    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. Chi eats toes

    He is lucky it was only a chihuahua. anyone else remember one of the first people to get a face transplant was because their dog had eaten their face while they had been unconscious? http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/woman-who-underwent-worlds-first-8779087
  2. Pet dog saves 10-year old girl

    the reason my parents never let me go anywhere without my dads cattle dog Blue at my side, I would be handed a note for the grocer and the money and off down to the shop, people would cross the road if they were comming the other way took me a while to realise blue would smile at them at the 30 foot mark and they crossed the road. my daugher was given Debbie by hilton singclair when she was born and she did exactly the same. never had to worry when to went to play with Debbie at her side. When our eldest son brought home his new baby daughter and he and his wife went for their first walk with her in her pram at 3 days old, Benny and rosie positioned them selves either side of the pram and to Pauls astonishment people would cross the road as they walked towards them, he wondered what was going on so crossed the road and walked ahead and watched benny and rosie. I got a phone call to tell he he had always thought my story about blue had been childhood bullshit, now he knows its not, benny and rosie were doing exactly the same thing... Australias best kept secret, ACD's The best thing that happened to the non pedigree acd was the bogans switched to importing and breeding apb's, they stopped breeding for acd's that bite anyone on sight. probably not politically correct but I think we all know in the wrong hands the results are disaster for both the dog and other people
  3. Just learned tonight this parasite can kill people? My neighbour's husband was an orthopaedic surgeon and he pointed to a beautiful boy and told her, he would die soon. he had been dared to eat a slug. the parasite destroyed his brain. A friend who is a vet, sent me this. "Horses too , Angiostrongylus cantonensis - the rat lungworm. There are oftern small snails in water troughs and they can carry it too, foals and young horses more frequently affected than adults. And Humans I believe. Take home message - no slugs or snails in the diet, at least not uncooked! https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/angiostrongylus/index.html CDC - Angiostrongylus Education and information about Angiostrongyliasis, Angiostrongylus cantonensis, Angiostrongylus costaricensis, eosinophilic gastroenteritis, and eosinophilic meningitis including information on prevention and control, epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, and resources for health professionals."

  4. So Excited 11 purebred cattle puppies will be taking over the set with Chris Brown and Amanda Keller. awesome advertising for purebred puppies eh. A great segment not to be missed as he discusses the dangers of snails and slugs to your dog and how to protect your dog
  5. very true, that is the hard part. very had not to keep wishing, if only someone had come by, if only she had something she could have used as a tournaquate I know for me even when I saw all the blood was suprised and I realised i obviously could be in trouble but by then I didnt care, too sleepy. i know when i was better realised how lucky i was born now and not in the years of only horse and buggy, would have died that day. so the rest of my life has been a gift I would never have had if I had been born in the eara I like better than all the high tech stuff lol even the net, to think my grandparents still had horses and sulkies up until just before I was born, my mums horse won champion Harness horse at sydney royal in 1938 I think is the year on his ribbon? have to go check, my dad was still delivering ice because there were no fridges and here I am talking to you over a system me, my parents and certainly never my grandparents could ever envisige eh?
  6. Yes, so true, so many horse rescues want to "save" everything. and other people not even in rescue put so much pressure on someone who wants to sell a horse they no long want because they are afraid of it, they tell the poor person that they have committed to that horses care for life when they bought it and they "cant just throw it away" when they want to sell it. they are big and potentially deadly if they want to be.
  7. actually bleeding out is quite a peaceful way to go, you just feel cold and increasingly sleepy, I remember being quite annoyed when the doctors kept waking me up all I wanted was to be left alone and sleep, had no idea how much I had been bleeding after a miscarriage, by the time I arrived at the hospital all I wanted to do was sleep. It was only later I learned how close things came to death . felt so peaceful not even the sight of all the blood on the stretcher sheets when they moved me, worried me a jot
  8. this is the very reason I so dislike the trend to always blame the breeder or the owner when a dog goes bad. you really will never know the cause for the majority and that is not the first time a brain tumour or damage is behind it. we had a beautiful border collie who was kicked in the head by a friends horse when he was 9 months old, raced to the vet we thought he was a goner, but the vet rang the next morning to say he had removed a 20 shilling size piece of shattered bone from his skull and he was up and happy this morning, when would we like to pick him up. he had a line of stitches and a slump in his skin where the bone was missing but fine for the next 5 years before things began to change. he began to look intently at people, typical collie stare to control the sheep but a menace was there in his eyes too. He took to jumping the fence and it was 6 foot paling fence and rounding up the people who walked down to the bus stop and holding them in the park beside the bus stop, we would have to catch him and bring him home, at first everyone thought it was funny and so did we but when they ignored him and went to board the bus he began to show his teeth and threaten them. One day I came home in the rain umbrella up and he came over the fence and came at me staring at me like he was mad, it was very scarey, I called his name but he made no hint he heard or recognised me. He plainly wanted me to not move but I took a step forward and he leapt for my face or throat, not sure which and I screamed his name at him and in midair he reacted and twisted sideways to not hit me and ran home very distressed. We took him straight to the vet and he said he had developed I forget what he said it was, scarinng? anyway he kept him overnight and he said he was having a form of fitting where he would recognise the vet one minute and then not recognise anyone and move to attack them, he believe during these sessesions he was in a great deal of pain and he was put down. There is too much of a blame game going on with the people who say no animal becomes bad unless someone is to blame, and people persavere with what could and in that ladys case end up so tragic. no one seems to have mentioned it here , but I was at a lesson day yesterday and two said the reports have come back he bit her on her legs and struck an artery and she bled out. Poor lady.
  9. when i was a child a neighbour was killed by his dog. he had come home in the pouring rain in a new coat and rushed through the side gate in a hurry to get out of the rain. his dog was startled and went straight for the throat. he only bit once as the second he had he realised who he was and let go immediately but problem was he had hit the juglular, is wife saw it but the ambulance arrived too late. just pure bad luck regardless of breed although the bigger the dog the more chance, his dog was a german shepherd. the dog was a devestated as the wife she believed , well that is what she told my mum and she did not have him put down and died of old age some 10 years later n had never bitten anyone else since although perhaps that might be more catagerised as a freak accident? she took and risk and was lucky
  10. Advice on dog breed with limited shedding

    my mum had a standard poodle and she was awesome with kids, so much so se think she saved the life of my friends 3yr old. Tammie LOVED water, we had a pool, yet mum and my friend were having a cup of tea and her son began crying, investigation found he and nipped outside when no one was looking and he was at the bottom of the stairs. tammie was standing beside him, mum thought he was afraid of her so told her to go inside. not long later he began crying again, but still no idea why.although tammy was beside him again. so mum and marilyn decided to watch from a window. soon as he thought they had gone he headed straight for the pool. it was an above ground and mum had removed the stairs. but he had stacked things against the side they had not noticed. he began to climb his makshift ladder and tammie came running, took his arm in her mouth and led him back to the stairs and he began crying. tammie got so many hugs she was thrilled to bits, as for tony he got a talking to and a smack (child abuse was rife in those days) its decades now but we are still amazed tammie didnt just jump in with him but somehow knew he should not go in and saved him from am almost sure drowning as he had not learnt to swim
  11. What colour is this-poodle people

    Blue can manifest in a zillion shades, from darkest blue black to pale and everywhere in between, my vote is hes a dark blue. forgot to add, a blue does not have a black nose, its a different shade, paler than black and unmistakably not black. so? What shade is his nose? my silver boy had a black nose, a chocolate has a brown nose.
  12. Dogs NSW rego V'S Master breeders ?

    Judging by the massive number of breeders who never sell any but limit register puppies they sure seem to fail at producing anything good enough to deem worth of breeding from? or more like what so many suspect, have no intention of letting anyone have a chance of becoming a registered breeder and keep out any chance of competition. NOT exactly passing on the line like the breeder they bought their foundation dog or dogs from. Dead end ANKC breeders are now the proud norm. Although if the lady I met at a sports day is anything to go by, beware the breeder who is happy to sell the puppy on main register, but has already desexed the puppy at 6 weeks. I spotted the stitches and since all had them i commiserated at how unlucky all the litter had needed hernia ops. She blushed and explained no they didn't have hernias, they had been desexed. she was meeting the new owners at the park as it was her childrens sports day and yep , every one was handed their signed main register papers. well none of those puppies could ever become puppy farmed. could they? The new ethical Lucky im getting to old. I liked the old ethical of the 70's, welcome newbies and mentor them so the genes the breeders before you entrusted to you, are passed on to the next new generation.

    have you spotted how many blue and lilac french bulldog puppies are main registered with ANKC's? my neice was given one for her birthday. Fully mains registered.
  14. Urgent help needed please!

    incredibly difficult situation, having been a breeder since 1978 I sure have sold a puppy to a pet home that I later regretted. Although in my case I never reneged on the sale, just hoped one as good would turn up in the next litter. Although in hindsight it rarely does happen. Also tend to console myself with the fact that so many people will see what a stunner it is can come looking for one as nice and they sure have. put it down to the fun and the frustration of being a breeder. Every litter is a new book, as is every puppy. This looks like one breeder who has had second and third thoughts after the event and decided she can't go through with the sale. I can understand why she has done it, but she had first pick in the first place, so pretty unfair to renig now, I don't think she has done the right thing by you. I expect your too upset about all this to even think about taking a second look at the puppy she had intended keeping originally? how cute is he? it could still turn out he could end up the best puppy too, and if you get him end up still having the last laugh...... its sooooo hard to accurately asses puppies under 8 weeks. the story of the ugly duckling has a basis on fact remember.
  15. adorable dogs, unfortunately its the last three words in the standard that fails them in the rspca temperament tests . few will forget the darling dog who was put down because although was a showring champion made the mistake of being "aloof" to the vet who the new owner had taken it too for a checkup and who discovered it had been debarked in another state and led to the breeders dogs being seized and charged with breaking the new Victorian law that no dog owned by a victorian could be shown if debarked in another state. Think the breeder was facing 80 years jail as the sentance was if I recall correctly ten years for each time shown or something like that. Then convinced the new owner it was not safe to keep due to the dogs obvious distrust of the vet who then let the vet put it down. Not sure if it was put down before or after the vet sent the rspca to seize the rest of the breeders dogs, terribly sad day for the breeder and the Tibbies Characteristics: Gay and assertive, highly intelligent, aloof with strangers. rscpa dont tend to read breed standards. its so lovely the tibbies like quite a few other breeds have been lucky to have stayed the same over the decades , so it can happen they don't get morphed in the name of "improved" So it is possible.
