• • • Postcard from “ROSIE JACOB” aka Shortcake feature
We adopted Rosie (was Shortcake) on
Australia Day 2016. We were nervous to
bring her home as she seemed
frightened to get into our car and a little
anxious by nature. Ceallai from Monika’s
Rescue came a couple of days later to
help me to settle Rosie in. She instantly
liked to be in the basket we bought for
her. We had a few toileting accidents for
the first couple of weeks, after that she
found her routine and has stuck to it. We
met Ceallai again in the park for a
training session, which was so helpful to
settling her into our family.
“ I strictly told my husband and son that
Rosie would not be allowed on the beds or
sofas……..well that did not last very
long……….she has found her way into all
our hearts and we cannot resist her!! ”

Roland Briefrel, a long time supporter
of DoggieRescue, is an educator and
an animal welfare advocate who is
not hesitant to speak about topics for
animals who have no voice.
Brain scans have discovered evidence
that dogs process language in a similar
way to humans and are only truly
happy if a praising tone of voice is
matched by the actual words spoken.
If this is true, then the next time you
make a critical comment about your
dog, you might want to be well out of
earshot. All those comments about
doggie breath and the need to cut back
on those fattening doggie treats will
need to be made in the next room or
next suburb – because we all know
how good a dog’s hearing is!!
New research shows that dogs can praise that the dog was truly happy. While this was only the dogs’ “word-

PLEASE ADOPT CLEOPATRA - SHE’S A REALLY GREAT DOG!!!
Hello Readers, Lachlan Hargraves
Cleopatra is adorable. My kids and I came to DR ( See also p9 )
and walked her recently and she wasn't shy with
us - I think she knew we loved dogs and she was
so happy to come and play. She's a sweet kissy
girl and smart, she understood the following
commands first time: sit, drop, crawl, roll over,
stay and come! She'd be great for someone who
wanted to teach their dog some tricks or go to
dog club/agility or equally happy to run around the
yard with the kids. A great kid- sized dog, I can
see she'd be in on all the action, but wouldn't be
knocking anyone over. Cleo was also happy to
just sit down and have cuddles with the children.
If we didn't have enough dogs already, she'd be
coming home with us. :) Fiona Hargraves

• Feature REMEMBERING KENNY MOORE by Amanda Moore
From Monday however he went downhill very quickly
and by Wednesday he hadn't eaten in a few days. The
vet advised me that his heart was failing. He was in
and out of consciousness. I held him in my arms and
kissed his head and told him over and over how much I
loved him. I am shocked and devastated it happened
so fast. We've had heart dogs (Norman & Harry) who
lived for months after diagnosis. I thought Kenny would
have that too.
Our house is lonely, his bed is empty. I miss his
little face and having him follow me. I miss holding
him and kissing him. I can’t believe he left me so
quickly. I am thankful though that we got to be
there with him as he passed, at home in my arms,
his most favourite place in the world. I’m so very
thankful to have known him.
“ My darling Kenny was sweet and gentle. Kenny was
loyal and loving and his family was his whole world. He
was only truly happy when he was with me and I loved
making him feel safe. He loved to cuddle in my arms.
He had one little tooth that stuck out and his tongue
was always hanging out. He had a cheeky side and
would rumble on his back, legs flying. I loved watching
him do that, because for those moments he forgot
about his anxiety and was so joyous.” Amanda
I am beyond devastated to let you know that my darling Relaxing with
Kenny, my baby, went to heaven last night…. his Grandad...
We knew Kenny had a heart murmur but he was showing
no signs at all of anything worrying and he had a check
up at the vet a month ago and got the all clear, we were
told he didn't need meds at that stage. Last Monday I
worried about him as he was breathing rapidly so we
took him to the vet, tests were run and he was diagnosed
with heart failure. The vet said we were lucky we didn't
lose him. I don't understand how this happened so
quickly after getting the all clear. He was put on the usual
heart meds which he was such a good boy taking and he
seemed to be doing well. Sunday he went to my parents
house and pottered in their yard and cuddled with his
grandparents. He had dinner and rumbled on his back.

A collaboration by Jess Sandstrom and Mark Lawrence
Precious Penny. Where do I even begin! This big, boofy girl has been a
firm favourite for many since she arrived at Doggie Rescue in the throes
of adolescence in January 2015. With no apparent basic training and
already spending time in a shelter at under 12 months of age, one has
to wonder what Penny's life may have been like before she came to us.
Although her jovial spirit hasn't been dampened by this rocky start, the
day to day stress of shelter life does tend to get Penny down in the
dumps. And really who could blame her! Try as we all might to make
the lives of the animals in our care as rich as they can be it just doesn't
cut it when compared to a real home with a real family who are there
just for Penny.
In the time that Penny has been with us she has learnt a great deal.
From basic obedience to the basics of life! Such as how to play with
toys, how to sit, how to wait for her food and is slowly but surely
learning how to exercise self control and not jump on the humans she
holds close to her heart (which includes ALL the humans!) Penny
adores water and loves to splash around in the clamshell pool
provided in her yard during the day. Even more enjoyable are the
days out to Narrabeen Lake with one of our dedicated volunteers
Kirsty who says "Penny loves to play in the water as long as she can
touch the bottom and you go in with her so she can play games of
trying to pull you in total and splashing you till you're that wet that you
should have just gone swimming anyway! She also wags her tail
every time she sees a human and believes their only role in the world
is to take time away from their daily chores to stroke her."
“ Aside from being beautiful, lovable and loving Penny is
also very trainable! If approached in a positive and
consistent manner then it should not take too much to show
this young lady what real life is supposed to be like. It may
also be beneficial to let her know too that she is actually a
really large dog because no one seems to have told her yet!
However, she does give fantastic cuddles once she is in
your lap so I haven't bothered to let our dainty Miss Penny
know yet... It can be our little secret.” Jess

• Feature MEET MY SPONSOR DOGGIES RECI & LENA by Lucy Beaman
There are many old dogs who are discarded
in pounds by their families as past their use
by date. I have been a DoggieRescue
supporter for a while now and love to help
the senior dogs to find their forever homes
through sponsorship. I also have adopted
two old dogs, Tyson and Gramps, who have
both passed away now and were so special
to me. Even though I did not have them a
long time I will always remember that their
last months were the happiest of their lives.
Adopt a senior pet—
they have so much love to give.
RECI Foxy x 10yrs Female & LENA Foxy x

THE BRADY GIRLS & THEIR
PROUD FOSTER MUMMY
On the 16 September we received three, one week old pups that were dumped outside a vet clinic without their
Mum. It was a struggle to get them fed. We tried tube feeding, bottle feeding and syringe feeding but none were
particularly successful. We thought they were some sort of Staffy X pups. At the time they arrived we had a
Chihuahua x Mum called Lexi with 4 pups about 4 weeks of age of her own. We tried to see if she would accept
them and being the beautiful little Mummy that she is...she did! At the time those pups were only slightly smaller
than her own. She started to clean them and she fed them. We were so relieved! We named them Cindy, Marcia
and Jan from the Brady Bunch as they were now a blended family. The girls grew and they are now feeding on their
own but will always try and get some Mummy milk as that is always the best! They are now 5 weeks old and soooo
healthy. We have received lots of kind donations of puppy milk and a litre pack disappears within seconds amongst
all 7 pups! Thank you to all our supporters for helping them! They will all be up for adoption soon…

Olive is a sweet girl who is very friendly
with other dogs and walks well on lead.
She has a lot of energy and loves to roll
in the mud.
Olive can be reserved with strangers and
might take some time to trust and will
need someone willing to give her that
time. She is very curious but is especially
fearful of big young men. When she does
trust you, it is a very loving giving
relationship. Olive loves her pats and
cuddles and will shower you with love.
Olive is very energetic and would suit a
family that is active.
Olive loves company “ EVERY dog needs
and when you are
that trusted person, to feel secure before
she is very easy their true personality
going. Don't be fooled shows through! ”
though, you need to
earn that trust, but when
you do, this girl will shine!

insurance on our website www.cottageanimalhospital.com.au for more about this topic.
• Suitable bedding such as washable rugs, cushions or blankets need to be provided in a
weatherproof kennel or indoors.
• A secure area such as a dog-proof yard is essential.
• All dogs need daily exercise and mental stimulation to help avoid behavioural and health
problems. Dogs view their human owners as being part of their pack and can develop behavioural
issues if they feel neglected or excluded. It is also vitally important that dogs are socialised with people
and other dogs from an early age in order to learn appropriate interactive behaviours.

Wh[t Dogs h[v_ T[ught M_….. By Luis Del Florio
What is the Nature? According to a Dictionary Definition it is: “the phenomena of the physical world collectively,
including plants, animals, the landscape, and other features and products of the earth, as opposed to humans or
human creations.” And here we have the crucial separation eloquently defined within the very books that we rely
upon to source the meanings behind words. “As OPPOSED to humans or human creations”. This sentence
in itself could be expanded to resemble the widespread assumption that we as a species are in conflict with
(because for the most part we are) rather than in communion and cooperation with The Nature. This separation
both carries with it the overtones of humanity’s assumption of superiority over The Nature and the resultant
ignorance it creates and perpetuates.
What do dogs have to do with this
and why does the writer keep saying
“The Nature”?! Ironically for a lot of
people domesticated animals are
