How Many Hrs. a Week Do You Surf This Site?

I am getting seriously addicted to this forum to the point that I am not getting my work done. I feel like there is so much to learn, the more I read the more prepared I feel (though sometimes the more I read the more nervous I get because the health and training issues always freak me out a little).

Somehow the educational, informative aspect of spending time here has led to a situation I think I need a twelve step program for! I am logging in to check every little darn detail all day long. Who pooped where? Who's got a top knot? Is the new puppy sleeping through the night? Along with the more serious news and events.

I can't stop. Particularly if there are pictures.

What's the cure? I assume I'll have less time for this once puppy comes. Right?

It is fantastic.
I find myself thinking about some havs/owners when not on-line. Right now it is Maddie Laurief's rescue, but there have been times when a puppy is being picked up and I get excited about seeing the posted pics.

I was not on the forum for the first 7 mo. of having Henry, and he was my first dog ever. I just did not know about it.
I did pretty good without it as I hired trainers and read every book. As a matter of fact, I had my face in those books quite a bit.

Now I guess Henry and I just enjoy the forum and the playdates together.

I guess I do not surf enough, because there are PUPPIES I DID NOT KNOW ABOUT!!!

People are adding them like potato chips... whats going on. Just yesterday we were fighting over Hillary Clinton pant suits and having dinner with Palin in Wasilla.. now people are adding red puppies, and Mouse is one. Have I been in a coma?

Ok back to programming.. my rant is over.

My answer is I dont surf enough.

My DH is threatening to take away the computer except that he has a forum, too, and he is just as bad as me! Plus I have to have my computer to do work And I have to keep up with all the furballs!

I used to be on her TONS...but have taken on 2-3 new clients in the last month and can't get on here as much anymore.
I used to read almost every post. Now I actually have to work when I'm at home working. LOL

When I first found the forum, it seemed like 24/7. But I have been here so long, and I work more hours, so it is hard to be on as much. Sometimes I can get on a bit at work, and definitely a couple of hrs a night.

glad to see I'm not the only one. I gotta think at some point I'll actually have to get some stuff done. I would imagine puppy duties are going to mostly replace the hours I've been spending reading up on the posts here, unless I want to lose my job. I work at home also, so it is waaaay to easy to jump online and see what's up with no boss looking over my shoulder. I think they will notice when I stop turning the work in.

I guess since I don't have the little snugglebuns yet, this is my stand-in.

Oh you'll still be on Diane! Scooter just sits with me while I surf. I can't tell you how often I've found info on here that's saved me a call to the vet! I do spend lots of time on here but I find I'm so emotionally invested in all of these little dogs that I miss hearing about them and seeing photos!

I'm on several times per day! My husband can't say anything at all because he's a techie and either has his computer in his lap or he's on his iPhone. He does tease me about being on here though. Whenever we're wondering about something he says, "What do the forum people say?"

I used to be able to read most of the new posts, since i was on the forum every other hour. I've cut back quite a bit since; but try to go online every other day to see what's going on.

Too much. I work from home and sometimes I just have to close the forum so I stay on track. At night I have the computer on and check in off and much to learn, to read, share...yup, I am addicted.
