New PETS sub-forum

Postby BillMiddlebrook » Sat Aug 18, 2012 7:29 am

To keep from clogging up all of the other forums sections with the never-ending dog threads, I've created "Pets on Peaks." I'll go back though the forum and try to move as many dogs threads as I can find.

With all of them in the same place, it's easier to hide pet threads on the home page by changing your Display Settings (link also on home page).

Oh, thank you!!! Is it too early to hope that this will limit the number of "Can my dog hike X Trail/Peak/Ridge"? Yeah... maybe not. :lol:
Such things for example as the grasp of a child's hand in your own, the flavor of an apple, the embrace of a friend or lover...sunlight on rock and leaves, the feel of music, the bark of a tree, the abrasion of granite and sand, the plunge of clear water into a pool, the face of the wind--- what else is there? What else do we need?

Two questions:

1. Will a gun sub-forum be next?

2. Can my dog hike Denver City Park?

That's dog gone discriminatory.

But still, a great dane in forum history.

Excellent, and thank you. I never knew I could change my settings to only show certain topics. Just unchecked the Pets on Peaks topic, so maybe that will prevent me from getting irritated by seeing pictures of dogs on summits.

Great idea! I like it.

I say make all dog threads invisible on the home page regardless of settings. If folks want to debate how lucky Missy is or any number of other topics unrelated to human mountaineering, it's your server space! But as a long-time member of your amazing site who hasn't groveled and begged in a few years, please use your powers for good -- make this a hiking forum again! I honestly fear losing our best mountaineers to a runaway forum. Thank you for your consideration. Oh, do this and that check for operating costs is in the mail!

I'm a dog guy, and I like hiking and climbing with my dog (naturally). Even I've been overwhelmed with dog stuff on here in the past week, but I strongly suspect it will die down again soon. The dozen or so new members who joined the site because of the Sawtooth dog will probably be heading elsewhere soon, unless they have some other interest in mountaineering. The fur can only fly for so long.

I was even (originally) thinking of starting a thread on dog rescue equipment, to toss around ideas I had that I'd like to discuss with others who (actually) hike with their larger dogs. I've decided to wait some time before starting such a thread, due to the doggone frenzy of dog threads we're currently seeing.

It will pass though, just watch. And, when it passes the mountaineers will still be here (debating politics, guns, beer, hot tubs on summits, Bill Middlebrook's apparent faults, and sometimes mountaineering).
