I absolutely love the Canine Journal Facebook page. The pictures bring a smile to my face and the tips are spot-on. As a dog lover, I enjoy learning as much as I can and who doesn't love seeing funny pictures of fur babies? I also love the fact that the page sends such a strong message about the importance of adoption and spaying and neutering. There are so many wonderful pets that die each year. I really wish more people would adopt rather than turning to pet shops or breeders. There are so many great dogs to be found in shelters. You can find pure bred dogs and even puppies, all of which need a great home.

I lost two dogs in a little over a year and it was so hard. Looking at your page makes me smile and reminds me that I still have so much love to give to an adopted dog. I will be stopping by your page every day for daily smiles and informative tips. I will also be sharing your great photos with my friends. Thanks for such a wonderful page. I think it's something that all dog owners will love and I'll certainly be sharing it with my friends.

Thank you, Canine Journal! Your Facebook fan page is just as cool and helpful as your blog is, and even more interactive. Through the site, I have gotten all sorts of great information and helpful tips, and I feel like I am becoming part of a great community. The other fans, and the Canine Journal moderators, all put so much care and thought into what they share that I know I can trust the stories and advice to be completely genuine.

My questions have all been answered or led to real discussions that had substance, which is what I need in order to make informed choices, and I am glad to have this group to turn to. I have even been inspired by some of the featured pet charities to become somewhat more of a pet activist, and help out with the good work that is being done to help pets in my own town. I hope everyone will come to recognize how great and helpful your Facebook page is, just like your blog. And if not, well, people can at least like the dog and puppy pictures!

This is so cool.  I'm so happy for you!  I think that Facebook is the perfect place for you guys to move around in.  I think that there is so much good information on your blog, and I think that every dog owner should know that it exists.  I mean, you're basically a reference site at this point in my household.  You keep us updated on so many things.  There are only a handful of dog sites that do that without shamelessly hocking products, so we are very happy that we can show our appreciation for you on Facebook.  I'm going to make sure that you have access to post your updates on my wall and that I support you in every way that I can.  I really appreciate when blogs take on such a caring role when it comes to dogs.  You guys have to be dog owners yourselves, because only dog owners can understand how much a pet is like family.  I mean other people say that they understand, then they make fun of us behind our back.  You guys have respect for the dog owner and I'll always appreciate that.

I really like that Canine Journal has made the move to get onto Facebook.  I am obviously a pretty big fan of dogs, so the content they are putting out there with all the pictures and tips on dogs are a big attraction for people like me.  But more importantly, I think Facebook is a great venue to advertise and raise awareness for fund raisers and other charitable events that they take on each and every month. 

I have found from experience that Facebook is a great way to get more people involved in all kinds of volunteer activities and I am sure the folks over at Canine Journal will find themselves experiencing similar success.  With a strong fan base, you can really reach out to a lot of people very quickly and get them interested in contributing either their efforts or their dollars when the situation calls for it.
I for sure will become a fan of the blog on their new Facebook page and I will strongly encourage my friends to do so as well.

I have been a reader of Canine Journal for quite some time now and I really like the content that they have to offer there.  As a dog owner and lover, I really find it pretty easy to get enthused about this sort of thing so you can imagine my excitement to hear that they now have a Facebook page that I can become a fan of so that I can get more of their updates when I check my own page.

I find Facebook to be a more daily stop on my web-dial than nearly any other page and I like that fact that other fans of the site can “like” different things and I can more readily see what is popular.  I can also “like” certain things on their Facebook page so that I can share them more easily with my friends and they can potentially become fans as well.

I think really every blog should have a Facebook page these days to capture more viewers and Canine Journal is a great addition to the Facebook landscape. I will invite my friends too!

Okay, I read this and could not even resist: I immediately got on Facebook and clicked “Like”! The photos on this page are adorable, to be sure, but after “Awwwing” over them for a while, I read some of the blog posts and articles shared on the page and was hooked. There are tons of tidbits and posts answering all kinds of questions that I had about dogs and puppies, and the page really serves as a place of community support.

Rather than disseminating information, there is a definite sense of camaraderie among dog owners, as evidenced by the posts and mentions from others about A Pups Life. It gave me a real sense that if I had a question or concern, no matter how small, people would be there, willing to offer answers and support. Yes, it is a shame that there are so many unwanted pets out there, but supporting the Humane Society and promoting responsible pet ownership are important causes that make a difference. I knew immediately that this blog and website were important resources in helping pets everywhere find homes and better lives, and I am so glad I did it!

I had to pass this along to a couple of my friends. They are those people who post at least ten pet pics a day on their Facebook page. Some of them are very disturbing, so I am hoping they swing by your page and spend some time there so maybe they won't spend as much time posting the gory pics.

I do understand why people post those. It is a sure way to get attention for a cause they believe in. What they don't understand is that the very people who would hurt an animal are the same people who actually enjoy seeing evidence that there are other sickos out there just like them.

I think the humane society is a wonderful cause. I know the one in my area always seems to be overwhelmed and in pretty sad shape. We even got a pet there once that died within a week. I think the lack of funds leads to a lack of well trained employees as well as a lack of items that are vital to keeping the project going. I really enjoy coming to this site and learning about pets, so I am glad to see you are also a compassionate group.

I think this is awesome that a company would do this. In fact this is probably the only legitimate offer like this that I've heard about on Facebook.

I have noticed a trend of people doing more for animals using Facebook. I see a lot of posts about animals that need rescue from shelters, and I also see a lot of posts about abused animals. I hate the fact that some of those posts are really graphic, but I suppose that may be what it takes for people to do anything sometimes.

I think that more companies are using Facebook today not just to promote products but to offer valid information. I think it's great that Canine Journal in particular has a Facebook page because I think you really have a lot of information that pet owners would appreciate. Since people do use Facebook so much, it's also a great way for new pet owners to share their stories and to learn from the experience of others. I know I will be "liking" the Canine Journal Facebook page myself and plan to encourage my friends do the same. I look forward to learning more about pets and sharing my own experience with my animals via Facebook.
