    I'm curious to know...

    Do you remember where your first post was?
    Introductions?
    General?
    Cat chat?
    Dog chat?
    Etc.

    Did you start a thread first, or post on an existing one?

    What was the reason was you first came here?
    Did you suffer a loss?
    Have a general question?
    Need support?
    Want to be around other pet owners?
    Stumble across the forum by accident?
    Etc.



    I came here needing support and understanding when Harvey was very ill, and was having an op on one of his only 3 remaining legs.
    I started my own thread about it in cat chat, and everyone was so friendly and supportive, I was overwhelmed.
    Harvey sadly died a few days later, and having you lot really helped ease the pain a bit.

    I believe everything happens for a reason, and I was meant to find this forum and all you lovely peeps at that time :)

    I can't even remember what my first post was :eek:

    I remember coming here about the time that we got Bluebell, maybe a little earlier.

    I either posted in something in Dog General or the section for newbies. Used to love Dog General but nowadays I just come here.

    I certainly do.

    But we won't go there because it would only mean dredging up a lot of ill feeling.:001_rolleyes:

    Needless to say, I'm still here, and despite the fact they've only eaten one person to date, the dogs are still here.

    So all's well that ends fairly well.:001_smile:

    My first post was in introductions.
    The reason I came here was I was given the link by a friend, who is now my girlfriend.
    and we both like animals, obvously lol, so a pet forum is a good place to be.

    my first post was about a puppy I had been offered, it was 6 weeks old and a staffy lurcher cross, I came here to get advice on that, and was advised it was too young. I stumbled across the forum by accident whilst googling about the cross and I opened a thread for my first post.

    Can't remember at all - and my search facility doesn't go back far enough to jog my memory.

    I can`t remember I think I just dived in and started posting cos I had an old account, my first post on that was an introduction. Back in 2011 when I originally joined with my very old account that I can`t even remember the username it was a question.
    Originally I came when I googled pet chat I think and hey ho PF comes up page 1. I got bored easily so left for about a year then joined under NewPuppyMum then came back as meee in February.

    I think I posted in Introductions first, which seems like a pretty standard thing to do. ;)

    I lurked on this forum for years before joining. What prompted me to sign up was leaving another dog forum (Dogsey) which went massively downhill. The admin bloke on there was a complete hypocrite - the list of 'rules' was huge and apparently he was able to break them but everyone else had to abide by them. Mentioning any other forum or social networking website was banned, even in private messages. Private messaging was then banned because people were 'found' (aka the admin had been reading PM's) to be discussing 'banned' websites. All the interesting members left the website and migrated elsewhere, leaving a horrifically dull forum in it's place where decent discussion is non-existent.

    So, I joined here. This forum is a million times more interesting with ton's of daily activity.

    Ooooh it was a long time ago but I think, apart from introductions, my first post was to ask about the 'silver' in Mai Tai's pedigree and why it was frowned upon by the GCCF

    Found it posted on 13th September 2008


    Hi Everyone I'm new, joined this morning.

    I live in Sutton Coldfield, and I'm "owned" by a beautiful 10 year old Briard called Amber. She is definitely the Boss in our house.
