    Lots of new members!

    A lot of new members joined yesterday - 42 if my count is right!! Wow, that's a lot in one day! I wonder if that's also a record.

    In the almost 3 yrs. I've been around, I've never seen anything like it! Kind of strange, if you ask me. We've haven't had so many responses to a weekday DOTD in my recent memory. Can't say I was too thrilled with some of them...Reuben...a fake??? Please!

    Hi Mary! Hmmmm, I can't remember exactly when Karen started the Pet Talk portion of POTD...but it was in 2000, I think! Logan, Rachel, Pam, Sue (Sudilar) KYS, Sammi, Jackie and a lot of old timers who are still around all started around the same time. We've grown to quite a family, haven't we!! I think there are newer people though who post at a far greater rate than me!! It's only a matter of time before they (you maybe??) take over the top spot!! Part of the reason I have so many posts is that in my almost 3 yrs with Pet Talk, I haven't once missed a reply to the Dog, Cat or Pet of the Day! Over the course of a month, that adds up to a lot of posts! It was the reason I first joined and it is still my 1st love! I just melt when I read of the love others have for their animals!!

    I must be blind, or can't see for looking

    Paul started a thread about it yesterday and I noticed that there were tons of new, first time posters in POTD and DOTD...I think Paul's thread is not far below this one.Who's talking about Pet Talk??

    Yes - I thought that was a silly thing to say too!

    The thought did not even cross my mind

    Reuben is lovely!

    It's so upsetting...what must the family think??? Comments like that are so hurtful to the proud family and take away from a very special furkid's day of honor. Please, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything. We love our Dogs of the Day!

    Aly, I private messaged those people, and deleted those posts. One of them had a nice conversation with me, too.
