I am devastated by your news Rob but I can understand why you have come to this decision. I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to you and Elise for starting this site as I have learnt so much from other members post's even though we didn't always agree on things.

I will miss logging on and especially looking at all the lovely photo's that have been posted.

Good luck to both you, your family and hounds and to all members and their hounds xx

Can understand Robb. Shocked though - where will we all go?

To answer my own question, we could start a Facebook Group. Anyone interested - if so suggest a name :)

Hello Rob,

I can understand you.

Maybe another member can continue the forum.
It would be a shame if the accumulated know about Deerhounds and the many beautiful pictures are lost.

Regards
Joerg and Yoki + Lucy

There is a facebook page up & running with nearly 150 members already called ( www.scottish-deerhound.com ). I agree with Joerg it would be such a shame to loose all this information. Anyone new to the breed would find it really helpful.

Many thanks to Rob & Elise for starting up and running the site for the last 5 years or so. I quite understand why you feel that it's time to finish the venture.

Like the others I agree that it would be a shame to lose all the accumulated knowledge and would urge everyone to think of ways of keeping this knowledge somehow. Maybe we could setup a read only web site where it could be archived to or distribute the details on DVD's. I would be willing to devote some time to such a venture.

It is unanimous that we all thank Rob for hosting & managing this site which has given many people the chance to air their views & keep in touch with others world wide. We owe him a great debt. :) I hope all hounds & owners find what they are looking for & enjoy health & happiness. As a small conciliation there is is a facebook page up & running with nearly 150 members already called ( www.scottish-deerhound.com ) which is not a patch on this site & again I agree with Joerg it would be such a shame to loose all this information. Many people would find the information recorded here really helpful.
I also wonder when these pages will disappear as I too will miss the banter & friendship, but I am on facebook (john wiggan) & information & photos of my hounds can be found on my website Lodhainn Deerhounds :) I WISH YOU ALL WELL :)

thanks to setting the site up and maintaining it....I'm relatively new to the Forum but found everyone's advice, tips and humour invaluable as a new DH owner/person owned by a DH! Hope to see some familiar names on Facebook. Thanks again!

Pity the site is closing down, but it's understandable. That'll be the end of reading and learning about Deerhounds for me. :(

Maybe someone with a little time on their hands could start a new forum here...

Noooo! oh dear, but can totally understand as it is time consuming. If I had a little more time myself I would offer to become Admin.

I have learnt so much from this site and 'met' some lovely people along the way.

I did set up scottish-deerhound.com on Facebook a couple of years ago, and it runs itself really, many of you contribute on there. Its nothing like this wonderful site we have here and for that Rob I will be eternally grateful.

Best wishes to you, to all of you and I hope to see you on Facebook!

How delightful! Three messages from this forum popped up on my phone this morning and I see the site is back in business. Thanks to Joerg for taking on the role of Global Moderator. Good of you Joerg. I am reminded of a Deerhound List I'm on in North America that went through a quiet period some time ago, to the point where the moderator suggested closing the list entirely. People really started stepping up after that, the lurkers began posting, and everyone made more of an effort. The List has been going strong ever since. I hope the same thing happens here. Hello fellow Deerhound enthusiasts. It's nice to be back!
