Dear Readers,

Our long term residents Rosie and Marbles
( cover pets ) who know the ropes well
around here are inviting you to join in some
happy Halloween celebrations and the launch
of our 2017 Calendar.

You have had a peek at the cover page of the
calendar with Harriet and know some of the
successful pin up stars who were announced
last month. All our amazing entrants in the
calendar competition have helped us put
together this beautiful calendar to express our
love to the animals and help DoggieRescue
continue its lifesaving work. This calendar is our
major fundraiser for the year and our goal is to
sell all copies to raise $60,000. You can
pre-order your copy today and ensure you are
amongst the first to receive it.

Our Beautiful Boy Zorro

By Vicky Lee

It was 3 years in August since we brought Zorro home. I remember he was the last dog I saw, my last
choice at Monika’s that day. My family and I had two Maltese Terriers in the past and I went to Doggie
Rescue looking for another ‘Fluffy’.

The Fluffies I met earlier in the day did not get Yes, he has full access to the whole apartment and

Jack Russell X and Teddy, a 3 year old Mini
Pomeranian at the time) so it came down to Zorro.
I was not entirely convinced Zorro was the kind of
dog for me that is, until I saw him come out with his
handler. My heart sank when I saw how scared
and unsure he was and from the moment the
handler placed Zorro in my arms and he rested his
head on my shoulder, I knew he was the one I
wanted to give a forever home to.

It took almost a year before I felt Zorro had fully
adjusted to life in the inner city. He was very
frightened at first by loud noises and the general
busyness of inner city living. He is a very brave boy
and we worked on his confidence and I am happy
to report that Zorro has settled in nicely. He cannot
wait for our morning walks before I head to work
and knows we will go out again when I come home
in the afternoon. My neighbourhood is very dog
friendly and Zorro has made many doggie friends
in the area. He loves going up to people to say
hello and get a pat. When he is indoors, he loves
to sleep on the rug in front of the balcony
especially when it is a sunny day. At night, he
loves to snuggle on the sofa.

tenants moved out - his family just packed up and
turned their back on this little dog. He was abandoned

it worse is that Mr Spok is blind. He was rescued by
Doggie Rescue but waited many months before
meeting his special forever family.

also affect his sociability with new

Hello Kids,

I love dogs (all animals!) and was really
keen to help out. A couple of weeks ago I
came up with the idea that I would get
myself a job, and donate the money I earn
to the dogs at Monika’s Doggie Rescue.
The last couple of weeks I have been
working really hard, walking neighbours’
dogs and reading a lot of books (I am given
1 dollar for every book I read) to be able to
contribute. Ebba 7 years

We are all really proud of what you have
accomplished Ebba:) Pictured with

Dogs TRICK OR TREATING—Are you dressing your doggie
up for Halloween? Here’s some important tips...

• NEVER leave a pet in a costume alone and unsupervised.
• TIGHT ELASTICS on the costumes can get lost in the pet's

hair, potentially causing owners to overlook them, leading to
swelling and pain in the area of the elastic.
• INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTIONS may be caused if pets, left
alone in a costume, chew it up and ingest it. This is especially
dangerous for any plastic/rubber parts of a costume.

Remember costumes may look cute but is your dog miserable?
