You got brothers DD? I went to school with a guy named Jeff that looks a bit like you. He let me use an old drivers license as a fake ID, and it worked despite that fact that I outweighed him by maybe 200lbs.

WWF was in the area and we were stopping through really early in the morning. Andre the Giant and his peeps stopped in the place and wanted it to themselves so he bought lbreakforst for everyone in the place.

Cool- I was curious, she def looks like she's a mix of some sort.
I have two rescue wolf hybrids and they're AWESOME animals, they had a bunch of pups 6 months ago and I have kept two of the pups. We live on 8 acres so its more doable.
I'll probably wind up only being able to keep one of the pups though, theyre a handful.
