(Newser) – Dog owners are using a crossbreed of MySpace and YouTube to network—all on behalf and because of their four-legged friends, the AP reports. Since launching last month, has attracted more than 700 users, mostly female, who share photos, videos, advice, and stories, as well as supply their pups' "voice."

"My dog sits near the computer while I do the work for him," said one user, whose Maltese has 125 friends on the site. Like its predecessors, Doggyspace is also used on the job. "We're all working in the office all day long," its founder acknowledged. "This is a way for us to bring our pets with us." The site's developer expects 2 million users by year's end.
