Welcome to the personal site of Shawn Whitten. I live in Springfield, Missouri, USA and am glad you came to visit.

This site has been up since 8/2014. I have many other responsibilities, but intend to spend a bit of time posting an update here once in awhile.

In addition, I am involved in other web sites. Here is a list of some addresses you might like to try. See what you think and let me know. I want to work on something that is worth my time.

My dog Reagan

Submitted by Shawn Whitten

The best known pets are dogs.

Now there are many kinds of dogs. I have had a few of them over the past years, most of them have been mixed breed, one has been registered so was pure-breed.

I now have my favorite dog. It is a pure breed Irish Terrier. Her name is Reagan which is an Irish name that many of the females from that country have.

She was born in December 2014. Here she is a pup in February 2015.

If you came around, you would find that I have made progress on the master bedroom wing. No, it is not done. Yes, it is considerably more done than it was at the first of the year. The mud work in the master bedroom is done INCLUDING sanding! Wow.
