A Dogster Day

A month or a year ago or something, we were thinking that when this weekend came it would be the end of Dogster. We were furry sad and furry frightened to become homeless! Some of our good pals worked furry hard and fast to build new houses fur us, so a lot of the scary went away. The sad is stickier, but we heard that Dogster isn't going away after all, so our tails are wagging! (Mommy is skeptable, but hey, we're dogs! We don't do skeptable!!)

Anywag, it occurred to me that I've never barked about my typical Dogster day. This seems like a good day to do that.

The furst thing I do is check mommy's e-mail. That's where I find messages if one of my Dogster pals has sent me a gift, or commented on my diary or a photo. That's so exciting!! The next thing is to send out my thank-you gifts or notes.

Next I go to the Community Page to see if any of my pals are having Barkdays or Gotcha Days so I can send them pressies! Some days there are only one or two, but some days the list is way long! How fun!! Today my pal Whisper, who is at the Rainbow Bridge, is celebrating his Barkday! Happy Barkday, Whisper!!

Next I look to see if I know the winners of the Dogster honors, Dog of the Day or Dog of the Week of Diary of the Day, and all the Daily Diary Picks. I'm so proud when my pals are featured!! I send them notes and pressies and Condogulations! This week my pal Sunny is the Dog of the Week!! And today four out of the five DDPs are pals of mine! Condogulations to Puff, Pepper, Daisy and Cinnamon!!

Now it's time to go to my groups! Furst I go to Furiends Furever, because I have a cafe there. It's called Hershey's Place. I serve breakfast and din-din there, and the pups and kitties like to come in to chat or play or nap. In the winter we have a big fire in the fireplace all day long. In the summer we open the pool, and there is also a lake just down the hill. It's always fun to see who might pop in! Walker and his fambly are there evfurry day, and Chauncey still visits from the Rainbow Bridge. While I'm busy in the cafe, Winkie likes to run through the other threads playing games!

Next I go to Princess Divas and Prince Charmings (PDPC). That's a furry fun group with lots of games and contests. Bailey and Buttercup work furry hard to update the threads evfurry day. They have Royal Members of the Day and Week, and they nevfur furget a Barkday or Purrday. Winkie and I always have a good time there!

About this time mommy will tell me it's time to let her do other things, like fight with the sucky monster or mess around in the kitchen. We also have to get our brush-and-walk. So we put the confuser away until later. Then it's pop in and out whenevfur we can between mommy looking at the teevee box and whatevfur else she does after daddy gets home. I like to see if any of my pals have added photos or diaries. I serve din-din at Hershey's Place, and I always check in at Pets That Love Fun. I have lots of groups here that I visit, and some I wish I could visit more often. And now there is also Pets4Pals and the Pupster/Kitster forum. I even have a blog. Mommy says it's all too much, but I say if she had her priorities straight we could do it all, evfurry day! I love Dogster and I always will. I hope Dogster lives furevfur!

She does, Flicka, all the time! BOL!! People ask her what she does now that she's retired and she says, "What I always did, except without the job. Now I have TIME to do it!"

Crikey Hershey ... don't you wish there were more hours in the day? I do then we COULD fit it all in. My Mum's having trouble keeping up with all my demands these days too. It was much easier when it was JUST dogster but people went to so much trouble to keep us all together that I think we have to try and look in on everything. More hours Hershey ... that's what we need!!!My Mum's just retired too. It's good, aye??

We feel kind of spread out as well. I like how we have so many at our paws we can check in with Dogster. I'm here for the long haul as well.

Wow, Hershey you have a busy day checking all the stuff you do at Dogster. I do a lot of the stuff you mentioned especially the birthday and DDPs. And we like sending thank yous to our pup pals and friends too.

We will stick with Dogster too - as long as they stick with us. My first web page was made here.

Love -

Hershey

Hi Hershey - we too are feeling pretty spread out but have been spending most of our time over at BLOGGER - we went through a lot of trouble to get that blog set up and working, with the help of Finley, Whitley and Zoe. Also went through many HOURS trying to copy our Dogster pages (slow internet service and computer challenged momma). Not feeling much love towards SAY Media right at the moment and with them stringing us along with promises of "more information when it becomes available" are disliking them even more. One thing I am really cautious about is their use of the word "PARTNER" - that in it's self leads me to believe SAY Media is still going to be calling some of the shots because a "PARTNER" is someone who works WITH you. I haven't heard anything about SAY Media SELLING the community pages to anyone.

Puffy and I are going to watch and see what happens before we decide if we are coming back here or not.

Points well taken, Coco. I'm just hoping against hope that because SlayMedia wanted to dump Dogster, they will. Or at least let someone run it who might love it. Time will tell...
