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.


Friends success?

''Your Pup Pal request has been accepted. teddy is now friends with Aster and Tux.'' I don't know how other things are working, but I received an email announcing the above. I still haven't received any pup pal requests, notices of my answer being chosen as best, or any other emails for over a month.

    I was happy yesterday when an answer went through the first time I submitted but my luck ran out on the second one. I got a pup pal request through email but nothing else is coming through.

    Yeah, same here. Every so often I get an answer thru on the first try, & sometimes when I click on my family page, through my account, a total stranger's dogs are staring at me! Very few notices in e mail also.

    Same troubles here. I gather it's not just my hotmail account, then? Best idea is to contact HQ if you want a more clear explanation.

    There's been a lot of site problems lately. My first reaction was that I've not had any problems with the Pup Pal or email features, but then who knows....maybe I have and I just don't realize it. As for the best answers notifications, I just figured I hadn't gotten any Best Answers in a long time. I got curious and looked up my zealie history and saw that I've had several just this month, so clearly those emails are failing. It's very frustrating. I've emailed HQ twice about the problems on Answers (multiple questions and problems posting answers) and they said they are working on it, which I'm sure they are. Hopefully things will be sorted out soon!
