Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

RoxanneRookChoosing a Vet

I’ve been asking around, some of my neighbors with pets. I want to pick out a good vet or veterinary clinic in my area before I find a dog and bring it home. I don’t want his (or her) medical care delayed, nor do I want it to be anything but the best.

RoxanneRookShow Dog or Shelter Dog?

Here’s my dilemma: I love all dogs and I love the idea of taking a dog into my home and giving the poor pup a forever home. But I also watch the annual Westminster Kennel Club show the way some people watch the Miss America pageant. Either way, I know I’d be a very loving Dog Mom.

Now we have a place of our own I have been looking at websites and doing some research. We know we want a rescue or shelter dog. We want a pup who needs us as much as we need him. I tend to be home alone at night a lot due to my husbands work schedule so it would be so nice to have a dog with me.

They seem to be a great resource. I want to visit our local city pound but I would literally want to take them all home, it breaks my heart to see all those homeless animals. 2 years ago

iSqueakCrate Training update.

Here’s a quick update on the crate training, since I haven’t posted in three days.
Brody<~my puppy) is adjusting quite well since I got him a more suitable bed instead of just a towel.

He has only pooped in his crate once and that was clearly my fault.

None of the neighbors have complained, I introduced myself to one of the neighbors. Informed her about crate training Brody, she hasn’t heard a thing. I hope that applies to all of my neighbors in the other units.

I’m terrified of my electricity bill, but whatever helps Brody makes me happy.

He does wake me up but I count up to 30 seconds so when he stops barking to let him out. If he starts barking again, I recount and wait till he’s quiet.

I’ve seen him walk into his crate once in awhile, which makes me happy.

I praise him every time I let him out or when he freely walks in.

Thank god for the crate!
He’s a handful, if I take my eyes off him for one minute. He’ll either start biting something, peeing or whatever else he can get into. 2 years ago

iSqueakcrate issues.

The adoption is being finalized this week and i’m so excited!
He’ll be the first puppy I’ve ever owned.
My first male dog. First smaller breed.
He’s a puggle, pug-beagle mixed.
I don’t know what type of crate to get for him, plastic or wire?
I don’t like the idea of him getting warm inside a plastic crate.
But the idea of him getting anxiety by being alone, and could get overwhelming for him to be able to see everything.
My folks are trying to convince me to use the family dog’s old plastic crate. It’s washed, and cleaned but it’s an 8 year old crate that’s a bit scratched up. Ugh. 2 years ago

iSqueakA question

The adoption is being finalized this week, then the puppy will officially be mine :) My question is what's a better crate? plastic or wire? I'll be posting details on my blog about my 'adopt a puppy' goal 2 years ago

iSqueaknervous, scared and excited all at once!

Next week, hopefully Tuesday I’ll be a puppy owner. I’m so excited but I’m almost just as nervous. It’d be the first dog I’ve ever owned. Not my family’s but mine as an individual, 2 years ago
