Back Before I Had This Blog.......

......there was Dogster. I set Wilson  up on that website in January 2007  and added Jimmy  when he came along. It was a fun site as people added each other as Pals and gave out bones and stars. But as blogging became more popular, I jumped on that bandwagon and lost interest in Dogster. I can't say I ever go there anymore, but with both Jimmy and Wilson having recent birthdays, I was reminded of it. Dogster always sends birthday emails.......

This got me to wondering......On Dogster, you can read about breed profiles. You can learn about the characteristics and the history, as well as see a photo of what the breed looks like. Well, back in my Dogster days,  the website had chosen one of my photos of Wilson to use for the profile of the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. Of course, I thought that was pretty neat! So when I got the recent b-day emails it made me curious if that picture was still in use. Sure enough, when I went and checked, there's my Wilson, representing his kind.....

I always used to joke that Wilson was getting his 15 Minutes of Fame.....Well, it looks like he's gotten a lot more than that! He's held the position of Breed Representative for about six years now. Do you think Dogster will pay him a pension? In this day and age, probably not.....Sigh.

I hope your holiday weekend goes famously! 
Enjoy the extra day!


  1. Yea yea Wilson needs to be getting at least some cool treats but cash would work too ;) Have a wonderful weekend!!

  2. That is pretty cool! Way to represent!! We were never into Dogster, I think it was before we had dogs. But now we are part of the pack thing, and I have to say, I don't really get that either. Have a great weekend!

    1. Yes, I am on Pack as well. I added the boys a few weeks ago and haven't seen any reason to go back. It's just another time burner!

  3. I always get tickled to see where the boys photos end up.


  4. Way to go Wilson!

    I recently joined Pack too - but I totally don't get it. Other than getting messages that people "love" Rita, I don't see what else you can do on there. And I def'ly don't need another time-waster!

  5. Maybe the odd treat??? Here is hoping. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Why would they ever change out that photo? Wilson is definitely the "poster dog" for what the proper Cardigan Corgi should look like.

  7. That's way more than 15 minutes LOL. Interesting about Dogster. I started blogging about 3 years ago and am not familiar with it. Sometimes, I don't think blogs are going to last much longer. So many of the bloggers I follow seem to have moved on to twitter, Facebook, pinterest and god knows what else. Kind of sad, losing friends and getting left behind ;)
