Dear Dogster Member,

Does Your Dog Have That Old Navy Magic?

Woof woof!

Welcome to May... the time for fewer showers (less mud at the dog park) and more flowers! Hopefully everyone is enjoying the longer days and extra time with their furry friends before the sun sets.

May is the time to celebrate all of the moms of the world... both with fur and without! The Pet Poetry Group rallied in mom's honor and created the "We Love Mom 2006 Stroll". To join, tag a photo in your profile with "We Love Mom 06" and then your photo will automatically be added to the stroll. What a fine looking bunch of moms we have in our community!

Speaking of groups, have you found your pack yet? Dogster Groups are a great way to spend time with like-minded friends. Each group has its own forums, event calendar and messaging - there are 2,084 to choose from! From "10 Years and Over?? Dogs or Cats" (our biggest group at 1349 members!) to "The Dogster Force" (Dogster users battling puppy mills) to "Pugapalooza" there are groups of all shapes and sizes. Give them a sniff!

Contact your members of Congress today and urge them to pass the Pet Evacuation and Transportation Standards (PETS) Act, which requires state and local authorities to consider the needs of people with pets and service animals in disaster plans. Please act now to save pets from the next disaster.

And lastly... We are so thankful to you, our community, for making Dogster what it is today. Recently a user shared the following with us and we wanted to share it with you. This makes it all worthwhile.

When I lost my dog, I started having panic attacks and realized for the first time in my life, I was home alone when my husband was in work. But when I found my new little buddy I soon found that they stopped. He's tiny, but with a heart of a lion and a great 'early warning system' so now we are a team. He's so precious to me and I love sharing him with everyone else. It's nice to share his growing up with people that understand. May you always know that you bring happiness, and also peace to some of us.
