Profile: I am a Sign Technician for Irving, TX Parks Department.

I also make pottery, both wheel-thrown and hand-built. I have lost more than 110 lbs in the last five years and I'm loving life on my bitty spot in the country.

Hannah is a Rotti-X and was rescued at six months. She spent her first months on the street, so she is bit a short/light for a Rotti. She loves to be cheeky and comments on everything I tell her by growling like Cujo. She only mouths off about stuff, though, because her manners are impeccable. I don't know what she is crossed with... it must be 'good dog'. Nanners is my ROTTEN sweetie. The Vet said she was born in March and since she was adopted by a "crazy Irish lady", I gave her the 17th as her birthday.View Profile
***********3/27/08~7/14/08************ In June/July 2008, I worked for the Animal Shelter for six weeks while they had a staffing shortage. Isabeau was the only "someone" I wanted to bring home in that entire time. I had fallen into, and in love with those gorgeous eyes. She was three months old when I brought her home. She had, what the Vet thought was an URI (puppy cold, basically). It turned out to be distemper. On July 14, 2008, after just two weeks with the "bitty girl with the pretty eyes", I had to put her down. Sleep sweet, precious. Love, Mommie and your brothers and sisters.View Profile
Barucha is my second Aussie. Her sis was Cardigan, an Aussie-X, who padded softly by me from 1987-2003. Barucha means "blessed/blessing" in Hebrew and she is that. She delights me everyday by 'wuffling' with a baby-bunny slipper-in her mouth. She also takes a baby to nap on the bed and makes 'puppy bread' with her feet just like a kitty would do or a pup on its mommie's tummy. She also does this, when she lays across my tummy, at bedtime. She has been known to race around the yard with baby in mouth and then stop dead to "hurry", our word for tinkle. If she drops the baby, I say "go get your baby" and another race begins to fetch that wayward toy. She loves ice cubes and always comes when she hears the freezer door open. She will show her tummy on command, as will her brother and sister. And the garden hose is a wonderful moving toy that must be turned on just for her. Forget that the tomatoes or peppers need watering. She's my sweet BaaLou, Pups, Sweeters, Loukins, Pupkins and Fuzzbutt. I hope I have her around to love as long as Cardigan (or longer).View Profile
****6/25/98 - 2/04/11******* This was my big "Smiler" red Doberguy. I rescued him from a BYB who bred the mom at EIGHT yrs for the first time, just before they had her spayed. His brother, Zackary, who was unfortunately PTS in Oct/2009, was owned by my BFF of nearly 40 yrs and lived in Kaufman, TX. Gunther was one of the loves in my life. He always smiled for his Mommie and got an 'earcurl' when he was excited to see me or the few people he adored. He was the most gentle of souls, not even close to being the Dober villain. He protected the backyard, along with his two sissies, but if you came to the front door, and Mommie let you in, he fought over who got the first tummy rub. He loved our kitties and gave them big, slobbery, puppy kisses all the time. They loved him right back for it. He was my sweet Buddyboyo! My main man, and I miss him so.View Profile
