Q & A with our "Top Dog"
I have been working in the office on Fridays sitting
next to Monika. I have seen - and heard - first
hand - and gotten to understand a bit more, the
conversations, the frustrations, the heavy work load
and responsibility she carries. It's a big job and not
always a popular one. I managed to corner her one
afternoon recently and threw her a few "curve ball
questions". Here is what Monika had to say........
J: Do you ever take a holiday Monika?
M: Many years ago when I worked in the corporate
arena, my job involved a lot of travel and it was paid
for. I did many things in my earlier years that many
people never get the opportunity to do. I feel now, I
have been there ...done that. I don't feel the desire
to take time off. I love my work with the dogs and if I
went away I feel I would never catch up. I have a big

medication, dogs that rely on me. I just wouldn't
enjoy myself, I would worry too much.

Meet My Special Little Boy,
PADDY By Wendy McCathie, a proud Mum
“ His fear of being Paddy has been with me just over two years. He was a scared and very timid
touched or picked-up 12.5 year old boy when he first came home with me. As well as being deaf,
was strong... ” he also had limited eyesight, which resulted in him being fearful. Paddy did
not show any affection, nor like being touched. I had never had a dog like this

also a rescue dog. They Parks and big open spaces would completely overwhelm him. It then
are best mates. seemed obvious to me this little guy had spent his previous life mostly
indoors, which is pretty sad.
So, from there I would start walking him, short distances at first while letting
him explore and sniff for as long as he wanted. I wanted the power of the
sniff to over-ride his fear and it started working. Then I took him to bushland,
parks and beaches. He started to enjoy himself and soon looked at me when
I was overtime for his nightly walk. He still is a bit hesitant walking to places
but walking home he has his head high and struts alongside me with the
happiest of faces. I also noticed Paddy didn't know how to play so I started
having little games with him. His fear of being touched or picked-up was
strong and as he is so vulnerable due to his limited sound & sight it was very
important he allowed me to pick him up without fear. Again, I started slowly
so he could get used to it and I would touch or pick him up when he was in a
happy state so he could associate it with a good feeling.
We now have little games now and one is a
running game - if I have been out for a few
hours he is so excited when I get home he
lets out a high pitched yap that sounds like
hello, hello, hello and he loves it when I
scoop him up in my arms and give him
kisses on his head, we then run outside
together and along a short bush path and
back around. He also loves walking to the
letterbox with me and he always stays with
me. If he loses sight of me, which doesn't
take much and happens quite a bit, he will
stand and wait until I tap him and then he's
back on track.
Now, if I'm watching TV he jumps up to sit next to me for a cuddle and then
dozes off. He has two cat sisters that look out for him as well. He loves
rubbing his belly along the ground and does it everywhere even on the
beach. Paddy has the most beautiful double coat but it makes him hot easily
especially with his age and in the heat so he also loves going to the doggy
parlour for a haircut as it makes him feel so much better!

first met and he is really enjoying his life

The best thing I’ve done in a very long time was to adopt
Bruce in early May. I planned/got approval for/ had my
heart set on getting 2 old dogs (so they could keep each

needs the one on one attention to get over the stuff his
history has left him with. Big thanks to Monika at Doggie

Put your hand up if you have ever pulled your dog’s tail or his ears?
Have you ever taken his ball away or his biscuit? Do you jump on
his back and ride him like a horse? Or wake him up suddenly when
he is sleeping? Have you crept up behind him and scared him?
CHIPPY’S RULE: If you have a dog you should always respect him.
Never do anything to your pet that you would not like done to you!
Remember that and your dog will always be your best friend! Chips

Hello Readers, More details on
Athena page 23
I went with my Aunt Katrina out to Doggie
Rescue to hopefully meet and walk Athena
(my Aunt had walked her once before so we
knew we needed to wear trainers with really
good grip :-)) and we loved hanging out with
her - after a walk, we found a top spot to sit
and cuddle for a bit - she's a smoocher and
lap sitter! On the road a few passing
dogs barked at Athena but she didn't
bark back - not once! She’s such a
good natured girl. Nella

DID YOU KNOW DOGS ARE TEACHERS? Dogs teach children many things. Firstly they teach RESPONSIBILITY.
They also teach COMPASSION. Dogs teach children PATIENCE. Kids also learn about SOCIALIZATION from dogs.
Last but not least, dogs teach children how to have FUN. What are you waiting for? Adopt a dog today….

• ADOPTION UPDATE WHERE IS SWEET CHLOE NOW? Written by Kerry Watts
Consider Adopting an Older Dog –
it can be a very rewarding joy.
When we adopted Chloe in December 2017 she was
in poor shape. She was timid, could only walk a little
and was on a host of medication. Once we took her
home she settled well but was very shy and nervous.
In time she grew in confidence and is now quite happy
to express herself by giving little barks when she is
ready to come inside and pacing excitedly when it’s
dinnertime. She now enjoys lap time cuddles.
Chloe’s health improved with the care of our holistic
vet, good nutrition and supplements. With the help of
acupuncture her walking improved. As you can see,
she enjoys exploring the dog park. She was also able
to have her medications reduced.
“ It has taken time and effort but the rewards It has taken time and effort but the rewards of seeing a
of seeing a happy confident old lady enjoying her happy confident old lady enjoying her days is
definitely worth it. She is a darling and gives pleasure
days is definitely worth it.” Kerry to many adults and children that she meets on her
walks in the park.
Meelah (aka Cleo) has been with me
now for 8 wonderful years. I just love her
to pieces. Nine months ago I bought a
campervan to get out and about and
have some Van ventures knowing that
she would be able to come along too. I
am lucky enough to be able to work from
my van at times so we head out most
days find a lovely spot to work or study.
I thought I’d share a photo of Meelah
taking the van life all in her stride…She
loves it, especially staying over night
because she gets to snuggle in. We are
planning to hit the road for a BIG
adventure this year..Few months or more
while she is still young enough to enjoy it
and I'm flexible enough to get in and out
with doing a hip.lol thank you Monika
Meelah is such a gift . Nikki
