Social networking for man's best friend

As some of you know, I am a dog owner. A running joke my wife and I have is we are not dog owners, but rather, we are Biscuit's (our dog's name) pets and slaves since she is treated like royalty and seems to rule the household. That is why I found this article interesting. It's about a website called Here is an excerpt from the article on

"Social networking Web sites are all the rage these days. Sites such as Friendster, MySpace, Facebook and others allow users to create little corners of the Internet that are all their own. But the trend isn't only for bipedal Web fanatics. A site called Dogster gives our furry friends the opportunity to post photos, share their personalities, make new friends and even maintain blogs.

On Dogster, which won the 2005 Webby Award in the community category, Web savvy humans take a back seat to their lovable companions. Much like Friendster and MySpace, dogs can make friends with each other, leave "treats," the doggie equivalent of a testimonial, and can even note what sort of mood they're in that day. But it's not all just about having fun. Dog lovers can browse profiles of adoptable dogs in their area, a way to find good homes for dogs in need."

As you can see from the description above, this is a neat website if you are pet owner, and after browsing the site for a while, it's definitely a worthwhile site to join if you don't own a dog, but are considering adopting one. They have numerous dogs up for adoption on the site. Check it out. You'll have fun on the site, and you just might find yourself a new four-legged best friend...

Make it a great day!
