Will This Plot Ever Twist Or Will I Still Resist?

...I'm playing the part of a Lost Realist

12 July

So, my name is Krystal. I'm a born Mountaineer: rugged, independent, and strong-willed. I can do and will do anything I put my mind to, no matter how impossible it may seem. I love to prove people wrong who doubt my abilities.

I'm 27 years young but I am wise beyond my years. I've seen a lot and I've been through so much you wouldn't believe me if I told you. I live my life with no regrets.

I am a 2010 graduate from West Virginia University. I have my Bachelors in Animal Science. I've been a Vet Tech for three years and I just came back from grooming school in October. I REALLY love grooming and for the first time in my life, I'm really good at something I love.

Also, June 2014 I accepted an internship training police/military dogs! It's been an adventure so far!

Animals are my passion and my life is built around them. My career(s) are centered around taking care of them, inside and out. Dogs are my favorite, but I love them all. I'm an equestrian as well and I love to ride. I mainly ride English, but you hand me the reins to anything and I'll hop on, Western, English, or bareback.

I share my life with an oddity of animals:

I rescued Tiger July 2007 from the streets of Keyser, WV. He was half-feral, very sick, and covered in sores. The saying 'cats chose their owners' is really true. I was recovering from the loss of my Dalmatian Jake and had vowed I would never own another animal. I found Tiger starving to death on my front porch and he hasn't left my side since.

Tiger truly has a personality I've never seen in a cat. He is very intelligent and cunning. He's also a Polydactyl and has two extra toes on his front paws and one extra on his hind. The last two years we've been battling FLUTD and he's my little miracle kitty.


Neko is my 'heart dog'.
I rescued Neko from a bad situation January 2009. My life fell to pieces thanks to a horrible, abusive relationship and I was struggling with everything. During that time, Neko took my mind off of everything bad. He's saved my life three times by protecting me from people with malicious intent.

In June 2010, Neko passed his AKC Canine Good Citizen test and became a TDI Therapy Dog!

Neko is also trained as a service dog and knows a vast variety of commands. His favorite is retrieving items that I drop to put them back in my lap. A favorite of his fans is "Angry Face", which you will find in my Icons.

Not pictured (yet) is my half Arabian/Paint Storm, four rats, and Onyxia, my three-legged bearded dragon.

There is also a silly boy I call my Other Half.

His name is William.

I met William in 2006 and we started dating May 16, 2009.
We were married May 31st, 2012.

I love him more than life itself. He completes me and is my sun in an otherwise dark world.

My journal is my outlet. I ramble about my life, jobs, my friends, post a lot of pictures of just about anything. Sometimes I'm harsh and judgmental, but hey. That's me.
