I'm a PhD student at University of Montana beginning this August.
I tend to be quite busy, but I love reading, knitting, playing the guitar, singing, and cooking if I'm stuck indoors, while hiking can be a favorite pastime no matter the temperature. I tend to pack light whenever possible, but have found on occasion needing to pack more if there are events that call for it.
I have a wonderful 8 year old Papillon I recently rescued named Happy. She is extremely sociable and friendly toward all animals - she's very well behaved. She is well behaved off leash, but I respect public leash laws with her. She does not chase cats and only barks at a very low volume when being defensive of me (i.e. when people approach me while I'm sleeping). She is very house trained and requires grass in order to use the bathroom or else she will hold it until she is crying and panicking - I would much prefer if this never happens after finding out the hard way she refuses to use bare ground.
I look forward to exploring new places and can't wait to meet new people!
