Hi everybody, I'm Ariel, and I'm 19 years old. I love animals and random factoids that hardly anyone else knows. My favorite? The random factoids about animals that hardly anyone else knows. Did you know a bloodhound, under optimal conditions, can pick up a scent from a single cell? I'm a bit eccentric, and enjoy spending time with my family and friends (usually the canine ones trump the humans!) I live with and apprentice under Lisa (PawtentialUnleashed) and have learned so much in the space of just a few months. She is an amazing trainer and I'm very proud to learn from her. That said, I'd love to learn from more people as well, and be a part of a community that is so dog friendly. Dog friendly places? Psh, it's a shame we can't import our dogs onto the internet. ^_^ So, a little about my pups. Kismet is an 11 month old Havacavapoo (Havanese x Cavalier King Charles x Toy Poodle). She is the world's best snuggler, at least in my eyes. She is my quick little bunny! She only weighs 6 lbs, but I could swear her heart weighs twice that! Karma is 14 weeks and is also a Havacavapoo, Kismet's sister, in fact. She is my training buddy. Her tail will never wag faster than when she has learned something new. Well, I look forward to meeting you all and learning more.
