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, www.dogster.com 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.

Cheers,
Dogster

    Morning all.   Yay Christmas is finished.   Today... Mom is sitting on her butt and doing nothing.

    Walker so sorry Husis is like that... Some people get so wrapped in their own self that they forget other people even exist.    But if they need something they expect you to be right there to help.
    That is why mom rarely asks for anything from anyone.    Even when Dad is gone she does as much as she can by herself.  (* hugs *).

    As for the tree... Mom has a 7 ft that is prelit and comes apart...They are really easy LOL

    Thank you @Sandy_Kramer_etc for the hug :)  Yes husis does call or text and will ask for something and lately mommy says no. Its just small simple things. Like Aluminium Foil or Tape or thread. No to her because when husis needed these before mommy did give them,then when mommy needed them husis only had a super cheap thin foil.  So the giving of all we have is over. The grandsons are and will be fine. Husis still gets a very small amount of food stamps($200 some worth)  and her hubby does work and gets a pay check so no one will starve. She does stock up on things like there's no tomorrow also. It just gets irritating. You give your last of whatever and it never will be replaced or if it does by some miracle it is way substandard. Ok complaining over and thank you for listening BOL!!  We have done without many time so other's could have.

    Walker Mom... (* more hugs *).    Mom has a sister that is like that... borrows a lot of things, but never can return them or replaces it with something else that is not as good.    Then she spends a lot of money on things that she does not need... (* sigh *).. I guess some people just do not have their priorities straight.

    Anyway Mom says she will always be around to listen... It's one of the things she does best LOL

    Today mom cleaned out one of the medicine cabinets...OMD...She had like 3 boxes of pepto an 4 bottles of aspirin and I think 6 bottles of vicks vapor rub.   Anyway once she tossed all the really old stuff and combined everything else she had about half as much stuff as she had before.   She says if she can do the same thing through the rest of the house it will look a lot better LOL

    Hersey... MOM says she might be able to fit you into her schedule in about 3 years... She is thinking it will take that long to finish here LOL

    Today mom cooked a big chicken dinner while dad cleaned out the fancy inside tool box.   There again we had so many duplicated tools... Dad took the excess ones back out to his garage.. Says he will probably have to think about putting some stuff in a yard sale LOL

    Sounds good @Sandy_Kramer_etc ! We did get snow today and it was blowing an drifting! This is from 9AM!
    The snow has stopped. Hubro shoveled  and neighbor man Harold brought his snow blower by and did the side walks on bothe sides of the house (we live on a corner).
    This is from an email Pam of Pets That Love Fun asked mommy to post on FB for her-

    17 Jan 2019 -- Pam's Checkup

    Today was the second follow up appointment with Dr. Cheema, my brain surgeon. It did not go as I expected. After the first appointment I expected us to continue the discussion of targeted radiation to shrink the AVM https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arteriovenous_malformation in my brain and to start scheduling the procedure. However, after reviewing the MRI & MRA, he abruptly decided to postpone all treatment until September.

    He was unable to provide any information about the on going "Left Side Neglect" https://tactustherapy.com/what-is-left-neglect/ problem, the dizziness problem, or my dark mood problem and how any of it could be tied to the AVM or the damage caused by the hemorrhage. His only explanation for the delay was to allow more time for recovery before he intervenes with what he considers to be potentially damaging treatment that could add more damage to the existing situation.

    He bluntly stated that 80% of the people who sustained the level of damage that I had survived would not be sitting in his office talking to him. The inference being that they would either be dead or mentally incapacitated.

    The purposed course of action is now to wait until September. Then on the next visit he will setup a procedure for a cranial angiogram https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angiography… that will give him data on the status of the AVM. He will also be able to access the continuing symptoms at that time.

    The change of protocol was greatly upsetting as I was anticipating a near term treatment that would have eventually "sealed" the AVM permanently. Now I must deal with a long delay before this treatment even starts.

    The only conclusion I can draw at this time is that Dr. Cheema is being extremely cautious with treatment to avoid further damage to my brain. This is his way.. to "step back " then procedure slowly. its my brain he is in and i have to be grateful for that caution !

    @Sandy_Kramer_etc, my mommy's biggest problem is books.  We have bookcases all ovfur the place, and they're all full, and then the books start getting stacked on tables and floors and all.  Mommy couldn't read (or re-read) all of them in a hundred years. But she thinks she might! 
    @Walker_Alexandria, I hope your weather calms down.  It sure looks pretty, though!

    Morning all

    Mom says we have not had fun with the confuser lately... first the screen broke on her chromebook so she had to use her old slow laptop...Then she got it fixed only to have the internet start acting up... Mom thinks it has to do with the bad weather.   Hopefully it will stay up long enough to say hi to everyone

    Good morning everyone.   Mom says she thinks all the confuser issues are fixed.   Freaking cold here this morning... but the sun is shining so at least everything looks pretty outside.   Mom says today is fend for yourself day.   eat what you want when you want, but for some reason when I told her I wanted chicken she said no.   I am really confused.   I guess the rule only applies to 2 leggers LOL

    Good morning all

    OMD it is so cold.  Fend for yourself day went as expected.   We did not get to fend for ourselves,  but we did get extra snacks so it was good LOL

    Mom says she now either has bad allergies of a cold... she says the worse part is the burning itchy eyes that she just can't make feel better.   Some of her eye drops even seem to make it worse.

    Anyway Hope you are all having a good day
