Arrival Story: I've owned Missy since she was an 8 week old baby. Her mum was a JRT and her dad a large sized Yorkie, both used as working dogs on the small farm they was living on. She was the smallest and most adorable puppy ever and her first ever outing turned almost into a day trip with all the attention she received. She attended Puppy Parties and Training classes through her puppyhood and excelled at her training, quickly working her way up to Teachers pet. She's very intelligent and enjoys using her brain.
Bio: Missy has the sweetest temperament and loves people, her ears go flat down on her head and her tail wags like there's no tomorrow. She's very strong willed at times and highly strung but it all adds to her character. As a pup i socialised her so well attending puppy parties every week and puppy training classes, she was so good with everything.....until she was attacked at a year old by another JRT this resulted in her being aggressive with other small dogs esp bitches. We've worked on her behaviour and have made some big improvements, but she'll never be a dog social dog and that's fine. She's a very much loved and spoilt princess!!
With the terribly sad news that Dogster is closing, we, like everyone, have been desperately searching for a new place to call "home". With little luck.
Nowhere compares to Dogster. The sites that have any kind of appeal to them are inactive or no longer managed. Doggyspace was one of those :( and that one was one that appealed to us the most.
Pets4Pals is the popular subject right now, but again, we're not really liking it and can't see ourselves there while the site remains so human friendly and FB like. Nope. I don't want mum joining in on MY site ;) With just a week to go before official launch it's looking unlikely that it will lose that look.
I joined a site called Yummypets.com. It was launched in France a couple of years ago, and then last year had it's Global/UK launch. Just little old me over there right now. My profile here ( but you won't be able to view it properly as it's set to private ). Ty is making me do all the hard researchin', but that's ok, I like to take charge and make the final decisions anyway ;) It's ok, but is not what most of this community are looking for. It doesn't have groups as we know them, but it has "teams". Though in these "teams" you can't start a separate thread to host fun and games. It's basically a place to gather with other like minded pals and post pictures. One positive is that the web manager we've been speaking to is very open to new ideas and suggestions and when we asked about customizable pages in the future we got this response back....
On your profile, you can already change your cover picture (not on mobile yet).
We really try to make the website evolve with the community, so if our members ask us to make profile pages more customizable, we will do our best to make them happy :)
We are already thinking of a way the community could participate in the portals more actively :)
Of course if you have suggestions or need help getting used to the network let me know, I’ll be happy to help!
That's promising to hear.
At the moment you can upload pictures, have a small bio section, can write your "story", can make friends with all kinds of pets and can become "fans" of other pets. There is a forum section, but it looks rather inactive and a little confusing.
But for now that is the only site we have tested that has any real potential. I think if enough of us wanted to migrate there and we all made it clear how much we'd love customizable pages/better formed groups, I think the people there would be willing to tweak things to help accommodate us. So that's something to bear in mind.
Please leave a comment to other sites you've discovered and what your first impressions are :)
It's been a looong time since I wrote a diary entry, but I'm going to add one now to ask for all your votes. I've posted the links in various groups so many of my pals are already voting, and I'm very grateful! :) But for my friends just visiting my page now to read my diary entry, please vote!
