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.
Had to put my pet to sleep this week.
I joined this group because I did a Google Search on the fact that I miss my pet and Dogster had some articles. I wanted to reply to some posts but I wasn't a member so I joined. I dispensed with the details because I now feel what's the point.
I had to put my best friend Hershey down this week. I am suffering extreme grief that I didn't do more. More tests, more remedies. He was 16 years and 8 months. He hasn't walked in 8 months. I carried him everywhere to have him do his business. I cleaned him constantly. Just last weekend he stopped eating and could not keep anything down. He couldn't keep his head up. I thought it it was the right time to say goodbye but now I am so sad.
I mainly miss him the most. I wish this grief would pass.
