Do You Follow a Breeder, Vet or Daycare on Facebook?

Do Tell: What Should I Do If My Breeder Wants to Be e-BFFs?

While I'm active on Facebook and Twitter for work, I'm far more discerning about the information I share about my personal life. What can I say — GeekSugar has taught me well! A friend recently shared that she was taken aback by the breeder of her dog requesting to be a friend on Facebook and a follower on Twitter since she rarely interacts with the woman anymore.

This got me thinking about the village of people that help in each pet's life. Be it a dog's trainer, walker, vet, or even the human mom to a furry BFF, where (if anywhere) do you draw the friendship line?

It depends how close you are with the breeder. After we adopted Zena, we became very close to Zena's old owners, who are breeders. Both my mom and I are Facebook friends with her because it makes it easier for us to share information about Zena and we love seeing updates and pictures of the new litters when her dogs have them! It's also a faster way of us being able to ask a question about Zena; we may have had her for 3 1/2 years now, but sometimes an odd question will come up. It's nice to just type it on her Facebook page instead of e-mailing her and hoping it gets to her e-mail box (e-mails have gotten lost before)!

I'd feel a little uncomfortable about that. I want to know more about my dog's habits and background, not to see pics of what she's having for dinner!
