Hi Sharon. As Zagut said Arf! Arf!. That is welcome in barking dialect. Everyone here is an avid animal lover. And we have a chicken lover or two also.
We do have a sense of humor. With our cooking as well as just joking around. We love to see pics of what you cook. Failures as well as the successes.
One of the nicest thing about this forum, these are probably the most compassionate folks you will ever converse with. Stick around and get ready for some real belly laughs.
