    Hello everyone :)

    I have been snooping this site for advice for a while so I thought its about time I joined up and take part properly!

    I am studying for a degree in Animal Management, working part time for a well known cat charity ( I am sure you can guess!), hoping to start my own dog walking/pet care business after I complete uni in May...and I recently re-homed a lovely Saluki x Greyhound called Flynn! :D

    Looking forward to chatting to you all! :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the welcome everyone :)

    Hi Calvine! It was rather bracing today! Lots of people had the scrapers out this morning! Just walked the dawg now, grass felt rather crispy! I feel a cold night coming on :)

    jaycee05, thanks for the welcome, I recently adopted Flynn, a saluki x greyhound (just looks like a small saluki though) about 4 weeks ago :) But have had animals all my life, millions of cats, two other dogs, hamsters, rats, mice, ferrets, snakes, lizards etc....even had a camel spider in the house at one point :eek: he was called scrappy...:D

    davidvealeboyes - I am sure I can manage to swing a vote Charlies way :p

    Now then! I grew up in North Yorkshire just up the coast from Whitby.

    I also used to have Lurcher called Amber ((I have never owned a Whippet or a flat cap :D))

    Welcome to you and Flynn :)
