    Introduction

    I am new to this forum and LOVE IT! I love how the catagories are seperated and learning how to do pictures and all. I am having soooooo much fun its almost addictive.. lol..
    Anyway about me: I started training dogs at a young age, and started training and showing German Shepherds by the time I was 20 . Doing a combination of obedience, police trained dogs and of course- confirmation.. I spend 20 years in the breed, but always admired the Borzoi, and finally got my first 18 years ago. Now I have 4- 2 showing, one retired, and one rescue.
    This forum is great. It doesnt jack pot dogs into one forum and I love the seperate subjects. I am still learning the ropes, but already hooked...
    I retired early at age 46 from the post office as a Supervisor, and I dont know who said retirement would be quiet.. Honestly, I think I am busier now than I was when I was working..
    I have a website www.beckonridgeborzoi.com . And thank you for all your wonderful responses..

    TELLLLLLLLLLL ME ABOUT IT! and I love the features too.. Like its easier to load a photo from your computer without using a outside source, and alllllllll of you guys seem knowledgeable and there are breeders and showers on this forum, people that have trained dogs also as well as myself, and HOW we can put some information about ourselves but how much we want, and and.. POOF- ADDICTIVE!!!

    A Warm welcome... to major addiction! I for one, don't want to be cured!
    Your dogs are absolutely gorgeous! I've been lucky enough to meet some Borzois, rare where I live, I think, and I'm so taken by their demeanor and elegance and beautiful coat!
    Thanks for joining our family! I hope you love it here!

    Thank you! Shepherds were my first love. I just think they are great!
    BTW- you are right- designer dogs can be adopted at your local shelter!

    Welcome to Pet Talk! It's full of lots of learning experiences and tons of fun on the way My name is Makayla and I own... or I am rather owned by 21 beloved pets. Thank you for joining us and I'm glad you are already addicted!
    Beautiful Zois! Wow they are just gorgeous! Maybe you could go to PhotoBucket or Zoto and register, then upload some of your photos there so you can post them on PT. It's really easy and once you upload a picture just copy to URL that has the words [img] in front of it and then paste it on thread... and there we go
    I hope to see you around!!

    I love love me, love my dog. I have a sign at my front door that states with a black and white of a borzoi- " This house is maintained for the comfort and security of my dogs.... ( picture) If you can not accept that, you can not accept us- so GO AWAY"...
