Dogbook Birthday

I'm late to the whole social networking world. I really didn't think it was for me. I'm married. I'm not looking for a man. I'm not some college girl looking for a way to post drunk photos of myself on the Internet. So, what in the world do I need a social networking site like Facebook or MySpace for?

But my sister and a couple of other friends did some arm twisting and convinced me to give Facebook a try (MySpace really isn't for the 30 and over scene). No shock, it's only been a month and I'm somewhat addicted. Facebook has allowed me to reconnect with my best friend from middle school and we're gabbing like we did at our weekly sleepovers. Through Facebook I've found a way to stay connected regularly with my roommates from college. It's even helped me to take the time to say hi to my cousins who I don't see regularly, but think of often. So maybe there's something to this social networking stuff.

So what better way to celebrate Seka's fifth birthday than to create her own Facebook page? That's right - through the Dogbook application on Facebook, Seka can have her own page on Facebook with links to her own friends, a wall to receive comments, and a place to update her status. She has already been "friended" (social networking verb) by some of her greyhound friends that have their own Facebook pages as well. Who knows, maybe greyhounds will take over Facebook before you know it? Now I just need to get her typing lessons for her birthday!

Happy Birthday GreytBlackDog!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SEKA!!!!
This vehicle called the internet never ceases to amaze me. The world becomes smaller and smaller everytime I hear something new; namely, MySpace and recently Facebook. I learn and grow through my daughter-in-law, Heather. Thank You, my dear ...

Sam and Jacey are content (so far) to have me blog about them on Live Journal and Blogspot. Oh, and they have Dogster pages, too. If they want their own pages on Facebook, they need to learn to type.

Happy Birthday Seka!!! You are a very special hound to have your own Dogbook page. Is Roxy getting one too :-)!

I guess I failed to mention, that like most sisters - when one gets something special, the other gets it too. Yes, Roxy has her own Dogbook page as well :). Thanks for not forgetting her Zan :)

Ah Dogbook - too funny. I'll have to set up pages for Remi, Sugar and Lucy (as if I don't have enough to do). Happy Birthday Seka!

Patti, Remi, Sugar, and Lucy (and Savannah)

They do have Horsebook! Less has been a member for awhile... Limo has a page now, but she hasn't done anything with it. Too busy growling at everyone...
Get Clyde on horsebook!
