So, I've been gone for a while and I realized some people were gone!!! I really miss them... does anyone know where they went or why they left? It makes me sad to think that they left.

I know Mandy (Cisco) left cause of some things that were said.....Just read on an old post of hers while doing the catch up, but not sure about Pete or Gemma rose or a few of the others :( I miss them too, this place doesn't feel the same when some of our 'family' leave us :( I really miss Mandy though, I loved reading all about her doberventures with piggy and the kid :'( I really hope she comes back! I bet her puppers are huge now! Would looooove to see pics of them!

I think the reason people leave is that others can be extremely opinionated and that, is offensive to some.  I've learned to take comments with a grain of salt. I like the comments from others and find them helpful, however, some folks lack the skills to communicate in a manner that is respectful rather than being blunt. Just my observations from reading and I'm sure I'll tick someone off for writing this. Have a wonderful day and remember, "take with a grain of salt." There's a lot of knowledge on this site.

When we had that rash of trolls a while back I think it put a lot of people off...I know I stopped checking in for a little while.  Then missed it and had to come back :o)  Not everyone is totally gone per se!  Maybe some are just taking a hiatus?

YYAAAAYYYYYY!!!! You're back Mandy!!! I miss the kids, and Skye misses seeing "that cute boy"... She can only be talking about Cisco. lolz 

I hope some of the others come back too... I miss them. 

@ Dennis Miller: I totally understand where you are coming from after recently having the experience I did and was seriously going to leave, but like you said there is a wealth of knowledge here and for the most part I think the people here are good and don't mean to be hurtful. It's about being respectful. We can all have different, even vastly different opinions, but still respect other people's views and don't need to be hurtful.  

Mandy, glad you are back. Cant wait to hear how the kids are doing.

A lot of us have joined Facebook..

I do check in to the Forum frequently and love to meet the new members.. and especially look at the wonderful photos you post... Sofia and never would have made it without this forum.. I hadn't had a dog in many years, and never owned a Doberman.. soo this was a gold mine for me.. I have made some life long friends here and cherish all of them. The advise is sound, the suggestions valuable and the support is amazing.. yes, we get our occasional Troll.. and that makes for some discomfort for some of us as this entire Forum is based on faith and trust, and so to be misled is embarrassing and upsetting..

Our Alpha Administrator ( Webby) does a marvelous job of moderating and BTW isn't he aDORable!!?? 

So even if we don't post all the time... we ARE here and of course all of you are welcome to PM any of us whenever you want to.. ( see that cute little envelope on the left hand side of the posting screen ( right under Pet Profiles ) ???? Just hit that with your cursor and voila.. you come straight to our Email.

Smooches to the Pooches and love t'all y'all

Katie and Sofia

I'm still around---I do more lurking and reading than posting these days, though.  I try to keep caught up on what's happening, but sometimes it takes me a couple of days to read all the posts I've missed. 

I'll still jump in and throw my two-cents worth in occasionally.
