Has anyone here been in touch with any of the board moderators who might know what the problem is?
We are working on it, and we are very glad you looked here. If you have email or any other way to contact other members please direct them here for the time being. And ask anyone you contact to reach out to their contacts.

Adding--when I Google "canine cushings board" one of the hits on the first page is to the Pet Diabetes Wiki page on Cushing's:

"Cushing's disease - Pet Diabetes
"Another health problem for canine Cushing's patients is high blood pressure ... Canine Cushing's Message Board where help and support are available. ..."

http://petdiabetes.wikia.com/wiki/Cushing's_disease

At present, the link is to cc.net.
Kathy, that sounds like a great idea. I was just about to offer to put a link on my links page, but I'm not sure exactly how to show that link! Could you show me how?

Not that I get a lot of traffic, but I do get a little.

Then also, I wondered. I joined the CCAC group a few days ago; they have around 4000 members; I'm only there to study, same as on cc.net; I don't have any cushpups. But - how about an announcement on that group? I believe the group owner would go for it. I could always ask permission before posting. Maybe some of you are on that list too:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Canine...utoimmuneCare/

As you know, I already link to k9diabetes on my links page, and also, on every main page on my site (right-hand side links). But that doesn't indicate how to find cc.net for now.

I can change that page very quickly; just need to know to do it, and how to post the link.

Also, when the time comes, I can change the link very quickly to return to the original cc.net.

I got the links, and I'm gong to put the temporary link on my home page on Coherent Dog. My visitors are mostly in dog-behavior and training, but numbers of ones concerning diabetes as well, among them some of my friends who are, I believe, on cc.net

I'll go put that on my site; you never know - and be ready to change the link back to the original cc.net one when the time comes.

By the way, I also refer to the Pet Diabetes Wiki.

The Yahoo Directory--the cc.net site is still the link. You can suggest a site:

http://add.yahoo.com/fast/add?28479876

But no time guarantee without the $300.

Hahaha - I've been reminded very politely and in a very friendly way, privately, that it's odd for one Italian restaurant to advertise another! (well-put!) All the same, you cc.net people might like to know the owner of CCAC thinks highly of your site!

But somehow, I thought it might be going a BIT too far to post there, so instead, I HAVE put on my main page a pointer to cc.net here at its temporary host, and I put it on my links page as well.

As soon as cc.net comes back up, I'll change those announcements, and expect to leave the pointer to CanineCushings net on my links pages, because it's so commonly associated with diabetes. That is, of course, I'll point to the original site, rather than it's temporary version here.

Hi,

This is exactly the kind of response I was hoping for when I mentioned the 'google' thing! I have no idea how these things work and was hoping someone else would. Before I got up this morning I was thinking that if we put different phrases in that people might be googling like 'where has the canine cushings forum gone?' it might lead them here but that would be too simple! I have tried it by picking out sentences from this thread but it didn't work. We need a real computer geek to sort this out, apologies to all computer geeks out there!!

Linda and Spicey

Hi ya'll,

Great work everyone! And I am so glad to see more cc.net members here today!!

I have set up pages at FaceBook and MySpace under the name of 'CanineCushing's net members'. I joined the two Cushing's groups on FaceBook this morning with posts to help members find their way here. If you are members at either place, join and pass the word on to all you know. Or set up your own pages using "Canine Cushin's" in the name.

Also Kim has set up a blog that will help get "hits" when folks search for 'canine Cushing's' or our group. The more we can post on places and mention the group name plus canine Cushing's or anything related, the better the odds of folks finding us here. Here is the link to her blog:

http://cushmom.wordpress.com/

As the resident techno idiot, I have just about exhausted my ideas of reaching folks so if there is anything more I can do, please tell me how.

Hugs,
Leslie and the girls

Steph and Pallie are here!

Pallie's hanging tough. I'm taking her to the vet today to check another believed-to-be lipoma. Otherwise she's hanging in there pretty good.

Hope everyone had a great Easter/Passover.

Thank you, thank you Natalie for making room for us on this site!

I just started my dog Joe on Lysodren loading yesterday and came online looking for a little moral support and eeek! - no caninecushings.com.

So far Joe is doing fine, no adverse reactions to the drug, still eating, drinking & peeing & me looking on nervously, waiting for 'the sign' of when to stop.

Such a relief to know I have a place to come where people understand...

Thanks again & fingers crossed that the website is soon up & running again.

Karen & Joe
