Fiona and Edward are Shih Tzu; Boo is an English Setter. I did German Shorthaired Pointer Rescue for 25 years. It was so rewarding.



What college? I graduated Cumberland University in TN and Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green.



Love this thread. Hope it gets lots of traffic.
Northeast State community college in TN for now and then transfer to either ETSU or UT. Going for biochemistry.

That's really common. My father is a 45 year master carpenter and he has had to fix many of them. People forget you need a slope for water to run. Lol
I know when we built my house he taught me a lot of things. I'm no carpenter but I can work on things and luckily still have dad I can ask for help if I get in over my head.

@Daniel1990 re that Husky be still my heart. Growing up my uncle raised them and visiting his huskies was great fun.

On the road to Saratoga for business then to the mountains of NH for hiking that part of the Appalachian trail. Then onward to Canada (haven't figured that part out yet)

Before leaving I found a small spider on the wall - about the size of a small housefly. So I dropped it in the water for the fishy. At first he wasn't sure what it was, then he bumped it (like a shark) causing the spider to hightail it but it disappeared in a flash. The fish just scarfed the whole thing down lol.


BTW biology major here - tend to geek out on all things science, esp the oceans . Tendency towards free thinking and insubordination. 😱

Cool idea to start a non- betta thread!

Thank you. I thought this would be a good way to get to know the people behind the fish and I am glad you like the idea.

I hope that school goes well for you and it is not too stressful!

I will try to post pictures often of my little Takota expecting him to get around 70 to 80 lb since that's the weight of his mother and father respectively. He is the first husky I've ever had and will be the largest dog I have ever had lol. I considered getting a second husky but decided training one pup at a time is hard enough.

Biology is awesome. I have thought about if when I get into the senior college level that I decide biochemistry is not for me I might go into more of a strict biology field such as Forestry/Forest management. The very first thing I wanted to do in school was going to marine biology. I decided against that as the job field has far more people going into it then there is job openings and grants unfortunately.
After that I have done some teacher education classes. About 2 years worth.
I decided I didn't want to be a teacher so then I went into engineering and after working in a manufacturing facility decided I hate machines even if I do have a natural aptitude for running and fixing them. Lol
Because of that natural tendency I got talked into choosing aviation maintenance technology. I excelled in my classes and had a good career paths set for myself. Unfortunately a stroke that come out of nowhere has left me with balance, some superficial nerve damage and fine motor control loss in my right side.
So now on my 5th official Major I am hoping that this time I will be able to stick stick with it and excel in the field.
