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.


If it's not one thing, it's another

Gypsy Road is heading to the vet this afternoon. He's been hanging his head down, walking slowly and barely jumping up on the furniture. He is eating, drinking, and peering normally though. The vet says he could have some pain in his back and that dogs do hold their heads down when that happens. He is ten years old. So between that and his anal sac issue, we decided to call. So he's going in this afternoon. He already had an appointment scheduled for Thursday too. We could use all the prayers possible. Thank you.

    Gypsy Road sending you prayers and hope everything is ok|:||:||:||:| please let us know what the vet says|:||:| I am not trying to scare you whatsoever, but when Peter had his IVDD/Cervical surgery, he was holding his head down like that and could not turn his neck at all, not even to look at me...when I tried to pick him up he cried out and I rushed him to the vet and they referred me to the special-ist that did surgery that same day. I hope this is not the case for Gypsy|:||:|we are saying prayers for you sweety|:||:| P.S. Peter has anal gland issues too so we understand|:||:||:|
