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.
I just adopted a ten year old retired sled dog from a touring kennel in Colorado. Her name is Ginger (not terribly original, but it's what she already knows) and she's very sweet.
I just wanted to know, do any of you know the lifespan of these dogs? I'm sure it varies enormously, but considering that she's in good health, no arthritis or other movement problems,eats well, has plenty of energy for running, I hope that we will have more than just a couple years together.
Do any of you have a 14, 15, 16 and up husky to compare to?
I plan to be living with her on the oregon coast in a rural area, so I can give her plenty of exercise.
This dog-owning thing is new to me, I've never had one before, and I'm hopeful but a little apprehensive.
(as of right now we are still at the kennel and she is out on a 20-mile sled run with some clients. Lots of energy still!)
