Doggy Stories...how to do that on the new forum?
« on: May 06, 2012, 04:01:22 PM »

Good Morning, Penel and all,

I would like to re-do CeeCee's story concerning her disease process and her recovery and put it on this forum.  I believe it has helped folks dealing with Evans Syndrome in the past.  Can you tell me how to get it on and how you would want it labeled?

Learning all the time!

Hi Joanne,
this is great, we'd like everyone who has written their dogs stories to put them on the new forum.
We've made a section just for this
http://cimda.co.uk/smf/index.php/board,13.0.html
you should click on New Topic - and away you go.

If your story is already on the Yahoo group in the Files, then you can either copy it from there - and paste to Our Dogs stories section on here - or ask me and I'll do it for you.

I think it would be good to label it with your dogs name, breed, and the disease they had.

Hope this helps, let me know if you need any more help.

Do you think Lola's story (sad as it is, but also triumphant in it's way) would be helpful? Do we need permission? and how about length...something readable. I would wonder how to keep it short  :-\

Also do you still want us to sign in a certain way, like with our dogs name, illness, and whereabouts? I admit I have gotten sloppy about that, sorry.

Hi Gail,
we don't mind - whatever you want to do is fine.  Nope you don't need permission.  Readable would be good yes  ;)

Signature it's up to you - there's a bit in your account profile that lets you add it there, so it is automatically at the bottom of every post for you, much easier.

Yes Please.  All stories very welcome.  Real life stories are such a comfort to those who are going through a bad time with their dogs.  It gives them so much hope.  Even the ones that don't end happily have a lessen to share.

We do have so many happie endings too!

Thanks Jo. I was going to ask Penel to clarify her answer since she said 'we don't mind' I thought it meant that Lola's story would not really be what she wanted to see included, but didn't mind if I did write it up. So I actually dismissed it. Misunderstanding, I think, on my part.

Penel,

I attempted to move Cee's story from the old group to the new forum...no success!  Would you mind doing it for me?  It has the pics already in place in the document and it is copyrighted.  I will gladly add an update to this story when the original is in place.  Sorry to be such a bother....

hi Joanne,
I'm trying to do it  - you saved it as a pdf, as opposed to a .doc (word doc) which makes it a little bit harder. I could save it as an attachment here on the new forum, but I'd prefer to be able to copy and paste it ideally.  Do you still have it on your computer as a .doc?
