Herbie's Mum, I am so glad that you are able to laugh at this. I was absolutely appalled when I came on and read the messages I had received from one of our other Moderators. As you also stated, there are far bigger issues in this life than a few stolen photos. However, I would be quite annoyed if it happened to me.
This is not the first time this has happened, and ironically, I noticed "Artemis" when they first joined. I thought the bio was suspect, but there was no clear evidence of a fake in progress so there was little I could do.
I loved the videos. Herbie is just adorable. A friend of mine has a Corgi, "Taffy" who is the light of her life. I can see what a character Herbie is, and I love the name. The "Love Bug" series of movies were a favourite of mine as a child.
It also occurred to me that since Herbie is now more than a year old, she could be featured as a "Grown Up Puppy of the Day". I'm sure the other Mods would be on board with me for pushing for that to happen. You seem to have loads of great photos (I love the hat and tie) so please try submitting Herbie for that. As a rule, we Mods have no say whatsoever as to whom is featured but in this case, I think we might be able to "put in a good word".
With the exception of the immature children, who seem to make their presence known more during the holidays (bored and unsupervised), the rest of us are quite a friendly group. Congratulations on winning the contest for the Pet Food Store.
