I wrote the first reply on here last night, but I deleted it after some thought. This is gonna be a long one, so skip ahead if your not interested in reading a small novel.
Michael and Jaimie, I too wish you guys the best in regards to your future, and sincerely hope that Bear gets to know the feeling of sleeping in his own yard someday.
Now, I haven't been around as long as some others on here. I've only been a member for about 2 years now, but that's still long enough IMO to become a part of the tight community that we have here. We all don't always see eye to eye, and sometimes we might downright disagree. But I firmly believe that we'll always work around our differences and are always respectful. That is one of the things I love most about this place, the fact that we have SO MANY people, all with different backgrounds, and we are all friends because of one thing, the love of our giant breed
dogs, and the love for BPO. I truly cherish the friends I've made here, people I come to on a regular basis for advice, or just to chat. Some of you I've met in person, some are the greatest friends I've never met, some of you I probably never will meet, but am no less grateful to know you. I am thankful to Micheal and Jaimie for bringing us all together in the first place, and I hope that we can all still stay such a close knit community, whether it's through BPO or elsewhere.
Now that being said, I too am saddened by all of this. I would also like to know how this all came about? What is it that attracted you to BPO Nipa? Why did you think that buying BPO would be a good idea? Being that you do not have any dogs, let alone dogs that require the extra care and love that our giant breeds do, what is your background? What sense does it make to you to purchase this site? I know that none of this is my business, and I really have no rights as a member, let alone one who hasn't been here from the beginning; but how can you expect a good relationship without complete honesty from the very start? But what about the Mods, if anyone has the right to know of impending change this big, it's certainly the people you employ to keep things running here.
I am willing to have an open mind and an open heart here, as are others I'm sure, but we need to know what your intentions really are.
And Micheal and Jaimie, sorry to make this so long, but I felt I had to say this as well. If you were seriously considering selling BPO, I know that there are people here, who know and love this site who would've made it work. I know you didn't have to, but shame on you for not asking your friends first.
Modified because I have so many questions...
