    Happy Birthday to the Sites!

    On September 1 in 1997, we launched PetoftheDay.com and had no idea if it would succeed or if people would "get it" or like it or participate. And here we are, starting our 16th year of Pet of the Day, and 15th year for Dog of the Day and Cat of the Day!

    We were happy when even before the launch, a few people sent nominations, and in the first year, the dogs and cats so outnumbered other kinds of pets that we gave them their own sites. We are grateful to everyone who has sent nominations in, and encourage folks to continue to do so! Tell your friends, and fellow pet lovers!

    Thanks also to everyone who is part of Pet Talk, which grew out of the wish of people to be able to talk to people whose pets were featured, and has become a community with people from across the world!

    Happy Birthday, PT! I didn't know the history --- what a successful site! I PT for the wonderful people, dogs, cats and pets from all over the world; and for all that I have learned, not only about pets but also about many other subjects as well!
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Happy Birthday Pet Talk. I will forever get the warm fuzzies when ever I think of Pet Talk. A lot of my life has been involved in events that have occurred because of Pet Talk and the many wonderful people and their pets. Thank you - and may we celebrate many more birthdays as the years roll along.

    Happy Birthday, Pet Talk, and thank you Karen and Paul for this wonderful idea you had for such a great community.

    I've met so many people and friends here that I never would have otherwise. I have laughed, I have cried, and I've gotten frustrated at times, but I stay because of all the great people. I've met many pets and learned so much about the health and welfare of all animals everywhere, and probably wouldn't have if it hadn't been for Pet Talk. I've traveled around the world in the pictures of different countries and events that members have been so kind to share, and seen places here in the states that I would never have thought to be so beautiful.

    So yes - this site is a whole world within the big world that we live in. And what a nice place it is, too...
    I've Been Boo'd
    Thanks, Barry

    HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY PT!!! I'm so glad that you created such a wonderful pet forum and that I was able to find it too. This is still my favorite website to visit and I've met many wonderful people on this site as well as in person. I've also learned a lot about animals and other things. I hope that this website will continue to exist for many many more years to come. Thanks again Karen & Paul!!!
