Marley our epileptic Labrador x Staffy continues the Easter
festivities on our contents page. He is such a beautiful gentle boy
who was left at the vets for euthanasia. Marley is now on a new
anti-seizure medication that is working well for him. What a
handsome young man! On the next pages we have pairs of
doggies on parade as couples -- Janice and Buffy, Tanami and
Ruby. All sweet easy dogs who want to stay with their lifelong
mate, so they are doing their best to attract your attention.

Long standing volunteer Joss has decided to do a 36 day trek over
Easter across the tip of Spain from Irun to Sanitago, SOLO. She
needs our support and words of encouragement. It can get very
lonely out there and very tiring. Send her your good wishes and
support ( p9 for details). You have no idea what that means to a
person trekking alone. She is doing this as a fundraiser for
DoggieRescue and hopes to raise $15,000. We are indeed blessed
to have such amazing and dedicated volunteers amongst us.

• • • Coral Moore feature



In this our 2017 Easter Edition of DoggieRescue
magazine we would like to share the story of a
much loved dog called Coral whose smiling face
graced our Easter cover in 2013. Coral finally found
love with an amazing couple who gave her story
the happy ending she truly deserved….

Dear Readers,

Last May, scrolling through your 'golden oldies' page on
your website I came across Coral’s profile. It had been
updated to say she was a quiet granny who was forgetful
and needed a gentle hand to show her the way. I instantly
knew Coral was meant to be a part of our senior doggie
family. I contacted Monika that day but when Ted (was
Ralph) was diagnosed with kidney failure I thought I should
wait a little. But I just cant help myself and we came to the
shelter and adopted Faith and Coral.

Coral settled in instantly and was so easy to care for and
love. Because of her dementia, we couldn’t leave her
unattended as she would always manage to get herself
stuck in places. Behind the lounge, under the chair, we
were always rescuing her and then giving her a big
smooch. Only the other week she got herself stuck behind
the TV unit. Hours later we couldn't work out why the TV
wouldn't turn on, we thought it had broken. It then clicked
that Coral had stepped on the power button! She was a
funny old lady.

Ever since we brought her home my main priority was
giving Coral so much love and all the things she so
deserved. She had lots of comfy beds in the house and
outside. I loved rugging her up in winter in all her pretty
jammies and covering her over in snuggly blankets at night.
At her first Christmas with us last year she looked so sweet
in her Santa hat and scarf ( see photo at left ).

and their families. Assistance Dogs such as Jason and Roxy
are changing the lives of physically and mentally disabled
people every day. While to many the contributions of these
dogs may seem trivial, the efforts of these inspiring animals
can mean so much more. To Teresa Brown, “it’s meant
independence, it’s meant involvement and engagement in
the community, being able to do normal, everyday things
that other families take for granted.”

For Assistance Dogs Australia to continue to make a difference in the lives of people with
disabilities now and into the future, the support of the community is critical. ADA is reliant on the
donations of generous individuals, corporate givers, and philanthropic organisations to provide
these vital services to the community. Your support as a volunteer, donor or corporate supporter
could prove invaluable. To support this unique organisation, ADA can be reached toll free at

ers ) has been awe-inspiring. Over the years you have always
put your hands up when we needed help, not only with the stalls
you ran but Ellen the beautiful quilts you have made and sold to
help raise funds. If only we could bottle your enthusiasm, your
willingness to raise funds despite many difficulties. You both
have never expected anything in return but just the knowledge
that the funds you raised helped and I want you to know how
grateful I am for the last 16 years. I know that you will still be
working hard each month delivering DoggieRescue magazines
to save us the postage (and be helping out when we need your
barbeque skills Ron)! Thank you from us all, but mostly for the
hundreds of dogs that you have helped along the way to finding
new families with your continued support.

Monika and all of the DoggieRescue family

• • • Postcard WHERE ARE THEY NOW Maxwell Davis

Waving… Dear Readers,
Here I come!!! Maxwell had been at Monika's Doggie Rescue for 5 years. When I went to
visit him he wouldn't walk up the road without being carried. I took him out
in the car and he was a completely different dog. It's been around 8 months
now since I adopted him and he is adored by everyone that meets him. Max
is 90% deaf. He is also short sighted. And he has a skin allergy to regular
food and is on a prescription diet. So training a deaf, ill sighted dog was a
little challenging but we have a code when he is off the leash which he
loves. He turns his head regularly and if I wave and squat down he comes
back to me! Our other sign language is sitting, laying, jumping up. We
haven't quite mastered the roll over but we're getting there. He’s very clever!

Maxwell loves a road trip and I've had him on the family farm which he also
loves, especially the cow poop!! Max is very attached to me, which is to be
expected, and is the only dog I know that can sit beside you when you're
eating and not beg and miraculously he ignores birds and cats completely.
Max is a dear little soul, I’m so glad I rescued him. We have one happy dog!

Margot Davis

Is the Easter
Bunny bringing
me a home?


dog won’t know the difference between their toys and
the toy Easter bunnies that abound at Easter. Any
stuffed toys that fill your Easter baskets need to be
dog safe ie: noses, eyes & decorations securely
fastened for small parts can come off and pose a
choking hazard for your pet.

5. EASTER GRASS: This is the

pretty shredded cellophane that
accompanies most Easter Egg baskets. As it
smells ‘chocolately’ dogs may be tempted to
ingest it and it can cause an obstruction or
perforation. Keep it out of reach of your pets or
don’t tempt fate by buying it.

6. FOIL: Most chocolate eggs come Brandy Irish Terrier x 10yrs

choking or obstruction hazard for your pet.
