Um, yeah I usually call them "people I know" or sometimes "friends" if it is someone on here who I talk to a lot and feel like we would hang out if we lived close.

And considering both of the assistant managers at my work now have accounts here, yeah...I talk about it a lot. And now when I'm talking about someone they'll be like, "Are they on Chaz?" and I'm like YAY! Plan=working!!

Also the other day peaceful_minion (one of my coworkers) was like:
"There's a person on Chaz with a wirehaired Ibizan hound!"
And I was like: "That's Whiskey's owner!!!"

That probably sounds really lame, but I remember it as being cool. Don't judge.

Oh and like Fran on the occasion I do mention someone from here, it's in an obtuse sort of way, like "A friend of mine..." and since I've moved so many times I'm pretty sure they just assume it's a friend from a previous state. Often it is. But sometimes...sometimes it's Chaz

I have mentioned it to my dad.

I've mentioned some topics from here at work when it was slow just to see what coworkers say.

But usually I don't. When I mention it to my dad I don't call it Chaz I call it 'my dog forum' XD

I don't want anyone I know to come to my internet safe place.

I don't really tell anyone about forums. My mom has a 'don't ask don't tell' thing..she knows probably but doesn't ask about it. I get mail from Kaley in Georgia and she just leaves it for me, haha! If it comes up, and someone thinks I'm crazy, I'll point out guys on car or video game forums haha.

A handful of people know about "the dog forum I'm on." Good friends or other nerds (one of my radio co-workers came up one day and was like "are you on a forum? I'm on forums too.") and my parents.
Usually when I'm talking about people here it's either "I know this girl with such-and-such" or "my friend with such-and-such." Fair warning, if you're on my Facebook, it's Facebook official, you're my friend. >=|

I think most people my age that have intense hobbies tend to be on forums so I don't really ever worry about them judging.

And Fran, I did the same thing to my FB. Mainly because I felt bad for the people getting inundated with dog stuff. I have my 'none dog friends' list and always block them from seeing all dog stuff.

But I will say, some of my none dog friends are really big into different things like Roller Derby, Cars, Babies, Weird dress/doll things, Fiesta Wear etc. And I really kinda enjoy reading all about that stuff. It's fun learning and seeing their passions so I hope they never block me from it like I've done them

This! One of my best friends is just as dog nerdy as I am and I think I have mentioned to her "this one dog website I'm on", but I just hope and pray she never asks me what it's called because then I will feel violated lol.
Sometimes I worry though that she will just come across it in a Google search and see a pic of Juno, put it all together and then there will be nothing I can do to hide!

Nope, LOL. I mean, not really. I don't really think any of my friends or family would CARE or make fun, but it's just kind of .... my thing, and my place to go where I can talk about them (LOL) or vent, etc. So I don't really want them to know what I'm doing. My family knows that I know a lot about dogs, they know I have a YouTube channel with Jackson videos on it, but to the extent of how involved I am with all of you guys? No ...

When I went to Arlington to meet up with a few Chazzers, I told my mom I was going with my two dog park friends (which was true, they did come along). Not to mention, I didn't even tell THEM (the two friends) the extent of who I was going to meet, lol. I just told them there was this "dog group" that I joined online and was meeting up, and they never asked anymore questions, hahaha.

It's not like I met any of my current friends on here or anything.
