  • Intro to Christa Leyland

    Hi I've been around here for a little while and just now posting a bio so here goes...

    I've loved animals sence I can remember and have had many diffrent amimals along the way:
    horses, goats, chickes, ducks, mice, rats, hamsters, gunie pigs, dogs, cats, neuts, frogs... the list goes on.

    Well my life changed alot sence my Dad left because he never like the animals and absolutly refused to get reptiles... so as soon as he was gone I got my first ball python Avalon. After that it blossemed into a huge hobbie. We also aquired many dogs and cats too.

    I am currently going to Missouri Western State University, majoring in Biology with a medical intrest. I love to traveling and going camping, and swimming. I am a night owl!!! LOve music mainly metal and rock (Lamb of god, system of a down, tool, Queen, nine inch nails, incubus ect...) I do have some ink.

    I have right now ball pythons, western hognoses, corns, a turtle, a community fish aquarium, beardies, leos, and of course cresties, and a U henklie, oh and and gargoyle. I also have some furrie animals too, two shi-zus, an italian greyhound, a retired greyhound, and a great pyrenees. Along with a sphynx cat (hairless) and some commen loose stray and taken in cats. Oh and a ferret named leanard, love him.


    Here's me and my friend Jenny, I'm on the left.

      Hi Christa!

      Oh, WOW... you have a Sphynx? I've always wanted one of those!

      It's good to finally put a face with the name.

          My cat is hilarious!!! He keeps us entertained all the time, he will let you know if there is a bug very loudly. And if we give the dogs treats he's up there begging just like them. Oh, and because he doesn't have hair he will crawl under blankets and if you are wearing a big hoodie he will crawl under that too. It looks like you are very pregnant. He gives me so much enjoyment. Definatly get one if you ever get the chance.
          Thanks,

                Hey, welcome to the forums!

                How do your retired greyhound and yourr IG Get along with ll those other animals?? We have one Italian greyhound right now who is good with our cats, but in the future we want to adopt a retired greyhound, and I have heard a lot about possible problems with their prey drive and having smaller pets in the house. Your menagerie sounds awesome.

                  The greyhounds do fine with all the other animals. Andrea is even afraid of the ferret, and will run away from him. The rescue group I got him from was very good about testing and making sure that our dog was small animal safe.But not all greyhounds should be placed in a home with small animals, the rescue group should be resposible and test the dogs before adoption. Andrea had a broken leg when we got him. So we had alot of time to adjust to our house before he could run. It's like our own race track at home when they both get to going, except a hundred times better because there is no abuse or missuse any more to him. Sadie our IG is such the little mother to every one always taking care and protecting them. Here's a pic of her, she not a good example of the standard of the breed.

                        He is too as big as Jax, he has to be as tall! And at least as lanky in size...he'll soon outweigh Jax though. Bwhahahahaha...

                        By the way, those photos don't do Christa justice. She's much cuter in person! And much more annoying! ( j/k )

                            Oh and Jessie is still going through the puppie phase and is quite lanky and he does still have a ways to go. I think he is as tall as Jax but not as heavy, we sure have our hands full with him.
