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.
Little Nemi was struck by a car last Friday after We took him to the park during a satellite dish install but when we let him out into the yard we didn\'t realize a gate was left open by one of the Installers and he ran into the street. Luckily, my neighbor who hit him helped us get him to the vet.
He has a compressed vertebrae in his rearmost quarters and he is having surgery today to move the vertebrae in place and hopefully relieve the pressure on his spinal cord. We are hoping the best that he doesn\'t become paralyzed and everything heals correctly. Surgery is new to us and a bit of a mystery. Right now he can stand and his tail is functional.
I hope we are doing the right thing for you little buddy! The whole surgery vs. non-surgery was a gut feeling we thought first no surgery but once it was explained in detail we think it would be a good shot to a more pain free life in the future. Luckily, both the surgeon and th vet said that the injury is far enough back where it missed causing major neurological damage.
GET WELL AND WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
