On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog

It has been a couple of months since Taffy became a part of our family.  I created a post when we first got her and included her email address.

She hasn’t used that email yet (she’s still a pup and can barely read).  But no one on the Internet seems to have figured that out.  So far she has received more than 100 unsolicited email messages (about three a day).  Most of the messages are typical spam: pharmaceuticals, money making opportunities, Christmas gift ideas, etc.  She even has one from someone offering several million dollars if she can help transfer some money from Africa to the US.  I don’t think she is going to be able to help because another message says she is having problems with her bank account.

The old adage still holds true.  On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.  Especially if you have an email address.

At any rate, Taffy says “Merry Christmas!” to all of you.

    Sounds a lot like a poster I made a few weeks ago. Nobody knows you’re a dog, until you open your account on Dogster!

  2. The other dogs don’t really care what type of a dog you (or the dog) are. They are hoping that you are dog enough to chase the bone they throw at you.
    Good point. If you could get your dog to eat all that spam for you..then you set. When do you think she’s ready?
