This is the journal of Sparky. I am a long-haired German Shepherd domestic canine wearing a spiked black leather collar and dog tag. I have been known in the furry fandom for over a decade as a canine named Sparky and have been performing in fursuits and mascoting long before I was part of the fandom. It remains a well enjoyed hobby of mine to this day. I currently wear a fursuit of my fursona. Sparky version 2 was built in October 2008.
