I now have just 6 dogs here; my ancient Beagle (Missey) left this world in April 2014. Still have a Miniature Doxie/Yorkie Mix (Dusty), a rough-coated mixed Doxie named Inky, a 90-pound Yellow Lab named Chance, a 5-pound purebred rescued Yorkie named Manny, and the latest editions to the clan, two rescued brothers, Beagle/Chihuahua mixes, named Tigger and Mister P. I call them the BeaChis. *grin* Pobby, my old Golden Retriever mix, left us in late April 2005. And PeePee was put down after a freak accident in which she broke her back, in October of 2008; still miss her. All of my original rescue kitties are now gone; the last three left in late November 2014 -- they were 24 years old, and the last of the original clan of 14 kitties. In December 2013, my vet blessed me with a big, black kitty named Cougar; 2 years old, neutered, vaxed, and chipped, but can't be adopted out because he's FIV-positive. It took 8 months for him to adjust to being a house cat, and he's turned out to be a really good boy.

And of course, the ever-present laptop, or two, or three, plus whatever walks in the door to be fixed. ;-)

my age:
Plenty old enough to know better, but I still like to have fun!!! The saving grace is that nobody believes that I really am this "old" -- good genes!

my computer:
My current system is an ASUSTeK laptop; CORE i3, 64-bit, 8G Ram, 500G hard drive, and a DVD-Super multi-drive. I bought Windows 7 Ultimate for this laptop; came in with Home Premium, which I don't like. It runs like a scared rabbit. I gave up on fixing the HP Pavilion TX2000 laptop, even though it was also maxed out with Windows 7 Ultimate on it. Three mobos later due to the video card issue, it's not worth messing with anymore. It had the faulty weld on the motherboard, wherein the video died and the laptop wouldn't work. Too bad; it was a $1400 laptop, and I miss having it around. Recently (December 2014) purchased a Dell Latitude E6420 from smw315 as my new backup laptop; Core i5, 500G hard drive, and I'll be maxing out the memory to 8G. Looking forward to getting it up and running.

favourite websites:
DSLReports.com!!! I'm also a weather junkie, so wunderground.com is another favorite. DogoftheDay.com is also another favorite.

On TV I'm watching..:
I gave up on cable TV due to the expense. Bought a Roku box and hooked it up to the TV, and now stream everything. I'm an avid fan of good cop shows and regularly retire to the couch with my critters, for a lovely round of watching the tube! *grin*

About my Avatar/Username:
My original avatar was Missey, my beloved Beagle; she left in April of 2014, and she was my "heart" dog! All Beagle, including her nose, and she was very special to me. I chose to replace my avatar with the BeaChi boys, since they are part Beagle, and I dearly love Beagles. :-)

Why did I join?:
To provide more computer cycles, so that maybe, just maybe, we'll find a cure for some of these ailments that take lives too early. I'm doing this for my mother, who died of complications of diabetes, and for Rocky, my Rottweiler; he died in March '01, of liver cancer.
