Saddened to hear of the death of Police Dog Waco, his passing serves as a timely reminder to keep a close eye on our dogs during the hot summer months.

Queensland Police Service Facebook page reported that whilst on a job tracking an offender, PD Waco's handler observed him becoming unsteady on his feet, recognising signs of heat stress.  PD Waco was immediately given water and urgently transported to a nearby veterinary surgery.

What a great day it was yesterday for rescue dogs and individuals/families wanting to adopt a rescue dog!  Virgin Australia announced that Virgin Australia Cargo will fly hundreds of pets in need of care across Australia in a bid to break down distance travel barriers with the help of animal welfare charities such as PetRescue.  

Rescue dog Lallee was the first of these jetsetters this week with PetRescue uniting Lallee with her new owners in Sydney.

I'm sure Lallee was welcomed with open arms and will enjoy settling in as a very much loved and permanent member of her new family.

This is great news and a fantastic stance for a big corporation to take in support of pet rescue.

Thank you!

Winter is well and truly here and what a chilly cold snap it is!

If you are like me and have some unwanted blankets and towels stashed away in the linen cupboard, now is the perfect time to donate them to your local RSPCA.  Our friends at the RSPCA do a fantastic job of looking after unwanted dogs and cats, and finding them loving furever homes.  They rely heavily on donations and now is the perfect time to donate warm items.

Before you throw anything out - think about donating it to RSPCA. As long as they have dogs and cats, they have a need for dog and cat products.

There are many other ways you can assist including: getting RSPCA Pet Insurance, sponsoring a ‘Second Chance’ animal, monetary gifts, donating Wish List items, fundraising, getting your business involved, buying raffle tickets, becoming an RSPCA Member and of course, Volunteering your time.

Give RSPCA a call or visit www.rspca.com.au or your state’s RSPCA website.

If you are looking for a puppy, we strongly encourage you to purchase from a registered breeder or to adopt/rescue a pet. Puppies sold via any avenue of sale including Internet, newspaper ads, markets, car-boot sales or pet shops may have been bred in the appalling conditions of a puppy farm - a growing national problem.

A puppy farm is an intensive dog breeding facility that is operated under inadequate conditions that fail to meet the dog’s behavioural, social and/or physiological needs and can be both large-scale commercial operations or smaller volume breeding establishments. All across Australia dogs are being confined to cruel puppy farms (also knows as a puppy factory or puppy mill) and treated as nothing more than breeding machines, used to produce puppies for profit.

Puppy farming is a major animal welfare issue in Australia with the main issues including:

  • Extreme confinement – in some cases breeding animals may never be allowed out of their cage to exercise, play, socialise, have companionship or even to go to the toilet
  • Inadequate veterinary care and general care – grooming and parasite control
  • Unhygienic living conditions
  • Inadequate and overcrowded housing conditions
  • Frequent long-term health and/or behavioural problems in breeding dogs and puppies born in puppy farms as a result of the poor conditions they are bred in and a lack of adequate socialisaiton.

RSPCA Inspectors have rescued dogs from puppy farms where hundreds of breeding females have been kept in cages in appalling conditions. Any type or breed of dog can come from a puppy farm (purebred dogs, crossbreeds, mixed breeds), so you cannot judge whether a dog has been bred in a puppy farm based on the breed or type of dog.

The only way to be sure is to visit the breeding facility and check out the conditions.

We recommend you read the RSPCA Online Puppy Buyer’s Guide and also check out the RSPCA Smart Puppy Buyer’s Guide brochure for more information.  RSPCA Australia is strongly opposed to puppy farming. They advocate regulation of the breeding, supply and sale of companion animals to help set minimum standards and stamp out puppy farms.

Further information on puppy farms and the RSPCA’s recommendations for action to end puppy farming in Australia is provided in documents on their website: End Puppy Farming – The Way Forward and Legislating to End Puppy Farming – The Way Forward.

Each state/territory within Australia has its own controlling body for registered canine activities, promoting responsible dog ownership, as follows:

Tomorrow night will be party time for many, with fireworks lighting up the skies all over the place.  If you are going out to enjoy your night please make sure you have your dog safe and secure in your yard or inside your home to avoid coming home to an empty yard.  The loud bang of the fireworks spook many dogs, whilst some dogs are not bothered in the slightest, but it's best to be prepared!  It might even be worthwhile to ask a neighbour to mind your dog for you if you are unsure of how your dog will react.

If you are anything like me and love a bit of retail therapy for your pug or just flat out love spoiling them, you may find you have an abundance of old dog stuff - dog toys, dog blankets, dog beds, collars, leads and the list goes on....

Instead of throwing these in the garbage bin headed for landfill, consider donating them to your local RSPCA.  The RSPCA does a fantastic job of looking after unwanted dogs and finding them loving forever homes and they rely heavily on donations.  

Before you throw anything out - think about donating it to RSPCA. As long as they have dogs, they have a need for dog products.

There are many other ways you can assist including: getting RSPCA Pet Insurance, sponsoring a ‘Second Chance’ animal, monetary gifts, donating Wish List items, fundraising, getting your business involved, buying raffle tickets, becoming an RSPCA Member and of course, Volunteering your time.

It's that time of year again when we set off on Christmas holidays.  'Yesss!' I hear you say. You've been waiting all year for this break and have your dog sitter arranged and then BOOM! dog sitter is no longer available right at the last minute.  What do you do?

Here are a few options I could think of:

  • Scan the pug groups on Facebook and see if any puglovers would mind caring for yours while away 
  • Scout around friends and family for a last-minute stay-at-home holidayer
  • Ask the breeder you purchased your pet from to see if they offer dog minding
  • Check out the pet motels for prices and availability and hope they have room
  • Ask your neighbours if they would mind some pet-sitting
  • Totally change your holiday plans at the last minute to stay at pet-friendly accommodation
  • CANCEL the holiday and stay at home with your pet because holidays are just as much fun at home with a pug

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all creatures great and small x
