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.

    What about a pet portrait or having jewelry made from one of the dog's tags?

    I know if I lost my dog (and I did lose my favorite dog EVER about a year ago...hardest sudden loss ever by far...), it'd be great to have a portrait maybe painted or drawn. Jewelry with a name or memory engraved might be good too.

    well, since she had lost her dog, DO NOT get her another dog. It will just remind her of emmy, but does she want like an iphone or something? Or something she REALLY wants? make it have something to do with emmy, like if you get her an Ipod or iphone, get a personalized case with emmy on it. Or if she wants a balance beam, make it say emmy on the side. ( I hope emmy is ur dog's name! )

    I'm so sorry to hear that, how old is your daughter? Getting an age on her would make it more easy to establish an appropriate gift. Thought the previous commenter had some good ideas.

    You can probably give her a painting of her dog and her and placed in her room and later on, when it would be the right time, you can get her a new dog.
  • I had my dog Chichi for 17 years and he passed. I did the portrait, have a beautiful grave sight but with time the feeling of comfort I had previously felt from these is fading. It is odd to be writing this today because I was shopping on line and just ordered a ring in my mothers memory but after I started to think about it I realized it represents all the people, pets, friends, any living form to me. It is a a simple stainless steel band ring, similar to your basic plain wedding band but it has one gold tear on the band and inside it is engraved "until we meet again". Since it is stainless steel it will stand up to wear and tear along time which is my plan to wear it until I meet those who has passed over again. I am a person who suffered great losses in my life especially my Chichi and Mom. I would put the name of the website but it may be a violation. Starts with over... hope that's not a violation
