    I often wondered if my emails were too long, hence not get replies. I had emailed 3 ppl about dogs in the Pet Rescue and Asher's carer was the only one who replied. But Asher was my pick of the 3 so I was happy to pursue for him before I attempted further contact for the others - one was a little border collie, the other a black german shepherd.

    I am always told I write too much and ppl can't be bothered reading it all so it probably likely gets ignored.

    Know what you mean. I am very aware that I could easily give Gone With the Wind a run for it's money! Lol.

    Sorry, I'm even more confused, Pug. I really don't get the point you are trying to make. Unless, of course, you are getting me mixed up with someone else who would presumably have a greater understanding of your strange posts.

    The woman did in fact return a very detailed completed questionnaire and I was unable to help her as my dog was quite unsuitable. However, I did (with her permission) send her enquiry and completed questionnaire on to other rescuers.

    I think Puggerup's point was, and I know I'd feel this way. If I'd just filled in a long and detailed questionaire, my cover email might be fairly short because I'd feel like you already knew all about me. Also if it took a lot of time, and Frosty started barking for attention, I might cut the email very short and to the point.

    But it wasn't a cover email.

    Sorry Flo, I don't think I worded my post very well Hyacinth explained it better.

    Anne, I think I sent you two enquiries and in the end you just got to know about me from the forums I don't think you connected my emails to me, which is understandable as I didn't put puggerup as my name on them

    I dare say non specific breed rescue would have a very hard time remembering who was who, but the people sending in enquiries would probably just want to make sure the dog in question was available before filling yet another form. That's how I did it in the end too.. I would just ask if the dog was available and if I got a response at all (which was next to never) I would then decide on if it was worth spending another half hour filling in a form which would never get responded to anyway. ONCE i got a response from Pet rescue and it was after the dog had been re-homed and the foster carer contacted me about a Cavalier she had. If it wasn't for little Bronson, I wouldn't have Miley right now.

    Considering I have three dogs on pet rescue (and another who has been homed), I would have to have a pretty poor brain not to remember whether someone had applied before.

    The emails I have received are just that, emails - not a cover email attaching an application form.

    Well in that case, perhaps they believe you are desperate to find the dogs homes and will give them to anyone, so you would even care to know about them at all. I have met people who think that They don't even understand why they should pay for the dogs.

    Hi Florence.

    I misunderstood. What I thought was happening, on some websites - you can fill out an online form and hit send/post - you can't attach one of these to an email though they usually have a spot where you can enter an email address.

    So imagine someone fills out one of these online forms and it takes ages and they hit post and it looks like it's all gone well - the page that says your information successfully submitted and all that, and the next day you've heard exactly nothing and being used to instant internet and making several leaps to conclusions that may or may not be correct, merely sends an email saying is the dog they like still available. So that is how the form and the email would be separated. The form they filled out would probably arrive by a separate email depending how the website was set up. And the only thing you'd have to match them would be the email and maybe not even that.

    Eg the default email on my mail client is usually different to what I type into web page forms. I've got at least six different emails I use depending on different circumstances.

    Again, quite very strange reasoning, puggerup.

    Perhaps if my ads were in the Trading Post, but they are entered on PetRescue in great detail.

    However, I'll leave it there. Some people just enjoy stirring, I think.
