Question Where have all the HF members gone?

I was just reading the "baby Stella" thread this morning (a bit bleary eyed). What I find interesting is that this thread started two years ago, but I don't recognize half the names who posted! I always wonder what happened to posters and their Havanese over the years. Some people were prolific posters just a couple of years ago, and then gone. I realize that life circumstances change and often quite rapidly, but does it happen so often that we have a 50% drop rate in only a couple of years? I would be interested in knowing, "whatever happened to baby Stella."

We are relative newbies, having been members of HF a little over a year. We don't plan on going anywhere but here to get the latest news and views about Havanese. I would hate to lose any of our current posters because they have become like family to me, Momi, and Ricky. When any one Havanese is successful in the competition ring, as a photographic model, achieving potty independence, or just simply the everyday goings on of a happy healthy dog, we can all enjoy, cheer, celebrate, and savor that accomplishment! When one of us succeeds, we all succeed, and we want to hear about it!

Happy 2016 to everyone and their doggies.

At one time, the Forum was much bigger. But a couple of years ago, someone started a "Havanese Forum" group on Face Book. Many people who prefer FB migrated over there. Some of those people still check in here from time to time, but things really slowed down.

While I like and use FB for other purposes, I didn't like the HF group on FB. The discussions are not threaded, and just scroll off the bottom to be lost forever. If you think the search function here on the forum is bad, you should try the FB search function!!! . Just about useless!!! Also the FB group became SO large that it was unwieldy. And people are not as nice to each other there as they are on The "real" HF. I don't find it the pleasant, helpful community that this is. There are a few smaller, regional or special interest Havanese FB groups that I do belong to, because the discussions held in them are of specific interest to me. But for my general Havanese community, I prefer this one!

I don't like Facebook either. I've tried a corgi forum and it's so hard to manage. I can't find anything on it. I much prefer a forum such as this one. It seems much more personal and I like that the threads are easy to read.

Well, it's not that I don't like FB... I Do use it and enjoy it. But not for this.

I like this forum as well. We may be small, but we are mighty, just like our Havs.

We have really been enjoying reading the threads in this forum and don't intend to ever leave! Here is a picture of Shama wearing the Christmas antlers that my sister gave her yesterday. This was the best picture we got in the six seconds or so that they were on her head. We love to see your pictures (hint, hint).
