New kid on the block…

Hello all!  My name is Stevie, I’m new to this team, and I’m actually new to the whole blogging community, so please go easy on me! 🙂  I’m willing to bet that most of you have a furry friend that keeps you company while you’re playing games, watching movies, or reading a book.  Well, I joined this team to write about those little fluff balls!  I’ll be sharing some information to help you & your pets, along with some of my own stories of my pets.

A little more about me.. As you already know, my name is Stevie.  And despite having a “boyish” name, I am not a boy! *gasp*  My dad is a big Stevie Nicks fan, thus my name!  I have been a vet tech for 10 years, and have always had a passion for animals. I have 2 kids, 2 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 rats (they’re all boys and I’m severely outnumbered!).  Since I’ll be focusing on writing about pets, I’ll start by telling you all about mine.  There’s Bobby, who is my first “baby”, he’s a 13 year old corgi mix. I adopted him 11 years ago from the tech school I went to. As you can guess, he doesn’t really do a whole lot anymore due to his age.  He’s gotten very good at ignoring us, but that could just be from hearing loss.  Hank is my 5 year old pit bull.. and he’s the biggest love bug you’ll ever meet, seriously, he never. stops. licking!  He’s also a “donor dog”, who donates blood for dogs that need blood transfusions.  I’ve actually lost count of how many dogs he has helped over the years! *Take that stupid breed stereotype!*  Then there’s the 2 cats, Monroe & Murphy.. Monroe is 9 years old and is a retired blood donor, and Murphy is a 4 year old rambunctious kitty!  We’ve only had the rats a few weeks so we’re still working on forming a friendship.


Hank & Bobby looking festive!

I’m more of a TV/internet junkie than a gamer.  I love playing video games, but I just don’t have the time to play them like I used to.  My favorite shows are Supernatural & The Walking Dead.. total fangirl for Castiel & Daryl here! I’m a big kid at heart and love cartoons, Invader Zim being my favorite!  The X-men have held my interest since I was a little girl, and I’ve recently become a fan of the Avenger franchise.  I have to admit that I’ve never read any of the comics though (please don’t hate :-p).

I’m excited to be a part of this team and I’m looking forward to writing for & meeting all of you fellow geeks!
