Forum newbie :)

Post by Red_trainer on Mon Sep 14 2015, 08:50

Hello everyone!

I'm a newbie to the forum and am owned by three dogs, one being a delightful SBT (possibly a cross as she is a rescue). I have loved Staffies for a long time and worked with lots of various bull breeds as me and my partner have volunteered at several rescues, which sadly in the UK are full of SBT and SBT mixes.

We got our first dog over four years ago and he had a bad start in life, which lead to me doing tons of research on dog behaviour, body language and training. Since then I have begun walking other people's dogs and offering training advice, which is really fun and I love helping other people see the huge benefits of positive reinforcement! day dreaming

My SBT is called Zoey and we rescued her when she was around 10 weeks old -she will be 3 next month. She is extremely loving, happy to see everyone, highly intelligent and just adorable. She also loves to learn and knows over 30 tricks!

We had a health scare yesterday but after a trip to the emergency vet (by which point she was acting 100% normal Tongues ) she seems to be perfectly fine...*phew* that was terrifying, please don't ever get ill again Zoey!!

Look forward to joining discussions and sharing photos of her Smile

Oh hey thanks for the lovely welcomes everyone! Smile

I will post photos as soon as I am able - can any administrators / mods let me know if there is a way I would be able to post photos now? I tried using photobucket but can't post external links for 7 days...it's fine if I have to wait that long, I have a draft saved that I'll post whenever I can Big Grin

Thank you for the welcome Misty's mum, Zoey is pretty adorable but we may be biased haha! And cheers for the help Mia05 Smile The issue I'm having is that I can type the post out, and when I preview I can see the photos, but when I hit send I get this message:

"New members are not allowed to post external links or emails for 7 days. Please contact the forum administrator for more information."

Just wondering if there's anyway to allow me to post pics early haha? Smile

Are you pasting the photo's individually by the IMG code?

I think so...I'm just copying the text from the IMG tag on photobucket.

Oh okay there is an [ URL ] bit before the [img] bit when you copy from photobucket, I wonder if that is counting as a link? Hmm, can I delete the URL bit...hold on I'll try...

Oh okay, there is happy tired Zoey Big Grin

It seems when I copy the IMG link / code from photobucket, photobucket includes an url tag in there too, so it counts as an external link...if I delete the extra it works. Thanks for the help! Big Grin

That was her extreme tired / happy face after our 'adventure' in a taxi to the vet and back, then she got a walk to help let off some steam...her mouth isn't usually that wide I swear XD

Haha thank you, and hello too! I am loving this forum so far - so nice to be around other Staffy lovers Big Grin

In the village we live in it's very rare to meet people who like bull breeds, or want to say hello to Zoey...we have had our fair share of nasty comments, calling her evil and saying her breed should be banned...so this is a lovely positive, Staffy-focused place to be Smile
