^this is exactly how I feel! I don't feel remembered. Maybe it's cause I'm "newer"...? I just would like to get to know people on here, some people on here are pretty good friends (whether in real life or not) but I feel like a lot of you guys are the only people who understand some of the things I go through as a GSD owner. It's refreshing, I guess I just am jealous some have made some good friendships on here! Maybe its cause I'm younger (22), yo no se! Anyways, I really do enjoy reading a lot of the regulars posts on here and seeing pictures. Hope some people look forward to my postings.

I just need to meet some real GSD people, bc since I'm young, many people don't share my love for this breed. They'd rather drink and party.

I swear I'm nice... LOL!

Meh! I quit worrying about whether or not I'm being noticed. At my age, I've been noticed enough, thanks. LOL What I care about is the information I get from checking out this site. Along the way, I find some nice people, and I try to be nice.

Yup. Know the feeling. Although my posts are answered. Usually. But I am jealous of some of you guys out there that seem like really good friends. This is the one place that can understand my obsession with Stella and her training. My dh would be happy to just let Stella do her thing....bark all day in the yard, lunge at other dogs...."oh just let her loose. She'll be fine"....kind of thing. So I really need this place!!!!

Oh and by the way....I started a thread in holistic health stuff....need info about flower essence treatment

How do you add info?

Oh believe me I know how you feel, lol. If I post something I know who exactly is going to respond... I've been trying to get some help/advice with Ollie but no one will respond so I just gave up and am trying to figure out on my own.

I come here because I don't have any dog people friends, I'd kill to have someone to hang out in RL with and go do "dog stuff" with. This place is the only place people understand my love of dogs but I can't hardly get anyone to interact with me. I try but my dog is half WGSL and I don't compete(he's only 5 months old) so right now I'm "only a pet person" which makes me less of a dog owner or whatever.

I try to respond to people's threads who respond to mine and also anybody who owns a LC. Seems like there's not a lot of people on this forum in the part of the country I'm in, seems everyone is Canadian or lives in the Midwest/east coast, LOL! I try not to take offense though, even I have been here long enough to see a huge influx of new people and I'm seeing less and less of the familiar names I used to see.

But anyways I read your posts and love seeing pics of Berlin! Also just wanted to note, when I post stuff about my dog I am not bragging nor do I think he is better then anyone else's dog. He is MY first GSD and I'm just having so much fun raising him, I just like sharing the adventure with folks especially since like I said above I don't have any RL people I can talk to about this stuff who also love dogs.

Yes we did. It was my thread, which ended up being the most viewed one I ever posted: I am a ghost here. Is it something I said??

GSDLover91, my lament was similar to yours, but I came to realize after awhile that a lot of people feel the same way we do. You ARE noticed, even when you think you aren't!

gsdlover91, I think we've all felt this way at times. Please keep this list handy, for those times you need to start a thread and really, really want people to engage.

Top Ten thread topics sure to get a response:

10. Why do show dogs have those horrible sloped backs?

9. How can I teach my puppy to protect me?

8. My vet said I should stick with Science Diet.

7. We’re making good progress on “sit” using the shock collar.

6. My spouse keeps telling me that GSDs were meant to stay outside.

5. Can I re-home him if his ears don’t stand up?

4. First fight!

3. Help! I taught my dog to bark at my wife, and now he won’t stop.

2. I want to switch to RAW, but I feel I should add some fruits and veggies.

And the #1 way to get someone to respond to your thread:

1. I agree with Cesar’s method for handling this problem.
