    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. Yes, many people think their dog is a "registered purebred" when they show you their council microchip lifetime registration papers. Lots of confused people out there
  2. This one is so right, but don't think many are listening or even care unfortunately ANIMAL RIGHTS CHARITIES HAVE ACHIEVED NOTHING! Animal rights charities such as animals Australia, Animal Liberation, voiceless etc, DO NOT provide any animal care what-so-ever! they're effectively wasting donations on an idealistic crusade to force others onto vegan diet, and to end all human- animal interactions/activities including pet ownership, and especially animal sports,consumption and products. If all of that money went towards groups that provide actual animal welfare, including rehabilitation, shelter, food, and rehoming, just as the law states that they must do to hold charity status... then all animals would be better off, and if these animal rights lobbyists stopped clogging up our politicians emails, and wasting MP's time with their propaganda, then, perhaps we would have less human problems in society. Animals don't belong in human politics. Animals don't need rights, they need great animal husbandry, and well-balanced regulative bodies if they are within an industry. They need well managed conservation programs if they are in the wild, and with proper protection if required. They need laws enforced if cruelty occurs, not calls for a ban of anything of that nature! We have laws in place, police at the ready, USE THEM, not your damn keyboards!" the only thing lacking is advice how to get to "USE THEM" to get the police to act? UNREAL, wonder if the Victorian Inquiry know this little gem? This says it all!! Saving Pets 17 February · If you ever comment on RSPCA shelters and charity pounds having high kill rates, the first response you'll likely get back is; "... yeah, but they don't ONLY do animal impoundment - they ALSO do animal cruelty legislation..." So let's look at that, shall we? Australia has a human population of more than 23 million. Despite our pretty small population, we gift the national RSPCA more than $141 million dollars a year. We have also gifted them nearly $240m in cash and assets. For our generous investment we get... drumroll... 104 inspectors. You read that right. 104 physical inspectors nationally. Servicing 23 million people. The average inspector's wage is $55k for a operational inspector, up to $85k for a senior inspector. Making the annual cost to hire inspectors nationally, between $5.2m and $8.8m. Or between 3% and 7% of the national RSPCA revenue. There is only two explanations for the discrepancy between the outgoing spend on inspectors vs revenue; - Either Australian's are actually pretty gosh-darn compassionate with very low rates of animal welfare transgressions; at which point the RSPCA needs much, much less money than we're giving them, OR - The RSPCA is desperately underfunding its inspectorate, meaning they're not doing the job we're paying them to do. But whatever the reason, we need to be asking, where is the rest of the money we're gifting them going, if not into safe shelters or well-resourced inspectorates? Watch it, their idea of a well resourced inspectorate is inspectors running around with guns, not even the police carry guns. Only 11 inspectors in w.a four more have quit, obviously saw the writing on the wall.
  3. I think what the author wrote is particularly special because we all know it but so beautifully explained, so hard to console those who wonder why they buy a puppy knowing the heartbreak that will come because their lives are just too short.
  4. so many truths to this story. and why those who have their pets taken are so traumatised too. quad-triple the distress when there was nothing wrong yet it was still taken. no sense in putting a new post, no one is listening anyway. although the day its there turn they will be far from happy to discover you dont have to be guilty to be rolled by this lot. so just posting this link for my own information so can find it again if I want too. And the lady who lost her old girl because she had long toenails.
  5. Interesting link I was just sent. re AR who now run the RSPCA
  6. How many know this? I didnt. 23 March at 11:27 · RSPCA RAIDS, Know your rights. I will use a recent example and attach a video of the raid, and let you all know what should have happened, what did happen, and all the breaches of the law by the RSPCA. 1. Firstly and most importantly, the owner filmed and asked questions. Please make sure all of you do the same. 2. The RSPCA broke and entered through a back fence, to seize the dogs in the hope the owner would not know. 3. To brake and enter, the RSPCA “must” believe the animals are in urgent need, in this case as you can see that was not the case, so they had no right to break in, they needed to serve a warrant. 4. The inspector was asked his name, before that the owner asked who they were, the inspector “Must” show his ID (not all inspectors have the same powers, some have reduced powers) this will be on the ID, same applies to anyone with them, they must identify themselves when asked. 5. The inspectors says he is seizing the animals, well if that is the case, he must issue a seizure notice before he does and specify why the animals are being taken. 6. The inspector was not happy with the conditions of the area the animals were kept, yet they had feed, shelter and water on site, this is not an offence. 7. The inspector ought to have issued a warning or an animal welfare notice, say a notice demanding he gets vet checks or cleans up. 8. After seizure the inspector emailed the owner saying he will not be getting his dogs back, not this is not true, that is a decision for the courts. 9. When an animal is seized, at law it is held by the RSPCA on behalf of the minister, so any cost issues are between the minister and the RSPCA. 10. The inspector in that same email, said after 10 days they will be claiming costs for keeping the animals, in this case $20 boarding per day for the 5 dogs, plus vet bills and added costs, which is $700 per week. 11. Interesting the dogs were seized on the 10th of march, so the inspector in his email said they were seized on the 1st of march, so he could start asking for costs from day one, not legal. 12. The same email states “If the owner signs the animals over to the RSPCA, they will not order costs for keeping the animals” this is extortion from my point of view, and I doubt the power exists to use this action. 13. The owner at this stage has not admitted guilty of any kind and has not been charged, and a court has definitely not adjudicated. 14. My advice to the owner (not legal advice) was to write to the RSPCA and demand the weights of the animals and organise an independent vet check. To demand the return of his animals and to seek legal advice. 15. The best lesson here is that the owner asked questions and recorded what happened. What I thought should have happened, or what I would have done if I had the same powers as the inspector; I would attend the property, take photo evidence, knock on the door and introduce myself. I would ask to see the animals, offer advice and judge the reaction, if I was not happy, I would have issued an animal welfare notice to clean up the area, maybe an order to get the animals vet checked, but the dogs did appear to be in good condition. I would have returned and checked if the orders were complied with in 5 to 7 days, and in this case I know the area was cleaned up. The man had a good reason, not that the RSPCA asked him any questions, as he had been unwell, and had a friend feed his animals, hence the mess. I will pop back here and update you on where this case goes. The Animal welfare act is not a huge document to study and sections 28 through to around 35 from memory is easy reading and covers these issues.
  7. even more interesting re the 86 who bred more than ten litters, they and the 539 who had from 5 to 10 are the ones who tend to be targeted for shutdown as puppy farmers.
  8. Decided maybe this needs copy and past in case he does let it lapse. what happened to this poor man should not be allowed to be forgotten. I doubt the investigation in Vic will know of this or consider it since it happened in SA. but the problems are Australia wide. After learning that a representative of Dogs VIC made the comment that they had over 10,000 members and asked why are we being dictated to and not given equal if not greater input into state laws, instead of the government giving preference to the RSPCA VIC with less than 1,000 members. did a little googling. interesting figures can be easily found on the ankc websites. zilch to be found giving RSPCA membership figures, if the figure stated by the Dogs Vic is an indicator VERY FEW people are bothering to join RSPCA yet they are being given minority rule status by our politicians? why? even more interesting, this mans dogs were taken not because they were neglected, or needed food or water, but their yards were messy with numerous holes and shredded bedding. " 1 Empty Harness, 1 Empty Heart added 18 new photos. 23 March at 13:35 · On the 10th of March 2017 @ approx 9.30 am, I returned to my home to find People standing in my dog runs, on no less than 6 occasions 5 caught on film, I asked for Identification (which was answered initially with RSPCA, "I'm here to seize your Dogs") after Revoking his Authority & hence in my opinion (His right of Entry, as he came through a double layered fence Iron & Mesh, which required his unscrewing & Cutting to do so). Despite revoking his authority (I had yet not Sighted ID) he was trespassing. I asked a further 3 times (after giving my Name, including Spelling my Surname on his First ask) I finally got Peter Muir (Peiter Mur) as I later found out. (He had not been so courteous as to offer up correct Spelling). As things became tense & I had ushered him back to the Hole in the fence, he signalled for Police attendance, which I insisted he do. Meanwhile whilst awaiting Police attendance, he rounded up my dogs & continued videoing EVIDENCE? Remember at that stage he was Trespassing & had committed Break & Enter to do so, he had left his Authority when he failed to Produce Valid ID. "Simply stating his name is Not what the Act says" see Sec 29, part 3, Animal Welfare Act 1985 SA. In the Action Plenty -v- Dillon, 1991 See High Court Decision, Mr Peiter Mur, RSPCA of SA Inspectorate acted similarly & had his authority / implied right of entry Revoked, He Had not identified himself as required under the act he was relying on. I assert that All testimonial, Photographic, witness & Video evidence was Illegally obtained & inadmissible in a court of law. Mr Mur, wrote to me on the 21st of March & asserted his Right to Extort $700 a week from me in Boarding fees? One of the Dogs Seized was / is a PTSD Therapy Dog. (maremma) as were the other 4. I have had a Running issue with our local council over the Numerous Vehicles and other items on the Property, also Councils actions related to Fire Prevention & Maintenance of a Creek which runs through my Property. Council were Present at the Seizure, despite it being an RSPCA operation. 1 Empty Harness, 1 Empty Heart There is not a Prescribed offence under the act for simply having a dirty yard. The solution / Resolution called for on the day was Improvement Notice. Like · Reply · 24 March at 23:32 1 Empty Harness, 1 Empty Heart Since the Seizure, much remedial work has been completed, the runs will be fully ready by the weekend, it remains to be determined how long my Dogs will be kept. ILLEGALLY · 24 March at 23:34 Sounds like you got gang banged by the man hope you get your dogs back · 25 March at 08:42 1 Empty Harness, 1 Empty Heart They used Vicks Vaporub not KY · 25 March at 08:46 1 Empty Harness, 1 Empty Heart · 25 March at 08:49 Quick look you live rural yes lots of cars big deal dogs look healthy friendly yard could use a clean not terrible though i would say you have a enemy with friends in council good luck · 25 March at 09:06 1 Empty Harness, 1 Empty Heart I have an Enemy within council & have had for the past 17 years. Council are Not Constitutional · 25 March at 10:21 1 Empty Harness, 1 Empty Heart I was supplying the MFS in Port Pirie with Crash Simulation vehicles for their Recruits, then each need to do 6 or 7? Different extraction Cuts / Methods to become Accredited, so as you can only get a few cuts from one car, they need a supply of cars. 1 Empty Harness, 1 Empty Heart Taken at rear of Fire Station · 25 March at 11:08 Omg i hope you get this sorted . .

It may be frail – its roof may shake – the wind may blow through it – a storm may enter – the rain may enter – but the King of England cannot enter – all his force dares not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement.” · 28 March at 09:23 I guess this page is all but Redundant as my dog(s) have now been returned. I will leave it up for awhile as there may be a few developments, legal action pending. Taking it up with the Equal Opportunity Commission good idea. all should be doing it, wonder if the ankc's have a facebook page? Write a reply... keep it up, we need far more people to speak up about what a monster these people are and what they represent. read recently in Victoria that RSPCA VIC had less than 1000 members yet our stupid politicians allow this rouge organisation to dictate law reform and do not give equal to greater input from Dogs Vic who has over 10,000 members? a rabid AR group is being given priority over the massive majority who actually have the animals.. what ever happened to democracy, now its minority rule? even worse a minority who a significant percentage believe no one should have animals be interesting to know how many members they actually have per branch Australia wide? These are the figures for all registered dog breeders state by state. ..... thanks to the massive pressure mounted against traceable breeders on the charges by RSPCA that they need to be policed out of existence because they are filling their pounds with unwanted dogs, notice how much membership has fallen. Yet they breed only 71,361 puppies in 2016 , to supposedly oversupply Australia population with dogs. get real... no wonder its hard to find a registered purebred puppy to buy... .....Population of Australia (2017 and historical) Year Population Yearly % Change 2016 24,309,330 1.42 % 2015 23,968,973 1.58 % 2010 22,162,863 1.8 % 2005 20,274,282 1.19 % interesting, no figures available for RSPCA membership, neither state or Australia wide? In 2013 a survey by Galaxy Research for the Animal Health Alliance Publication “Pet Ownership in Australia Summary” estimated that the dog population was 4.2 million. What is the Dog Population of Australia ? In 2010 research by BIS Shrapnel for the Australian Companion Animal Council Publication “The Contribution of the Pet Care Industry to the Australian Economy” estimated that the dog population was 3.6 million. In 2016 a Report by Newgate Research on behalf of Animal Medicines Australia , “Pet Ownership Australia in 2016” * estimated that the dog population was 4.8 million. *This report outlines key findings from a quantitative study of Australian households and the state of pet ownership in 2016. It also draws on information from other sources locally and internationally to provide a comprehensive view of changes in pet ownership in Australia since 2013. Lets do the Math ! Estimated Australian Dog Population 4.8 million A conservative estimate is that due to mortality 10% need to be replaced annually which indicates a demand for 480,000 puppies per year In 2016 ANKC Ltd Breeders registered 71,361 puppies, so to achieve the estimated number required, approximately 408,639 were bred by people outside the ANKC who have no accountability for health or welfare .

  9. I remember in Spain cremello horses or was it Palomino's? were called Isabella's because they were Queen Issabella's favorite colour
  10. if you had said you wanted a girl then the fact she only had two girls would be why you were told only 2 available. also if you wanted a certain type or markings the breeder would only count the ones that fitted what you were looking for, I know if someone wants a puppy of particular sex, markings or colour then that's the only ones I send photos of, waste of time sending info and photos of one that isnt what they want anyway, although do tend to say how many and what would suit their description and what doesnt
  11. gee that is a well behaved dog, those plastic bottles would be totaled by the end of they day as instant chew toys by mine
  12. Yes its only pet owners that are allowed to be pilloried as guilty until or unless PROVEN innocent, no place for innocent until proven otherwise or a grain of doubt, the vilification is sickening and incredibly distressing for those being slandered, and wonder who taught Jo public that eh? Just the sight of a well known brand on a vehicle outside or inside your gate and your reputation is gone.
  13. might have saved me an awkward oops, sold one pup, kept one and guess who has just discovered when he got his next vaccination, I gave the wrong paperwork for the pup I sold?????? Now to catch up with them and get it all switched, have my own scanner still having a headache trying to figure it out how could have goofed? the two chips have only one digit difference didn't help
  14. i am lousy at maths but that to me means an average of 6 litters a year. considering the vict govenment was trying to pass law restricting anyone from having no more than ten dogs, that would still equate with 10 litters in one year. so if a hobby breeder was going to be allowed ten litters, then they sure hav'nt made the puppy farmer list. yet then if they can produce 50 litters in 5 years? At present that limit has not made it into law in fact the inquiry into what the minister for agriculture was trying to push through was scapped because what she was affectivly going to create was anyone even with one female would be classified as a puppy farmer as she wanted everyone to have an abn and register as a business.
