Shirelle Asks: So what do you think of my site?

Shirelle Asks: So what do you think of my site?

I’m really proud of this website. I’ve been working on it for months and months, helped immeasurably by two very special friends. My old dear pal Rob Spielman, of Soapbox Graphics, has served as a trusted and creative consultant. And the wonderful Sherice Jacob of iElectrify has been the architect and contractor of this edifice (that’s all big words to say she built the site). She’s a lovely and terrific person, even if she does share her home with two disgusting cats!

We’ve done everything we could to make clear, fun, and easy to use. Now what we need are your thoughts: What do you like about it, and what could stand some improvement? We’re already working on changing some things, but the more we know, the better it’ll get. So our ears are up, and we’re sitting at attention, eager to hear anything you have to tell us!

How sweet! What a great way to ask questions.

Wow, Shirelle – I feel better just knowing you’re out there! I can almost feel your chin on my lap and your soft ears.

So here’s my problem: I’ve got this silly dog that wants to play constantly. How do I get my work done?

Loved it!! Clever, user friendly, and I love the fact that you come to advice giving with unconditional positive regard! That’s why we all should own a dog, they do it best!!
Congratulations and best of luck!!

Shirelle, you’re the very bestest dog ever. I love your sight and hope to ask many probing questions regarding my life over the next years.

PS. Can I ask you questions about Katie and HoneyBean, or is doggie advice off limits?

This is awesome. Shirelle, it’s great to see you! And your advice is sage as ever. Congrats on the launch––really, really great. Yahoo!

shirelle - June 30, 2010 Reply

Wow, thanks for all the compliments! But don’t be afraid to write in if you’re having problems with the site; I promise I won’t take them personally!

Marie, I’ll save your question for a later post! Look for it!

Hey, Shirelle! I know I’m very slow on the up-take, but I had a hard time on the registration page. Everything seemed to be on the wrong line on my screen. Maybe it’s just me?!?

Go Shirelle, GO! Kids like me and their parents will really benefit from you being online and there to help! Thanks!

Sweet! I see a cartoon series and films. Do you have a share button on here? I would like to follow Shirelle on Twitter and Facebook.

Amanda - July 2, 2010 Reply

We can think of questions and questions to ask Shirelle. The way she talks about manners and discipline is great, and about the Handsome, who always has respected her. I think that these are just the first questionss for her. I am sure you’ll think of many more.

CJ - July 2, 2010 Reply

I cant belive how this turned out congrats and I will ask all of my questions here that im confused about.

Robman - July 3, 2010 Reply

I think your site is awesome Shirelle. You should be very proud of yourself for what you have accomplished. It truly is amazing. I am so excited for you as you start your adventure of helping children and parents alike with their difficult issues. I think you are providing a wonderful service for families as a whole. Keep up the great work!

Yip, Yip, Arhoooo! Your site (and insight) is great, Shirelle. I look forward to sharing this with my kiddos.
Send my regards to Hansome!

Candy Girl - July 3, 2010 Reply

This is terrific! So adorable and practical all at the same time. This is an ingenious way for kids and parents to ask questions in a safe environment. Here’s hoping it helps hundreds of families.

Love the artwork, too…Shirelle could work for Disney!

JD - July 3, 2010 Reply

Gosh, Shirelle, you have been a very busy dog! And you are proving that you are just as smart, clever and caring, as I always thought you were. This seems like a terrific endeavor you have undertaken, although it would appear to occupy much of your play time. I, too, see expansion possibilities for your “yard.”

Ron W - July 3, 2010 Reply

Absolutely beautiful. I am so happy a site FINALLY exists to help kids in a positive and (for the parents) easy to navigate way.

mona-lisa - July 3, 2010 Reply

I think it is a wonderful and creative way to reach kid and their parent dealing with some issue that may be difficult to talk about. This is a playful way of communicate with children. It is done with humour and spark of love for children, parents and their beloved animals………………..Fun.

pilatesgirl - July 4, 2010 Reply

I love this website. It’s gorgeous, fun, practical and useful.
Nice job.
What a terrific way to give Shirelle “eternal life”

PurpleHaze - July 4, 2010 Reply

Shirelle!!! I got my picture of you today! I printed it immediately and have hung on my fridge to remind me that I’ve always got a friend I can turn to.

Thank you!

Emily - July 6, 2010 Reply

Hi, Shirelle,
So glad to hear about your website. I know I will learn a lot from you! (Give that master of yours a big, wet kiss from me.)

Rufus - July 19, 2010 Reply

I think you’re really cute Shirelle and one smart dog, you will help a lot of kids and their parents with your solutions. There’s a few movie sequels I think Shirelle would roll over and beg for: Shirelle Come Home….The Shirelle Queen…The Adventures of Shirelle…

A heartfelt Bow wow to you and your master!

Shirelle - August 4, 2010 Reply

Mallory123 - August 17, 2011 Reply

Wow, my mum and dad just got divorced and Shirelle helped me a lot – she told me that even though they are spliting up it does not mean they love me less, they have just fallen out of love wiith each other but they can never fall of love with me. I hope that others can benefit like i did. I am definitely telling my friends

lots of licks and tail waggles

thank you

coolwolf55 - February 19, 2012 Reply

Hey shirelle
It’s me coolwolf55 I have always been a huge wolf fan but some thing on this website just does not make me happy I think you should change to a wolf and change name to stardust I do like your name now but stardust is better. I have a husky named Sheba and am ten years old and yes I do like the web but just a little bit missing for me.

    Shirelle - February 19, 2012 Reply

    Yes, there are lots of days when I’d love to turn into a wolf! That’d show those chatty squirrels a thing or two! And while I would never want to change my name, I love the name Stardust! Do you know the song by that name coolwolf55? It’s a beautiful old love song, one of my favorites! Thanks!!

It’s a nice and interesting idea, I mean that its like talking to a dog. Who/what gave you that idea?? Awesome site!

    Shirelle - April 17, 2012 Reply

    Thanks! But I don’t understand your question… Who gave me the idea of you talking to a dog? Hey you’re the one talking to the dog, cool.josh! I’m just minding my own business talking to humans like you!!! Cheers!

princess - April 29, 2012 Reply

i think that this site should allow you to log on with your face book account

    Shirelle - April 30, 2012 Reply

    That’d be cool, but then people would be able to trace you from it. And I’m ALL about safety and confidentiality here, so I can’t do that. Sorry!

Sazuna45 - May 29, 2012 Reply

Shirelle….your website, is the best website for giving advice to young people and to parents.
I’ve told about this website to many people and they said they’d join too! I love you for understanding that people seriously NEED advice. There are somethings I couldn’t tell anyone but I told you 🙂 You are like the best friend ever! 🙂
Sincerely, nah, with lots of love,
Sazuna45 <3

    Shirelle - May 29, 2012 Reply

    WOW! Thanks Sazuna45! That is exactly what I (and every dog) want to hear!

Lbgo from Ukraine - October 19, 2012 Reply

I like it! There is love in the answers and conversations, and it works a miracle, at least it’s made me smile and even cry a little because we, people, will always have problems, but not always have love to sparkle our day or strength to sparkle someone’s day with love…

    Shirelle - October 21, 2012 Reply

    Wow thanks Lbgo! What kind words!!

    I answer questions as soon as I can, and try to do it within a few days at worst (though sometimes I fall behind).

    Welcome to the Pack!
