On iVillage’s message boards, you’ll see a lot of abbreviations.  Some of the most common are:

  • LOL – laughing out loud
  • DH – darling, dear husband
  • DS – darling, dear son
  • DD – darling, dear daughter
  • ROFL – rolling on the floor laughing
  • LMBO – laughing my butt off
  • OMG – oh my gosh
  • BTW – by the way
  • KWIM – know what I mean?
  • GMTA – great minds think alike

You may see some others.  If you wonder what they mean, just ask or click here:


Our message boards have folders.  These folders are like message boards within the message board.  You will see that there are five folders on our board.  They are:

  • Questions About Hounds – This folder is where we post specific questions or advice and ask for or post advice.  Also, this is a great folder to pass along any dog tips you might have too!
  • General Hound Discussions – This is where you can post any general dog question that does not fit into any of the other folders.  If you are new to the board, please introduce yourself as well.

  • Health, Training & Updates – This folder is for any dog health related question and updates on how your dogs are doing.  Also, training tips and questions are welcome here too.
  • Howling Good Fun – Let's get silly!  You will find jokes, funny dog stories and games in this folder.  Have fun!
  • Off-Topic Chit Chat – Post anything you like here that is not dog related.  Birthdays, anniversaries, update on the kids.  Anything you like.
  • Explore iVillage – This folder lists news from around Pets & iVillage and invitations to visit other message boards.  Take a moment and read the newsletters as you will see some very interesting links to other places at iVillage.
