I need to start a separate thread for my issue.
There used to be a very active and thriving community here! I hope people will come back. I'd love to actually meet you instead of just reading old posts and wondering what happened.
Most likely what happened was Facebook.
Sometimes it feels as if Susan Davis and I are the only regular visitors to the forums, which are a wealth of information to me and quite possibly a ghost town to her. She's a wonderful "personal private doggie life coach" and I enjoy her company but I don't have the answers to Emmie's and Bonnie's medical issues since I've never has a senior chi! All I can offer is comic relief and pleasant memories of puppyhood.
One thing we do have in common is that we don't use Facebook. More than likely, that's where (collective) you are. I'm not sure why the spammers haven't found us/you (yet) but it could well be Susan's hard work for all I know.
There are valid reasons for not using Facebook. There are, of course, also valid reasons for using Facebook.
Please don't leave people behind over technology; it's not worth it.
I guess my rant is over now, lol.
