Hi everyone! My name is Sarah and my beautiful Staffy is Barney, pedigree name Hooch Turner Red. He's the love of my life. We are from the UK but we are living in Saudi Arabia due to my husbands job. Its very hot here right now so we have to make do with night walks but Barney seems to enjoy it. He's turning 9 years old in September and is going very grey, which breaks my heart. He's the most affectionate dog and follows me everywhere. It's very restricting living here in Saudi so I'm hoping to make some new friends to chat to. I'm not sure how to post a pic on here yet but I'm working on it. Hopefully chat soon!
Regards
Sarah & Barney

Hello and welcome Sarah and Barney
my son worked in Adu Dhabi until recently and I have friends who live over there.
You must upload some pics, using the 6th icon in the reply box is easiest , looking forward to seeing pics Barney x

Hello everyone, thank you for such a warm welcome! I'm just trying out posting a photo but not sure if it will work! I've got a photo bucket account and have copied and pasted in but a link only comes up, not the actual picture. Any advice? Using the 6th icon doesn't work, I'm using a mac, does it make any difference? Sorry, I'm usually really good with IT!

Hi Jo,

Thanks for the nice welcome. Now I've got to grips with posting pics on here, I'm on it!
Am I replying in the correct way by using the quote button? Never used a forem before!

Yes, I live here in Saudi with my husband, he's a bodyguard and is out a lot, so I get bored! Not much to do here and women aren't allowed to drive - I do meet friends for some retail therapy though. It's strange as we have Peacocks next door to Gucci! Tiffany's next door to BHS!

Chat soon, I've got pics to post!

Hi Linda,

It makes total sense but when I click the 6th icon, file then choose the pic, when I hit load, it just hangs there for ages and nothing happens. Am I being too impatient?!

Thanks!

Hi sarah and welcome to the forum.
Barney is such a handsome lad. It must be interesting to live in Saudi Arabia.
How come women aren't allowed to drive? omg
Is it a cultural thing?

Can't wait for more pics of your gorgeous boy xx

Hi Alex,

Thanks for that. He's the biggest Staffy I've ever seen!

Yeah, we are but mere women here. We don't have many rights. Not allowed to drive, have to wear a Harry Potter cloak everywhere, not allowed to speak to any men other than family when out etc. But it's their culture and I respect it. It's not bad here, just a little restricting. Very interesting at times and sometimes slightly scary. But the wages are out of this world!!! We are all here for the same reason.
It's different anyway.

Thanks again! x

That's amazing the cultural differences from country to country.
Think I would find it hard to adjust lol as I don't like being told what to do!
Love the last pic of him chilling out
