    Not exactly new to Raw but new here :)

    Post  Chrissy on Thu Apr 09, 2009 1:15 am

    [b][i]Hello everyone,
    I have been feeding raw for about 9 yrs now. I was scared like everyone else is when they start but of course it has gotten easier and easier thru the years. I have 2 German Shepherds and 2 Miniature Pinschers and all eat raw. I also have a litter of 9 gsd's who will be starting raw in a couple weeks.
    Even tho I have been feeding raw for so long I still learn new things all the time. I'm really excited that Alex introduced me to this forum and can't wait to get to know you all. I love you

    My black girl is actually leaving for canada in august to go stay with her breeder for awhile and show up there. I am gonna miss her a bunch but I know she will be in good hands. I thought about doing sch with Kiele but I was a bad mom and just never had the time. I'm a groomer so I don't get much in the way of extra time out of the house. When we bought Dalhia the plan was to show her in the states but she is alittle to doggy and no angulation to speak of. which is fine by me and would be fine in the ring but for any chance of finishing she would have to go out with a handler. So when she comes back from canada thats probably what we will do. She will be bred when she is up in canada so hopefully that will help her mature and we will be set to go. I did show miniature pinschers for a few years and the 2 that I have now are my champions. Nikki is my avatar and when I retired him he was #12 in the country. But I am at fault for him not going further. I burned him out and he started snubbing judges and just kinda lost his flare in the ring. So instead of making it worse we pulled him. My little girl is the one who would of made the perfect special but she is on the small side and her attitude just wasn't enough for her to compete with the big boys. Its hard enough to special a girl but if she was just a bit bigger ... Well sorry this was so long . When I start talking about my dogs its so hard to stop myself lol

    LOL Kelly .... I know it was weird to say Alex. He always calls you kelly when talking about you so thats how I know you. Don't worry if you slip My hubby called me Flirt for like 3 months before he finally started call me Chrissy. When he did I just giggled and went with it. Thank You for the complement on my kids ! I have to agree with you hehe....I love your black kitties !!! They are so pretty and Betty .....she is adorable. I told Alex the other day that my daughter wants to steal her. I love my spoiled little dogs !! I grew up with labs and then when I moved out I got shepherds and never had the desire to ever own a little dog but my daughter talked me into a min pin and that was it for me. I'll never be without one. Now she wants a pug lol. Ohwell we'll see. Thanks for the welcome and I'm gonna have to talk Alex into making me a cute sig for here hehe.

    Where in Canada is she going?! Maybe we could visit. Wink

    Betty is a show dog too, we don't show her, our friend in Buffalo does. AKC. Once a few of her other dogs Champion, Betty will be going there for hers (and I will miss her like crazy!). Our next dog will likely come from Jen (friend in Buffalo) as well, we likely will be waiting for a retiring bitch.

    I honestly think Flirt is just cuter! LOL You should just change your username. Razz Aww, even the hubby did it! Did you guys meet on EQ?

    Thanks for the compliments. Smile Everyone here seems to have just the BEST looking pets! There have been many offers to steal off with Betty, actually. LOL Guess your daughter will have to get in line. Wink I also grew up with large hunting dogs, and Beagles. And although Beagles will always be my favourite, I adore Betty and her little dog-ness. She's like a 5th cat, and that's wonderful. A PUG! Ya know, I have never really been a fan of those pushed-in-faced animals... makes me so sad. Sad Cute dogs, just wish they didn't have so many health problems.. try and talk her into a Boston instead. Wink Love those! And they come in black/white. LOL

    He made mine! They aren't all fancy like some, but still cute enough to show off. LOL

    Betty is one of the cutest Chih's I've seen. I have to say tho the cutest one I ever saw was at the cleveland ohio show a few years back. It was a all white puppy and she took best in show and in the group ring she slipped out of her lead when her handler took her off the table and set her down on the floor she pranced her little self around the ring . It was so adorable.

    We didn't actually meet in eq. A friend of mine from eq is very good friends with him and we met thru him. He came to ohio to meet me and never left Smile.

    Ya I'm noy a fan of pugs either. Or any smushed face dog. I do agree that bostons are better but I would rather have a frenchie. They are soooo cute. But soooo expensive. I looked into just a pet and they wanted 2200 for just a pet !!!! My mouth about hit the floor.

    Oh and Dahlia will be in Delhi, Ontario

    Alex does a really good job making sigs. He made my eq sig for our forums Smile Well talk soon

    Holy I can totally see a wee-white one doing that, too! Such attitude! LOL

    Aww, internetz love is the best! Alex & I met online, too. Wink

    Oh yes, crazy what they charge for Frenchies! I also want one, but figure a Boston is more in our realm of possibilities. I have a hard time paying for pets, and most of mine in my life have been free... I think the only ones I've ever paid for are the birds. Everything else was rescue! Betty being the exception, not exactly a rescue, but free still.

    Not sure where Delhi is, but if it's close and you ever want us to steal check up on her, we'd be happy to steal go visit! Twisted Evil

    LOL Love the steals in there. Ya I know what you mean about free. I didn't pay anything for my 2 min pins. Both of them came from very good friends of mine. I've probably seen your friend around the shows. I used to frequent the buffalo/hamburg shows.

    Bostons are adorable. My friend has one that she shows and is getting another one. I really miss showing but I gave it up to start a new life and business. But someday I'll get back into going to the shows.

    Kelly, Delhi is about a 40 minute drive from you I think, just a little west-south-west, towards Port Dover, but not that far. I have an aunt that lives there!
