Hi, I'm Desertwife and glad to be here. I have four dogs (desert mix breeds we call them) two are 6 month old siblings named Dakota and Buddy already pushing fifty pounds, adorable but still a hand full. One 8 year old named Jake possibly collie/husky. Jake unfortunatly has lymphoma. we also have a 5 year old black lab we call Luke who our neighbors gave to us because...well lets just say it wasn't Lukes fault there were problems. He's a wonderful dog.
