Yep, that photo to the left is yours truly, circa 1985 mind you. If your math isn’t as terrible as mine, you’d have already figured out that it would put me in the range of 27-28 years of age.
Currently while writing this, I’m 27; although I often forget, and write down 28 instead. I guess my age is already starting to creep up on me! =b
I grew up in Southern Ontario, Canada, but moved to Quebec in the autumn of 2009; right before the birth of my first child. Baby number two came along not too long after, so I tend to be quite the busy bee.
I’m usually pretty open-minded and love to learn new things. I can change my mind on a whim, but at the same time, I find it very difficult to admit I am wrong. Feel free to point it out to me though, as I need to be brought down to Earth every once in a while.
Outside is where you’ll often find me. I’m a country girl at heart, who sadly doesn’t live in the country. I’m currently working on that though and hope to have my dream home on a few acres in the coming years.
I’ve always had pets, or a zoo depending on who you ask. I was the girl who would find injured wildlife in need of care and bring them home to my mom. She wasn’t too pleased of course, especially after finding a few garter snakes in my pockets, but entertained my blossoming interest in animal care.
When I was born, my parents already had a toy poodle named Scruff, or Bandit… he had two names apparently. He was my first dog. He was returned to his breeder, my aunt, before I was year old though due to house training issues.
I had 3 more family dogs after that; Haggis, a Dalmatian, Earl, a Beagle, and Abby, a mix of German Shepherd and Black Labrador. They were eventually put down or given away by my mother.
My first dog of my own is Kyuss, who is the star of this blog. He was my first dog who was solely mine and my responsibility. I hope you enjoy reading about him and various other dog related stuff!
