Dear Dogster Member,

Aryooo! We know it's March 'cause why else would we be feeling so darn lucky? Could it be the Saint Patty's Day is right around the corner? Or is it that you can't shake a shamrock without seeing the world's cutest and most fantastic furries all in one place?! Yep, here at Dogster HQ we don't need a pot o' gold to tell us how fortunate we are to be part of all this dog gone dog love. And there's no better way to spread the wealth than to update you on what we're doing to make our community even better. Keep on reading...

Here's How A Hug Can Help!
Bounce® and your hug will help provide either dogs or cats of the ASPCA some much needed love - $10,000 and a year's supply of pet food! The donation will be used to help improve the lives of homeless animals across North America, including medical exams, vaccinations, and spay and neutering. So click here to give your faithful friend that extra hug they deserve. Love your pet, not the hair - Bounce® helps repel the hair.

Spring Into The Pet Health Zone!
Break out of those winter blues and get in the Zone. VPI's Pet Health Zone addresses an important topic: "Spring Garden Safety for Your Pet." Find out what plants may be toxic to your pet. Also, what does your breed of dog say about your personality? Are there common traits between you and your pooch? Sniff out the clues on the Zone. An amazing amount of Dogster members tested their VPI Pet Insurance knowledge in February's contest quiz; get the answers here and learn more about VPI and the benefits it offers you and your pet. Then don't forget to enter March's Favorite Pet Joke contest! One lucky winner will receive a $250 gift basket packed with pet prizes.

Is March Your Lucky Month?
There's still a lot of untapped dog love out there. And seeing this month is all about luck, now would be a great time to get your dog-walking, dog-talking, dog loving friends on Dogster. You see, for every person you get signed up thru the end of March, that person automatically is entered in to our drawing for a new digital camera. If the person you get to sign up wins, you score a 100 pack of Zealies! Just connect your pooch- pals to this link and we'll take it from there. www.dogster.com/fetch/refer

DogsterPlus' Special
Shamrock Rosette
Get The Love. Give The Love.
There's not a Dogster out there who doesn't love getting a Rosette or a Star from a fellow dog lover. So let's make March their lucky month and bark out a treat to the newest members in our community to make 'em feel welcome. Or wag a few stars in the direction of your bestest pals. Or sign-up for Dogster Plus where you can give out our specially seasoned Rosettes. This month, you lucky dog, it's a green Shamrock.

What In The Woof Does "BOL" Stand For?!?
Why, "bark out loud" of course! But if you're new to Dogster and having trouble understanding what your furry friends are saying with all of the acronyms and special phrases, visit this forum thread: "How to Speak Dogster... BOL and more!" This thread started and maintained by our pal, Kitai, is chock full of all the Dogster lingo you'll need. Pretty soon you'll be the most educated Dogster of all time.

Notes From The Community.
We hear all sorts of great stories here at Dogster HQ. The following was one that stood out about two Dogster families that, as luck would have it, lived in the same neighborhood!

"I joined Dogster in October and one day I typed in my hometown of Florida, NY in to Dogster's search engine and came across a family that lived in the same town."

Turns out, the family had just lost their beloved dog. "And we were still feeling the pain from losing our first German Shepherd Christine, so I reached out to them."

That was the start of a beautiful friendship. Both families have bonded and gotten together for weekend pooch play dates. They've helped each other socialize their new puppies and found many other common interests outside of the Dog realm.

I just wanted to say how wonderful this site is and I want to thank you!

These are the stories we like to hear! Keep woofing your stories of Dogster love to Randi at Dogster dot com!

Show The World You're A Dogster!
Proud to be a Dogster? Then show off with Dogster stickers. Place them on bumpers, binders, water bottles and water bowls. They're free and tail-wagging fun. Simply send a self addressed stamped envelope to: Dogster HQ, Attn: Dogster Stickers, 555 De Haro Street #350, San Francisco, CA 94107 and we'll woof a Dogster sticker right back to you!

Well, that's all the news that's fit to bark. Keep your ears perked for our next newsletter. Until then...

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