D for Dog began life in June 2004 as a dog photo gallery and shrine. Jenny Prevel took inspiration from her dogs Boycie and Berkeley to grow the site considerably since then to include dog news, events, articles and funnies, plus deaf dog information, a friendly dog forum, and of course an online shop for dog accessories.
Some thoughts from the interview
“It all started about 10 or 11 years ago when we rescued a couple of rescue dogs. In those days you didn’t have your social media, there was no YouTube and Facebook and things like that. I joined an online dog forum and we used to chat about the dogs. It was very basic and there was no way to upload photos which we all wanted to share. So I thought I would a bit of free web space and upload photos for people.”
“One of my dogs is deaf and I had made loads of different signs for him and photographed them so I thought I will upload those as well that is really helpful to people.”
