Know a dog lover that's not a member of Dogster? Then run, don't w-a-l-k to their house and bark at them. On top of being the best thing to happen to pups since fire hydrants, Dogster's offering new members the chance to win a new digital camera when they sign up and post a pup picture. The camera's state-of-the-art - and a perfect way to showcase their pup's furry features in the community.

Now here's how YOU get in on the fun. When you refer a friend to Dogster by February 28, they'll be in the running for the free camera. If they win, we'll ask who referred them. If that person is YOU, you'll win the 100 pack of Zealies. It's that simple. And so much fun. Just send your friends to www.dogster.com/fetch/refer and we'll take care of the rest.

Barks and Thanks from the Dogster Community.
Here's a bark of thanks from Bee and Rocki's mom

Rocki and Bee's family moved back home to Australia from the States. And in accordance with their laws, the poor pups had to go in to quarantine for 30 days! "It was the shortest amount of time possible - as we had all of their shots and tests done prior to them leaving New York."

But the family wasn't without dog love for that painful, month-long period. "Their darling friends on Dogster have been counting the moments for their return right along with us. This support has kept us laughing, smiling and our hearts glowing. To think that there was so many other pups out there thinking of our babies whilst they have been away from their Mum and Dad and sending such wonderful support our way was just amazing."
