|The Welcome Waggin' is coming up on it's 3 year annifursary in early June. For those of you who are new...
We were not always called Welcome Waggin'. We started as a one month Adopt-a-pup/Kitty Mentor Program. The idea was to pair up newbies with Catster/Dogster veterans in a Big Brother/Big Sister relationship. At the end of the first month, the idea had become so popular that we decided to continue as a group.
We announced a contest to re-name ourselves as a group, and it was Morgan the Pirate Gato who submitted the winning entry of Welcome Waggin'. This was appropriate, because we were set up to welcome new members.
As we near our annifursary- we are hoping to re-focus on what we were initially set up to do...to pair up veterans with newbies. Catster/Dogsterland can be a confusing place at first, and a mentor to help show you around, give you page decorating tips, help you make friends...this is a good thing.
We will start new threads for those who want a mentor, and one thread for those veterans who want to be a mentor. We are hoping that getting back to our roots will make us stronger and make Catster/Dogsterland a more welcoming place for all.
We hope that everyfur will participate!
Woofs and Wags!
