I work in a Veterinary Hospital, and have for over 17 years. I work as a Veterinary Assistant, I teach Puppy Classes and soon to start Kitten Classes. I also Have a Dog grooming service on the side(10yrs). My interests are surgery, preventative care and medicine. The biggest by far is Behavior, Human and animals.(prevention and treatments) At the moment I live with the boyfriend,(our own Apartment) and the 2 dogs. He has two kids that we see occasionnally, so I guess I am the evil step mother. I am 35 going on 36, I do hope next year to pop out one myself, if things go good between us.
I know I posted to this earlier, but never put in about our family. My name is Norma husband Dick, 4 Adult children, Bob and his wife in Colorado, Dave and his wife in Texas, Jim and his wife Upper MI and Beth and her husband in Tenn. We have lots of places to visit when I finally retire. Love Michigan but getting tired of the winters. Have had/raised various dogs over the years, mutts, beagles, yorkies, now have a rescue Puggle (Rocky) that we love to pieces. Fun looking at this topic. Hubby is semi retired, I work full times Customer Service Rep. My job is not nearly as exciting as some are, but trust me on this one, you sure run into some really nice and really rude people!!
Hi, I'm Jim. I am insurance adjuster. I'm 47 years old and my wife and I have 3 daughters and 5 dogs. We live in central Wisconsin. My handle "Irish Acres" is based on lake frontage we own in northern Wisconsin where our red heads love to romp and swim.
I like him a lot better than I like most people. To you he's a dog. TO me he's an adopted son who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly. I have no problem with any of these. <
My name is Serena and I am 37. I live in Texas. I have a wonderful husband Ron and three children... Jessica 21, Courtney 15 (or Nikkie as she want's to be called) and Ryan 14. I also have a grandson Paul and (one that should be here sometime this weekend) James. I was doing Medical claims examining for the last 10 yrs but quit that job to follow my heart. I am back as a Vet Tech. I also breed Pomeranian and Shih Tzu. I have 9 dogs, 1 cat, 1 bird and now 1... 120 gal salt water fish tank.
Life isn't like a box of chocolates . . it's more like a jar of jalapenos.
My husband and I are grad students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, hence, Illini. Spent a long time wanting to be a vet, that is, cleaning up after pets as volunteer/kennel/vet staff, but ultimately decided to study engineering. We have one dog, Bode... and a 120 gallon saltwater fish tank. I also have a vivarium, and am growing bromeliads (flowering air plants) in it. I am from Miami so it's a little reminder of home during the 30 degree weather we are having.
Today my husband brought our dog to work with him. I dressed Bode in his fleece jacket AND plaid scarf. I guess that tells you what kind of person I am! ;) My husband was embarrassed and insisted I walk the dog.

Hi, I'm Becky.. I'll be 25 in May.. My husband and I have been married for 3 years now.. He's in the Marine Corps and we're stationed in the middle of nowhere.. Since there's not much on the job front, we did what most military families doe... had a baby.. So, instead of staying home with 3 cats and 2 dogs, I now stay home with a 13 week old baby girl, 4 cats and soon to be 3 dogs..
I'm Heather, 29. I live in Seattle, WA. I just moved here and am looking for a "real job" so in the meantime I'm doing odd jobs around town to make money. I was a marketing manager in CA. I have a 2 yr old Lhasa Apso, Merphy and am looking to get a Mastiff or Mastiff Mix soon, but have a bit of work to do on Merphy before bringing another dog in (I'm about to call Cesar!)
