    Has anyone else noticed how many of our avatars are pics of our beloved pets?
    I noticed as soon as I started reading the message board that there are a lot of dog pics; but thought it must be because I love my pups so much.
    I just started realizing that there are a lot of cats too!

    Nice pictures of your furbabies. I have 2 quilt/fabric inspectors who always help me. One is my avatar. I use Romeo as my avatar b/c he takes a much better picture than I do plus he's prettier. Seriously, hate having my pic taken and am never happy with the reults. Love your dogs - what breed are they?

    That is why I have Buddy as mine! LOL
    He is a chow lab mix and Wolfie is a Shiba Inu chow mix. As near as we can tell, anyway. They are both rescue dogs; they rescued me! :lol: I would be lost without them! I have 8 beautiful grandkids; but of course they dont live with me. So my boys are my 24 hour a day loves!!

    All of mine are rescues too. One kitty is from Death Row at the animal shelter and the other 2 adopted us so we returned the favor. Our German Shepherd is 1 of 2 left alive from a litter of 7 and the boxer would have gone to the pound if we hadn't adopted him. I believe in resucing animals b/c generally they return the favor at least once in their lifetime.

    I say God has a sense of humor and gives me these critters to keep my smiling! Gabby came from a restaurant my ds worked at 2 years ago. Some kids were going to drown her for "fun". He called and told me and I said bring her home!

    Bandit was locked in a pen with 2 St.Bernards and some friends of mine found him and said they were going to shoot him because he had worms! He came home with me!

    Tux came from a friend who found him under her shed and couldn't keep him. Dixie, from a friend whose dog had puppies and she couldn't keep them. Buddy came into my life a month after my mom passed away. I just love them all!
