Hey guys! I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Jodie, and I am a 30 year old Thoracic Surgeon, married, and mother of ten. In live in Bedford, TX in a 4 bedroom 4 bath house, 4,736 Sq. Ft. I have a one acre backyard, that opend into a ten acre fenced in wooded lot which I use for huting. Wildlife, especially birds have made home there, which provides for excellent hunting possibilities. I also raise Brittanys, and this is a great place to let them run. Not only do I breed Brittanys, but all of my dogs participate in hunting birds with me. I also join in on field trials, hunt tests, and obedience with my dogs. I'm not going to tell you how many I have, but it is a lot. lol Someone on dogster told me about this site, so I decided to join up. I'll post my dogster links so everyone can see my dogs! Oh, and just for a little more info my children are Aidan, 1, Madison, 2, Ethan, 3, Emma, 4, Caden, 5, Abigail, 6, Caleb, 7, Riley, 8, Dylan, 9, & Bailey, 10. lol Yeah, I know, a lot. Here are my dogs:
Hi jodi, Help! after looking at all your babies i got to thinking if they were at home with me . i think i would need you to operate on my head !!!!!!!!! lol...lol.... how in the world do you do it ?zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Thank you very much. It is hard to find the time to sleep. lol I've got a litter of 10 pups right now, only 5 days old. I'm bottle feeding two since the mother isn't able to feed anymore than eight. My oldest children, 9 & 10 help out with the dogs, and so does my husband. And, vise versa. The dogs help out with the youngest kids! lol My husband works at the same place I do, a lot less hours though, as an Anesthesiologist. I routinley have to count on the eldest dogs and our parents to watch the children. The last couple of days I have even ended up taking the two newborn pups, nicknamed Pain & Butt, to work with me. lol Sometimes I let some of the patient's family and nurses care for them while I am in surgery. lol It's a lot of fun and helps ease the stress and pressure. I'm usually hunting on the weekend or at shows. I spend the nights I have off with my children and husband and dogs. Whenever I get some free time I sleep. Except for right now. lol I better get going I've gotta feed the dogs and the lil' pups. I'm glad to be here too! Thanks for the welcome!
