Mom actually furst discovered Dogster when she was dogless, during the few months after my sisfur's Rainbow day and befure my Gotcha day. She mostly visited the forums and found many infuresting debates there.
My profile was started about 6 months after my Gotcha day. Ma is not the quickest actin' of peoples. At furst, I wasn't very active and did not make any pals fur a few months. Mostly ma did lotsa readin', mainly in the forums.
Finally, we made a big leap and posted in a forum. A few pups came forward and extended a paw of furiendship. Pups like Dorothy 'Dot' Louise, Tosha, Nina and Lola were my furst few pals. Wellwoof, this opened up a whole new Dogster experience fur us! Through these pals we discovered Dogster diaries and the fun of exchanging Dogster gifts.
Eventufurly I started my own diary. A pup named Zaidie left me a nice comment in one of my furst few entries. How nice it was of him to leave a comment! I decided to ask him to be furiends. He accepted!! I soon discovered Zaidie is quite the talented Haiku writin' pup! Ma and I LUV Zaidie's haikus and he has inspired me to bark sum of my own!
Woofs, Doggy Haiku!
What a wonderfur idea!
One smart pup, Zaidie!
Sometime later, while perusing Zaidie's diary, I noticed Hershey pup. Hershey lives kinda near where I live. I sent him a pup pal request and not only did he accept, he invited me to join a group! Several sweet pups from this group, like Walker, Molly, Alexandria & Pookah gave me a waggin' welcome and we became pals.
After sum time of diary barks, eventufurly, my diary was one of the daily picks! This lead to a few more introductions and I met my good furiend, Whitley! Whitley lead me to Finley! Then I met Ebony and Wrinkles! Rinky was still havin' some good feelin' days. But we were earthly furiends fur far too short. Now she is one of quite a few Rainbow furiends.
After a woofwhile I started noticing a dog barkin' in a lot of my furiends diaries. This was MrJackFreckles AKA SirLickAlot! He seemed like a fun pup with some infurestin' things to bark. So I pawed over a ppr and he accepted. Then thru MrJack I met Petey!
Zaidie had sum diary entries about a whole barkin' adventure with Zoe, Tux & Drover (plus their kitty) comin' to visit him! I just had to ask these fun pups to be pals!
Last summer a dog named Flicka caught my eye. We both commented on a rather sad diary entry. Ma was struck by Flicka's kind and meaningful comment to an anguished doggy parent. Often the right words are so hard to find in those sad, difficult situations. Flicka has a knack fur comin' thru with comfurt that is wise, appropriate, and uplifting. There is much to learn from Flicka, Lucas, Cleo and Pam. I am so privileged they are my furiends.
Some younger pups that are very spawcial to me are Daxi & Sly. These are mastiff puppies in their furst year of life here on God's green earth. It's been fun readin' about their puppy antics. They will be one year old in a month or so. We became pals when they were 3 months old. I have enjoyed seein' them grow & Grow & GROW & learn & Learn & LEARN! They are good pups on the way to bein' great dogs!
And this year, I gotta meet a coupla Dogster pals in the fur! Josephine and Jolanda and their parents came out to see me do my dock divin'! That was so nice to have sum extra cheers in my corner!
I might not have a gazillion pals. But the pals I do have are all caring and generous. Time and again, we have seen on Dogster that kind words can turn into kind deeds. And there are many big, kind hearts all over this Dogster place!
Big happy wags,

Pepper, I feel the same way you do about Dogster and how we have met all of our pals!! And i'm very greatful to have you in my circle of friends!!
Sweet Girl.. you and Mum are a joy and delight.. and we too are honoured by your friendship.
This is a cranky old site.. often inspiring bricks to be thrown at walls.. but bottom line is.. it is also a group of folk who ask nothing.. and give of life and heart by the bucketful.
Folk learn they are not alone in laughter.. or grief.. or that their dog isnt perfect... There is encouragement and down right care and love.
THAT.. is how life is supposed to be
Hugs and Love for you and yours.. you are Treasures ..
HAPPY FIRST YEAR !!
P.S. Mum says thanks for glossing over that she can be blunt( but well meaning) at times too .... GRINSSSSSSSSS
Pepper we are so happy you are here! You are a wonderful and fun pup! Dogster is a great place to meet other's and play.
Happy Wag's, Walker & Crew
