Up until Angel died I wouldn't give Facebook a chance. I wanted nothing to do with it and couldn't care less about it. I had no desire to ever go to that place.
When Angel was just missing, the first thing readers said was that nasty word Facebook. When flyers were out circulating on the infamous FB and people I never knew or ever will know were reading about our dear sweet Angel and hoping for her safe return, there was a lot of power swirling in the hopes of finding her. In desperation my husband signed up for what seemed to be our only hope to save Angel.
And honestly in the end FB and all of you did help find her. Even if it wasn't the results we were all hoping for. When I told Angel's parents about the flyers that were out and about on FB, we got together pictures and made paper ones for around town. The person who accidentally hit Angel on that foggy morning saw them, called and Angel's body was found. The four of us, Angel's parents and my husband and I were able to have a proper burial and have all important closure.
Maybe FB isn't as bad as I once thought.
And now as we venture into a new and foreign land of FB, I am asking for your help again for those of you already there. The 24 Paws of Love has their own page and we are asking you to like us. Since we are just getting started and trying to navigate our way around, our page is a little bare bones, but if you could spare a minute, we will return the favor back.
We don't know how to thank all of you for your help in finding Angel, sad as it was that she was dead, at least her body could be laid to rest so that she could run with all of her friends, here and around the world. Thank you for being a part of that.

We use Facebook as a great (and quick) way to connect with all the dog friends we've made through the blog. It's a great way to share photos, health and safety info, and the little odds and ends that don't end up in the blog. Mom stopped by and liked your page this morning.
We use Facebook and would be happy to add you in...make sure you join the dogs with blogs Facebook group too
Hey 24 POL, Jet here.
OMD, so, so, sorry to read of Angel's crossing in such a tragic way. As you said, at least there was closure.
Mom won't let me FB yet because she just can't handle one more thing... she uses FB personally and professionally though and appreciates the good parts!
I have a facebook page for Pip, but I never use it. I do use it for myself, but for Pip I like blogging. I will definitely check out your page!
I will check it out...facebook does have it's positives.
My Mom's on FB and she just 'friended' you! She has to read me your posts, but we'll be looking forward to them there and here too!
Mom: I've been behind (again), but I know how much Angel's death has affected you. I can't tell you how sorry I am that you had to find her like you did. It's hard enough to lose one of our furry friends when they've lived a full life, but to have one die like Angel did is really, really hard.
I liked you earlier today! I use our fan page to make us a little more interactive, and we do have a lot of friends who read the blog from Facebook and comment there, so it's been worthwhile for us to cultivate it.
I have facebook but I'm not really on it and I'm not that good at it. But I will like your page! :)
