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.

    It depends on how bad it is. Think about it. It may be time for her to be PTS and then it may not. Could she still live a decent, at least half-way painless life? If so, then try to find a nice home for her. If not, then you know... You may not be able to take care of her now, but someone else probably could. Dogster is full of dog-lovers and if someone is looking for a dog I'm sure that they can take care off your dog. You could also place her with a rescue group if you have trouble finding her a home any other way. Rescue groups have the dog stay in a loving foster home until they find it a forever home. Or, sometimes the foster home ends up adopting the dog. Hope that your dog will be fine, and praying for you as well.
