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.


Am I a Kelpie?

Sorry for posting yet another one of these, but I think I am a Kelpie and here in the States it is NOT easy to know for sure. I was adopted from a home that couldn't handle me, and I'm so happy where I am now! I sure do look a lot like the pictures I see of Kelpies, but would love some opinions. Thanks!

    I see a lot of similarities between Layla and Rigby. Not that I can confirm Rigby is a kelpie either, but I think it's safe to say she's at least part :) How big is Layla?

    She is about 1.5 feet tall at the shoulders, and weighs about 45lbs. From what I have read this is on the larger side for a kelpie, but still within the range.

    If she isn't a Kelpie, I will eat my hat.
