Posting Access:
All Members
Created on November 4th, 2003

This is a community for all things canine.

Some ideas on what to post...

Pictures of your dogs
Pictures of dogs for adoption on Pet Finder
Stories about your dogs
All canine related questions
Dog related jokes
The protection of wolves, other wild canines, etc.
The debate of ever increasingly popular breed bans
Dog abuse alerts
Upcoming dog related programs on television
Dog related livejournal icons
Your dog related web site
Ads if your dog is up for adoption
Mixed breed (guess that mix) requests
Open suggestions on what breed is best for you
Support for the loss of a beloved dog.
Support for the grieving owner.

And most of all have fun!


*The Rules*

1. Be nice to each other.

2. After posting two pictures please put the rest behind a cut. It will save the loading time of the community itself and the people with slower connections will appreciate it.

3. Do not post just to start drama.

4. Do not make a new LJ once you get banned to rejoin. You know who you are.

5. There is a three strikes rule. You get banned for a week for the first one. Banned for a month the second time. Third time you're gone for good.

6. Do not delete comments, yours or others. That's not to be tolerated here. If you do it, you're banned for good.

7. If a post is made to start drama, I will delete the post. Inadvertently or not. You will get a warning about it. Save the drama posts for the drama communities.

8. Do not delete your posts.

9. Do not freeze comments/threads.

10. If you do either 8 or 9, there is no second chance. You are banned for good. If you do number 4 because I have banned you and find out about it, LJ abuse will have a talk with you. And you'll be banned again.
