The number of 56 billion does not even include
those animals who live in water, or those who are
killed for other reasons, such as for clothing,
experimentation or “sport”. In the US alone 10
billion land animals are killed for food every year; far
more than the entire current human population. In
Australia it is believed to be around 500 million.
Further, “at this rate of killing, the number of deaths
is greater in five days than the deaths we’ve
inflicted on humans in all wars and all genocides in
recorded human history (approximately 619
million)”. Therefore, take the time to talk to all the
candidates in your seat and find out what they really
believe in the area of animal welfare and let’s see if
we can make a start in NSW to better treatment for
all animals. We really cannot wait for another four

but as with every dog George will always be a hero to the family who loves him.

down well and I’m really confused by it all?

Remy must have been a very much loved pet
once, his manners are impeccable and he
seems to have no social issues. He would have
to be one of the easiest dogs I’ve encountered.
Remi has an enlarged heart requiring a small
dose of medication daily. He shows no sign of
this though as he trots along beside me, tail up
and wagging all the way.
He would suit most family combinations, I can’t
imagine any situation that would phase him,
although perhaps small children would not be
ideal. Remy doesn’t have a mean bone in his
little body and has obviously forgiven and
forgotten the fact that he was once left at a
pound, for whatever reason. Adopt him, for his
love could be just what the Doctor ordered.

My wish for Remy is that some

31 January 2015 – Wakefield Park
It was a fine and sunny morning which greeted a
happy group of petrol heads from the NSW
Production Touring Car club at Wakefield Park
Production Touring is primarily a racing club, with
members competing on a regular basis. Today,
however, was a season launch and passenger fun
day where we could say thank you to family,
friends, crew and sponsors. Today was also the
day that we would be working for our chosen
charity, Monika's Doggie Rescue.
About 200 people had the time of their lives as the
drivers took the expectant, sometimes nervous,
but always excited guests onto the track for hot
laps in the race cars. We did thousands of laps for
the passengers and got great "smiles per gallon".
Luci and her partner Simon attended to
represent DR and to share the race car
experience. If laughter and squeals of joy,
(squeals from Luci, not Simon), are any indication,
then these two had a ball. I took Simon for some
laps in a very special race car and I think the
smile will still be on his face.
We had a BBQ lunch and asked people to donate
or buy merchandise in support of DR. The wallets
opened wide and the money was flowing freely.
The highlights were someone buying a cap for
$100, another buying a ride in the DR Express
and young Koby doing his own collections for
the doggies. In all, this generous bunch of petrol
heads donated over $2,000 in cash and have
pledged to continue to support the cause.
A great day was had by all and a whole new
supporter base has been created. NSW
Production Touring Cars will definitely remain
involved with DR in what I hope will be a
beneficial relationship for the great work Monika
and the crew perform.

Greetings Dog lovers…
MEET MY DOG—ANGEL
My name is Joshua and let me introduce you all to
my dog, Angel. For ages, I've been begging my Mum for a
dog and now I'm 15 and my wish has finally come true.
Angel is a cheeky, but smart dog. I've already taught her: sit,
stay, drop and shake hands. She is a quick learner and she
even climbs in and gets all of her toys out of her large tub on
her own- that makes me laugh. Ever since her adoption, she
has been a bundle of joy. She is the best thing in the whole
world and I even want to ditch school every day to spend my
entire time with Angel. Josh

KIRSTY ROSS, EX DR DOGGIE, IS NOW A CELEBRITY!
Needless to say Kirsty has stolen the show. Art lovers are Kirsty was a Monika’s Rescue doggie (original

secondly ask “who is the lady in the chair?” Helen Ross in Kariong, Gosford. Kirsty was a
present from Helen’s daughter-in-law, Mara
Bontempo-Ross some 12 years ago. She is
the joy of Helen’s life and is obedient, faithful
and Helen’s constant companion.
Helen Ross was asked by artist Janelle
Thomas to sit for a portrait at her home in
Kariong on the Central Coast. During the
sitting Kirsty wanted to get in on the action and
assumed her usual position on Helen’s lap.
Kirsty refused to move and consequently
Kirsty was included in the painting. As a result
the title of the painting was changed from
“Helen Ross” to “Helen Ross and Kirsty”. The
painting has won a number of awards and has
been in the Gosford art gallery.
Kirsty is now as much a celebrity as Helen
Ross and is well known on the Central Coast
as Helen’s doggie from Monika’s Rescue.

SETTLING IN YOUR NEW DOG...
SOME USEFUL TIPS!
If you are thinking of adopting a rescue dog it is important to understand that many of these dogs have
been at DoggieRescue for some months or even longer. Some of the younger dogs may even be growing
up in kennel conditions ( like Louise, below, who was under 6 months when abandoned ).
They may not have been toilet trained, and
some have never even seen the inside of a
house before! Most have been used to living in
kennel conditions with little one-on-one attention.
Some have come directly to Doggie Rescue from
the pet shop window! Others have come from
traumatic home lives, where possibly a slap or a
shout was more usual than a loving pat or a soft
word. For these dogs, the concept of a loving
family will be a new one.
Louise waits for her forever family…. Please be patient! The natural inclination for
you and your family will be to shower your
new doggie with affection....
Most dogs will respond positively to this, but try to
give the dog some 'personal space' to settle in for
the first few days, to explore his environment and
to get to know your family. Don't be disappointed
if the dog is more interested in sniffing around the
yard than sitting on your lap! If you adopted a child
that had been in an orphanage for some time you
would know that they would need some time to
adjust to their new surroundings. It is the exactly
the same for dogs - although generally (and
thankfully!) the adjustment period is much shorter.
Honey Bee Chuck Perry
MARCH 2015 DOGGIERESCUE.COM MAGAZINE 35
A FEW BASIC RULES ARE:
• It's best if your new friend already knows you; try to get to Ingleside for a few walks during the paperwork
period and learn all you can about the dog from DoggieRescue volunteers.
• Have everything already prepared and set up at home, especially all the house rules which will form your
• Go for a short walk when you pick up the dog, for elimination and a bit of exercise before the car ride
(with harness and seat belt).
• If possible let the dog explore your yard first and hope it will eliminate where you wish it to - be prepared
with a big reward if successful. Take the dog outside at bedtime; if it eliminates, treat and/or praise, take
it to bed and withdraw without fuss.
• Settle with the dog in a comfortable room (with a bed or mat) and simply relax quietly with it; don't fuss
over the dog .Let it set the agenda and timetable for exploration and interaction at first.
• Walk your new dog through the house, slowly exploring
either on or off lead as seems appropriate for your dog.
Some other IMPORTANT tips are:
1. Limit excitement and strangers for the first few days;
set up routines and keep life quiet until the dog has
settled in, then gradually return to more normal levels
of activity and start introducing the dog to different
people under controlled conditions.
2. Start training immediately! At the first feed ask for a sit Casper
or stay or wait. If it does not know “sit” teach it before the
first walk and use it as the "please" command for all
situations you can think of.
3. Limit the first walks to the neighbourhood, on lead.
4. If you have children, don't let them overwhelm their new
friend, and don't let the dog intimidate them in any way.
5. Use lots of quiet praise with your new friend, and also Having their own blanket can be comforting to
teach it to be comfortable without you around—start a doggie in a new, stressful situation.
leaving it early on for short periods (with chews and toys).
And always Be Patient, Loving, Kind and also Firm and Consistent.

FOXIES ARE FABULOUS,
FUN LOVING COMPANIONS.
Fox Terriers, or cross of that breed, are
not for the sedate owner. Mischievous
puppies they grow into small dogs who
need an owner prepared to frolic with
them for if ever a breed of dog enjoys life,
it is this one. Dogs who are at their
happiest in their families company, who
love to play but enjoy their cuddles too.
Easy care, sometimes naughty but never
boring. Have you been owned by one?

to meet his perfect family.
LOVED TO PIECES
“ He is so
we’re not sure
how we lived
Kaiser are Paige
12yrs & Tia 15yrs
Paige met Kaiser online - it was love at first sight.
Written by Melissa Heard
Our 12 year old daughter Paige saw a photo of Kaiser on the Doggie Rescue website and fell in
love. She nagged and nagged for months to go and meet him. Eventually her nagging paid off!
We made an appointment with Kaiser loves our pool, so we bought him his own pool to keep him out of ours!
Monika to meet him. When we
arrived at Doggie Rescue,
Monika brought us Kaiser and
all four of us instantly fell in love
with him. Unfortunately, he
wasn’t keen for a walk (he has
a damaged hock) so we just sat
with him and gave him lots of
pats, which he thoroughly
loved. We just knew we had to
take him home. The four of us
were a little nervous as we still
had to ask Monika if we could
keep him – if she had said
“No”, there would have been
lots of tears! But her decision
was positive and Kaiser came
home with us that day.
