Thread: Hi

    Default Hi

    Hi, my name is Rob and I am an artist after some advice. I will contact the forum host shortly to ask how to go about this without making it appear that I'm spamming. As for pets, used to have a lovely doberman "Vostok" and now my wife and I have two beautiful cats.

    Cheers

    Rob

    Gday Rob,

    I'd love to see a pic or 2 of your Doberman mate. If you contribute towards the forum and get the OK from Morgan you fit in just fine.

    G'day Sean, More pain... no photos of Vostok. He was an amazing dog, a real gentle critter. We used to take turns being the pillow for arvo naps then he died whilst I was away. Nearly killed me never seeing him again. I really don't know why I get pets cause I can't handle when they go. I can't say goodbyes, even at work, I just have to walk out and pretend I'm coming back... but it's worse with pets.

    Hi RobK! Are you planning on getting another dog?

    Wouldn't mind but we have to be mindful of our situation at the moment. We have two cats and a dog would make visiting our daughter a real hassle and wouldn't be able to visit my mum at all. If we do it will probably be a toss up between a pug, GSP or whippet.

    GSPs are awesome looking dogs.
    Would the visiting be a hassle because of training a pup, or because you would be away from home for too long?

    Geez, sorry mate..i read your post to fast and missed the "used to have" bit....sorry mate, i wouldnt have asked for a pic if i read that properly. I know what ya mean mate. I'm hopless with goodbyes...and the forever ones just break me too. The worse thing about pets is out living them. Maybe a tortise would be a good pet. I've heard they live for a good 90 years or so !! Sorry mate.

    Well, my Mum wouldn't have a dog in the house and my daughter just wouldn't have the space. I suppose a pug wouldn't be a space issue but the kids fences would also be a hassle. So we'd be looking at lodging and that could get quite expensive.

    Not a drama Sean. You see, I really do question my weak as piss nature sometimes. Your signature ... I couldn't even buy the Footrot Flats issue when the dog got written out of the script. I am thinking I might be just a bit too tender. I am finding that painting animals is a form of therapy and I'm hoping it helps.

    Welcome
    So sorry to hear about your loss! i know what its like, i lost my Border collie many years ago and it is still hard.
    I'm a massive sook when it comes to saying goodbye. My Kelpie is turning 9 this year and even thinking about the day i will have to say my last goodbye to her brings me to tears
