Nickname/Preferred name: Tiffany
Occupation: Currently I am a secondary service worker. That is my fancy title. What I basically do is babysit a mentally handicapped young man. I am going to college to become a medical coder as well.
Age: I am 32.
About your dog(s): I currently have three dogs.
This is Hunter. He is a black lab. We got him over ten years ago. Not sure on his age but when we acquired him, he was full grown and had all his adult teeth. So he is at least 11 years old, possibly older. He is OCD when it comes to retrieving, so he is doing the job he was meant to do. And then some! I am surprised I haven't worn out my shoulder throwing his toys for him. he also loves the water. Yup, your typical lab. Very obedient and intelligent.
This is Dozer. He is a mastiff. He is almost 6 years old now. He is a big baby and the most affectionate dog I have ever known. He has bonded very close to me and really only listens to me (much to my husband's chagrin). His favorite things to do are eat and sleep while I pet him. If he had his way, I would never stop petting him. Unfortunately for him, I also have to do other things in life. He is overweight but I closely monitor his food and we walk at least 2 miles every day usually. His blood shows no issue with thyroid. You know how difficult it can be to lose weight and this breed is prone to weight problems but I do my best to keep him as healthy as I can.
This is Sargeant (please excuse the dirty floor). He is half dachshund and half poodle. He is my heart dog. I may as well have birthed this dog myself, that is how closely bonded we are. he is going to be 10 years old. I can not believe he is that old. I have had him since he was 5 weeks old (long story). He would walk through fire for me. He hates water but if I am in the water, he comes for me, crying and everything. He does not have separation issues though and is a very well behaved dog. If I take a dog with me somewhere public, it is him. He is very polite with other dogs but does not care much for children or strange men (just like me!). he is intelligent and strong willed.
Otis is not a dog. Otis is not even a male. Otis weaseled her way into this house and she just won't leave! I am kidding of course. I do love her. She is my indoor/outdoor cat. She does a great job killing mice around here and yet leaves all my livestock alone, even the baby ones. She can access them but she doesn't. If you asked her who her best friend would be, she would probably say Dozer. You know, the largest, scariest dog here. And she loves to tease Sargeant.
Interests: I enjoy T.V and movies. Recently I have become interested in raising livestock type animals. I currently have chickens, rabbits, and my newest addition are guinea fowl keets. I have recently gotten more healthy with my eating after I took a good look at my own diet. Why should the animals eat better than me? They still do but I am doing a lot better. I started juicing fruits and vegetables and that has made a very positive impact on me. I am starting to choose better options for myself. I am a work in progress I guess. I also compost and would like to start a garden next year. I also have a worm compost bin which I recently started. Boy those things can eat! For being so small, they really pack it away! I also enjoy sleep.
Favorite music: I like a little of everything...even country and rap. But my main music is rock. I grew up in the grunge era so I love stuff like Alice In Chains, Nirvana, NIN, Tool, Perfect Circle, Godsmack, Days of the New, Metallica, and the list goes on and on. I like today's music too but I am selective on that. I can only handle so much pop music.
Favorite book: I don't have a favorite but I have read stuff like the Harry Potter series, Mercy Thompson series, Kelly Armstrong, various werewolf novels, and I am currently tackling the mother of all books, The Bible.
Favorite quote: The more I know about people, the more I like my dog. -Mark Twain

And me on a camel, why not? That is my brother behind me. It was his birthday that day and I was determined that he would get to ride a camel. He loved it.
