  1. Luki - Parvo Survivor

    That is so great Rach ! Brilliant news !!!
  2. The Papillon And Phalene Thread

    Hi Everyone, We rescued a really special little disabled girl from Renbury in early January and we are wondering if anyone thinks that she may be a Pap X ? She is less that 4 kg and we estimate that she is maybe 3-4 months old. Markings and colour seem similar to a Border Collie but she is still so tiny and she has really fluffy and upright ears. She is extremely alert (and a real nosey parker) and loves kids and although we have called her Buttons, we still haven't been able to finfd any button on her that says "STOP" as she is always so active playing when she isn't sleeping. I have attached a couple of pics and would appreciate any thoughts or opinions that you may have. Cheers
  3. Webster only had 8 days of being loved after being rescued from the pound. Our little man had Parvo and is now at peace. He is now watching over his sisters that are in the vet as well fighting for their lives. Webster will be sadly missed by us and his adopted dad who called him Ash but never got to take him home. His dad was so excited when he met Webster he brought his parents back the following day to meet their new grandson. Soon aftermeeting his new family, Webster's condition started to change from a happy playful and cheeky little pup to a sick little boy. He spent 5 days on a drip fighting for his life but today it became too much and he just didn't have enough energy left to fight anymore. R.I.P Little Man until we meet again at the bridge ........ you will never be forgotten. Webster your brother and sisters have joined you now so your not alone anymore but don't worry babies your all coming home where you belong and where you were loved. Whinni, Whoopi and Wilco are now at peace with you so please be good untill will meet you all at the bridge and we will cross it all together.
  4. Fantastic post Shmoo !!! GREAT WORK ! Let me just reinforce what you said about jumping in at the last minute ! Emotion plays a huge part in what rescue is all about but we cannot let out hearts rule our heads no matter how guilty you may feel about a last minute plea ! The sad fact is, some dogs will always be PTS and we can't save them all Please, if you are considering wanting to foster care, join a group and be a little considerate giving the group time to organise things for you - this also gives you breathing space to consider the committment that you are making. Foster caring can really be a very rewarding and fulfilling experience but it shouldn't be an impulsive decision to make.
  5. Hydrobath

    Hi ALL, We have had a hot and cold tap installed outside so that we can hydrobath our foster fur kids (mainly puppies). We have found theat when using a garden hose, it is almost impossible to regulate the temperature so I have organised a plumber to fit a tempering valve for me. (the tempering valves mixes hot and cold so that it can't go over a preset temperature). I have spoken to a couple of hydrobath manufacturers and also searched the net but can't really find the correct temperature to use as there are so many conflicting opinions. I was hoping that maybe someone can suggest what temperature the water should be for bathing and rinsing. Thanks for you assistance Regards Paul
  6. Barker

    Kristie, We know there is absolutely nothing that anyone can say or do to ease your pain. We haven't spoken for a while but we can remember how excited and happy you were when you received Barker and we know how much he meant to you both. Even though it may have been a relatively short time that Barker shared his life with you we know that every minute of that time was full of love for all of you and he WILL be waiting for you at the Bridge. Thinking of you. Narelle & Paul RIP you wonderful little man !
