    I've been overseas and only got back a week and half ago. My trip sidelined my memory for a bit and then I had other issues to contend with. I should hang my head I know.

    Congratulations to you Anne and your little beauties.
    'Pet rescue' is great, and I'm glad we're seeing more advertising and stories about it. I just picked up the 'Pet rescue' calendar, I loved reading all the happy endings stories about pets in their new homes, they're all so cute too.

    I agree Magdalena. Pet Rescue are fabulous. Shell and the team have taken an idea and made so many inroads with the public it astounds me!

    Personally, I think they should be nominated for a Pride of Australia Medal in 2010.

    Congratulations Anne, It must be wonderful to have the fur babies in a magazine. Can't wait to see the scan and read the article.

    Anne, I would like to say this through private messaging but I don't know how, so here it goes.

    You are seriously oneofmy heroines, It's part of my dream to run a rescue, and your pugs have completely stole my heart. I always thought I wanted a 'cute little pug puppy' but now I would love to give a loving home to a golden oldie.

    Thank you for what you do.

    Thank you Disney, what a lovely thing to say. I have really enjoyed helping out our canine friends.

    I have always adored the Pug breed, and after initially getting into rescue as a foster carer and helping all different breeds, I saw the need to help Pugs. By this time I already had my boys, Boof, who we purchased as a pup and Monte, a rescued Pug with epilepsy from Vic, so adding a few more for periods of time seemed to work in well.

    I have wound down my rescue though now (as of Sept) and only take in the urgent and severe cases, which are thankfully far fewer in number. I have a wonderful friend who is taking over the role of assisting the other Pugs.

    Rescue can be very emotionally draining, not to mention the drain on your finances and time. I didn't take donations and so all of the money had to come from my own pocket. Pugs in particular can be really costly in Vet fees.

    For example, the rescue Pugs in the pic had the following Vet work;
    Lilly - xray on swollen leg, pain killers, skin scraping and pathology, antibiotics, desexing, dentistry, eye drops, heart worm test and vaccination (approx $600)
    LuLu - Brachycephalic surgery ($550)
    Olivia - Brachycephalic surgery, long term antibiotics for UTI, dentistry, heart worm tests and several urine analysis tests (approx $665)

    None of the above includes the worming, flea treatments, heartworm preventatives, special diets or vitamins, creams or shampoos that I purchase to assist them with their problems.

    My weekends were spent doing house checks (I refused to re-home a Pug without viewing where they will be living), collecting Pugs and delivering Pugs, taking them to the Vet, assessing them, washing and caring for them. It doesn't leave a lot of time for much else

    I hope this doesn't sound like a whinge as rescuing is the most enjoyable and fulfilling thing you can do. When you see a dog come to you in a miserable state and you watch that dog blossom, it invokes such sheer pleasure and is so very uplifting.

    Disney - if you ever choose to start up a rescue, I'd be happy to help you out with advice and templates and things.
