Hello all! My name is Mandi and I'm new to this forum so I thought I'd introduce myself. I have two Basenjis, Copper and Opie (my "Boys"). Copper will be 10 in March and Opie just turned 8 a few weeks ago. I've had them both since they were puppies…how time flies! My husband and I don't have any children so my Boys are my only kids and are spoiled rotten as a result lol.
My husband is active duty Army so we tend to move frequently and when he deploys it's just the three of us here. He's in Afghanistan now and I have no idea what I would do without them! We currently live in Tennessee but just moved here earlier this year from three years in Germany. The plane ride wasn't fun at all. I don't know who was more stressed by the move...them or me! I used to volunteer frequently with BRAT and fostered occasionally as well before the move overseas but it's taking a while to get back into things.
I just got a job, finally, but haven't started yet. I'm going to be working as an education and career counselor at a university. The Boys are NOT going to like me going back to work after having me home all day for so long!
Anyways, that's me in a nutshell. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you!
