In other less happy news, I'm so relieved that there's finally some attentionscrutiny. This was the Today Tonight segment about Australian Working Dog Rescue. Low quality version unfortunately.

This is what happened to poor Jane's son five year old son Matthew:

The dogs I fostered when I was with this group were wonderful and I made some great friends, but I had to leave because I was appalled (and continue to be appalled) at the way this organisation behaves. It makes it hard for all rescues and rescue dogs ...

Depends on the Kelpie. Jerry was not good with cats, but this is former foster True these days :)

Another former foster living with a cat. This is Baxter :)

Usually we engage a friend who's a trainer to help us integrate a foster into a cat home, but they didn't have a cat when we adopted him out, the cat came later - but clearly it's all fine.

Collage of our previous foster dogs (since 2012) in their new lives :) As you know from this thread, we're still in touch with all of the adopters although some are more prolific than others :laugh:

Aww that's gorgeous :-)

Wish we had contact details of Scrappi's foster carer and the lady who looked after Monty the day we adopted him at the adoption day.

oh wow KTB! What a lovely calendar of dogs! You are an inspiration, one day I hope to foster and help as many.

You have reminded me to give our foster carer an update :)

Gosh it's been ages since I updated.  Dyson has been having a wonderful time with his family who take him everywhere.
