Adoption update: Little gorgeous Mia
Rescued from Hawkesbury pound in 2010. I remember how shy and timid she was back then
Well done Marina for giving her a fantastic life with lots of furry friends to keep her company
Thanks for sharing these photos too
Btw. Mia was a surrender to the pound . Cannot remember the reason but totally their loss
This is the last photo I took of Belle this evening
As it is obvious I cannot sleep and have her on my mind
I pray she pulls through another night
I will be calling first thing in the morning – this waiting game is just horrible.
I look forward to the day I can breath easy knowing she is out of the woods
Another cow story……for anyone interested
I found this on my blog from when we first moved into this house and was my first real love/hate relationship with these bovines.
I hope you can read the text, basically one month into living here…. I had an in invited guest in my yard, just a few meters from my kitchen. Nov2009
My two dogs (Tilby and Murphy, may they RIP) were just as freaked out as I was :0
They were hiding in the laundry with the door wide open
Adoption update: Poppy from Blacktown pound, Jan2010
It’s hard to imagine she was a long termer, but found the best forever home she needed with Mel
Thanks Mel for giving her a good home – I will add her original photos
‘With it being three years next month that you introduced me to the love of my life I thought I’d share some update photos with you! This is the beautiful Poppy now..’
Maybe you will understand why these cows freak me out so much……
This afternoon, I had a very scary cow moment…. Yep that’s right, I was trapped in a dog run to get away from these cows. I could not get back into the house as there were at least 15 cows blocking my way…..
I had gone out to check up on the dogs and noticed Sophia walking calmly between the cows :0….. She had managed to eat through the very thin wooden wall of her enclosure (all fixed up now – these things hardly ever happen here) Lucky for the cows, for her and for me – there was no dramas.
So as I got her away from the cows, I found myself stuck between the house gate and the dog shed for about 10 minutes contemplating how I was going to get past them
I got all my courage together…. Tied a plastic bag onto a broom and flapped it towards them…..started a stamped
Sure got my adrenaline going. Never a dull moment at BDR
Update of Belle….
Good news and some not so good news .
The good news….. Belle seems to still be fighting and hanging in there – day 4 and she is still with us.
More good news….she ate a little bit of chicken today – it was fantastic to witness
Little to no diarrhoea with blood
Bad news….. On top of fighting the parvo virus, poor Belle also has kennel cough which isn’t helping at all
I am about to head back to the vets with more chicken and some human grade mucus breakdown to see if it helps any
THANK YOU to everyone well wishes and support. This is helping so much
