Complied by D O G. Such a short, simple word which can
come to mean so much. They are our friends
and companions. Our dog fills the lonely hours
and lifts our spirits with a wag of their tail. Dogs
help us to relax, exercise, meet new friends -
and they make us laugh! Dogs also teach us
responsibility, and the commitment of being in
charge of another living being. What else makes
dogs so special in our world? One look into
those trusting eyes and you have the answer…
it’s unconditional love. Dogs give us so much
and ask for so little in return. A full belly, a comfy
bed, a little attention and kind words. Some dogs
do not even get that, and still give their love.
As we start the brand new year of 2018 it is appropriate to tell a few stories of ex DoggieRescue
dogs and what they have come to mean to their families. How life can change just because….

Do you know what happened to me?
It was the day after Christmas and I
got lost. It was awful. I was scared.
We had visitors and the gate was left
open. I decided to go exploring and I
ran and I ran, but then I looked and I
did not know where I was. No
friendly neighbours houses. No dogs
barking at me that I knew. I was lost.
I tried to follow a few people but they ignored me and one man
even shooed me away and yelled at me. I ran and I ran...and
was even MORE lost. What was I going to do? I was shaking.
The road was busy...should I cross it...the car skidded...the
driver screamed...I ran and I ran...a lady tried to grab me but
my collar come off. Now I was really, really scared.
Do you know what happened? I saw my doggie friend Bart and
his Dad. “Bart, Bart...I’m lost, help me!” I barked. His Dad’s nice.
He bent down and patted me and then picked me up. How did
he know I needed a cuddle? He rang on his phone and then..
Mum was there. She was crying. She hugged me. I was safe.
I have learnt a valuable lesson. It’s not about doing silly things,
we all do those, ( I seem to do more than most!!! ) it’s about how
important FRIENDSHIP is. My friends saved me, they were
there when I needed them. I was so lucky! C/U Chips

FUNDRAISER FROM Look at
KINDERGARTEN CLASS what we
AT ST. STEPHENS … brought!
Teacher Kara Brailey, from St WOW!
Stephen's Kindergarten at
Belrose had been to DR and
walked a dog a few weeks
ago. She thought it would be
good to get the kids on board
with a fund-raising effort to
create a Christmas Hamper
for the dogs at DR.
These 4-5 year olds did jobs
at home to raise money…
and they then went on an
excursion, with the DR wish
list, to Glenrose shopping
Centre to buy the goodies.
Thank you….THANK YOU!
THANK YOU! They
created 2 overflowing laundry
baskets of goodies. Some of
the teaching assistants also
brought in items for the shelter
- dog beds and blankets...and
THAT’S JUST AMAZING!!!!
They have all settled in well and enjoy their
daily walks and outings, especially in the
boat—see Tarak with me! They love playing
with each other and giving each other kisses
and licks. They are a family and we are so
glad that we adopted them all. Dean age: 14
We adopted our dogs from DoggieRescue. Lexi is the mum, Travis
and Tarak are her puppies. We did not want to separate them.

THE DAYS OF LOSS
“ LACHIE’S STORY” Bonnie and her puppies
Rest In Peace, dear Lachie.
Turtle, or as he was more
commonly known to us as Lachie,
left us suddenly early in December.
There were no warning signs. He
collapsed when he went to his
yard. We all came to his side but
he died within minutes. Nathan,
one of our kennel hands, tried to
resuscitate him...but it was to no
avail. We were all in state of shock and denial. How
could this so suddenly happen? Our vets at Collaroy
said it was heart related or an aneurism. They did an
examination but nothing was revealed.
Lachie was born with us in Nov 2012. Bonnie his
mother came pregnant from Blacktown pound and
had her puppies at DoggieWood. All the pups were
adopted from us but sadly 3 were returned, including
Lachie, Jax and Tabitha ( pictured below as pups ).
Another we had returned for a short while though went
back to the family. Libby our kennel manager at the time
and dog trainer did a lot of work keeping in touch with
the families as the puppies all showed some degree of
nervousness and needing committed, experienced
“ Lachie, even though you might have been nervous
and more tricky to handle, we still loved you and cared
for you to the best of our abilities and you have left a
deep hole in our hearts. You lived a happy life at
DoggieWood and knew you were loved and a part of
our family.” Monika

THE DAYS FILLED WITH JOY Some of our beautiful 2017 Mummies & pups below...
“ SAGE’S STORY ” Sponsor: “ In loving memory of Penny!” Stefanie
A very heavily pregnant Staffy x 3yrs was
rescued from a pound on 11/11/17. In fact so
heavily pregnant was this poor girl that she had
difficulty walking, her belly would sway from side
to side, although she must have been worried and
stressed not once did her tail stop wagging. We
named this beautiful girl “Sage” and on the 19/11
her labour started. Throughout the day she had
10 pups - 5 boys and 4 girls( the smallest girl did
not survive). Nine living puppies, no wonder her
belly was so big!
DoggieRescue has cared for many puppies
during 2017—some with mothers and some
without. But for her stoic nature and her loving
personality Sage is definitely our…
