  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

As many of you know this has been a tough year for the boys and I....I decided to end my marriage and drive the boys and myself from Colorado to Massachusetts ( what an adventure, many followed our trek...lol) I know I have been absent of the forum as of late, but always hold you in my heart[img]http://www.igwhispers.com/forum//public/style_emoticons/default/wub.png[/img] Because of our kinship and love for this breed. I have been able to be strong. To know that because of these tiny creature That we are blessed to hold in our stewardship of ( well Simon is not so tiny [img]http://www.igwhispers.com/forum//public/style_emoticons/default/tongue.png[/img] ) we are not only friends, but a family. A family that is there through the good and bad...........From helping with advice, to helping with chip-ins when the need arises....To the Secret Santa....How fun !!

So with that being said, Here are the wonderful gifts that we received today................................

WOW! That was an awesome Secret Santa package. All of the pictures were great, but I agree with Linda, the action shot of Maverick pretty much sums up the excitement. I've never seen that treat maker. Might have to look for one of those for my girls (and the foster boys, too).

Hi Lori, I didn't realise that you'd made that trip because you'd ended your marriage :( What a fantastic SS, Alexssa has done you and the boys proud, I'm glad that you have all had a wonderful SS. I can't single out one particular item, the whole thing was beautiful, hugs from Yanni and myself :)
