I am a dog lover, and share my home with four rescued terrier crosses ranging from 4 years old to 17 years. I am actively involved in the sport of dog agility. You can see some of my efforts on my youtube.com page.
I just stumbled across the Dog Trust’s photo-sharing community, DoggySnaps.com. The site is wonderfully designed with an impressive attention to detail.
The site has just won the social category in the Yahoo Finds of the Year competition, reflecting the best of user generated content on the web. Doggysnaps is the first UK-based website dedicated to dog lovers where they can build profiles for their canine companions, swap dog related tips, photos, stories and ideas.
The judging panel were impressed by the design of the site and especially enjoyed the 'Dog of the Week' section. They also liked the fact the site is run by a charity - Dogs Trust. The trust cares for over 14,000 stray and abandoned dogs a year.
Steve Bridger on his nfp2.0 blog has an interesting article discussing the design of the website.
Time to post my four mutts up!
