Profile: I've got two 4-footed children. KitKat a rat terrier and Balto a Kelpie mix. She is incredibly hard to photograph because if she is awake, she is in motion and I do mean Motion. Being a terrier, she is fast! Balto is cooperative about not moving around but he's so black -- fur, eyes, nose -- that he doesn't photograph well except in bright sunlight. They're both very smart, incredibly sweet and loving and 'attached at the hip' to each other. They love to play rough with each other, go for walk or car rides, and hang out with me while I work on the computer.

This is my Type B Rat Terrier, or as we're supposed to call them now, a Teddy Roosevelt Terrier. She was born in Sept 2005 to my best friends rattie. KitKat got her name because she acted more like a kitten than a puppy. She could literally climb my jeans using her claws when she was small. And her favorite place is on the highest spot in the room, wherever that is. KitKat is an extremely smart girl with a vocabulary of about 30 commands/words and was the easiest dog to housetrain I've ever met. It's horrible trying to take her picture as she is either in constant motion or asleep. You can see by the "tail blur" photo just what I mean -- her tail was wagging so fast she literally looks like there's a streak of white behind her. She loves riding in the car, playing rough with Daddy or her big brother Balto (the large black dog in the photos), tummy rubs and Mommy's lap.View Profile
Balto is a Kelpie mix that we adopted. He had been at the shelter for 11 months and had quite a severe case of institutionalization when we met him. He seemed to have no personality at all -- just very quiet and calm. But once we got him home and he realized he was staying, he developed quite a lively personality. He's incredibly smart and knows close to 30 commands. As my husband likes to say "Balto is the best dog we've ever owned."View Profile
