Mom's a Guest Blogger on!

A few days ago mom received an email inquiry asking if she would be interested in a short guest posting stint on the Official blog. Most of you know she is a huge fan of Dogster.  She goes there a lot and pretends to be me, and talks to other people pretending to be their dogs.

Seriously, it's not as crazy as it sounds.

On Dogster your human's online username is your name. Their avatar is a photo of you. So it's only natural that people start speaking as their dog right? Ummmm well that's her story and she's sticking to it.

Her post, written as herself, is titled "Does Your Dog Need a Blog?"

All in all she can't say enough good things about Dogster. Want the latest news about anything dog related and she swears you'll read it in their forums days before the mainstream media picks up the story. Want to help support dogs in need, help demand responsible owner legislation, tougher cruelty laws and learn about the latest in dog health, nutrition, training and behavior? The Dogster Forums is where she does all of that and much, much more.

Her post is all about how a blog can help to share this information with even more pet owners then those who are members of Dogster. In particular she think starting a blog and adding a link list to all of your local shelters and rescues that you email to anyone you hear of looking to adopt a pet is such an easy thing we as individuals can do. And it can help save some of the millions of unwanted pets, like me, in our nations shelters each year. I have a Northern California shelter and rescue link list on my website homepage. Just scroll down a bit and you'll see it.

Other then emailing it to interested friends how do people find it? Well it's easy once she hands them one of my business cards. BOL.

Since joining Dogster moms learned a lot about the internet, basic HTML, online communities, how to post on a forum and how to be a better communicator in general. We've also made some really fantastic real life friends. (If you aren't a dog lover they also have Catster for people who are into their kitties.)

Check out my Dogster page. When you join Dogster or Catster you get a free online profile where you can add a bio and 10 pictures of your pet. If you join, you can send me a Pup Pal Request and toss me a few virtual bones :P
