OK...the dogs have had their day.
I'm not quite sure why the main WebRing page had the collection of mini icons for system run communites in the first place ...most of which are about dog breeds... but its getting a bit old. Time to put more icons like the ones used for "Business", "Art", Health" and "Pets" for the OTHER "communities" on the main page in the "Search our communities" section. Make it more useful for new visitors to use WebRing. Besides, the collection of mini-icons really seems to slow down the page load.
