Hello from Tacoma, WA

Post by JenV » Sat Sep 15, 2012 2:17 am

Hello All,
My husband and I have been reading about the Tamaskan dog on the internet for a short while. We've been discussing bringing a new puppy into our home after November of this year sometime. I am a part time undergraduate researcher at the University of Washington in Tacoma and my husband is in the Army stationed at Joint Base Lewis McChord. Because of his specific job in the Army (MOS) we are likely to be here for the rest of his career. We purchased a home here two years ago and have been loving the PNW ever since.

Currently we have an 11 year old GSD and a 6 year old Malamute/spitz mix. I am unable to have children, so our dogs have become like children to us. Our GSD has had quite a few health problems and we've been looking for a dog that does not have such a high incidence of these sorts of things. I know things still happen, but it seems like the Tamaskan breed is rather hearty.

I look forward to learning all that I can (in addition to what we've picked up from our friend Google) from you all and hopefully, given we are the right kind of family for a pup, becoming a member of the Tamaskan owner's community. :)

Edit: Removed my double usage of "currently." I suppose I was a little excited when I was writing my intro. :P

Hi and welcome :D

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.
