Arrival Story: Dad has always wanted a Great Dane. Mom has never had dogs and didn't "know how". Dad suckered her in to getting me. heehee! He showed mom the CUTEST puppy pics ever of me, and well... she caved in. I was born in Texas and flew to Minnesota when I was 8 weeks old. I have 7 kitty brofurs and sisfurs and I love them all, especially my bestest friend, Lily :) I am named after the city where mom was born; Berkeley, Calfornia.
A stunned and heartfelt WOW!! What an honor to wake up to! I really am surprised being that mom doesn’t take me to Dogster very often at all these days, BOL BOL! Thank you HQ for this terrific honor!
I guess I’ll start by composing a diary entry… my first in nearly three years! My family and I took a break from Catster/Dogster following their cross country move in 2010 and then struggling through the pains of a very demanding new job. JOB?! Hmmmph. Dogster is waaaaay more important!
We started becoming active again only just recently…. Mainly for my sick brother, Poo. We’d forgotten what fun and how much support and love there is here. Poo has kind of taken the spotlight for all of us here, and that is okay. So I will write about him and say I love him so much and wish nothing more for him to be better. Unfortunately he won’t… so we are doing the best for him to keep him comfortable and happy, and to be sure he gets all of the nutrition he can get along with his medicine. I love Poo. Maybe you could stop by his page and say hi to him, I don’t mind :)
Goodness I AM stunned. I am on the front page, I have lots of Pup Pal requests, pmails and friends are sending me gifts. Thank you, friends, thank you Dogster! I love you all…. My sister Eve and my brother Poo taught me a very special word:
Dogster has managed to create an invisible rosette!
I’m stumped as to how they’ve achieved this. I’m wondering if any of my friends can help me. I sent my goodest friend MISS DIXIE MONROE a beach ball rosette the other day and thank goodness I checked her page to see if it got there (as I usually do) Well, the beachball wasn’t there!! I couldn’t see it, nor could Miss Dixie!! But you CAN see it in my "sent gifts" box on my page. Here is where I could use your help. Can you let me know if you can see the beach ball I sent on her page?? Just click on her name here: MISS DIXIE MONROE I sent HQ a note to this effect, and this is the response I got:
Try this little trick that usually works for this sort of thing. If the page you're seeing for another pet isn't showing everything it is supposed to (like a star/rosette or your pet's thumbnail as a Friend) or it's still showing the thumbnail for a deleted Friend, use the Leave a Treat/Bone feature to add a treat/bone to their page. That will force the Catster and/or Dogster server to recache the page and you should see everything that's supposed to be on the page.
You can also use the leave a treat/bone approach on your own pet's page that isn't showing a picture or gift correctly. Re-caching your pet's page should also fix any broken image thumbnail pics of your pet elsewhere on the site (a Friend's page, another pet's corral, the thumbnail for your pet in the forums, or the thumnbail for your pet on its group page).
If neither of the above tricks work for you, Meow back at us and we'll work on the page from this end. We don't mind doing the re-cache for you, but in the amount of time it would take you to write out a request and hear back from us, you could probably have this fixed with one of the above tricks. Besides, giving any cat or dog a treat is lots of furry fun anyway!
Well, I tried these tricks and it didn’t work. So it looks like I’ll be “meowing” (BOL BOL) back to Dogster to tell them that I’m not the only one who can’t see it.
I’m writing this as a heads up so that any gifts that you send SHOULD be accounted for! I love giving gifts and feel terribly if by some glitch, the gift does not make it to our friends pages.
