    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.

  2. Mike Sturgeon 2hcaft3 AuSpollgnausuioresrtad · PUBlIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT It was on Fox news earlier that 70 dogs have died as a result of eating chicken jerky treats made from chicken that has come from China. Kingdom Pets brand from Costco is one of them. Also certain Blue Buffalo brand pet foods have a recall for the same thing. Please re post and make sure all your doggie friends are aware of this.

Mysia Zagłada FCI 16 tSeputfeSmphmgbenionsrs 20l1rrogeorauedSln9 · (on photo it is play, not agression) "The art of training a dog owner. Dog owner tells me: Hi, my dog pulls on the leash and runs into the woods after deer if I let it off leash. Me: Okay. What's the breed? Owner: A siberian husky mixed with a coon hound. Me: Okay, so you have a musher mixed with a hunting type of dog? Owner: yes. Me: ok, what are these breeds bred to do? Owner: well, half of the dog should be pulling and the other half run into the woods and hunt. Me: Yes. And your problem was? Owner: it pulls on the leash and runs after wildlife. Me: yea, it appears that you have a dog meant for pulling and hunting. Owner: yes, that's correct. Can you train it out of the dog? Me: Do you have any interests? Owner: Eh, yea sure I do. I like to paint and watch movies. Me: can you consider quitting doing that? Owner: no, I don't think I can. But what does this have to do with dog training? Me: would you consider doing something else that gives you the same pleasure you get from painting and watching movies? Owner: I mean, sure I can do other things but it's not as fun. Me: ok. And what can you offer a musher that is more fun than pulling and a hunting dog that is more fun than hunting? The dog owner is silent for a while. Owner: That's a good question. I don't know. Me: neither do I. Owner: perhaps I should had gotten myself a PlayStation? Me: haha, yea if you dont like hunting or being a lot outdoors training perhaps this dog isn't for you. Owner: yea, one should perhaps read up more before getting a dog. But it's awfully cute! Me: yes, I understand that. Owner : it sheds a lot too. My husband goes crazy of all the fur everywhere. Me: mmm, that's something you have to deal with. Owner : yes, it was even hairs in the stew last night. Me: yea that's not uncommon. Owner : but you know what? I met a husky when I was 12. It was so beautiful. Ever since I've always wanted one. Me: too bad you didn't meet a PlayStation instead. Owner laughs: alright, I think I'm starting to understand that it's not the dog that has problems but me. Me: haha, not much of a "problem". What you are saying is very common. People with guarding dogs gets angry when their dog growls at strangers. People with sighthounds gets frustrated when their dog comes home with a baby rabbit. People often know too little when they get a dog. Owner : thanks for the chat. I have learned a lot in 10 minutes. Me: good luck in the future. There's a lot we can do to help you in your training with the dog. But The dog will always have a need and joy to pull and hunt. Owner: yes, I can understand that now." Author unknown.
  4. my aunt bred them for decades and I cant remember her having anything but white with the occasional black eyepatch or to eye patches
  5. Is it any wonder.......

    Gee even cattledogs are going up A nice red $3000
  6. RSPCA in the news

    well that darned investigation into the rspca sure did nothing positive so far
  7. some 20 years ago I received a phone call from a lady to say her puppies photo was being used in a puppy for sale add. I had bred the puppy and when she sent me the site address all the photos were of puppies I had bred? it was a person in victoria and I reported it to the police. apparently she had scammed thousands from people before they caught her so its not a new thing
  8. RSPCA in the news

    sadly another person made the mistake of thinking RSPCA Yagoona is safe to use as a vet surgery. Took their cat for a "check up" made the fatal mistake of telling how they acquired her. I hope she goes to the press. They are not a vet surgery, NEVER take your pet there if you hope to see it again. Apparently happened this week. 16/9/20 Cheyenne Speed 1d For the past month I had been feeding this beautiful pregnant mum and kittens from our local gym. I then captured them all to try and get them rehomed to have a better life. I have been able to home the kittens(they were 5 months old)! And the pregnant mum had a home too! We took the pregnant cat who was about 1-2 weeks away from giving birth in to RSPCA Australia RSPCA NSW FOR A CHECK UP (they have Vet services at the location taken) We specifically told you we will take her back and look after her. She was just going in for a check up, you said you would keep her overnight just for observation (due to give birth in a week so wanted to check she was healthy and prepared for birth ) We were on the way to pick her up but you called and said you’ll keep her for a couple extra days to monitor her, we said that’s fine let us know when we can come collect her before she gives birth so she isn’t stressed. We didn’t get that call, we contacted you a few times to get updates because you hadn’t called but couldn’t get through and today you told us you EUTHANIZED HER AND HER KITTENS. I am absolutely heartbroken, I feel so incredibly guilty and I have been sitting on my floor in tears. I captured them for a better a life, we would have given this to her, BUT YOU TOOK THIS AWAY FROM HER AND US!! We ONLY took her to you for a check up, because you preach love and care for animals, we thought she would be safe. My whole dance studio was invested in these beautiful cats, they donated food and money to help these kittens and pregnant cat. I went there daily, sometimes twice a day to feed them. Your excuse you told us over the phone... she wouldn’t be domesticated. That wasn’t your call to make, WE TOLD YOU WE WOULD TAKE HER BACK, you were just supposed to do the check up. We need answers and you need to be held accountable. This post won’t bring her back but maybe it will highlight what you do behind the scenes. Don’t preach love and care for animals and decide to kill a cat and her kittens that were due to be born in a week when she had a home. I know we can’t save them all, but she was saved. I am so sorry to everyone and most of all sorry for this beautiful cat that never got the chance to have a forever home and be given the love she deserved.
  9. Breeders terms

    I expect there is a thread on it. but cant seem to spot one. I have a bitch a friend wants to lease and put to the male of his choice. what can I ask for or expect in return? totally new territory for me
  10. Labradoodle study

    hilarious, if they dont want shedding coat they had to keep reintroducing the poodle or end up with shedding coats heard that some are advertising pure bred poodles as oodles
  11. Is it any wonder.......

    well being precious, ethical and responsible has done wonders for the prices of unregistered dogs?
  12. Is it any wonder.......

    ditto for these, also on Trading Post, farm bred not ANKC https://www.tradingpost.com.au/Pets-And-Horses/Dogs/Cattle-Pups/Windsor/NSW/AdNumber=T575VJ
  13. Is it any wonder.......

    Hope you are sitting down. none ot these are ANKC breeder puppies
  14. Help please!

    so true Dogsfevr, that fit to fly certificate can only be issued by a vet who obviously did not spot the heart murmur I had not advertised a litter for cant remember when, yet I am getting three to five people a day wanting me to put them on a waiting list, past clients and people who have friends who passed my name so that breeder having a long, long, long waiting list is probably spot on
  15. The future of ANKC breeds

    LOL the lab nearly went nuts. they reran it expanding the markers, then reran a third time expanding even further the samples had been sent to sire verify a foal that was supposed to be by the aethon son. but I knew he is a dominate grey and the foal was chestnut and was not going to go grey. otherwise it would never have been discovered. the only marker different was the Aethon son had two grey genes and the Razaz son only one grey gene. which incidently I already knew anyway. Razaz is chestnut so it was impossible for his son to have two grey markers. so the DNA profile was for the societys satisfaction.. What else it proved was a surprise all round OH! their blood type was identical too. This was done so long ago the grey marker had not been identified as such yet. but the fact they found two similar markers on the Aethon son and only one in the same locus of the Razaz son was the only difference they could find . The chap who found it was shouted dinner.
