Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

    I've heard of this before. They are not naturally marked like a panda, they are dyed to look like that. Here's an article: Panda Dog

    Panda Dog Turns Heads In Tokyo-A cute pooch has people on the streets of Tokyo doing a double-take -- it looks just like a panda. It's actually a dog that's dyed to look like a panda. The poodle-Maltese cross was named "Columbo" after the American television detective by pet shop owner Kensuke Hirakawa after he rescued the dog from being destroyed. At first, the dog was aggressive and would not stop barking. Its left hind leg is stiff from a past break and all of its canine teeth have been extracted to prevent it from biting. But gradually, Columbo became tame. Three months ago he became a panda. His owner said dying the dog to look like a panda made sense, because it always had stains around its eyes. Columbo, who is naturally white, was dyed using a special hair dye for dogs that lasts about a month.This is the article. Poor little doggie they yanked out his teeth!!!!! Doesn't seem right:-k
