Profile: My husband Jeremy and I have two lovely dog children, Bijia and Fliggle. Bijia is a 15 year old Stumpy Tailed Australian Cattle Dog and Fliggle is a 5 month old Toy Poodle. My other dog family members include my sister Kaitlin's Toy Poodle, Chu-Chu and my Granddad's Standard Poodle, Jules. I love animals of all sorts, and also have two cats at home, Tiger and Robot. If I could, I would have a whole herd of cats and dogs, and my husband and I have a dream of one day having a small farm with horses, goats, chickens, dogs and cats. I just recently graduated from the University of South Florida with my MFA in printmaking and Painting. I am an adjunct art professor at USF and teach courses in art foundations. I love painting and printmaking, and spend my free time (when not playing with my dogs!) doing both.

Hi! My name is Bijia and I am a Stumpy Tailed Australian Cattle Dog! I love my mom, Lauren and my dad Jeremy! I am a rescue from Orlando, FL. When I was found, I had a piece of rope that had been tied around my neck so tightly that it grew into the skin, and had to be surgically removed. Even though I was neglected and treated so badly by humans when I was younger, I am the sweetest dog and love to meet new people and dogs! I am very good natured and well behaved, and I love doing obedience and tricks for my mom. I am so trustworthy that I do not need to be on a leash, and follow my mom everywhere! When she was in college, I used to walk to campus with her and go to classes! Everyone loved me so much that I was allowed into the buildings, and would sit at my mom's feet during the lectures. I am about 15 years old now, but my mom can't be too sure because the shelter I was rescued from wasn't quite sure how old I was. My first owner was my mom's aunt Becky who loved me just as much as my mom, but then had to give me to her because of a new living situation. I love going for walks and car rides, and I LOVE chewing on rawhides! I like to sleep a lot and I snore really loudly! I love to relax with my back legs sticking out behind me like in my profile picture. My I love baths and grooming and massages, but my absolute favorite thing is greeting my mom when she gets home because I missed her so much! I am the friendliest dog ever, and am loved very much! My mom is even getting a tattoo of a portrait of me, the same picture that is my profile pic!View Profile
Hi! My name is Fliggle, and I am a 5 month old Toy Poodle puppy! I live in Tampa, FL with my mom and dad, Lauren and Jeremy. I also have a big sister named Bijia who is a 15 year old Australian Cattle dog. You might notice my long tail and think to yourself, "Gee, I thought Poodles had short tails with a poof on top." Well, all types of Poodles are born with long tails like labs and dalmatians. Usually, at 3 days old, puppies have their tails cruelly cropped to two thirds their natural length. This cropping is for no other purpose except aesthetic, and is unfair to the puppy! Dogs use their tails as a large part of communication, and docking/cropping tails is not needed! My breeder is very kind and smart, and chose not to crop me or my relatives' tails. Man, am I glad about that! You know, America is one of the only countries that still legally allows this type of alteration on animals, along with ear cropping and declawing cats. Most countries in Europe have outlawed this behavior! Please, think before you crop!!! Anyway... I have a beautiful natural long tail, and I wave it free and long like a flag! My name is Fliggle because that means "little chicken wing" in Yiddish. I am such a sweet little girl and I love meeting new people and dogs. I like to go on walks and for car rides, and I love learning new tricks. I have a pretty pink collar with diamonds on it that my mom picked out, but my dad thinks it looks silly! My family loves me so much and I love to go everywhere with them in a little doggy tote bag!View Profile
Hi, I'm Chu-Chu! My mom is DoABarrelRoll's sister Kaitlin. I am a 6 month old Toy Poodle, and I am a sweet friendly guy! I have a slight underbite, but this makes me so cute and gives an adorable character! I am a genius! I learn tricks so fast, and I charm everyone I meet. My cousin Fliggle is by best friend, and we love to play together all the time! I am a sweet boy, and love a nice warm friendly lap to sit in.View Profile
Hi, I'm Jules the Standard Poodle. I am 7 months old and already weigh 75lbs! I belong to DoABarrelRoll's Granddad, and I am learning to be a dog for the deaf. My dad is going deaf, so I will be there to help him when the phone rings, or there is someone at the door, or if he needs an extra helping paw. I am a very friendly boy; I think I am a toy poodle because I always want to get in your lap. I am such a beautiful boy that DoABarrelRoll thinks I look like David Bowie from the 70's. I am a rock star!!!View Profile
