You've Got A Friend On Dogster
The community talks and Dogster listens :) Many of you have woofed to us asking for improvements to Pup Pal requests. And now, they're here. When you click on the pup that you want to be pals with you get the option of selecting their whole family - one quick request and you can make multiple pals! You can also review and manage all of your requests from the new Pup Pal Requests Page. It will help you sniff out whom you've contacted, if they've accepted, etc. We hope you all enjoy the new Pup Pal features as much as we enjoyed creating them for you.

From The Dogster Community...
Just in time for the holidays, here's a touching and inspiring sentiment from Jester's mom.
I have a blind dog named Jester, and he was invited to join a group called "Pets With Disabilities." I joined and the support and friendship I have encountered since then has brought me to tears several times.

When we were sent to see a specialist about the possible removal of his eye, I was devastated. Then, when I found out he was going to have to have the surgery, and the cost exceeded what I could afford. I mentioned on our message board, that I would be scouring closets in search of eBay items. In just a few hours I had offers of items that I could list on eBay from others in the PWD group.

It makes me cry to think of all the wonderful people out there who don't really know me, but were willing to help my little guy and me get through this. For myself and my family, this is the kind of thing that truly represents the spirit of the holiday season. Thank you, Dogster for helping us find these angels.

Dogster has changed all of our lives, so we always want to hear how it has affected you and your fur babies! Keep on barking those stories to Randi at Dogster dot com!

Sticker Madness!
Wouldn't it be cool to drive around and show your love of Dogster with a sticker on your bumper? Or maybe you can put it on your notebook at school so everyone in your class can see it? If this sounds up your alley, send a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope to: Dogster HQ, Attn: Dogster Stickers, 555 DeHaro Street #350, San Francisco, CA 94107 and we'll woof a Dogster sticker right back to you!

May all animals be happy and safe,
Ted, John, Steven & Dogster HQ
Dogster, for the love of dog!
