Gosh darn it Ginger!!! Must you??? I'm in Western Ma, just a few miles from one NY state line. Heavens! Save me from myself. Oh phew! I've got cats. Saved!
Idog wasn't perfect. When I first joined there were "dog fights" all over the place. Under the dog.com people stricter rules were put in place so the wars were less vile....altho you needed a hard hat and a sword to step into the training threads what with the old school followers and the positive reinforcement camp.
That said.......what meant the most to me was the sense of community here. The people on this forum weren't just strangers on the internet. We became friends and family. We supported one another, cheered each other on, prayed for one another and the loved ones of one another. We didn't always agree, but we disagreed without rancor.
How do we get that back? Heck if I know. Altho....maybe you could offer former idoggers a % off coupon from dog.com to come back to the forum?
Oh, and make it easier to post from any devise. My smart phone and laptop are out and I'm getting too old for multiple trips upstairs to my desktop.....
