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.
Just curious to see how many of you know about the mutation and how many have actually had your pups tested?
Although research is still being conducted by WSU, it's been determined to affect 50% of Aussies, Mini Aussies, and Aussie mixes.
Samson just got his results back with a Mutant/Normal (so one gene is mutated and one is normal). That pretty much sealed the neutering deal (aside from other obvious reasons), and he gets snipped on Friday.
But I've discovered a lot of people are unaware about the gene mutation or the fatal effects it can mean, so I was curious how many of your dogsters are informed?
