Hi everyone! I realized that I had never gotten around to introducing myself. I've always thought message boards feel so strange, because you spend so much time talking to someone, but never really know who they are. So here is a little about me: I've lived in Washington my whole life, except for two months in Texas. I'm from a small town of 60 thousand, which is about 3 hours from Seattle. I live on 5 acres, and have tons of animals including around 50 chickens. I have 94 chicks arriving in a few days and I'm really exited! My chickens are my pets, but my dogs are my children, so here are a few pics of me with my dogs. Sorry I have no pics of me with my chickens, because I can't find anyone who wants to go all the way out to my chicken coop with me. Hope you enjoy! This is me with Muggs the Pug and Chubby, also known as Shorty the Corgi. Muggs died tragically right before Christmas of 05. This is my new Pug, Luke. This is the first time I ever saw him at the Seattle airport, in January of 06. This is another pic of me with Luke. This is my family on Christmas day of 06. And this is Chubby and Luke on Christmas Eve of 06.
