Congrats VertiGoGo! A long slog, but worth it, eh?
(Just think how many you'd have had by now if you owned a few doxies? And liked talking about them at this forum? Yikes!)
BTW...there doesn't seem to be any sort of prize or award when you hit one thousand. Or two thousand, for that matter.
And all of you out there with low triple or double digits beside your name should not let that stop you from saying whatever you want. As far as I can tell, there's not much rank or priviledge here at ehmac, even for the people with the big numbers.
VGG, with four doxies I could spare one. Pick a number between one and four, and then the corresponding doxie will be sent to you free of charge. You may send the doxie home when you reach post #5000, or when you go insane
Thank you for your concern, VGG, but remember what Dachshund stand for in German -- "Badger hound". Thus, anything that would dig down into a badger, nose first, with the intention of grabbing hold of a badger to pull it out of the hole is probably not going to fear a cat. Of course, I would not want a confrontation either, so your decision is wise.
