  7. Daisy's Story

    I don't spend much time on DOL these days, and many of you probably don't know me, maybe you're not all that interested, but this is the story of Daisy, the little dog that my user name comes from. Many many years ago Daisy was my dog, bought from Parklea Markets (before I knew any better!) as the cutest little pup. She was a much adored member of our family. Sadly, as often happens, our family split apart, and after my divorce, I needed to live in an apartment for a while, so Daisy lived with my ex. He said he would look after her on one condition, that I never asked for her back. I don't think he ever really wanted her, although she was looked after. At one time, I did think about asking him if I could have her back, but I had another beautiful girl dog by then, and as both girls were dominant females, it didn't seem as if these two would be good together Eventually my ex re-married, and all was well, until they got another younger dog. This dog and Daisy got along well most of the time, but sometimes fought. I was rather perturbed to discover that when my ex and his wife split up, she had taken both the dogs. I guess he really didn't want Daisy at all. I did know she was being well cared for though with his ex, probably spoilt more than she had been for a long time. However, last week I was contacted by the lady, and told that Daisy and the other younger dog were fighting more often and with much more serious consequences, and she was very concerned about Daisy's safety, and could I help out. So here is my lovely little Daisy dog, home again after many many years. My daughter and I are both ecstatic to have our little cuddly girl here, and as long as she gets on with most of the other dogs she will be staying. She is an old girl now and mostly an inside dog, so we should be able to manage her with the others. And yes she only has one eye, lost the other one because of a cancer under her eyelid a few years ago. But we still think she is the cutest little girl :)

  9. Daisy's Story

    Well I took Miss Daisy off to the vet this morning to check out a swollen teat that seemed to have ballooned at an alarming rate... and she has a mammary tumour. I will be booking her in for surgery in the next week or two, so well wishes for her would be appreciated. I was thinking about her and reckon she would be about 12 years old now, although she doesn't look it at all!
  10. Awww puppies are boodiful :) <3
  11. Daisy's Story

    When I discovered that Daisy had gone to live with this lady after their divorce, I contacted her and told her that if she ever needed any help with Daisy to let me know. I always wondered if she would contact me, and now I am so pleased that she did :)

    We are so very pleased to have her here, and hope to give her a very happy home for her twilight years :)
  15. The whippet was not safe, I called the pound this afternoon and nobody had put their name on her! So she will be coming to me.
  16. Is anyone available to do a home check in Killarney Heights, preferably sometime this weekend, for my foster greyhound boy please. Happy to chat to you beforehand with some guidance in what to look for/ask etc Either reply here or you can email me at [email protected] Thanks! :)
  17. Thanks shmoo and dogmad, butvthe lady has just called to tell me that they have adopted a greyhound from another rescue group.
  18. It's a long way for you to go shmoo! Let's see if anyone closer can help out, anyone?
  19. bumping again, can anyone help please?
  20. Thank you for the offer dogmad, the people are very keen so I might wait and see if anyone else offers, if not I will let you know :)
  21. Not really. Some are very hard to part with, but I find I am more upset before they leave, once they are gone I am ok. I have had a few that have gone to homes that just didn't quite feel right, for no really good reason, but as Andrea has said they usually come back. There are only one or two that I have worried about, that went to homes where I felt a little uncomfortable and I never heard anything from the adopters again - I still worry about those dogs But, again like Andrea, I now always listen to my gut instinct, and if things just don't feel quite right we wait for another home to come along. A case in point is my current foster greyhound BB, I love this boy dearly, when he first came here I am positive he had never been in a house before and had never been shown any kind of affection (not abused, he was in good condition and not frightened of people, I think he had been fed and exercised etc, just never shown any love ). He has been here since January and it has been wonderful to see him blossom, we discovered he has a playful side, and he is now a Velcro dog - he always wants to be near you and LOVES pats and cuddles. He has had a few enquiries but nothing panned out, and I have been thinking lately how much I will miss him when he finds a home. If I didn't already have four dogs he would definitely be a foster failure. But just today I have been talking to a lovely lady in Sydney, she seems so nice and this time it feels right :) They still have to meet BB yet, but my gut feeling is that these people are lovely, and while I will be sad to say goodbye, if he does go to this home I will be happy at the same time. I am sure that all rescuers know that sad/happy feeling when a beloved foster finds a great new home.
  22. Cane Corso

    My brothers family recently lost their beloved rotty cross to cancer He has just emailed to ask what I know about Cane Corsos, as it seems my sister-in-law is interested in getting one, as she wants a big tough looking dog for security because they live on a small property (which is why they had a rotty cross, however he was a big softie with a beautiful temperament). The dog would be a family pet though, not a guard dog. The dog would live in a semi-rural area on 5 acres with stock fencing only. They have another dog, a female Dane cross a few years old. They also have cats, cows, and chooks, and two children, one in primary school and one in high school. My brother has had dogs all his life, but up until now they have not done any formal training with their dogs. Any information about the breed, and whether they would be suitable, would be appreciated. Thanks :)
