    Cavies, Chihuahua's, Cattle dogs, horses.

    I learned the art of improving with every generation with show Cavies. Created the first true breeding pure black Cavies (guinea pigs) in Australia. The same with my Long coat Cavies.
    The first time Cavies were exhibited at Sydney Royal. ..
    They won both Supreme Champion sashes on offer the supreme smooth coat was a black all ASAL blood, Exhibited by Percy Short. Defeating even the English imports.
    The yound lady whose name i have unfortunately forgotten, exhibited her long coat and much to her delight, defeated the English imports as well.. The day I began to understand (imp) does not automatically imply “best”.

    My dogs I hope will continue to give as much pleasure and joy as mine have me.

    My horses have won both in Australia and overseas.

  1. Help with breeds please

    sumpy might have Aussie terrier in him but his legs are double the lengh of any aussie I know, be interesting to know what else is in him. great little dogs, neighbour used to breed them. pretty much might fit what they are looking for though, nice size etc, sometimes one of hers will follow their nose, but much more laid back than the "everready bunny" jack russel's I know. http://ankc.org.au/Breed/Detail/37 spotted this one is dogzonline listed breeders https://www.dogzonline.com.au/breeds/breeders/australian-terrier.asp
  2. RSPCA in the news

    Interesting, explains a lot. spotted on faceplant. The SHG is in the UK but we get calls for help from around the world. We can not advise outside of England and Wales other than to tell people what we would suggest in this jurisdiction and refer them to those who might be able to help wherever they are. We run a mailing list for those in Australia, purely for information and for people to talk to each other. Seems to have mainly moved onto Facebook now. It is important to watch what is happening in other jurisdictions because the AR people push where they see a weakness and if they make a legislative gain they will use it to try and get others to take it up too. The people involved move from group to group and country to country. One of the most prolific RSPCA people in Australia moved there from the RSPCA in the UK. And took her prosecute everything attitude along with her. So it is important to know your enemy Sorry if I misunderstood the original post. Sadly there have been many claims along those lines, generally put out by those who would like to see us shut down. We have to jump on them quickly because once they go viral the damage is done. Fair enough C H ?
  3. North Chihuahuas

    a few years back, australia had its own scammer. received a phone call to warn me someone was using photos of my puppies? By the owner of one of the puppies, hence they knew soon as they saw it online that person was not the breeder. so called the police and advised them and website address they were on. turned out it was a lady in Melbourne, believe she was arrested and charged but not before she had fleeced people of thousands.
  4. Article on vet shortage

    A number of my friends are vets and it is a tough life. my daughter had intended to become a vet but after doing work experience and the number of perfectly healthy dogs and cats whose owners would bring them in to the euthed for no better reason than, going on holidays, dont want it anymore, too much trouble, sheds too much, costs too much to groom etc and many refused the offer to have them re-homed, must put them down she was appalled, the staff said it is common especially at the beginning of the holidays. so many dont listen to the aftercare and what should have recovered dies because they forgot to give it its medication and so it goes.... I remember when we took my brothers mare with a awful gashed hock and when we took her back for a check up some weeks later, Dave Hutchins was stunned... he couldn't believe how well it was healing. he said the one they were treating for a far less damaging wound died because the owners didn't keep up its dressings as we had.
  5. RSPCA in the news

    well looks like the heat is heading for the right kitchen. so far no mention of the other so famous footage of the cattle being beaten to death and what shut down the cattle shipment's. Last I heard it was going to court after it was discovered the ear tags of the "alledged" cattle being filmed... Turned out the ear tags belonged to cattle that came from Australia BUT they had been slaughtered the WEEK before, the submitted video was filmed, in an Australian approved and equipped by Australia at our cost by the MLA. So far not a peep about who is going to be sued for the tens millions lost by so many affected by it (significant percentage lost their homes and livelihood)............From that instant shut down, from that was finally found to have been a faked video.... Did it go ahead or is it in progress? There is nothing to be found on the subject now. by doing nothing about that one, just emboldens them obviously. anyway latest press release. https://www.queenslandcountrylife.com.au/story/5857621/animals-australia-under-siege/?cs=4707&fbclid=IwAR37obhnxhnZBQXcsqvEup-2KrqYRZcUFWQLxusXw4A5_6RijHft5ME9ojo the faked cattle video gets a slight mention in this one https://www.queenslandcountrylife.com.au/story/5856640/live-ex-producers-demand-answers-on-staged-footage-claims/?cs=4707 Personally I think the live export trade should never have been allowed.
  6. very hard, been in the same situation with two much loved dogs. the first had, had distemper as a pup and the brain damage worsened (that was in the late 50's, fortunately just about extinct these days. The other suddenly began attacking even family members in late age, trip to the vet found he was in significant pain and hence suddenly so short tempered and in both cases the vet said they were suffering and should be put down... so this could be a possibility as I think you already suspect. so sorry for you, it is the hard side of having our much loved pets as age, accident or infirmity, catches up with them

    gee, this is appalling! even though AR have been caught out doing this before, just not on this scale https://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/foreign-affairs/live-export-workers-offer-to-distress-sheep/news-story/a10f8b047f379b6b449de5b728b9d3b0?fbclid=IwAR3BBrP_0vFHgci_Hud_a-0JCwYiSP7CjaOr4u3CdxDNUtL2FzHKg2oI_ZE
  8. North Chihuahuas

    Yes, no such thing as a teacup chihuahua. and no such thing as a merle chihuahua. no way they are purebreds registered with any ankc registry.. the contract is reasonable. but on the about us page it says chihuahua's are "non-shedders, and hypoallergenic. " you have to be kidding! All chihuahua's drop coat. http://ankc.org.au/Breed/Detail/20
  9. Neighbours treating Puppy Badly

  10. A dog has killed a woman in Canberra ....

    particularly interesting article. especially the "there's something called trigger stacking." It is now only beginning to be recognised as a possible cause in horses as well. Found some .. had never heard of it before. https://equimed.com/health-centers/behavior/articles/my-horse-is-acting-out-is-he-stressed http://felicitygeorge.blogspot.com/2014/01/trigger-stacking-and-horses-is-your.html Still rarely recognised problem for people .

    this video I think belongs here really even though it is from a slaughter that took place in 2007.... still happens as the owners of the murray greys discovered, as did a friend in Victoria who came home from shopping to their stud fresien's to find all but the last three dead, then shot in front of them, they were dairy cattle, but also stud and show winners and their descendants. including Melbourne Royal champion winner. https://www.theland.com.au/story/5326636/dairy-strength-in-jersey-reckons-sydney-royal-judge/?fbclid=IwAR3EJqjyMB32U_pe2ruLVeRo-WfB2VynJxi57eAGeGYSlRXlEDD_TwkFx0U Compare the Sydney royal Champion for 2018 above and I think you will agree, she too would have been shot by this idiot... doesn't know a dairy cow from a beef breed same as the killer of the stud Friesian's in Victoria.. https://www.holstein.com.au/static/uploads/files/holstein-j-2017-6-for-web-wfqyrhfmgtue.pdf o my gosh everything in this article on champions would get the bullet at Ruths, particularly those on page 26 and 27 but doubt many if any, would be spared by Ashton... those jutting tail vertebrae would have spelt the end for Fairvale Reg Josie 34th....ditto for Fairvale AJ Nola 28th's cavernous ribs and hips...........page 27... Page 26........... Fairvale Gold Chip Butter 291st, 2 yr old Champion, sold for $9500 it says?

    I will, gee have you seen this? disgusting, one flea hatch when the humid weather kicks in and if its happened before the next flea application and your instant fine, revenue raising at its best. https://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/home/pets/rspca-wants-power-to-issue-fines/news-story/3bb47fa63bc6cf13db5d0fe97f8791f3?fbclid=IwAR1ptzzl3JvWqD6xHMgX9Ybrfmavraf2DtlauBMlhoIuQGFJ_Sqa7utVpVM received another link today 10/1/2019 overseas but interesting. https://www.thestar.com/opinion/star-columnists/2019/01/08/court-ruling-means-ontario-must-find-a-new-way-to-enforce-animal-cruelty-laws.html?fbclid=IwAR2UnRmuQkMQoR0L1eFHP3n9TwS7c9fw51QVxbgugkSEGaeJ_jdhFNfOKRg
  13. always remember the story of the family dog who bit their child. after the vet put it down and was picking up the body, something jabbed his arm, he found a broken off pencil in the poor dogs ear

    Had the same crash too but missed hitting the tree, overfat bareback shettie decided to take off n dump me at the gallop, gravel rash from hairline, cheek , shoulder to toes. put me off shetties for a long time. the good thing about Jody was he never dumped you until you asked him to stop, then he sure did stop....DEAD.. with his head between his legs and a little hop to make sure you went down the suddenly provided slippery dip... no flying off the shoulder to crash, just a nice slide down the slippery slope, and he would look ever so innocent. the last time he tried it on me even his bridle came off with me. I had definitely felt the hop sending me over the last inch of wither and realised I had been set up and hit the roof, yelling at him in fury at all the times I had come off thinking it was my fault. got up and hit him on the chest and told him "do that again and I will murder you". think he got the message and sort of looked startled and stepped back, thats when I noticed he had no bridle and it was at my feet. then he backed up a bit further and started to trot across the road to get away from the furious human and I realised with horror he was heading for busy Marion Road.... so quickly changed my voice tone to the happy one I use when I'm calling him to come in from being lunged.... the silly idiot looked pretty confused..... looking back at me, then suddenly decided ... gee shes forgiven me... goodies,,, cant miss my goodies and swung round to came expectantly back to me. so had to slap on a grin and give him cuddles and scratchies for being a good boy and not running in front of a car or truck... that's the day I learned its not what you are thinking they read, its your tone of voice. next time he tried stopping dead ... I growled, walk on or else your dog meat and guess who walked on? never dropped me again. taught him walk, trot, n canter on the lunge on saying the word, so even if someone else was riding him I could tell him what gait to do and they had no control over what he was doing :-)
