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.
My dog is being misunderstood!What should I do?
Once every week I visit Petsmart and bring my dog Shadow.Many people especially children will walk up to Shadow and give him lots of pats.Once I explain what mix of breeds he his they immediatley walk away.Here is one example, a young girl about 8 years old asked to pet Shadow.I told her "Sure!".The mother of the girl asked me what breed of dog Shadow is.I explained he was a mixture of breeds including American Pit Bull Terrier.She said "I am very positive Pit Bulls are dangerous animals".Right after her statement the mother picked up her child and walked away.This has happened many times abd I am not sure how to react to this surcamstance.Has anyone ever experienced this or has any ideas to comfort the parents,children, and anyone who pats my dog Shadow?
