    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. fit to fly is exactly that, so some one mucked that up all right as for the puppys vet who vaccinated her giving you the information, the fact that you had her vaccination certificate proved you are now her legal owner, my vet welcomes puppy buyers contacting him for any info regarding their puppy. He files everything he notices about each puppy for me or their future owner.
  2. I remember Rob Zammit showing a cute little maltese x shih tzu and it had every fault both breeds can carry, forget which lifestyle show, it sure wasn't the garden gnomes who put up so much advertising for x breds and encouraged it.... Rob pointed out that x breeding from faulty parents does not give the magic hybrid vigour so many were touting as the reason to get a x bred.... He had left the garden gnomes program unfortunately the message does not seem to have been noted or spread successfully
  3. Think Rebanne is right, you can only report her to the rspca if your puppy was not microchipped or vaccinated, it is law that they must be..... remarkable how many people still dont know that even though its been illegal to sell an unvaccinated or microchipped puppy or kitten for more than twenty years now
  4. be interesting asking the rspca best of luck and would be appreciated if you could keep us up to date, so hope ends well for you.... if it was a worm issue you will see improvement in six weeks
  5. sounds like a cavalier but thats just a guess, needing worming can give rise to a heart murmur that will resolve once wormed, I remember my vet saying once. well I think that was it. come to think of it, if they didnt bother to treat an ear infection, maybe worming wasnt 2 weekly either..... might be an idea to worm your puppy, just in case
  6. The poster should have contacted the breeder from the first vet check, that is appalling. to deliberately send a puppy they know has ear infections. Wishing you all the best in this. No idea what the outcome will be, the courts tend to be a lottery but going to the small claims is good advice the laws are now everyone must have outside kennels and it is illegal to whelp and raise your puppies in your home if they come and inspect you, and that includes the ankc inspector as well... the laws they have made now make everyone a commercial breeder whether you breed one or one hundred... instead so they are eliminating in home raised ( backyard ) breeders, its comply with commercial or else. a friend lives in dorrigo and the council there is even worse, dorrigo has made it that you must have a fully enclosed concrete floored, airconditioned shed for whelping. if you haven't one and the council inspector learns you have puppies, The inspector told her for every puppy pay 1,600 each or surrender. They seize them and take them to the local rescue. As well demand you desex the mother within I think one or two weeks or face fines of again I think it was 1,600...... the same I know the nsw government was going to implement the same laws as Dorrigo, but Dogs NSW managed to get them to redraft, no idea what the redraft contains, if its similar pretty much the end of all but commercial puppy farms in this state. As for the horrific results if a blackout occurred mid summer. locked in those sheds the dorrigo council has passed is the only way allowed, every dog would be dead by the time you got home it you were away from home when it happened .. same result of being locked in a car these laws are certainly not being drafted to take into account our climate and unreliable electricity supply. The politicians certainly have absolutely no idea about managing dogs in the real world and climate of this country
  7. Attack in Melbourne

    it was amazing actually that they did discharge the gun. a friend was riding with a group and a car hit one of the horses and broke two of the horses legs. the police arrived but refused to shoot it. citing they would have to fill our reams if they discharged a firearm. called for a vet to come, but unfortunately the horse began to come out of shock and began fighting to regain its feet and threw everyone who had been holding it down kicking my friend in the head. so then they needed an ambulance to save her life as her skull had been caved in by the kick.
  8. think my lot would think cable ties were their dental floss :-)
  9. Attack in Melbourne

    "RSPCA Victoria's head of operations, Tegan McPherson, said there were a number of reasons why a seemingly healthy dog could suddenly attack. "It can be a range of things such as genetics, its learning experience and training as well as its environment," Ms McPherson told ABC Radio Melbourne. "Fear is generally the underlying emotion associated with aggression in healthy dogs." cannot find my self agreeing with the rspca, but it does explain why SA justified taking the border collies, they were fearful of the strange inspector, they interpreted that as they could attack as a result. Certainly known many dogs that are bred to be guard dogs automatically being aggressive , the one that scared me most was a massive Neapolitan that by 9 months decided his job was to guard the cars parked at our pony club grounds. he would welcome everyone in as they entered and parked, he would come gambolling up wagging his tail and wanting to be patted, typical adorable BIG puppy... no problems then, even when is owner was no where to be seen. BUT try to go back to your car without the caretaker, his owner with you, he would stand guard and begin to bristle if you kept coming and threaten to attack and he wasn't joking or bluffing, after one of the dads decided to ignore the threats and went to open his car door he was attacked... the caretaker decided to have him desexed hoping that may reduce the aggression, have to say everyone was relieved to learn he never woke up from the op... only his owner grieved his loss. Although everyone expressed condolences, we were celebrating in the clubhouse, because he didn't restrict himself to threatening us adults, he was terrifying the children too if the ran anywhere near the carpark. The caretaker did lock him up in her backyard but he discovered he had no trouble clearing the six foot fence once he had decided he had his job to do.
  10. Attack in Melbourne

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-07-11/american-staffordshire-terrier-dog-attack-kills-man-in-melbourne/11298152 https://www.news.com.au/national/victoria/news/man-killed-woman-injured-in-horror-dog-attack-in-melbourne-backyard/news-story/ae54569cd7d3060f9671b8d14a5cd474 Such a tragedy, the poor family. I do wonder why the police bothered to catch the dog instead of shooting it on the spot when still attacking the woman when they arrived? Although hope they do an autopsy to see if it had brain damage or something else to trigger what is being said is abnormal behaviour
  11. the dog world went crackers some 20 years ago, after someone discovered the new in stock "compost bins" for only $19 (that was twenty years ago I think) they are four panels of wire mesh almost identical to the puppy pens the pet shops sell for over $70 . every dog forum was spreading the great news.... there were constant updates which branches still had "puppy pens" in stock and how many left. I still use them. perfect for travelling, I have two and so they can play in a big 8 sided pen when we arrive at vets or show.... mmm the price has gone up but the same thing in a pet shop today is 179 so still a bargain,, i put them together long side down so 1 mtre square pen. the only catch is always use a pair of pliers to crush the ends of the twirly bit after u have it in place or the puppies shaking it they spin down and so it opens like a flower as they spin to the ground.. also I dont put the spinners on all four sides, get two small boat clips for one side and then can fold easily for travelling and or clip to second pen if want bigger run area for puppies, put together low for small puppies or high for bigger puppies if they climb...............https://www.bunnings.com.au/tumbleweed-garden-waste...
  12. O my! surely that first one has to be the winner... beyond priceless, just sums up everything about our dogs doesn't he/she. the good, the adorable, the EEEEEEEK! and no is already too late
  13. This poor man mauled

    incredibly sad, suspect he is lucky to be alive. probably will never recover from the trauma. so unnecessary, nothing the owner could do can be adequate. words fail At lest he did survive and will be back home with his family
  14. What you may ask has this to do with purebred dogs. actually a lot now we live in the age of dead end kennels. less sires available to maintain diversity just for starters it seems.
