|I would hope so. I am working on it. And to also revive things to when it was a better place.
I am not an internet person....I think a lot of it is one step back from reality. Good way to vent, or to "feel" important, personas people wouldn't have the chutzpah to actually be in real life and such. But Dogster was something where REAL things happened. I co-founded a rescue via Dogster. It wasn't even my idea, so to say it would exist without Dogster is a thousand percent impossible. I have really benefited from Duncan's shelter and southern culture knowledge, and I am not trying to sound puffy, but very few, if any, transport rescues up here have people with my background of working with all breed rescues, etc. or breed matching experience. We are a unique team, and it is all because of Dogster. A true north-meets-south, with a rather awesome collective experience. It's also personal. Duncan truly is a dear friend and lives downstairs from me. I help her to raise her daughter...who is my best little friend...and actually have someone I can talk dogs with at 3:00 in the morning
I remember Toto going in and saving the heart of a Dogster member, whose dogs had to be taken to a shelter when she went homeless with her mom. After one of the two got euthed, Toto came to the rescue. How AWESOME was that?
I've found all our fosters here. I have made true relationships. Even those who stormed off...we have our own group, and it is awesome.
When Moose's mom was heartbroken about Mikey, I hooked her up with the right person. How many people here have been steered off bad breeders? In the CAD forum or this B&T, how many have been steered off bad choices.
People here actually meet and do stuff. It's terrifically sad, and I can't be more sarcastic than I am about SAY Media. This is not "for the love of dog," the mag is way too much of a joke for me to even write on anymore.
Technically, you can do a Facebook Group, but I would be interested to see if we could put up a forum elsewhere.
