My name is Brenda. I'm a stay-at-home dog mom and my mom's caregiver. I find working in the yard great therapy. :wink: I use to work in the yard many years ago then took a break for a few years when I moved. I've been working the yard we have now. It has come a long way but it still has a long way to go too. I hope I don't 'bug' you guys too much with all the questions I'm sure I'm going to have. :D

Hi Brenda and welcome to Hallsons! That a great bunch of furkids you have there. So adorable! Don't worry about asking too many questions. Just find the forum you need and jump right in. We're a friendly and helpful bunch. :wink:

Hi Brenda, and welcome to Hallson's! I'm new myself, and I've found that no one minds being "bugged" with questions. Have at it! :D

Your fur kids are absolutely adorable. I've got three of my own, but I'm not sure I could ever get them to pose for a photograph at the same time. hehe

Thank you! Karen, I'll let you in on a little secret, I didn't get them to pose. They were having popcorn time with my DH. He always has their undivided attention during popcorn time! :lol:

I've been reading past threads and this website is great! It's so informative. (I wasn't aware of the Hosta Virus until I read it here.) I love the pictures you guys post too. I can only hope our yard looks as good one day.

JJ & Jake, the black & white ones, are border collies. Josie, our merle girl, is our mutt. Her dam was an aussie and her sire was a border collie.

Welcome, Brenda! I was a caregiver to my parents for most of the last 10 years. They are both gone now, and I don't regret a minute of the time I spent with them.
It's challenging, but rewarding.
I like your pups, too. I had figured out that two of them were border collies, and thought I detected some Aussie in the other, so it's nice to know that I was on track.
I've had herding dogs of one type or other most of my life, but now I have a little dachshund.
Have fun checking out all the forums here!
