Geary & Danice!

I think you will find there are lots of dog lovers in TV, and a few not so much, but like any other place you would choose to live! Most are very friendly with pets and there are 2 dog parks in TV. I am currently just starting to build, so am not there quite yet. But I am bringing my Jack Russell and Shih Tzu. We could perhaps garner a few tips from you!! I am certain you will be most welcome. As an FYI, there is a restriction as to the number of pets you may have (two) but you may bring "your family" with you. You just would not be able to replace them as they depart. Not sure if you were aware of this? Thank you as well for serving our country and there are lots of vets in TV too. I am sure you both will fit right in!
I am from Highland Park, IL! Hope to see you in the future!
Carol

Another dog face adorer here. Used to show and breed Afghans (there may be a dumber breed out there, but not sure which). Really did love them, though. As you were told, you can bring 'em all with you but no replacing once one is gone until you're down to two. That may be a little hard on you being that you show dogs.

But welcome aboard! It's hard to hate TV and I'm sure you'll fit right in.

We have an Irish and an English Setter. Our English Setter is from a top breeder in Washington State and our irish Setter came from an abusive breeder in Washington State and has is small, sweet but anxious, not a show Irish, that is for sure. I love Setters, cannot wait to see yours! I have had Irish Setters since I was a teenager for the most part.

We have had three Irish Setters. I love the breed and think of them as "my" breed. I miss them very much. They are in Cookie Heaven now romping around and eating as many cookies (dog treats) as they want.

Welcome to TOTV. You'll find lots of dog lovers in TV. There is an excellent huge private dog park here where you'll meet great dog people.

We are also lovers of those with four legs, furry bodies, wet noses and slobbery kisses. We have 3 pooches, labs and a bichon, so I am glad to hear that I can bring all 3. I did not know about that rule.
