Hello from the Midwest!

Post by blackrose » Wed Nov 16, 2011 10:41 pm

Hello, everyone! My name is Andrea. I'm currently in my last year at Purdue University (Indiana, USA) majoring in Animal Science. I am the proud mom to a 4.5 year old female Collie/Australian Shepherd mix, two senior ferrets, and a dwarf hamster. I currently still live at home (will be getting my own place this summer), so I also share the house with a senior Lab mix, a newly adopted Lab mix pup, two indoor cats, five outdoor cats, and a Cockatiel. Needless to say, the entire family has a love for animals. ;)

I've been planning on adding a new pup to the family for quite some time now (going on three years). I've narrowed down what breeds I'm interested in and am now researching various breeders and trying to find lines I like. Hopefully, if all goes well, I'll be ready for a pup by next fall.

I've had my heart set on another Labrador for quite some time now (my childhood dog was a Lab who just recently passed away, and he was just my perfect dog), but I've also been looking at other breeds as well. The Chesapeake Bay Retriever and Rottweiler are also on my "maybe" list. But, my boyfriend really prefers more of the "wolf" look in dogs, so I've been putting out feelers for a breed he and I can both be happy with, since he's ultimately going to have to live with the dog, too.

So, here I am! :D I'll be posting another thread for information on the breed, so stay tuned.

And a picture of my girl:

There’s a battle between two wolves inside us all.
One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth.

The wolf that wins? The one you feed!

~ Cherokee Proverb

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity... I'm not sure about the former.

Hey there! I'm also go to Purdue (Boiler up)! Small world, huh? I'm a Junior majoring in Hospitality & Tourism Management. My dad is an Ag alum, though, and I've got a few friends in the Ag department. I nearly switched to Wildlife last year when my old roomie did, but I settled for a concentration in envrionmental conservation instead :lol:

If we both end up with Tamaskans sometime in the future, we're going to have to do a little Tamaskan meetup on the Memorial Mall!
