| I discovered Dogster thru a friend who's dog was listed & exclaimed she could spend hours on it! So, I put up Dahlia's page, started getting PPRs, looked at new dogs, and found it entertaining.
Then last year I discovered Forums! Now I'm addicted....my eyes glaze over, I reach for the keypad, and run rampant thru it! I have learned so much about food, training, similar experiences, dog health, etc. We all have a common bond--our love for our dogs, and the concern for the welfare of others. I have watched Doggie soap operas unfold, pups growing up, owners struggling with training or behavior issues, advice on everything from the mundane to heart-breaking problems, and find myself racing to the PC to see how their day, week, class, vet's visit, etc went! (perhaps I need a life?)
As for pup pals.........If sent a request, I accept; hate to say no 'cause I wouldn't want to bruise anyone's feelings, & have had some interesting IM's from owners all over the world! I choose pals by state, city, similar looks to my dog, cuteness, and largely by diaries and/or "Gotcha" day stories.
I have several favorite posters, whose intelligence, kindness, and especially Humor touch me. I actually feel like the so-called strangers are indeed, my friends, and would love to meet some of them in person someday!
Good post--I liked it alot, and hope I didn't get too long winded. (I'll blame it on my morning cups of coffee!)
