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.


Poor Marlowe Got Double-Whammied (nothing too serious)

Marlowe\'s been out to dog shows two weekends in a row, and I woke up Sunday morning to \"cough...cough...cough, cough, cough, RETCH!\" Yup. Kennel cough. And yes, he is UTD on his bordatella vaccine. :? To top that off, we were playing a rather vigorous game of fetch a couple of weeks ago, and he went in for his characteristic home plate slide through the leaves to get the ball. And came out limping. After two weeks of some days acting like his foot was fine, and other days favoring it, I finally had the vet look at it when I took him in for the kennel cough. $100+ later, he\'s taking 2 kinds of antibiotics, has pain meds for his foot, and is on bed rest for 2 weeks for a probable soft tissue injury. :-O My very active, intelligent, bratty 13-month-old retriever puppy is on doctor\'s orders for no running, no jumping, and no walks except for potty breaks on leash. We need POTP, not for him, but for my sanity! :)) I think this calls for a shopping trip to any store that carries puzzle toys. And for me to find ways to improve my karma. ;)
