Wow this looks like a happy place for doglovers to meet and share information. I'll give it a burl, so to speak. Can never have too many contacts when rescuing!
I know quite a few of you already from other places. Pleased to meet the rest of you. What to tell you about myself?
I am a fourth generation dog breeder, even though I haven't bred any litters now for several decades! I can be found in the showring handling other people's dogs and on the road transporting rescues about.
I usually have at least one foster here (at the moment I have a high drive young kelpie cross she is almost ready for rehoming ) and often dogs in transit for rescue or to be trained or shown.
Right now my own little permanent pack consists of:
The Boss Cat: DSH RikkiTikkiTavi aged 11. Bosses every dog and me , too!
Senior Puglady: Boots, a black aged 15, been with me about 9 years now since she was retired from showing and maternal duties.
The Personality Pug: Cheddar, aged 4, apricot fawn and my first and only (so far) foster failure.
The Exchange Student: Swank, aged 14 weeks, fawn puglet who is here to be campaigned in Victoria for her breeder. She will be with us for a year or so, thus she is an honorary permanent LOL.
I am in rural Victoria, west of Ballarat. I am very glad to have found this little community!
