What am I doing?

Welcome to Trial and Error Kennels

Many of my dogs names come from mythologies, something that's always been a passion of mine to study. The rest are, at best, random. At worst, a temporary name that stuck.

Dave used to be a girl, all of his puppies have two daddies.

Awards won by dogs in shows:
Völsung in Best Custom GSD:

Stolichnaya for Ugliest GSD 2010:


I am always willing to haggle on dogs I have for sale or items for sale in my shop.

I currently have three CAs:

Olli the Octopus
Trinket the Shiba

I'm always looking to buy:
Finnish Flags
GSD customs

About Me

You can call me ZJ. Or Zan or Zander or ZanderJames or Cthulhu. I have several other nicknames from close friends, from Goose to Zboo.

I'm 25 and am currently enrolled at U of Minnesota: Twin Cities, where I am getting a Scandinavian Studies Degree with an emphasis in Finnish and a minor in management. My goal in life is to live abroad someday, hopefully in Finland. It does mean I'm struggling my way through learning another language on my own, but it's exciting. I can say very little now in Swedish and Finnish, so if you are one of our players who can speak that, I'd love to have a short conversation. Very short.

I enjoy all sorts of things, specifically music, getting tattoos and piercings, history, mythology, baking, cooking and reading. I'm a geek and a metal head.

You will find I'm quite broadminded towards many viewpoints, however I do not allow intolerance.

I have a degree in History from UWMadison and have been a lifelong Wisconsin resident until now. That means just about everything you assume about Wisconsin applies to me.

On Alacrity I am excited to be involved with working on the Admin Team and I am in charge of the amazing group that is the site Newbie Helpers. Previously I worked on the Newbie Helper team, both as a member and running it and I loved my time there. I've also spent a long time as a mod, and loved every minute of it, ups and downs. I've been on the site for well over two years and have seen a lot of changes.

I'm a longtime supporter of getting Shibas on Alacrity, since I first joined way back in the day.
