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.


Why does the page still show my big boy's birthday instead of his passing day?

Cancer stole our beautiful boy Jakeup from us 8 days before his 10th birthday. I updated his profile page showing that he is no longer with us, and added the date. I also added his story to his biography, but the profile page still displays his birthday. How do I correct that?

    I am sorry to hear of your boy's passing. Dogster keeps the date of birth on the page, they just no longer keep the age in years under the photo. You will receive a notice on the date of his passing, and I believe he will also be in a special memorial stroll on that date as well, but the date of the passing is not ever on the page.
