Hello everyone!
« on: December 19, 2018, 07:56:29 am »
Hi everyone!
Newbie here, so I wanted to get you all an introduction! :)

Fursona:

FarFar

Welsh Corgi, black and white, with green highlights… and a tail!

Anthro canine….sometimes feral

Male

Mischievous, playful, respectful of others, active.

Likes Coffee/Pizza, travel, the outdoors, anything canine, and all forms of relaxation!

OC..

I believe that I started being a furry at a very young age. I remember going to movies and seeing stuff on TV where animals were cast in a anthro way. I enjoyed those characters more then the others. I was drawn to the canine/dog characters and found myself more often then not wanting to be like them. Even had thoughts of asking my parents/relatives to make me some sort of outfit so I can go to the movies in it! Guess it was the start of wanting to be a fursuiter! LOL! Of course, I never asked them. I was surrounded by all things dog/canine growing up. In activities, friends, media, etc. Still am. Everything dog, everywhere. My work, my out of work activities, etc

Morphed into the scifi, fantasy worlds when life got to be difficult. Was involved in different aspects of scifi; went to a few conventions, did the cosplay thing, wrote a bit of fanfic. Saw a few furries at the events; thought it was a good thing, but I was too involved with scifi to look much more on it. Did some of the fantasy stuff; played a bit with artwork, etc. Eventually, the demands and stress of life made me put all of that in the back of the bus and I focused for the most part on my work. No time for anything else. Five/six years ago, things crashed down around me and I developed some health issues. One of the things that it made me realize is that I was missing out on much of the fun in life. Looking inward, I felt that my affiliation with animals in general and dogs/canines in particular was something that held me up during the difficult times. I feel that embracing being furry is a natural extension to all of this, plus I enjoy the freedom of expression that this culture has….so here we are!!

I like the outdoors, playing table and lawn games, and most things scifi/fantasy. I do like writing and I’m starting to get interested in creating artwork as it pertains to anthro.

IC..

FarFar enters room:  BARK, BARK, BARK!!! Hello everyone!! *wags tail in a happy manner* Hope you don’t mind me coming in! *trots across room* I looked this place up and it seemed to be a good, fun place to be! *jumps onto a chair*. I brought some treats to share! *holds out a bag of peanut butter cups*. I hope to be able to make some friends here and that we can just hang out as furries! *looks around room* Hmmmmmmm….nobody here at the moment. *jumps off of chair and heads to door*. No biggie! I’m sure I will meet up with some of you sometime. In the meantime….

WAGS and WOOFS to you all!!   FarFar

Hello and welcome! You've jumped the gun on introducing yourself, which always a good thing. Here is something to give you a few rules of the forums and some of the resources available to you (aka, the Mod Post of Doom)

Here are some introductory questions you can answer if you like:
Mind telling us how you happened upon our friendly community?
How long have you been a furry / known about the fandom?
Do you have a fursona? If so, what is it?
What interests you about the anthropomorphic (furry) fandom?

Hope you enjoy your stay! Be prepared for an onslaught of warm welcoming hugs and pounces from fellow members! If you don't want the hugs, just let us know and your wish will be respected! Click on any of the gold-colored links above or below for further information. ;)

We also have an IRC chatroom you may want to join. Just enter your fursona name and start chatting! If you need help on accessing the Furtopia IRC, please see this thread here: How to use an IRC client

Please take the time to read the Furtopia Forum Posting Rules. This is a PG rated “family friendly” forum.

I'm glad you've decided to take time for the more important things in life. It's a page out of the dog handbook, I know because by dog gave it to me. I hope you enjoy Furtopia. I know I look forward to seeing you around the forums!

...I should probably put that page back in the handbook. That might be why nobody else reads it  :-[

Hey Varg! *wags his tail*

Yeah, I'm glad that I decided to take time for the important things in life. So many of them, and being furry is now a big part of it all for me.

To get to your questions:

I came upon Furtopia a few years ago when I started to become more "serious" about becoming a furry lifestyler.

I feel like I have been a Furry most of my life; just have not been active in the fandom until recently. Have known about the fandom for years.


Fursona?......Corgi! *Bark Bark Bark!* More details are in my intro!

I like the anthro fandom for its freedom of expression and for its creativity. Oh, and most important, for its fun! I love all sorts of animals (esp canines), and I enjoy seeing the different forms that they can take in an anthro way.

Looking forward to seeing you around! *wags tail goodbye*

Remember when you pay your Furtopia medical bill, they only take Old Rabbit's Cookies for payment, no personal checks! I have a stash of cookies here somewhere.

Why worry, if you don't catch the dirt bike, it will fall to the ground and, since its made of dirt, the bike will just crumble and make a mess on the floor.  Just sweep it up.

And listen to Varg.  Someone stole my  "A Dog's Handbook to Living a Perfect Life" and replaced it with the "Human Handbook of Dread and Despair".  Trust me, the illustrations in the Dogs book are much better. And the pages smell.  You know, like scratch and sniff stickers.
If at first you don't succeed, you have the diode backwards, again! -- Me.

I don't have a stash of cookies just yet. I may have to borrow some of yours for the time being until I get my own!

Sweep? I will just roll in the dirt!  :D

I'm sure I have a copy of "Dog's Handbook to Living a Perfect Life" somewhere. Will have to dig it back up so I can look at the illustrations and scratch and sniff the stickers!
