    I am making a question list here for Dora's carer should she ring me and I am up to over 10 questions now...and more coming as I go along. I am sure she will ask me heaps of questions, so I have made my list of things I need to know.

    It is all about finding the right home for the little girl and you can only help the situation by asking questions and it help the carer understand...yep, you have done your homework.

    DA...George looks divine!!!

    Thanks Cleas. WA is a very long way from us, though. I wouldn't think there would be much chance of finding a direct flight from there to here. Should it work out, he would have to have plane changes. It isn't the most ideal (as in the distance he would have to travel) but at least he is an adult who would possibly handle it much better than a younger dog or puppy.

    But look, the way I look at interstate travelling for dogs is that a couple of hours on a plane is not that much worse than some dogs who have to travel for sooo many long hours to reach their home in the same state.

    Incidentally Cleas, I have a question for you. There are always so many SBTs available for rescue. What is it about Dora that has touched you?

    Ok...we have been looking to get a rescue for some time now. We didn't just want to go out and get the first one we saw...we wanted to do it for the right reasons. Like with 10 year old Butch...nobody wanted him and we could have given him a forever home with people who understand the breed and love them to death.

    Dora...of course...is a sweet little girl. Her start in life has been horrendous no matter what breed she is. Having already nursed a dog back to physical and mental health after being abused...we kinda know what is involved.

    I do not work and can spend my day with her. We have the space...the time...the understanding of the breed...patience and lots of love to give her. My hubby understands what is involved due to her being scared of men.

    It will take a lot of work nursing her back to health...if she ever recovers, but the benefit at the end...seeing the trust they give you because of that...can not be described.

    She deserves the best of the best and I believe we can give that to her

    A beautiful post, Cleas. I too naturally think you and Steve are the perfect home for Dora. I hope the rescue association sees that as clearly as we all do.

    {Entire post not quoted } Just wanted to say that this is how I felt when I saw a poor little boy listed as 15 at Renbury. After having him for just over a couple of weeks, he is obviously enjoying life as much as a really old and neglected boy can. He had his first check up yesterday and as the vet who saw him originally is on holidays, I booked in with another vet. He said he had read all the notes made by the first vet and was wondering what on earth he was going to see. He was very very pleasantly surprised - LOL.

    Back on topic - looking forward to reading about when you get the dog/s home DA

    Thanks Florence. We shall see what happens after I have discussed him with the rescuer. What does one call them?

    I think I may have confused Anne and others a tad with my comment that I was notified about a couple of dogs. I have no intention of getting several dogs - just one -but was looking at a couple of different dogs. That's what I meant.

    Speaking of that, all these ppl who have a fair amount of dogs - how do you do that? I thought unless you had a council licence to do so only two dogs are allowed to be owned at the same time in any city or town. Has that changed or something? I think I must be past my used-by date.

    In Newcastle City Council you can have as many dogs as you like...all they ask is that you look after them. Here in my Council you can have 4 dogs unless special breeders permit has been issued

    Wow. Times have changed. Think it 's still two here. Always see the ads in the paper when someone is applying to keep more than 2, so guess it is the same here as where we were in Qld.

    Amazing how councils/areas differ.
