    I thought this might be a decent subject for a thread seeing as how many people come to this site with the negative light about the dogs their owers, and their owners professions...most seem to think this is a breed where the owners are poor hicks or ghetto drug dealers with little to no education, and this is not the truth at least in my experience this is not the case so I thought it would be a good idea for a thread if everyone shared what they do for a living, and what education they have, and how long they have been doing their profession for. OK everyone go for it :)

    Me I am a welder have been for 4 years also have plenty of experience in construction, structural fitting of all sorts. Welding is my main trade and by far my favorite. I work for a very strong and growing company in South Dakota.

    I'm just an average Joe I guess. I don't really have a trade per se. I was trained in law enforcement & security, but don't practice it any longer due to my seizure disorder. The jobs I held were as a Federal police officer in the USAF (SP) & after I got out I held various security jobs, one working for Weyerhauser, another for the public school system. I currently work as a receptionist at an automotive repair shop. High school grad & earned some community college credits while I was in the USAF. I don't live in a fancy house & I don't live in a good neighborhood. I gave that up for my dogs.

    That's me.

    Boy, some of you guys have some fabulous jobs! In ways I wish I could have a better job. LE/Security is my thing, but once they find out you have something like a seizure disorder, they don't want you. Sooo, I got hired on where I work now. It's not glamorous & it doesn't pay a lot, but they're very understanding about my condition & I get to take my puppies to work. :)

    i've been doing insulation on and off since i was 18 and when i was off i went to school and got a certification in heavy equipment(had 1 job doing this but didn't like it). then the jobs in my field went scarce, so I then received a job erecting and tearing down scaffolds, in which i did until some shutdowns came my way in my field of expertise and now i'm on vacation.

    I might fit more in the poor hick category but I am what I am.Lived and worked on a dairy/beef cattle farm all my life,got kicked out of school in the 10th grade,got my G.E.D. 6 months later.Also scored in the top 2% in the state of Missouri on my school test scores though so brains wasn't my problem,just had a little problem with following the rules,LOL.Can't say I have a great job or make a lot of money but I do what I want to do for the most part.I work on a farm,got a nice family,a few dogs,some cattle and no real boss or 9-5 job to answer to everyday.Happiness means more to me than money.Some people might think it's pretty lame but it's what I like.:)
