The reason I have not written a diary lately is because Mommy called AT#&T to upgrade to a faster Internet service. They putit up the next day. This was a problem because the new modem had not had time to arrive. In fact, after more than a week, it still hasnot arrived in the mail. We were without Internet for several days, and even lost the landline telephone for a day!
I would like to conpawutulate my pal, Zoe, for being a diary pick today. I also want to thank Dogster for choosing my diary as a diary pick today!
I have not written since the sad announcement by dogster HQ that the community area will be shut down. I find this very sad, but it does prove my point that birds have taken over HQ--as I've suggested in past diaries. Who but a bird brain would shut down the one aspect of dogster that we dogs actually loved. Even my humans are upset over dogster demise, and I use the word demise because ifSayMedia thinks they will receive more advertising revenue when most dogs don't come to the site anymore, they have even smaller brains than birds. Since advertisers base the amount they are willing to pay on how many views the site attracts, I think they will be doing good to get a nickel an ad! I get so sick of reading about how people &companies have to have a "brand" identity. It seems to me that dogster was the best community on the net. I've made many pals that I hope I can continue to be friends with after dogster is no more. I do appreciate all the good times, but I feel like HQ hAs bitten us in the heart. Many of us dogs have spent many hours adding content to the site (without pay I might add)and much of that content is why the people come back to this site. My humans seldom read the magazine section because we are too busy getting in touch with our pals. It is really a sad day because, if Say Media does discover its mistake, once the profiles and diaries are deleted, I don't think most of the humans will want to come back on here and repost our stuff. My Mommy has recommended dogster to strangers with dogs. I guarantee that she won't be recommending to any one in the future. You can continue to read my adventures at:
I would encourage all of my pals to go to BlogSpot and sign up for a FREE place to blog. by the way, I have an email address for my mail, and it is at firstname.lastname@example.org Please stay in touch. I hate the idea of losing so many of my good pals!
If only dogster were run by dogs instead of humans, this would have never happened. Letting the birds take over was a big mistake which I think the humans at SAyMedia will be kicking themselves over in the near future!
