I liked it well enough, but I think Chaz has more to offer in the way of information and knowledge over all.
My exact thoughts, too.

Pretty sure I googled "dog forums". I'm not active on any other animal forums, and at the time I went on a few music/band forums, so I figured I'd look for somewhere to talk about my gorgeous perfect angel puppy where my friends wouldn't want to kill me for it.

I use to visit video gaming forums many many years ago, to mostly help me get through the games without the use of system altering cheating devices that everyone else in my school was using. It didn't ever occur to me to join a "dog" forum till I started looking for my next dog, I knew I wasn't going to have my childhood companion much longer. I found Chaz on a Google search for Beaucerons, I also found another forum with the same search, and back then there really wasn't more than 20 pages total on Google for the search term "Beauceron". In the end, I joined the other forum because the member who was posting was more and more recently active there, and I'll admit the smaller community of people there was a more welcoming feel than the craziness of all the people here, still feels crazy at times especially with all the spam, oh well. Anyway, long story short, I've cyber-surfed Chaz for years but didn't join until I knew I might be able to answer another members questions and "Sizzle" didn't reply to my PM's on another forum, so here I am, and glad I joined, as it's the only forum I really visit anymore, far less "internet drama" here, and even with the recent bugs it's no nearly as unreliable as the originally unnamed forums last upgrade that ruined it for good.

And no, I did not invite all the people I know from that other forum here after I joined, I seriously couldn't tell you how that happened.

I was looking for information on Mountain Curs after I got Meg, and got here through Google searching and finding a thread on Gempress' Zeus (black mouth cur, but I think the term Mountain Cur came up somewhere in the thread).

This. Was on another forum, hated the drama, kept seeing chaz references and moved here. I was a member on a few other forums but eventually those faded away.

Probably good ol' Google!

It was right after my mom said I could get another dog. So I was researching breeds/puppy raising and eventually found myself here. I think I just lurked around for a brief period, left, and didn't really start visiting regularly until I got Lucy almost a year later.

I was a member of several other pet forums, but this is the one I've stuck with most and is probably my favorite!

Honestly I have no idea :-) its been waaaay too long

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

I really liked to do those "what breeds fit you best" tests so googled something to find those. I had done all of the tests so was on like page three of google results and a Chazhound thread was there where someone was asking what breeds would be best for them and since I was all out of online quizzes I was like cool I can ask real people what breeds fit me! So my first thread is one of those and is mostly a lie (insinuated I was an adult though looking back I doubt anyone fell for that, said I was about to get a dog, said I had a fenced in yard), I just wanted to have an idea of future breeds for me.

Then I started reading and liked the place.

I had never been to a forum before but I soon learned they are the best place for info, they have completely turned around the way I care for my pets, I can't imagine how different I'd be without them seeing how huge animals are in my life.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!

Google. Had just had Ozzy neutered I think, and was googling how to keep a dog quiet I believe.

I've always been on forums, but I Chaz is really the only one I stuck with. I was on another for a very long time, but it was more of a general forum vs specific interests. I rarely go anywhere else other than Chaz.
