Becky works with her brother at Mark Porter's Greenhouse and Nursery in Fayetteville GA. Doug has been a registered nurse for the past 8 years and is now in the process of a career change. We live with our 3 dogs, our "kids" rather, Freckles, Zack and B.G. Our time together is sometimes restricted due to conflicting work schedules and other commitments. When we do have time together we like to spend it traveling in the mountains of North Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee. Our hobbies include photography, hiking and camping. Becky also likes to garden and Doug likes to build webpages and learn graphic design.
As you may have guessed we are very fond of our dogs and dogs in general. We found the following list of things you can learn from dogs in "Country Magazine"...
One of our dogs is a Rottweiler. Her name is B.G. and came to us as a neglected stray. We have found that the breed has a unearned reputation as a viscous and dangerous dog. Much to the contrary, Rottweilers are a loyal and loving animals when raised in a gentle and loving home. Click on the banner to go to the Southern States Rottweiler Rescue web page to learn more about these wonderful dogs and how you can either adopt or donate to their cause.
We also are very much nature enthusiast. We encourage recycling and conservation of energy, and resources. We like to learn as we travel. Much of our time traveling in the mountains is spent as an educational experience.
