  1. Here's an update on the staffy and other animals https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-04-30/disabled-dogs-new-homes-after-raid-storybook-farm-brisbane/11056074

  4. Apologies if the following has already been posted - http://www.executivestyle.com.au/a-dogs-life-tula-the-rescue-dog-is-a-better-photographer-than-you-gp54g9 Tula is a pretty talented photographer. Her Instagram account is better than yours, probably. It's definitely better than mine. This all seems fairly impressive to me, because Tula is a dog. The four-year-old rescue dog is the photographer behind Canine Happy Hour, which features pictures of dogs at dog parks, from the perspective of a dog. You can find her on Instagram and on Twitter. Facebook too, naturally. The brains of the operat

  6. My boy Louie gets intermittent head tremors which vary from 30 seconds to two minutes. He responds well to treats - they seem to snap him out of them.
  7. Many thanks for your suggestions and well wishes. I'm sure B will come around - it's just surreal to be out of favour after all these years, particularly when the other two haven't skipped a beat.
  8. I returned home yesterday after almost a month in hospital. Two of my three dogs were excited to see me but the third (B) didn't seem to recognise me. B came from the pound in 2006 aged approx 2 years old and has always had a few quirks, ie she's very wary of strangers and thrives on routine. Mum looked after the dogs at my place while I was away. While she previously didn't visit for a couple of months at a time, B never forgot her. Things haven't improved overnight - while curious, B is still very wary of me. Has anyone experienced something similar?
  9. http://www.bendigoadvertiser.com.au/news/l...rs/2130635.aspx KEEPING pets and their owners together is a specialty of Bendigo Animal Welfare and Community Services, president Debbie Edwards says. A new grant from the Bendigo Uniting Care Outreach Board, Ms Edwards says, will help organisation to reduce the number of pets being surrendered by their owners. “It will help us support our community support programs in providing assistance to disadvantaged pet owners,” she said. “If we can keep people from surrendering their pets by covering the cost of keeping their pets, the better it is. It’s
  10. http://www.agedcareguide.com.au/news.asp?newsid=5473 People nearing the ends of their lives can turn to hospice care for comfort when there is no cure. And now, pet owners can get the same kind of palliative care for their dying companion animals. The American pet hospice service in Greater Cleveland, Rainbow Bridge Pet Hospice, offers in-home care for senior and dying dogs and cats. "Euthanasia used to be the only way to end a pet's suffering," says local veterinarian, Gretchen Kocher. "Today, as with humans, pet hospice provides care, comfort and compassion for cats and dogs when they c

  12. http://www.cnn.com/2010/HEALTH/01/13/cat.d...onality/?hpt=C2 How are dog people and cat people different? By Elizabeth Landau, CNN January 13, 2010 8:59 a.m. EST (CNN) -- Do you rejoice at the sound of barking but cower at a meow? Or do you look at a cat and feel an instant sibling-style connection? With the proliferation of Web sites cultivating photos and videos of animals doing cute things, it's easier than ever to get your daily fix of the pet variety you have, or wish you had. Ever wonder what your preference for cats or dogs says about you? A team of researchers led by psychologist
  13. Thanks redarachnid I think you hit the nail on the head, particularly being winter. While I'm sure they were thorough, it did make me nervous!
  14. I visited my vet this weekend and was overwhelmed by a putrid stench. When I asked the staff if they had just had a parvo case, they advised a dog had been brought in earlier with blood in its faeces and been euthanased. I realise it must be a fairly regular occurrence for a vet surgery but was shocked by the stench even though the place had been disinfected. I'm curious to learn if most vet-grade disinfectants are able to get rid of or mask this smell, as well as what the standard protocol for disease control is in such instances.
