A proper introduction

Hello everyone,

I thought that maybe it was time to properly introduce myself. I have been a lurker for a long time...never felt I had anything to post. I cried and cringed and laughed for many months...and came to truly enjoy many of you on here.
But it was Hooch's crisis that brought me to the forum to post. And to pray. And so here I am...out of the closet after all this time.
So what is there to know?
My husband and I are two old farts with an old fart of a dog. As you can see from the picture, Taya enjoys the loveseat and lazing with us. She's 8 now and I struggle with thoughts of potential loss. But so far so good--after two ACL surgeries...she is happy and so are we.
The thing I'm proudest of is that my grandpups are Parker and Camden. You probably know them...Heather has been a good member of GRF for a long time. Can't wait to get my calendar--look at August!
It's nice to be here...

Glad you stepped up and introduced yourself. Of course we know your grandpup , Camden. Taya is a sweet girl too. I love the wisdom in those white golden faces. She still has a lot of life in her yet. This is a great place to hang out and learn a lot.

Welcome to the board. This board has definitely become quite the community. I wish we all lived in the same town, wouldn't that be great?

Can't wait to here some of your stories.

Glad you came and started posting. You have a beautiful girl and looks like she is very contented on the loveseat. She looks like she has alot of spirit in her and will be around for a long time. My Beau is over 10 and still going and there are days when I think he will not and then he surprises me. He likes to keep me on my toes.

I have the calendar and Parker and Camden are stunning!!! Camden named after Camden Yards??? If so, clever, I love it. And Taya is a sweetheart- sorry I missed your intro as well, but hey, now we're all seeing her!!!!

Yeah, Hgatesy--don't feel bad--I missed this thread, too.

Welcome to the Forum, Jenny Wren. Beautiful "pup"--our Jordie is around 9+ and he plays like he's 2 (or maybe that's his IQ--I don't know)

What part of central PA are you in? We're down here about an hour east of Pittsburgh.

Again, welcome!

SJ

Well--Heather--you are looking around tonight aren't you. This has been buried for a while now.

We have a good group from Pennsylvania here on GRF. Rob has the Southeast part of the state covered, SJ has the Southwest. Heather is in the State College area and I'm up north--outside of Wellsboro. I know Jo Ellen is from PA too but I'm not sure where.

Other PA folks that we don't know about?

Thanks for the nice welcome folks!
