My avatar is a tribute to dogs in general. I am a thwarted dog lover having been raised with one beloved family dog and having a series of dogs after I left home. In 1976 I started raising dairy goats and quickly learned that untrained dogs and goats are a very bad combination. I have not had a dog since 1976. And after having the responsibility of livestock raising, I now relish being animal free. But I still love dogs. The avatar is of a Bichon Frise that I once baby sat.

Mine is one of our two dogs. Abby is a basenji and golden lab mix. We also have Clover, who is an Irish Setter. Both are rescues.

Abby is one of the smartest dogs I have run across anywhere, and I'm not just saying that because she's one of my best friends and cuddle buddies. That little dog does things that astound me from time to time, especially when it comes to hunting skills, or trying to outsmart her "big sister."

Mine is my beagle, who hates to wear sweaters.

Mine is how I feel about my wonderful country!

Oh and no actual flags were harmed in the making of it!

You mean my sassy pinup girl, Trixie who "loves to cook"?

I've had her saved on my computer for years and when I came here she just fit right in.

Mine is self explanatory I think but just in case you wondered....

I love chocolate - dark, smooth, sultry, tantalizing, make you roll your eyes in pleasure CHOCOLATE. ;)

I'm enjoying reading about everyone's avatars - thank you all for sharing! I think I especially love the beloved pets and knowing the names of those sweet faces.

Andy, I have to say I'm especially glad you shared the larger picture of yours! I've wondered about it since I first came here. I thought it was rain, and now I know it's a smaller part of a beautiful park pond.

Have to run out the door now and do some errands....see y'all later!

Janet, for some reason I've always thought your avatar was a roulette wheel (I went to college and lived in Las Vegas for several years)

NOW I see chocolate!

"Keep calm and Eat Poi"

Well, I'm usually calm, very even keeled
and Poi is like a staple Hawaiian food... a cooked and mashed Taro root
For me, I like it OLD, and the older the better flavor.
Fresh Poi is what y'all refer to as library paste,
I also like some Hawaiian Salt on it too,
so kinda,
that's me
