New to the forum

Post by Portland Rain on Sun Mar 06, 2011 9:12 pm

Hi everyone,

I am new to the forum and relatively new to the planet.

I like the new place, hate the new carpet smell though.

I can provide references to my lack of character if needed.

I am not sure about the carpet yet, but I am sure about the character of the character. One could characterize it as charismatic. Welcome Mr. Rain.

New pup! Meet Jack. Mastiff/lab mix 11 weeks old, 30 pounds. I hope my playing improves fast because I'm gonna need a gold record to afford the dog food soon. Speaking of needing new carpet...

Man you sure called that Omega. Mastiff = mini horse

Dozer's first girlfriend was a next door Neopolitan Mastiff, boy was he sad when they had to find her a new home. They couldn't keep her in the chain link fence. She was so strong she would put her nose under and push through as a pup and then when full grown she pulled a whole section of the fence down just to get over to Dozer. Big as a couch she was. Good luck PR!

Big as a couch is so true. I wouldn't recommend these dogs for an inexperienced dog owner. When he's all finished growing he could weigh as much as a couple hundred pounds.

I hope I'm not compensating for other shortcomings...

Hey PR. He is really cute -- now. Our dog has (hopefully) topped out at about 50 pounds. There's a dog in my neighborhood that is about 160. It's a rott-lab-retriever-pit-mastiff mix. Just plain HUGE! It's very friendly though, which is better than the alternative.

I saw a Bull Mastiff/Boxer mix today. I guessed Newfoundland, as it seemed too small for a mastiff, but too big for a Lab. Had the Mastiff build, but not so jumbo.

I think every morning that I wake up Jack is noticeably larger. He has a great personality. We got him too young so we have been dealing with biting/chewing training but he's coming around. If only my daughter was as willing to be trained. We expect him to outweigh her in another month.

He hates my guitar playing. I guess he's not a blues fan. Suspect

I'm new to this forum, too! A lack of character was no handicap in the old forum. Has something changed? Where can I find some of this "character" stuff?

Thanks, gang...glad to be back. On the dog front, Bucky, our English Bull Terrorist is about a year old, but still acts like a puppy. He is kind of a sixty-five pound bowling ball and the grandkids are the pins. What a pain in the butt he is...but the first dog we've owned that I actually like. I don't know why. He has destroyed more stuff than two military moves and a house fire.

Hey guys ... signed on this morning. It looks like I'm the new guy on the block. It's good to be back in touch. And I agree with PR, it does have a "new carpet smell".

Welcome gtrbill. It really is great to see all of you again. I always thought the old Breedlove guitar forum was the best around. A big thank you to all who made this possible again...and especially to Mac for keeping things alive.

Well hello everyone, here's another new guy on the block.

I've been an electric player for longer than I can remember, and gradually got myself set up with decent acoustics - and I'm now "learning to play" all over again. Some of the electric skills are transferable (knowledge of the neck, finger dexterity), but acoustics are completely different animals - and a whole lot of fun and discovery.

I have a really nice 2006 Breedlove Ed Gerhard signature edition (and two Taylors), so I'm a happy camper.

I just discovered this forum a few days ago, and thought I'd just say hello.

Cheers,
Daniel (from Val-des-Monts, Quebec)
