Pix from Westminster Dog Show

I’ll have results from the first night’s competition posted early Tuesday morning.

Good day, and good dog!

New Features on has launched an exciting new feature: a searchable directory where dog-related businesses can post information, pictures, and contact information for FREE.   Each business receives a free web page including text and up to six pictures.  Quick links on each listing lead you to the business’ email and web site if they have one, and to an interactive map so you can easily find the business.  You can search by zip code in categories such as veterinarians, groomers, boarding kennels, dog sitters, and trainers.


If you own a dog-related business, be sure to sign up your business for your free web page now!


A companion feature, community forums, is also newly available.  In this section, you can ask questions and socialize with other dog lovers.  Some forums are specific to a particular breed, while others focus on support after the death of a beloved pet, lost and found dogs, behavior and training, and dog photos.  This feature is also free to join and free to use.


What are you waiting for?  Click over to the directory or community forums today!


Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!
