Remember when!!!

Remember when....this was a happy place....I remember helping to transport poor Shasta from Winston & Sylvie to Ohio where she was picked up and taken to her new home in Missouri....it was a pleasure to help that wonderful Shasta.

I remember those days when pets was filled with rescuers.

Wasn't Otter's Molly a foster of Frenchy's? Wonder what ever happened to Otter, she always posted great pics of Molly and her current dog, Nolie.

If it hadn't have been for BenMax we wouldn't have Jack living with us. BenMax arranged with JRT Rescue that they would take him in if it just didn't work out with the dogs and cats at home.....

Do you know how hard it is to get a Jack taken into JRT Rescue?

Jack says thankyou BenMax

A different aspect of Remember When!

http://www.pets.ca/forum/vbtube_show.php?tubeid=147

For me, two years ago (and still today), everyone and their fur companion has meant something to someone in some way or another.

Not trying to brag on the video (volume required) but remembering what pets.ca was built on--friendships and the love of our pets.

Missing many of you and your pets!

If it wasn't for Shay and her rescue we wouldn't have our sweet Mindy in our house! LP and Shay told me about Shih tzus and how wodnerful they are. I didn't know anything about them. Shay found the perfect one for us and son drove me 7 hrs one way to pick up Mindy! She is one of the sweetest pups I've ever had. And now I want a herd of Shih Tzus cause no one can have just one!

Not trying to cause any trouble but am curious to listen and learn how it was a few years ago if there was some kind of gathering of some sort.

Maybe in the future, it could be dubbed as a Pets.ca Convention instead of a reunion.

The board is not just rescue, though. The board is a great resource for people looking for answers and people dealing with the worst news possible. Threads like these: Idiopathic thrombocytopenia in dogs and Dog nose bleed - Answered by Dr. Lee
Not rescue threads, but still part of the vital pulse of the board. And this service, like rescue, is ongoing.

I have my own special stories to tell about the friendships and the journeys some of my guys have taken to get here. I joined after the Shasta journey, right around the time of Skylar's adventure, and remember well when the cat was in the ceiling and aslan came to the rescue.
Pets, to me, was many many things. Pets was a place to come to learn. Pets was a place to come to share and hopefully help a little bit. Pets was a place to meet my "friends' without having to leave my house. Pets was a learning place, a sharing place, and a friendly place. Pets may not be all about rescue but we all cheered when one more was rescued; when one more found a forever home. Occasionally we still do. We did things for each other. We shared, we commiserated, we mourned. I truly hope sometime in the future Pets can once again be all of those things.

Some members still share (both joys and sorrows), commiserate, mourn losses, celebrate victories large and small, embrace possibilities, rejoice in a found pet. I see it every day. .

hazel,,,I don't think Shirley meant that it was just about rescue.

I thought it was the kewlest thing after I first joined to know that there were people getting organized to transport cats and dogs to another rescue so they could be adopted faster and to save them from being PTS! And I remember the kitties being caught and rescued from a warehouse and transported to foster homes. I had never seen anything like that before!

quote edited as per original quote

hazel, I know I might have missed that in a post; being as I'm visually impaired,,,but I didn't see anyone mention that it was just about one person except for you. I think they were just remembering things and wanted to share them. You know when old folks sit on the porch in a rocker and reminisce about memories they have? Not that I'm calling anyone old.

Hazel...you are . We are reminising about the highlights of our experiences here...good times, memorable times, times that we rejoiced in. It is not about forum services. It is about a community and not one person. I don't know where you got that from..

Now back on topic...

I found this forum when I needed help with a paralysed cat....I was totally dunbfounded...as were my vet and the neurologist who saw him.
All worked out well....but this became a place of support and has remained so. It was a place where if I ran into any kind of problem I could get feedback and perhaps just feel better...It may be my imagination, but it seemed to be a place I felt secure with.....unfortunately, I am afraid to express anything anymore as I have received some snarky comments in the last few weeks from members I did not know...and it made me feel I was wasting my time even trying to share.....NOT established members who knew me and my furbabies...but others who seemed to show up from no where and deemed themselves "experts' in all fields.
I dont believe I have ever offered advise unless it has been tried by me in the past and was found useful to me and the pet invovled and this is the same for many others.
Thank you Shirley for reminding us we have all had some great experiences and support from here...what I believe the original intent was.

hazel, it was certainly not my intention that rescue was the only thing that made this a happy place. I have found in the past everyone so knowledgeable with real experiences..not just a googled response. So many with helpful ideas and suggestions...i now raw feed...would i have done that on my own or a googled topic...never...but the best thing i have done for my guys. \lost and found...still my passion and i have had so much support from the members here...everyone remembering Sable..Chris offering to go with me on that long drive to where we lost him...and like QMC...this was a place for comfort and to find answers to problems no matter what....and for that i miss this site dearly but somehow i will keep in touch with all those that have touched my heart....even if they are banned which i too feel this site is loser and the ones sent to bring this turmoil about will be gone in no time leaving a very sad place.

FAMILY IS FOREVER...AND THIS IS MY PETS FAMILY AND NO ONE CAN BREAK THAT
