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.

Cheers,
Dogster

After all those years I enjoyed having them by my side as best companions in good and bad times, friends who would listen and understand, friends who never let me down, friends whose love are undoubted... the parting is just so bitter and unbearable.

    Know one knows... "I FANCIED THAT I HEARD HIM SAY "DEAR LORD THY WILL BE DONE," FOR ALL THE JOYS THIS PUP WILL BRING, THE RISK OF GRIEF WE'LL RUN. WE'LL SHELTER HIM WITH TENDERNESS, WE'LL LOVE HIM WHILE WE MAY, AND FOR THE HAPPINESS WE'VE KNOWN, FOREVER GRATEFUL STAY. BUT SHOULD YOU CALL HIM BACK MUCH SOONER THAN WE'VE PLANNED, WE'LL BRAVE THE BITTER GRIEF THAT COMES AND TRY TO UNDERSTAND. IF BY OUR LOVE WE'VE MANAGED, YOUR WISHES TO ACHIEVE IN MEMORY OF HIM WE LOVED, TO HELP US WHILE WE GRIEVE. WHEN OUR FAITHFUL BUNDLE DEPARTS THIS WORLD OF STRIFE, WE'LL HAVE YET ANOTHER PUP, AND LOVE HIM ALL HIS LIFE." Taken from "Lend a Pup, author unknown

    But oh the parting is should not be bitter but bittersweet because the love & memories we hold in our hearts will temper the pain...So long as we remember they never really die...So long as we shed a tear whether in sadness or in happiness & so long as our hearts warm at remembering, their garden in our soul will be nourished & will flourish & thrive.
