Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hi everyone!

I wanted to just let everyone know that while we appreciate and value Val's willingness and dedication to step up to Admin in our time of need, she is stepping down from that position for the best reason in the world: Baby Isabella! Her time is spent prioritizing her beautiful baby girl and doesn't want the forum to suffer for it; so without as much time as she'd like to dedicate to being an Administrator, she has asked to return to her role as Moderator and allow someone else to step up. We thank her for keeping the forum's best interests at heart, but will miss her as an Admin. Please help me thank Val for her service and, as always, continue to respect her as a Moderator of this forum Smile


The Administrative staff has discussed it at length and our vote was unanimous on who to bring up. We are asking Chris (Tika) to take Val's place. Even though he has been on our staff a short time, Chris has always acted and posted with a level-head, mature-thought-out responses, and put the well-being of the forum first. His knowledge of phpBB boards will certainly be a WELCOME addition to my administrative ranks and we are delighted that he has accepted the role of Administrator! Welcome, Chris! Very Happy


All of my decisions on this board are done with the consultation of my staff and no decision is made lightly or rashly. I do my best to keep this board a professional and mature corner of the internet. If anyone has any questions, they are welcome to PM them to me. However, please reserve this space as a place to welcome Chris to the role of Administrator and thank Val for her dedication and service to the forum Smile

All the best,
~Tori
Forum Owner & Administrator

Thank you very much Val for all your hard work. No one deserves to be an admin of this forum more then you do. You`re one of, if not, the most helpful and educational member here. I thank you for all your hard work and I know for sure you`ll still be around.

Also no one can begrudge you for stepping down... If I had a daughter half as cute as Isabella I would want to spend as much times with her as well, even if she didn't sleep last night and is driving you nuts today Razz.



I thank you for the trust I've been given and will do the best I can to uphold the ideals and direction this forum has developed and maintained over the years. It is truly a special place in a small corner of the internet, one of which I'm very proud to just be a member of.

Though I'm not the most active poster I do read everything and I thank all of you for inviting me, and Kelly, into your lives with all your great stories, pictures, and posts. The community and personality of this forum are what makes it great and why I continue to spends hours a day lurking and reading everything.

Thank you all again.
