them a forever home so that they can experience

Roland helps Bear express some of the resolutions
that are in his head. Read them carefully as your
own dog I am sure would be delighted with them!
It is so lovely to catch up with Josie, 16 years later!
In 2003 we had only been operational a few years
and still finding our feet. Josie looks amazing for
19yo! Then there was Jordy who has spent most
of his life since adoption sailing around the world
on a yacht! Jordy was then, one of our more
difficult dogs that nobody wanted.
In those days our dogs were mostly small but we
cared nevertheless for many tricky dogs with
behavioural issues that only the very experienced
could cope with.
“ We have so many cute smiling faces looking at
you wanting a forever home. Step out and make a
New Year’s resolution to adopt a dog and have a
new best friend!”
Not only do we look back on the dogs we cared for years
ago but some of our supporters like Jane (p18) share their
many sponsor dogs over the years. Thank you Jane.
This month we have an amazing article from 12yo Chloe
Piper who shares her insights into droughts and rural life.
Her maturity is astonishing.
Corinne has written a lovely article (p24) looking back on
the special adoptions of 2019 and reminding me that every
month of that year we found at least one home for one of
our more damaged dogs who needed a special family. We
have a lovely catch up with Tia ( was Tara ) who was
waiting for a home more than a year.
Long term girl Angel was adopted in August 2019

As we look back on the year that has past we reflect on some of
the beautiful dogs who have passed away. Most through old age
with their loved families by their side—all enjoying happy, fulfilled
lives. They will be missed forever by the ones who have loved
them. I want to mention a special girl called Kiki who was in such
an appalling condition she never had the chance to live to grow
old. Let’s remember her and the short time she spent with us….
she was only four….
Kiki was a little Staffy girl who
came into our care about June
2019 in the most appalling
condition I had ever seen in 22
years of rescue. She stayed at
our clinic and I never met her.
We did what we could for her
but we soon learnt she had
advanced mast cell tumours all
over her body. We made her
comfortable and she felt better
than when she came in but
there was no future.
Dr. Dee said “ Here is a photo
of Kiki. She was such a great
girl with a fabulous, happy
personality. Always had a tail
wag and a wiggle. Thanks to
you Monika she enjoyed her
last weeks warm, fed, loved
and comfortable. Her cancer
was just too advanced and
today she went to sleep
peacefully after enjoying ice
cream and warm chicken
nuggets. She was loved by us
all at The Cottage Animal
Hospital and we felt honoured
to care for her and help her on “ Not all our rescues have the happy ending we all pray for. But each and

quality time so that they know what it feels like to be loved.” Monika

With the year 2020 upon us let us take the
time to go back seventeen years….
In 2003 DoggieRescue was still in its fledgling stages
operating at the back of a vets in Homebush and
rescuing mostly small dogs. DoggieRescue magazine
was a grainy 16 page newsletter produced in black and
white. At this time in different kill pounds two special
dogs were waiting to be rescued. This is their story….
(1.) MEET JOSIE WHO CELEBRATED
HER 16TH ‘GOTCHA’ YEAR IN 2019!
We adopted Josie with Finn from Doggie
Rescue in 2003 and we couldn’t be more
delighted to have celebrated her 16th
gotcha year in 2019. Josie is estimated to
now be 19-20 years of age! Josie and Finn
adored each other, quickly forming a very
close bond. They settled into our family life
and both took our three year trip to the UK
in their stride. Having gathered her strength
and confidence from Finn she then became Josie with best mate

time goes so quickly. How things have changed!
“In 2003 I was yet to become the editor of Doggie
Rescue magazine. At that time I was a part time Kennel
Manager at Homebush and did not become the editor
until the following May 2004. To think that these two
special dogs should have died in a pound way back then
and are still enjoying life is simply amazing.” Corinne
(2.) MEET JORDY WHO CELEBRATED HIS
13TH ‘GOTCHA’ YEAR IN 2019!
Howl-o to all my mates in Australia! My name is
Jordy and I am looking forward to celebrating my
14 Gotcha Day in 2020. I was born in 2001-02
and was dumped at the Homebush pound in
mid-2003. Monika's DoggieRescue saved me
(yay!) but I had extreme fear aggression – I
couldn't handle being around small children, or
motorcycles, or other dogs. Or men. After a year
and a half at DoggieRescue, with no one wanting
to adopt me, volunteer Margaret Gonne decided
to foster me and I started to get over my fears.
And about a year after that …
Laura and Steve came to Australia on a sailboat.
They saw a poster about me at the Mona Vale
Library. The poster said I love to swim (boy, do I!).
They decided to adopt me, despite the fact that
I bit Steve.
“ I got to sail and swim and run on
beaches in 17 different countries.”
“ Throw off the bowlines. Sail away from
safe harbour. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
This was all great fun, although I did have some
trouble. I had tick fever twice, and once I fell off the
deck of the boat when it was “on the hard.” We
visited some awfully poor countries where dogs
have very sad lives. My folks started to rescue
pups and find them homes. That was pretty crazy
for me, having puppies running around on our little
JANUARY 2020 DOGGIERESCUE.COM MAGAZINE 17
While in Palau we ended up rescuing, fostering and/or finding homes
for 52 pups. About 20 of them actually spent some time with us on our
12-meter yacht, ZEN, something which I tolerated as best I could.
November and December 2013 were exceptionally busy months, as
two of the local dogs had litters (one a litter of 10!). The moms weren't
exactly stray dogs, but "yard" dogs -- no particular person claimed to
be owner, but various workers at nearby scuba businesses would
feed them leftovers from the tourists' lunches and let them sleep
under storage containers. I'm happy to report that we found homes
with loving families for all the pups, and the mothers were spayed
Two years ago we were living on an island called Labuan, in the
South China Sea, when a man told my folks that he wanted to buy
our boat. Laura and Steve decided it was finally time to return to the
United States. I was stuck in a travel crate for the 38-hour trip from
Labuan through Kuala Lumpur and Tokyo to the USA – ugggh!
Sailing is a much better way to travel than flying on aero planes.
Now I am 18 years old and like to spend my days tottering around
outside, sleeping ( a lot ) and eating vegetables.I may have had a
sad start in life but looking back I have had an amazing life full of “ You can see that standing watch was
adventures and it’s not over yet! Here’s to a Happy New Year in 2020.
very demanding work.” Jordy
Me with my girlfriend Eva
As we begin a brand new year where our adoptions will reach beyond 13,000 it is wonderful to reflect back
to a time in 2003 when DoggieRescue had no permanent address, no Facebook nor Instagram support and
when Monika found homes for dogs only through her phone from a very small demountable in a backyard
of a veterinary practice in inner Sydney. To think that there are at least two dogs still living and being
loved from that era is just amazing and a great way to begin a positive start to 2020.

Readers may remember reading Chloe’s articles in the KIDZ CLUB pages during 2019. In this, a two part article,
Chloe will touch on some very important issues facing animal owners, especially as Chloe lives in a rural area, and
her maturity and comprehension is simply amazing. Chloe is just 12 years old.
SHARING MY THOUGHTS ON IMPORTANT ANIMAL ISSUES
WRITTEN BY: CHLOE PIPER
Hi my name is Chloe and I am writing
about some of the issues that many
animals and their owners face.
The escalating problems
caused by drought.
With the lack of rain the ground dries
up and grass doesn’t grow which
means that the horses, cows and
other grass eating animals have
nothing to eat. The owners then have
to buy food for their animals which
usually is harder to come by and
much more expensive for the owners,
sometimes forcing them to put down
or give away their animals. The fires
also pose a problem for animals, a
large majority of the time home
owners aren’t given much time to
leave or grab their animals forcing
them to desert their animals and pets.
It is especially hard for the larger pets
with many owners leaving them or
even braiding a nametag and number
into their manes and tails and leaving
the gates open in the hope that they
will be reunited again with their four

Hi to all my friends at Monika's,
I've been asked to write and let you all know
how I'm going since I was adopted in March
2019. It's been nearly a year and I've settled
in to my new life so happily. I never thought
that would happen, I was with you for such a
long time. I especially want to thank Jane
West who sponsored me the whole time I
waited for a home, she never gave up on me.

me and there’s a lot to love!”

Mum takes me everywhere with her
except to work. I don't like it when
mum goes to work but she says she
has to and needs me to mind our
spot on the couch for her while
she's gone, and I'm so good at that.
Sometimes when mum's at work, I
try to help with the chores. I clean
off anything left on the bench and
sort out the rubbish if mum forgets
to take it out to the bin. I've cleaned
the pantry when mum left the door
open for me, but mum wasn't very
happy about that. I got into mum’s
shea butter—how was I to know it
wasn’t peanut butter? I've tried
making her coffee a few times, but
that never ends well and mum really
would prefer I didn't, she said. So
I'm very helpful around the house
but mum said my rap sheet is “ I promise I’ll never eat a TV remote control again!”

So what do I do now? Well…
• We go for long walks and car rides. I love the car. We go
on picnics and to the beach.
• We get Pizza! I love Pizza!! and it comes right to our
door. The pizza man isn't scared when i bark anymore.
He knows I'm yelling for Pizza now. Mum says I'm very
vocal. I never knew there was anything as wonderful as
Pizza, except for my family.
• We visit my pack sister Kylie, and she comes to see me.
We have so much fun playing. She Tia-sits me sometimes
when mum needs to go shopping without me. I have
another pack sister called Amber. She taught me how to
spoon on the couch. I love squashing her.
I still don't like any 4 legged people, but mum said I've
improved so much and she is so proud of me because I really
do try, but it's still very hard for me. Mum says my angel wings
“I’ve got LOTS of toys!” slip a bit sometimes.
It's my first Christmas with my family and I've got the biggest stocking and the most presents. I'm getting so excited!
Mum says it's easy to spoil me because I deserve it. My mum loves me so much, and she is so happy she has me. I
am too! Thank you all for taking such good care of me while I waited for my mum to find me. Big sloppy kisses. Tia
We start not only a brand new year, but a new decade, and DoggieRescue heads towards 13,000 adoptions
going forward with hope and determination that the many unwanted pets who will be rescued in 2020 will
find, just like Tia, a family to love and spoil them with kindness and patience. Here’s to a Happy New Year!

sloppy kisses! I need a home with a yard for me to play in,
