K9Cushings 10-year Reunion!
 
About this time in April, ten years ago, a group of canine Cushing’s parents from around the world were working sooooooo hard behind the scenes to prepare k9cushings.com for its official public “launch.” Years earlier, we had first formed a family on another website. Without explanation, one day the site owner shut down that forum and left us stunned, heartbroken and homeless. Out of the goodness of her heart, Natalie, your owner/administrator of k9diabetes.com, provided us with a temporary home and the opportunity to regroup. In essence, Natalie saved us! The postings from our time spent with all of you still remain as an archived forum here on K9D.

But after a ton of learning and experimenting, regrouping is exactly what we did! On May 20, 2009, k9cushings.com posted our official “Welcome” and opened our doors to all Cushparents, everywhere. At that moment, our temporary home here was shuttered, but our gratitude forever remains. And our relationship with K9D is still unbroken. Throughout the years, our two forums have “shared” a number of dual diagnosis dogs who have suffered from both diabetes and Cushing’s.

Time marches on, and many of our precious pups are now beside us in spirit only. Understandably, folks have moved on with their lives. But we’re hoping that perhaps some of our old friends who still remain here on K9D will return and post a note on our reunion thread. Share a memory, share a smile, shed a tear. Most of all, to honor all our dogs and their bravery.

So please, any K9C “alumni” who may read this post, please feel free to join us on our reunion thread and add a note. We’d love to see you, and to share some memories! Here’s the link:

Congratulations to you all! :)

If you're like me, it's amazing how many years it's been and how it all seems like yesterday at the same time!

Absolutely so true, Natalie! It really took a village to get us up and running, and for sure you were one of our founding mothers :). Not only with providing us with a temporary home here, but also with all the technical issues involved with setting up the new site.

The really neat part was that it was truly a consortium of friends from all around the world. Any time, day or night, somebody was checking in or tweaking things from somewhere. So much energy, like a beehive!

I miss that, and those people, very much. But I feel so lucky to have had the experience and to have been a part of that family, even if only for a moment in time...:o
