  1. Yes this is what I was told too as well as have no opportunity to buy in bulk. I've got some meds (some expensive skin meds IIRC) from the Chemist but had to pay over $100 a script as that was the non-PBS price.
  2. I bought a child's three wheeler stroller on Gumtree for my old Mac when he got too old to get to the park. Perse found it for me and it was a Phil and Ted's Three Wheeler in red - of course! I paid $50 and it was brilliant and much more manouvreable and sturdy than the pet ones. Highly recommend.
  3. I'm so sorry to hear this LMO. It's so devastating when the oldies go. We're all thinking of you and sending much love.
  4. Yep agreed. Iadore my cruisey smoochy boys - but she's adamant that it has to be a black girl. She'll be waiting a long time I think.
  5. Thanks B - but she's absolutely adamant that she wants a black girl... sigh...
  6. I'm going to be the old pupper out here - my old Mac was on Propalin for a while - but man did he become aggressive. And the moment I took him off it the aggression disappeared. I then switched to belly bands with pads and Mac was a happier old man until the day he crossed the bridge. So personally I'd use Propalin carefully and watch them like a hawk - and yes I do think pads and belly bands are much better options.
  7. Happy Christmas Jules and thank you for the heart-warming photos!
  8. Update: The Victorian poodle didn't come off - which is a shame as it looked like an excellent match - but as expected the breeder had no trouble finding a Victorian buyer. I think I've convinced my neighbour to wait until more dogs come onto the re-home market; when more people return to work and the novelty of their impulse buy wears off when they realise managing pups and full-time work is much harder than they imagined. Fingers crossed the right dog for my neighbours our will come along when the time is right. Thanks for your help everyone - appreciated.
  9. There's a beautiful 3 year old toy poodle that has popped up on DOL today. With my neighbours permission, I have whipped off a response even though we aren't in Victoria, as my neighbours are genuinely such a good home. So all fingers and paws are crossed here and hope they will consider my neighbours.
  10. Thanks very much JRG - will get to it tomorrow.
  11. Where should it be reported to JRG? (I'm in SA). If someone can help out with some links I'll report.
  12. Hi all, Just an update on the poodle search which just got a bit more difficult as I'm now trying to convince my elderly neighbour to wait for a while until this price madness abates - at least a little - and hopefully toy poodles become a little easier to source. While its simply crazy at the moment, I think I'm seeing some slowing down and 'bloating' of the market? There are just soooo many crossbreed litters and puppies around at the moment its unbelievable. And the sad thing is I'm seeing so many obvious crossbreeds being advertised as purebreds: C
  13. Hi All, My delightful neighbours, a retired couple have just lost their beautiful but elderly toy poodle. So there is a vacancy for a girl adult toy or miniature poodle at a beaut home in the Adelaide Hills. Prefer to take a poodle who needs a home. Have noticed that the Poodle rescue in Queensland is closed during the pandemic. Apart from gender and toy or miniature they aren't fussed. References available. Happy to pay rescue fee and transport. No rush, let me know if anyone knows of a poodle who needs a good home. Thanks, Westi
  14. GAP grey - now hear me out, The elderly parents of an old friend of mine were after a small rescue dog - no luck. I suggested a GAP greyhound and after their laughter subsided, they did their research and discovered what a great breed greyhounds are for elderly folk (lounge lizards and not trip hazards among other things). They fostered to adopt and now have three greys in the family.
  15. Jimmy this is where I beg to differ. I'm a neuro Speech Pathologist in a previous life and I promise you - I do know what I'm talking about. I actually had a discussion with the Emergency Vets after Mac's crisis about 'why the hell don't you people use videofluroscopy to differentially diagnose what is a life threatening condition'? They couldn't give me a good answer. In my case, Mac suddenly went absolutely critical literally overnight - he was suffocating from a blocked airway and I almost lost him. Not to mention how distressing this condition is for our pups in the lead up, not to men
