Hi Ange.Welcome to the DP,my name is Richard. I have spent the last 35 years or so with mostly Siberian Huskkies.My OH had Keeshonden and one GSD....We are dogless at the moment since my last husky went off to the Rainbow Brigge without me last week..Quite a change from the 20 or so dogs we had when we were showing..
I used to go to PA for the Pittsburg shows each year,not too long a trip ( I live in SW Ohio near Springfield )
Dante is really cute he looks like a real sweetie...My grandson grew up with a wonderful rescue,a Chow, Golden Retriever mix.He learned to walk holding on to her...Today he is a 6 footer in his second year of high school and a cadet on the local fire department..he has 2 dogs and many cats...And yes everyone gets along together..
I think you are going to enjoy this site,we are here to help and add support for doggie folks in particular and animal lovers in general... so enjoy.
