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.

    I dont think that there is any particular reason why your dog digging to azalea roots. Dogs usually dig out of boredom, to cool off, for fun and sometimes to bury bones and toys. You can make a sandbox for your dog to dig in, to discourage him digging at the azalea roots cover the area around it with stones.

    Dogs are very scent-oriented, so there might be a rodent down there, or your dog prefers that particular plant. Try adding another azalea in a different place in the garden, and you will be able to tell if she's trying to get at something below, or that she just has a fondness for this particular plant! ^_^ While she herself might not be a digger, she might be from digging dog stock! ^_^
