San Fransisco Chronicle And Dogster’s Launch
Two months after a group of self-described computer and canine geeks in San Francisco launched a social networking site for dogs, thousands of furry ones have their own Web page, complete with mug shots, personal stories and listings of likes and pet peeves.
The online site, called Dogster.com, went live Jan. 12 with fewer than 100 dogs. As of Friday, there were more than 8,000 dogs posted on the site. Hundreds of new pooches from around the globe are added daily. There are dogs from far-flung countries including Malaysia, Afghanistan, New Zealand and Croatia.
