    Default Dol?!

    Ok guys so I know it is spoken of as "The Other Forum" but why???

    What is it like? Ive noticed they can be very nasty to "newbies" etc.

    Is it only for purebred dog owners or can anyone join?

    Are you a member and if so do you like it etc?

    I joined up there before I found this.
    Tbh since I joined here I haven't checked the forum once. I occasionally browse through the Puppy listings but I promise I'm 'just looking'! lol

    I was a member until a couple of years ago, too much behind the scenes backstabbing and bitching and nastiness.

    I much prefer it here, everyone is nice!

    Hey Judge,

    I thought a couple of ppl here had mentioned it was for purebreed dog owners etc, but I'm not sure? Maybe my memory is haywire???

    I've been on Dol for a fair while now. I prefer it for info, just because theres more posters. But I do like the people here
    Yes they can be nasty to new comers, which is why I dont post often.
    But to be honest I see this forum as a smaller verson of it.
    It is labeled as a purebred forum but alot of people own cross breeds either through rescue or byb/petstore (before they found out why they are a bad thing.

    It is called the other forum as most forums do not like other forums of their type, eg birds, dogs being named as it may take people away from them. I know ina bird forum I am in it is a bannable offence to link or name another bird site. Silly, yea, I think so but that is what the owners want and as they set it up that way people have the choice to abide by the rules or leave.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    DOL has a huge amount of members so unfortunately you are
    going to encounter people who don't share your opinion or who come across as nasty. I haven't found the bitchiness on there any worse than some of the comments I was reading on here a few months ago. That's where your own self control comes in and you learn to simply ignore and not reply if it's too over the top. It's a forum with lots of great topics and information. But I would imagine posting about your litter of crossbred restricted breed pups won't get you the same support as you got here.

    Forgot to add that it's not just for purebred dog owners they just don't
    promote bybers and designer dogs. Many people have xbred dogs and their
    rescue section makes a huge difference to so many animals lives with exposure they get.

    Nepotism plays a huge role there and I hope that never ever happens here
