    do they? :unsure: sorry i thought you meant the iggy people because you said you dont ask for advice especially on the iggy forum and one would assume that the people on there whose advice youre asking would be iggy people?

    im sure your post wouldnt cause any arguments after all theres noone on there now to have any arguments with! :lol:

    The number of posts on this topic has been great.

    I am so glad that most of you are still lurking in the background ;)

    Personally, I find Facebook a fact of life but that is all. It does not have the depth of k9 and never will.

    Facebook is what it says on the packet, a social networking site.

    k9. remains on the whole a place where genuine sighthound folk can find good advice and keep in touch.

    I've had rescue whippy x's for five years but only had my full whippies for 2 years so I count myself a novice compared with the experience of others, although I grew up with working dogs. I have found a lot of the topics very informative and I do offer opinions without trying to be inflammatory, but that is all they are - my opinions. However, I have been jumped on from a great height both on the open forum and by pm, not because I have done anything dastardly, mean or cruel but because my thoughts differ from others, especially on one particular topic, which I'm not even going to mention! (NB Thanks to Eve for her invaluable advice on a subject which we did in the privacy of pm's!) It's a shame because it has made me think twice about posting anything at all and I do love this whippy world and I don't know anyone near me with this wonderful breed.

    I did do and I can hold my own with the best of them but it's not what I come on the forum for. I love everyone's pics, I laugh at the silly side of owning this lovely breed but I also really like the serious discussions and other peoples experiences can be invaluable to someone if they're having similar problems with their whippets. I suppose it's a case of just ignoring it if you are jumped on.

    This is the first time I've been on here probably for over a year - and I only logged in to share some sad news.

    The reason I left was exactly what everyone has been talking about on this thread - so much nastiness and bitching and I can really do without the drama tbb.

    So I added some nice folk on facebook and that's how I stay in touch with the pointy-dog folk these days...

    Of course I do think fondly back to the K9chat days - not least cuz that's where I met the lovely Borntohunt :D

    I'm brand new here (joined yesterday in fact!) and would just like to add my two penn'orth - if I may :))

    I've been reading up on such useful advice and information on this forum/community site over the last 2 weeks and have gained so much knowledge.

    I was delighted to find a forum where people are so friendly and helpful to each other - a bit sad that the greyhound forum itself is quiet, but that's not the end of the world.

    You see, we collect our first greyhound today and I joined up here because of the open-ness and humour too.

    So as a newbie I'd like to say, please don't feel too down because a New Year brings a new outlook and maybe the newbies who are regularly joining - along with the help of the regulars - can participate to help revive the site. :))

    I think that's about two penn'orth's worth (or however you spell it)! :teehee:

    Hi and welcome to K9. I think it is a great place, particularly when people need advice and information. :thumbsup: Good luck with your new greyhound.

    I also agree this forum has changed very quiet now...!!

    I also liked 'the whippet forum' but as i don't go on there that often i cann't log on and know one seems to care either...!! so i'am back on here so i can keep up with the showing world of whippets plus get advice when required...!!! :D

    I donn't always have time in the summer to go on all the forums with not just the dogs to show i've now got my self 2 mini shelts to get out and about too so i tend to use these forums in the winter as we do less...!!! is anyone else the same...?? :)

    Always lovely to welcome new members.

    This site is fantastic, I have met new friends (my dogs have too :D ) and had lots of wonderful help and advice.

    Very occassionally something controversial or down right unpleasant pops up but on the whole K9 is a wonderful site to visit and there is always someone to help. The greyhound section may be a bit thin but ask and someone will help if you need it.
