It is a very sad day for us. Dogs With Blogs (DWB) is no more. We chatted with our pals in the "Secret Chat Room" last week and this week the chat room was gone. We clicked on our DWB link, saw this with words from Bob Hope.
DWB was started in April 2006 by Charlie and Opy, who lived in Oz. There hoomans Greg and Brooke helped them put it together. The next pup to join them was Bogart and then DWB grew and grew. Essex and Deacon joined DWB in 2007 as # 506. The first edition of DWB grew to 1395 members. Then it closed its doors and a second edition of DWB started.
DWB was pawsome. We voted for photo of the month, best post, got together in the chat room on Sunday morning and for New Years Eve. We made canine and hooman chums across the globe. We supported each other when pups or hoomans crossed the rainbow bridge to include our beloved Deacon in 2011. We welcomed new members and new additions to packs, like Sherman to our pack. Yes, the DWB community supported each other through good and bad times.
We are sad to see DWB go, but blogging isn't as popular as it was when we started. We met many cyber-paw pals because of DWB and are very grateful to have been part of that community. We would like to thank Greg & Brooke for forming DWB.
Essex & Sherman
