Waving Hello to Everyone
I was cordially invited to join Pet Talk by luvpets2002, here I am........
I'm just a real old gal born in Los Angeles but left many years ago for the country life and have spent the past few years in the Missouri Ozarks. Out in the boonies on a small hobby farm.
I have owned and raised also almost every type of domestic animal, from pet rats to Llamas and everything inbetween. I have calmed down and now only have 5 dogs......Jrt cross, GSD, Newfoundland and 2 Pem Welsh Corgis. Also, am owned by a Blue & Gold macaw and 2 cockatiels. The barnyard now only consists of 8 chickens. I have 4 grown children who all live in other states and 4 grandchildren.
I make an sell dog/cat pads and a few other sewn items that are pet related and spend the rest of my time working in the yards and relaxing.
Not too exciting, but that about covers it.:)
Glad to meet everyone!
Hello Carole and welcome to PT.
You can see my pets in the siggy below. I was raised out in the country with lots of animals. I do miss that life every now and then.
Well in case luvpets2002 didn't tell you, we :love: pictures here. So we'd love to see your animals, even the chickens! :)
Have fun browsing this site and if you didn't already know it is VERY addicting. :D
:) Hi Carole I see you made it.. Welcome to Pet Talk & enjoy all the talks & pics.. One thing about it we all love our babies.. Hope you enjoy it here & feel welcome.. Oh yes alot of us here is country.. Like they say you can take a person out of the country but can never take the country out of a person..
Hello and Welcome to PT, Carole!
I'm glad to see another bird owner on the forum, I guess you can say I am a bit of a bird enthusiast. :)
I don't know what part of the ozarks you are in, but Missouri is a beautiful place(especially in the Fall). I live on the Arkansas-Missouri border, and feel blessed to be located where I am.
I hope you have a nice stay.
Hello and welcome, Imadognut! I hope you'll be very happy here!
"A real old gal???" Shh, don't tell! This is the Internet, he hee..
Hi there and welcome! I'm Sandie. I live in RI with my flock of bichons (4) and clowder of cats (11). All 15 are rescue pets, none from pet stores, or breeders. A few foundlings among the cats. The bichons are from either Small Paws Rescue, or from the local city pound -- Lacey, age 6. The ones from SPR are Sugar, 11 years old, Marlin, 9 years, and Ozzy who is "at least 15." two years ago, I only had 5 cats, so the family grew rather rapidly!
Yes as someone else has mentioned, we LOVE photos, so do please rev up that camera and start showing off your dear feather and fur kids!
(Yes, you CAN count, one cat has not been added to my siggy yet.)
Hi Oyster, we might be pretty close to each other. I am not far from the MO/AR border and my husband still has a home in the Harrison, AR area are you near there?
The parrots are very special that's for sure, what kind do you have?
:):eek: OMG you have not seen nothing yet till you see this lady's Pet Bed/Mats.. They are Awesome.. I have personaly bought several & am buying lots more..
I don't know if this will work, but I have uploaded a pic of Bingo my blue & gold macaw. He is 12 years old and I've had him since he was 8 months just weaned.........
Welcome to Pet Talk. :D I must admit that a couple of times while looking quickly I read your screen name as Imadoughnut. Which I like too. :D:o Hope you like it here at Pet Talk. I have two dogs: Ginger (an American Eskimo mix) and Taz (a chihuahua mix), both rescued pups. Look forward to seeing pics of your fur and feathered family.
Sandy, I didn't realize that Lacey was the one from the shelter, and I also didn't realize that she was the youngest. No wonder she is so spunky, I love it.
ETA: Wow, those mats are really nice!
I have been to Harrison a time or two, but I live about 3 hours (just about) directly east. I'm closer to the boothill of MO. I do a ton of traveling throughout the area, though, as all of my family is in MO.

:oBlushing here, but thank you so much luvpets2002!!! Your next batch will be on the way to you tomorrow, btw ;)
As they say word of mouth will go along way. Very grateful!
Welcome to Pet Talk, with that gang, sounds like you'll fit right in here!
Oyster.........I am closer to you than Harrison. I live just north of Gainesville which is about in the middle of the MO/AR border area.
My tiels are both boys and they are so entertaining we just crack up at them a million times a day. Their names are Flippy and Twisty..........
:eek: Wow Carole Bingo is So Adorable & BreathTaken with Beauty.. Cant wait to see your other babies..
