Sorry for Forum Problems

I want to apologize to everyone for the forum being down.

Over the last month, things have been going wacky, and its basically because the severs are overloaded with so much action. Thats a good thing! I had to move the forum to a more dedicated server. Or my hosting company did, which is a great company, very patient with all the problems.

When the forum crashed, I was at the hospital and my hands were tied. My grandmother had a stroke and is about to pass away, so I just had to turn the forum off until I could get it up and running.

It had to be restored to April 27th, so anything posted after that is gone.
If you are missing images etc... Im sorry they may or may not be back.

I had two options, either run the forum with no image uploads and attachments or upgrade it to the new server. I did not see how we could have a forum and not see lots of photos of the cute pups!

I still need to do some maintenance work, although I dont know when. Im packing up my house and studio and getting ready to move to Idaho. The drive across country depends on the timing of my Grandmothers death. Needless to say the next week or two will be swamped for me.

SO thats what is going on with the forum and with me. If you all encounter any problems, please let me know. I will try to respond right away, but I am currently trying to not lose my mind.

Melissa, I'm very sorry to hear about your grandmother and that you had to deal with this during this time. You've really had a tough time of it over the past year. I hope things start getting better soon. Thanks for taking the time to get this back up and running while dealing with everything else in your life.

Wow, Melissa! I have several comments:

1. How is your Grandma? I am sorry for your family.
2. I often go days without getting on this site, but when it is off line, I am at a loss.
3. Thank you Melissa, for all you have done here.
4. I consider many of you friends. I can't imagine how I would feel if we could not contact each other.

Thank you everyone! And I am doing OK.... my grandmother is a strong lady, but she is 90 and my dads death last month really took a toll on her. Losing a child, and at her age, was not easy. She is basically not aware of anything. Hospice is taking good care of her, and she is going through the process of death.

And because I like to challenge myself, between my dads death and my grandmothers stroke, I left my boyfriend of ten years, and now am a single girl!!!
This means no more fancy trips, but I am moving to Idaho so I can be closer to the parks. I will open a studio there... I have a big house I leased, I still say we have a Hav Forum CONVENTION!

Thanks so much for all the support and nice emails and pms I have been getting, it is appreciated!!!!

I am very sorry to hear about your Grandmother. They are greatest.

No problem with regard to the Forum - family first. A lessen learned by me again. Do not take things for granted. I missed it this morning and was frightened that it was gone. Thank you as always for this wonderful site and all of the hard work you put into it and the calenders.

thanks so much for attending to that even with all the stuff going on in your personal life. Those of us with recent puppies or about to bring home puppies are VERY grateful, I would be lost without this site.

I'm sorry to hear about your grandmother. Blessings on her journey! And for you in your new life. Change is good.

Wow Melissa, talk about redefining yourself! That takes a lot of guts. I realize some of these experiences are not by choice but you've got a lot of guts girl and I applaud the steps you're taking. Hang in there. A Idaho Hav Forum Convention is a grand idea!!!
