Opposites attract, or so goes the old adage. As of today, you may consider me a firm believer.
I've been noticing mention of Dogster on the blogs of some of our friends as I've made my way around to visit. If you're not familiar with Dogster I'd be surprised - most hard core dog lovers have found it in their internet travels. I cannot say with certainty that it is the oldest (perhaps it is - I neglected to ask) but it is unquestionably the largest and most mature social networking site for dogs in existence. But that's just scratching the surface. Take a few moments to check it out - it's a thriving, passionate, vocal community of dog lovers. If you've not been, you can easily invest a week in really finding your way around. There is much to take in, and a wealth of great information available.
Our dogs have had pages on Dogster for years (see badge on right side of this page). We're even connected with some of you there already. So it was a great surprise to receive a nice message from them the day our winter games commenced. It seems that they had just enough fun playing along to take a look around and dig in to the archives here. Oddly enough, they were not scared off!
I can't explain it either, but I'm going with it. I'm really going with it. Because the very nice folks at Dogster have invited us to "play in their park" from time to time. To be more accurate, we're being allowed monthly visitation rights. I think that's a safe call on their part! Let me take a moment to say that if you have arrived from Dogster today, welcome. It is a great pleasure to meet you and your pack members. Our home is yours, and we hope you enjoy the visit.
For our old friends, we have exciting news. I have said enough, so please take a moment to check out this post from Maria Goodavage at Dogster. It made my week. Dogster has an official blog (you just visited it) and once a month, we will be dropping in with a guest post. Maria and the other contributors at Dogster are certified dog nuts like all of us, so it's a really fun way for us to introduce more dog lovers to one another. By now many of you have realized that if a blog had a mission statement, sharing would be plastered all over ours. So this new friendship makes perfect sense. Dogster is sweet, and we're slightly sour. They do much good, and we...well you get the point. It's a great fit.
Many thanks to Maria and to Dogster for finding us and taking the time to introduce us to their fans. And great thanks to our loyal followers. Your feedback makes all of the difference!
Have a great weekend with your pooches, hug them all for us, and be well. I'd ask who loves you, but I already know the answer. ♥
