    I’ve never had pet insurance. I’ve had a few big expenses over the years but I am certain I’m still better off with out it. I wish I could do the same with my house and contents insurance. With all the money I’ve paid them I’m sure if something happened now, if I’d banked that money instead of giving it to insurance companies I’d have enough to cover a rebuild.
  2. What is the youngest you have seen a male mate

    I’ve heard of a 4 month old male tying with a mature bitch but it didn’t result in puppies. Phew! Not sure if it’s because he wasn’t fertile or because it was just too early in her season.
  3. Literal frozen puppy, 18000 yrs old

    Unseasonal cold snap? We have them now so I’m sure they occurred back then too. I was snowed in for 3 days in the High Country at the height of summer. It happens.
  4. Aliya Taylor shows off Bahir, an Azawakh

    There’s a few in Australia. Some compete in lure coursing as well as in the show ring.

    Yep, one took the leap this morning.

    my living sculpture. This is Widget’s granddaughter Secret.
  8. Not Dogs, but Falcons

    She’s fledged! 8.51 this morning.
  9. Not Dogs, but Falcons

    Yes one has definitely left the nest. Not sure where it is or how it’s going. The other one is very close to being fully fledged. Maybe tomorrow.

    One of those eggs is from last year and the other from this year.

    Earlier in the week I saw Willow and her puppies. They are doing well too. I can only post one pic at a time, and heavily cropped so they’re not sharp. Sorry about that. Florence and Mia.

    She’s such a pretty little thing. A girl version of Arkey. She’s definitely taken after her daddy.

    Marcus brought Pangi up yesterday. She is Arkey’s daughter from his first mating with Oranja (from Germany). She’s looking really good. I got funny shot of her pelting around my paddock. She’s never been to the country before so this was all new and very exciting for her. That’s Puck in the background. He just had his 15th birthday on Wednesday.

    The puppies eyes opened on Mon/Tuesday I’m told but I haven’t been down to see them. Waaah! Both have IG experienced homes already lined up, with the new owners being friends of each other so the puppies will have play dates together which is good. Can’t wait to see the little tackers again soon.

    Those beautiful hands belong to Marcus. I keep telling him he should be a hand model.

    So, we have 2 new additions to the Widget family. Widget’s son Arkey became a father for the 2nd time last Monday. 2 teeny tiny little girlies of a most unusual colour. It will probably end up some shade of fawn, I really don’t know. Willow the mother is quite small but it was a textbook whelping and all 3 are doing well. The puppies have almost doubled their birthweight in just 5 days. They’re the tiniest puppies I’ve ever seen. 152gms and 148gms at birth.
  19. When you put cooked food into your freezer LABEL IT! Especially if you’re freezing dog food cook ups and people food stews. I had a most unpleasant experience this evening, but luckily ....... I didn’t swallow.

    This is Arkey and his beautiful daughter Adelaide. She’s just yesterday come to live with Marcus. Hopefully in a showring near you soon.

    Thanks on her behalf. I usually feed them about 4pm but I gave them an early dinner, and quite a bit more than usual. Neko always loves her tucker and wagged her tail the whole time she was eating. I wish I’d taken a video of her. I don’t spoil them much, my dogs don’t get food treats as a matter of course so it’s fun to let them have a feast for a special occasion.

    How time flies. It’s 6 years today since Widget had her puppies. The 3 surviving puppies Milton, born in my car on the way to the vets, then Neko in the surgery while I dashed out to grab Marcus’s wallet, so I missed it and lastly Arkey. Neko went on to have a litter of 3 who went onto pet homes, Secret being one, lives with me, Crickett went to “Queensland Nanna” and Obi is hopefully going to be used at stud lives with a friend at the beach. Arkey has sired one litter himself who are all looking beautiful and will be shown, and he’s got another litter due later this month! fingers crossed all goes well. so tonight in celebration of Neko’s birthday it’s roast dinner day. Since Puck is allergic to chicken they’re having roast pork and veggies. I might even get some too if I’m lucky. Thankyou Widget, Tango and Marcus for giving me such a wonderful gift of a life and Happy Birthday my darling little girl.
