Elvis is in the House

Instead of buying a pup from the store this Christmas, have you considered adopting from a shelter? Meet Elvis, an outgoing and excitable boy who is looking for someone to ‘love him tender’.

He is a 1 year and 3 month old Greyhound X. Elvis is $310 to adopt and is desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, wormed and health tested.

He is currently in a foster home, so for more information or to arrange to meet him please contact Lauren Mills on 9770 7525. His Animal ID is 308992.

Chrissie Gift ideas

Have you bought your furry friend a pressie for xmas yet? We’ve scoped the internet for some cool ideas to inspire you!

1. Animal Sounds Babble Ball- interactive ball that makes animal sounds when touched – your dog will think it’s alive.
2. Eskimo Dog Tent- for some serious doggy downtime.
3. Bubbletastic Dog Bubble Machine – no dog will be able to resist chasing the bacon-scented bubbles that fly out of this machine.
4. Petchup- a nutritional condiment to pour over their boring dry food.
5. Silly Dog Toys- these balls are attached to enormous tongues or moustaches. Toss the balls out and watch your dog bring it back with a dapper moustache or a silly enormous red tongue.

Cowardly police dog

A 2 year old Belgian Malinois, named Cash, was supposed to be the ninth member of the police force in the Oregon coastal town of Cannon Beach but he was dismissed from the force before seeing any action of gaining any glory.

Cash was skittish, afraid of heights and had a barking problem. Noises would scare him.

In my bed

Yesterday it emerged that dog owners are more likely to call their pet ‘baby’, allow it to sleep on their bed, and keep photographs of their pets.

According to s survey of 23,000 dog owners, a quarter admit treating their dog like a small child, while almost half confess to letting their dog spend the night on their bed.

Buckle up!

Did you know that it is a general driving offence across most of Australia to drive a motor vehicle with an animal on the driver’s lap or loose in the car – and that the offence can attract both a penalty and demerit points?

The Rufus & Coco Dog Seat Belt Attachment is the cleverly designed safety accessory that helps to protect both pets and passengers while travelling.

It prohibits dogs from distracting drivers, jumping out of a moving car’s window, and, in the unfortunate event of a car accident, the dog is secured.

The durable belt is adjustable in length and attaches safely with a metal caribiner to the pet’s harness or collar. The other end has a tongue that slips into the car’s regular seat belt holder. Once secured and adjusted to suit, dogs can sit, lie down and stand comfortably.

The belt fits most makes and models of current cars and is available exclusively at Woolworths for RRP $14.99.
