Sorry to see this go, but I understand why. Thank you GAD for creating this forum, it was invaluable to me as a first time newf owner way back when! LOL.
As for the Facebook alternatives, there are many, but I have to say the best educational one is called NEWFOUNDLAND DOG OWNERS FORUM. There are over 17,000 international members, many came from this forum.
This makes me so sad, but I totally understand. Newf Net changed me in so many positive ways. GAD, you and your monitors are saints in my book. A memory I love was the Newf Net Army protecting everyone from the Nefarious Cats. So many laughs. Such a profound source of support. God bless you all.
This is very sad to see,this was the very first site I joined when I got Ted and received some great advice. If people are looking for an alternative and many of you probably know there is Newfoundland Dog Owners site on FB
I and NewfMom are some of the very early members too. My favorite memories are the reunions. They have been awesome. I have missed them and the OC get togethers very much since moving to WA state. Just don't have them out here. We have gotten so much help for Kimber, Moose, Kilrain, Katala, and Valentino on this list, we would have been lost with out this board. I wonder if a group on FB for those here would work.
I just received birthday wishes today from newfnet and it is one of the few places to remember! This forum has helped me with everything Newfoundland and more! I've met some wonderful online friends. I haven't posted or logged in for a while and wish this forum and archives could be incorporated into another format, like FB, for continuing education and friendship. Thank you GAD et al for this marvelous support.
I just wanted to say how sad I am to read that the forum is closing. It's been a great resource over the years and i learned a great deal. Thank you to everyone who answered any post I put up over the years, as well as to GAD and the Moderators who did an outstanding job over these many years.
Ha, I don't check in too often and am surprised by the news but completely understand. I am glad a lot of the valuable info will still be available. (reason I am on site today) Thank you for that! I cannot stress how much I learned from everyone when we first got Rocky. Thank you!!!
