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.


(please answer) BSL is like...

My dad is already against BSL, but when I told him that labeling an entire breed of dog as killlers just because some of them bite people is like labeling an entire race of people as killers just because some of kill people. Then my dad said you can't compare apples to oranges. My dad says things sometimes that could be considered comparing apples to oranges! So, why can't I compare "apples to oranges" when I'm talking about how stupid BSL is then?

    Honestly, I see your side and not his on that. Racial profiling is just that reguardless of species. Not to mention, why can't we compare apples to oranges, they are both fruit after all. This answer most likely doesn't help. But just wanted to say I see it your way.

    I would think MOST of us on Dogster will agree that BSL is exactly like racism. Maybe your Dad is old school and just thinks Dogs/Man should be on different levels. Dogster people tend to think- how we treat dogs should be how we treat man. Meanig Racism/breedism is bad. (Yikes I hope that made sense)
