My parents know, some friends know, some acquaintances know. If my parents didn't know, there'd be no way to explain flying to Florida... Or NY. Or IN. Hah . Or having somebody come to get a puppy and meeting them. Or all the packages Rosey gets.

Yeah that's one reason why I've never done any gift swaps... never had a way to explain why I was receiving a package, or even more strange... why I was sending a package!

Not any good ones anyway.

I don't like saying "a friend of mine" because if they ask how you know them then you either have to lie or admit they're a stranger you type to on the internet... which is way worse than just admitting you read it on the net to begin with IMO

I mention it very rarely to family if I have to. It isn't particularly well received lol.

Just Em and only on occasion. Emily does forums too so it's not weird to her. To everyone else 'I know someone...' I don't talk dogs much with non dog friends/coworkers. At least not beyond basic stories and stuff. I always am trying to explain training class to people and that it's not dog with behavior problems training. I tried explaining agility to a coworker and got a blank stare.

Oh I don't call it chaz... Just "my dog forum". Or, if you're on my Facebook, it becomes "my friend..."

I usually say "someone from the dog forum I'm on" if it's a person I talk to rarely. Otherwise the regulars I talk with and am friends with on facebook get called friends. People already know I'm crazy about nail polish, why not dogs too?

I often say "someone from my dog board..." in conversations to my mom. She also knows a few chazzers and dogs by name now, because those are the dogs I share the most with her.

But other than with her, I try not to bring up people from online/dog boards very much because people would think that was odd. For people like that I usually say something like "someone I know with such and such a problem did this", or "someone I know has an 'insert breed' and...". It's just easier that way. Sometimes I'll say "an online friend said...", but I think I usually only use that with my mom too. A couple of other people know I spend time on a couple of dog boards (my grandma, the Dobermans' breeder and maybe a couple others), but I don't generally bring it up with them unless I feel it's really relevant to the conversation.
