Arrival Story:
Riley is the grandson of our late Pointer, Cookie. Two summers ago we learned that Cookie's daughter had given birth to a litter of eight. We thought it would be great to get one of the pups and have our family grow from 3 to 4. From the first day, Riley looked up to Cookie and admired her. It took some time for Cookie to accept Riley into the home, but after only a short time the two became friends. Cookie took the time to teach Riley some manners and how to behave, while Riley taught Cookie a few bad/puppy habits. The relationship was give and take.

These days, Riley spends much of his time hanging out with us and filling our days with happiness. I know that he misses his grandma and when we watch videos of her, he sits perfectly still next us and doesn't take his eyes off of the TV.

Riley"s Big Adventure

Tremendous Sadness

I have just learned that Dogster will not be operating in the capacity that we know after March 3rd.

Sad? No I'm outraged!!!

It's no secret that for the last few years they have lost sight of what made Dogster great. It has always been about the dogs and the families that love them.

I can't begin to describe how this site and our friends have changed me, supported me, and inspired me. Losing that . . . well, I can't say what it makes me want to do.

Many of my dogster friends have moved to Facebook, and I'm thankful for that. Yet many more are only on Dogster. The thought of not being able to follow the dogs and the families leaves me empty. I have grown to care and love these dogs and the families.

I beg all of my friends that aren't on Facebook to send me their emails. I want to somehow keep in touch with you.

Friends like Zaidie, Whitley and Finley, Flicka and Lucas, Freckles, Redford and pack . . . the list goes on and on.

In 2008 I was devastated by the loss of Cookie. I found comfort and friendship in my Dogster friends. Many of my day-to-day friends couldn't understand me, and further couldn't understand my love for Dogster. None of that mattered to me. I understood why I loved it and it has always been about the dogs and people that love them.

I want all my friends to know that I have cherished each of you. I have had the pleasure of meeting many and hope that I will get to meet many more.

I don't know . . . a place that has brought me such joy and escapism is now filling me with anger and sadness.

I guess nothing in this world can stay pure . . . expect the love we receive from our dogs.


Happy Holidays to all!

Hey pals!!!

We hope that each and everyone of you had a wonderful Christmas. We know that the pups at the Bridge got together and spread lots of Christmas love.

We missed out on the free dogster tree rosette. We want to thank all of our pals that sent us one.

Caileigh and I had a low-key Christmas at home. We got lots of turkey when Mom and Dad returned from Christmas dinner at Grandfolks house.

Our yard is full of snow . . . and ice. Both Caileigh and I have been running and playing.

We wish you all the best in the upcoming year and know that we hold all of you in our hearts.

Your pals, Riley and Caileigh

Hey Pals,

I just wanted to say that both Caileigh and I haven't been on dogster much in the last two weeks. We're very sorry if we missed any birthdays or news.

You see, Caileigh and I were home alone. Okay, we weren't home all alone, we had a dog sitter, but our folks went to some place called Europe. By the way they've been talking since they've got home, they had a really good time.

Dad told me that they even saw a Pointer in Sardinia. He was black and white. Mom and Dad were on the beach and in the distance they saw the Pointer. They just had to go and say hi.

So we're back now. We hope all of our pals are well, and we're sending lots of love to our Bridge friends.

Bark at you later,
