  1. If it was me I'd just call and ask for my pet's medical history to be sent to my new vet. Clear, honest and upfront. Hopefully stops reminder letters being sent unnecessarily (it would cost the clinic time and money to send out reminders too).
  2. Contact details for vets in the places you're going. In an emergency you don't want to be trying to find out where the closest vet might be while worrying about a sick pet (speaking from experience it sucks).
  3. A guy once told me that my cattle dog cross was a nice looking dog. She's an Aussie so I corrected him. Twice more I tried explaining but he wasn't going to believe me. He leaned down near Ivy and said "did your mummy get ripped off???". They was my cue to tell him to have a nice day and walk away. My 17kg whippet gets called a greyhound all the time. My fawn greyhound got called a deer several times by kids which was kind of cute.
  4. My girls Ellie, Maddie and Ivy. They put up with me posing them in different places all the time and taking many, many photos of them :laugh: Dal the giant whippet. His whole life I've had people asking if he's a greyhound but he's not even close to that size :laugh: . He had his leg amputated 18 months ago and while he's a little slower and gets tired quicker than he used to he is still loving life at 13. He's got a completely unique hop because of that missing leg and the sound of him hopping through the house and along the hallway is one of my favourite sounds :D My amazi
  5. I haven't seen that statement of acceptance made by anyone. Things have to change. Things were changing. All I hope is that the opportunity to see if the changes are successful is given. Hence why I didn't quote anyone here. But the numbers have been staggering for a long long time. The numbers are also rubbery. The numbers are ridiculous. I know adoption has been improving every year since I adopted my first in 2003. And I got my pets straight from their trainer so I know the "official" adoption numbers do not reflect every adopted dog in the country. But the number that find h

  7. I find it hard to pick a side. I know a few people in the industry, good people who I know care for their dogs. One who kept their racing dog in the house even when they were told that the dog would do no good on the track (they proved them wrong on that :) ). And some that are heavily involved in greyhound adoption as well. I've been offered dogs at the track and told if I didn't take them right then that they would not be making it back to their kennel that night. This was before I adopted my first grey and I went home devastated and feeling like I had killed that dog myself. I also have m
  8. I did. They're such posers and put up with me asking them to stay in silly places :D .
  9. My current favourite pic of my girls
  10. Another one for Dr Read :) Referred to him with my whippet a few years ago.
  11. Nope, I'm not adding it up. With a 13 year old whippet, an almost 13 year old greyhound with both new and ongoing health issues, a 16 year old terrier with heart problems (and the meds to go with it) plus the 2 Aussies and kelpie it adds up fast. I've spent over $2000 in the last couple of months easily but the actual figure might make me flinch. Best not to know the numbers :laugh:
  12. The screen on mine is perfect, not sure how that didn't break. My sister's Samsung cracks if you look at it funny
  13. I just took them on my phone (HTC M8). I use the editing options with my phone's camera. The unfocused background one is definitely my favourite. Ohhh wow!!! Man that makes me miss HTC, I've got the Sony Xperia z5 compact and my husband has had M8, M9 & M10 haha. My camera's good but it struggles a bit with movement & I can't do action sequences so I can choose the best 'pose'! This one fell off the roof of my car and hit the road at 110km/h and is still going. Some dents and dings but can't fault the camera :)
  14. Happy Birthday Koda :) I just took them on my phone (HTC M8). I use the editing options with my phone's camera. The unfocused background one is definitely my favourite.
