I'm A Newbie!

Hi Everyone!

I am a HUGE Golden Retriever person. I live in MI, and I have had a Golden as part of my life since I was 7 years old. I can't imagine a live without a Golden.

Currently I have 3 dogs, 2 Goldens and 1 Lab (my second favorite breed). Maxine aka "Max" is my perfect angel. She is 11, and is the world's best dog (aren't they all ). Most people can not believe her age, she still acts like she is two. My other Golden is Teddi she is 17 months. Teddi is a beauty! and smart. Unfortunately she was plagued by hip dysplasia and had to have a THR 2 days after her first birthday. She is doing awesome and we hope to start back to normal activity after our 6 month check up in April. My Lab child is Belle she will be 5 in May. She is a black lab, and she is GINORMOUS!!! She is a total sweetie.

Our dogs get lots of attention. Summer months we find water where ever and when ever we can, my girls LOVE to swim. They have all competed in dock jumping competitions, and play with agility. Belle has her first competition coming up. Teddi's level of agiity and dock jumping participation will be limited but we plan to be very careful so she can play too.

We hope to get to know everyone over time on this board.

Here's the scoop. I belong to a TON of forum boards and all want me to post pics. I don't have a pic website thingy. I have them all on my personal 'puter. I know, I know I have to get one. Maybe this weekend I will work on that. If so you'd better watch out! There is nothing I like better than showing off pics of all my babies. They are good girls, a mother could not be prouder.

You don't need a photo web site... on this forum you can upload directly from your computer. When you reply (not quick reply, regular reply), under Additional Options, it says "Attach Files," just click on Manage Attachments and select the files you want to post. It will upload them from your computer directly to the forum. And voilą!

Photobucket works well and is free. Now don;t let us have to warn you too many times about no pictures. Yeah I am the village idiot and not sure how I made moderator. Strange things do happen.

Welcome from Oklahoma! I look forward to pics as well - we all love our furbaby photo fix's

In addition to being able to upload photos here, there are also lots of places online that offer free photo hosting and make it very easy to share photos in forums and emails. There is a How-To thread on this forum and I am pretty sure you will find links to free photo hosting places and more. I used Photobucket and webshots in the past, but use smugmug now (which is inexpensive, but not free). I'm sure by the time I post this you'll already have lots of other replies on this topic... I'm the slow one 'round here

Welcome again!

Tiffany
