I am wondering how many dogs you own. I have 2 golden retrievers. They are so much fun and keep me going all day. Then at the end of the day have a nice rest. Do you have many dogs? Post pictures if you have taken any .

Hi All,

I'm new here. It's very interesting to read what all you guys have to say. We have 3 dogs and love them all equally.

I haven't read the original post, but I thought that they asked to post pictures if we could. How come I was the only one?????????????????:confused:

Same as my human child I do not post pictures of my family dogs or otherwise online, so there's my reason.

Because it's a public message board, photos can be stolen and there are crazy people out there. I don't post my address, phone number, or family pictures on anything that is open to the public, nowadays it's just too dangerous IMO. Personally I'd rather be safe than sorry.

True. There's a small group of women from Petfinders who were doing some really nasty things with photos posted on their forum. I posted a couple of my dogs and one made it's rounds through their own hateful little forums they made. They were bashing me and told everyone I fed my dogs Purina dog chow. As if it really cared what they thought I fed my dogs. They took photos of other PF members and their kids, and posted them on websites. Not a real nice bunch to deal with. A few of them were actually stalking people, posting the real names, addresses, phone numbers etc on their forum. They were calling employers and shelters, put some of us on DNA lists too. The police got involved since one woman went overboard with it and made threats. Petfinders never did anything to stop it, and it still goes on! Anyone who posts on Petfinders does at their own risk, and if they are on this forum, they'll do the exact same thing to the people here.

But if they want to post my dogs photos, let them, no harm done. Are they going to steal my dogs identity and ruin their lives? Nope.

When I first saw your name here, I thought you were on the Petfinders forum too! If so, you know which group I'm talking about.

If that's directed at me I didn't even know Petfinder had a forum so nope that's not me and I have NO idea what group you're talking about since I didn't know they existed until 30 seconds ago LoL.

Personally I treat my dog's identities as my child, can someone steal his identity from a picture? Of course not, but regardless I don't want my son's, my dog's or anyone else I know pictures posted on the net without my permission. People may find out where you live and identify you by the dog you're walking or whatever, it's simply another tool and means by which to identify someone and since, as you pointed out with a real life scenario, the internet isn't such a nice place at times, I prefer to keep personal photos just that...personal. Or at least choose who I share them with and not the entire world.

WOW! I just didn't realize! I guess it maybe is because my dogs are just family pets, and I don't breed, or show, that I never paid attention.

There's someone on PF that uses a nickname very similar to yours but it's not an uncommon nickname. I know a boxermommy who's local to me too. So when I first saw your name here, I wondered if you posted there too. Since you don't, then you don't know of the mess that went on there a couple years ago.

I'd never post my kids pictures here, or mine, but I don't mind sharing my dogs.

I don't breed or show either, my dogs are rescues and just family pets.
