Welcome Sam! Sorry I am a little late with your welcome, but better late than never, hmm? I just had to go and look to see where Bullock is. I was born in NC and lived there till after college. Hope you enjoy the site!
Sam, below is the official welcome to give you the full experience every new member gets. I wanted to personally welcome you, also. The site is pretty easy to navigate and cane be very user friendly or confusing, I guess on you level of forum experience. The tabs up top gets you to all of the groups, forum discussions, etc. If you are interested in a topic and post a comment, then you will be automatically following (like FB). If you don't comment, but still want to follow click the "Follow" button under the comment box (like the like button in FB).
I am still in the process of making us All Dog Friendly but the basics are here. You are welcome to explore and see where you need help. If you need to get to me, click on my name or picture (all over the site) and you will be brought to my page.Let me know what you think and then we can talk more about our shared vision and integration.
I have a similar muse who helped start me on this road, my std poodle, Magic died in 2006 from the dog food recalls and the u turn of my life began. I had always taken in a stray (or 2 or 3) but never to this extent. Anyway, WELCOME and lets think about how we can both grow and help more people.
